The Abe Sapien series made its debut with Drums of the Dead in March 1998. This first story, along with the second Abe Sapien story, Abe Sapien versus Science, was collected in the first B.P.R.D. trade paperback, Hollow Earth & Other Stories.
From The Drowning onwards, Abe Sapien titles were released in their own trade paperback line. Stories were released sporadically with various artists until it became an ongoing series.
Beginning with Dark and Terrible in 2013, Abe Sapien became an ongoing series set parallel to the events of B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth. As an ongoing series Abe Sapien will be released on a monthly basis with the occasional break. The art for the ongoing story will be handled by the twins Sebastián and Max Fiumara, alternating on arcs.

Types of StoriesEdit
The first two trades feature flashback stories set in the 1980s. Future stories will be set parallel to the ongoing storyline of B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth.
Although Abe Sapien has been released as a series of miniseries and one-shots, in addition to numbers within a given miniseries, it also has an ongoing numbering system on the inside cover for the series overall. The first Abe Sapien story, Drums of the Dead, was unnumbered.
Beginning with Dark and Terrible, Abe Sapien became an ongoing series. In addition to the internal ongoing numbering, it now bears an ongoing numbering on the cover as as part of this shift.
