Publication HistoryEdit

Dark and Terrible is a 3 issue arc published in April 2013 with art by Sebastián Fiumara.

Dark and Terrible was originally the name of a stalled Hellboy and Abe Sapein story Mike Mignola was working on in 1996. Some elements of that story ended up becoming part of Plague of Frogs. It is unlikely this story has anything to do with this new version, as Abe Sapien's backstory has changed significantly since then.


Part OneEdit

On the run from the B.P.R.D., a mutated Abe Sapien traverses a devastated America, with monster corpses scattered around and cities in ruin.

Part TwoEdit

Abe Sapien battles his way through terrible Ogdru Hem and human monsters as the world comes crashing down around him, on his quest to reveal his own role in the end of the world.

Part ThreeEdit

A town cut off from the world by rampaging monsters must decide if the strange fishman in their midst signals salvation, or the end of days.
