    For BPRD Omnis there’s actually

    4 BPRD: Plague of Frogs
    1 BPRD: 1946-1948
    5 BPRD: Hell on Earth. (Not sure if the last one is out yet or just soon

    there’s a number of side series too depending on what other characters you’re interested in. Lobster Johnson and Witchfinder being a couple of the biggest.

    This may help as well

    Would I be able to jump into "Abe Sapien: The Drowning & Other Stories" without reading any of the B.P.R.D. series?

    I have been previewing the B.P.R.D series, and I know this is probably an unpopular opinion, but the art is a real turn off.

    You should be able to read everything in the Drowning Omni except the final story without any issue.

    Also not sure what part of BPRD you were previewing, but the first few stories before Guy Davis gets involved have a number of different artists, some better than others. One Guy Davis hits, it’s pretty much non stop perfection from there on out

    Thank you! It was Davis' art. I'm conflicted because I actually really like the style, coloring, & overall uniqueness. Strange as it sounds, his depiction of human faces is whats bothering me.

    Honestly, if they were still all available in hardcover, I would have most likely picked them up, and after a few issues, Davis would probably win me over.

    Davis was never my favorite, but the book is good enough to overlook the faces.

    Davis's art might grow on you. I've heard from other readers how they didn't like his art initially but grew to love it over time. I think he mentions hearing that a lot from fans in the Modern Masters interview book with him.

    For what it's worth, I love his work, he's one of my favorite artists of all time.

    So now I feel silly. I ended up purchasing the first issue of plague of frogs digitally and quickly got over my initial hesitation of Davis' art. Very tempted to pick up the paperback omni's.

    I’d highly recommend it. Both the Plague of Frogs and Hell on Eartg Omni’s are fantastic

    Based on past releases (still very new to the Hellboy world), would paperback omni's be released for Hell on Earth? I know the hardcovers are still in print, but having the first series in paperback and the second in hardcover would drive me bonkers. I would love both in hardcover, but that ship has sailed haha.

    I believe each series has a one hard cover print run followed by softcover from there on out. Hell on Earth is still completing the hardcovers, but I’d say it’s safe to assume paperback will follow once it’s complete
