The dead won’t stay dead and the Frog Cult may be to blame.
In the world of Hellboy, that means you call in the B.P.R.D., or Bureau For Paranormal Research and Defense, the agency which used to employ the big, red dude from hell and still features such film-famous characters as Liz Sherman, the pyrokinetic, and Abe Sapien, the amphibious man.
While Abe is busy trying put together the pieces of his forgotten past, the rest of the B.P.R.D. is in upheaval, with a relocation of headquarters from Connecticut to Colorado and the selection of a new field team commander, the mysterious, and apparently resurrected Benjamin Daimio.
Creator Mike Mignola, along with writer John Arcudi and artist Guy Davis do a solid job of keeping the interesting world of Hellboy alive in a world of continuing oddness.
