Synopsis:
Hellboy's departure from the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense has left the other supernatural members questioning their futures. But when a vision appears to Abe Sapien warning of danger for the missing Liz Sherman, he takes a very irregular group of agents on a mission that could lead them right through the center of the earth.

Abe Sapien, Roger the Homunculus, and Johann Kraus carry Liz Sherman's body into the center of the earth to find her stolen fire. Guided by the directions of a dead gnome, the BPRD is about to unearth a buried city, and learn what's in store for the world above.

The missing member of the B.P.R.D. is finally reunited with her body, but the team still has to find a way to dismantle the monstrous dwarves' digging machines, which tear at the center of the earth, and the giant battery which runs them, fueled on human fire power.

Synopsis:
Children have been disappearing from their bedrooms under circumstances so mysterious that local police call in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The kids find cold comfort from fishman Abe Sapien and the disembodied ghost of Johann Kraus -- but when the innocent fantasy world of monsters and magic they used to enjoy becomes engulfed in terror and nightmares, the bizarre strangers who show up to help don't seem quite so scary after all.

Synopsis:
A giant fungus escapes from its containment in a maximum-security laboratory, pitting the B.P.R.D. against the frog-men they faced ten years ago in the original Hellboy series, Seed of Destruction.

The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense traces the disappearance of a giant fungus to a deserted town. Separated from the group when their helicopter crashes, Roger the Homunculus, enthralled by a mysterious child, winds up hanging from the neck in an abandoned building. Meanwhile, the rest of the B.P.R.D. team lies unconscious at the crash site, and Abe Sapien dreams of underwater terrors.

While Roger hangs lifeless, the other members of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense recover from their helicopter crash only to see Johann torn to shreds by the town’s only inhabitants—a cult of frog men led by a shrouded freak, who erupts in a fleshy explosion. The roof comes down on a chained Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman, and only Kate Corrigan, the only normal human in the crew, remains free, hopelessly trying to raise help on the crashed copter’s radio. It’s the return of the frog men from Seed of Destruction, the most disastrous B.P.R.D. mission since Wake the Devil.

Liz Sherman is set upon by a cemetery full of fungus-driven zombies, and Abe Sapien uncovers the connection between this new generation of monsters and the B.P.R.D.’s old enemy Rasputin. But as the frogmen begin their rituals to raise the old gods, one of the disciples makes good on the threat Rasputin leveled against Abe years ago in Hellboy: Wake the Devil.

Mike Mignola and Guy Davis wrap up the first arc of the new Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense series with a bizarre and completely unique journey to the bottom of the sea, to find ancient temples and hidden origins. The plague of frogs has begun, and the world will never be the same!
