Part One: GraceEdit

Abe Sapien travvels to Texas so he can find some peace after his mutation and hunting from the BPRD.

Part Two: DayanaEdit

In a strangely tranquil town on the Texas Gulf Coast, Abe has found a little peace. That peace is threatened by Abe's hunch that there's a connection between this town and a deadly threat he faced not too long ago...

Part Three: MeganEdit

A little girl taking shelter from the end of the world with a mysterious Mexican death cult turns to Abe for protection.

Part Four: ArbogastEdit

The villain takes center stage as south Texas’s necromancy problem is revealed, and Sebastián Fiumara gives Geof Darrow a run for his money.

Part Five: AbeEdit

A tranquil Texas town, the last safe place in America, erupts in supernatural violence as Abe Sapien gets a true taste of Hell on Earth, and the lonely road he’s walked since leaving the Bureau gets even lonelier.
