Abe Sapien is a line of comic books about the character Abe Sapien on his solo adventures. It is a spin-off of the Hellboy series.

Publication HistoryEdit

see also List of Abe Sapien stories

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.

Dark and Terrible cycleEdit

see also List of Abe Sapien Dark and Terrible stories

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. The ongoing series Abe Sapien is released on a monthly basis, written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie with art by twin artists Max and Sebastián Fiumara. The artists alternate on arcs.

To ease their schedule, the series will occasionally skip a month or do a flashback story handled by guest artists such as Michael Avon Oeming, Juan Ferreyra, and Kevin Nowlan. While these flashbacks are a part of the ongoing numbering, they are not a part of the Dark and Terrible story cycle.

NumberingEdit

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.
