B.P.R.D., Vol. 1: Hollow Earth and Other Stories by Brian McDonald, Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Derek Thompson, Matt Smith, Ryan Sook, Thomas E. Sniegoski


B.P.R.D. carries on where Hellboy sort of stops, during the years when Mignola wasn't writing any more Hellboy stories. At first the collections are just shorts, but then with successive volumes an engaging and ongoing story (which seems to be leading back into a meetup with the main Hellboy story at some point now that Mignola is writing him again) slowly starts to develop. These stories seem to be Mignola's way of testing out new artists and writers for his characters, as well as a place for him to put some of his shorter one-off ideas. There are notes preceding each story from Mignola that are pretty interesting.
