At the same time, Tyler Crook was announced as the new ongoing artist, though not quite in the same capacity that Davis had been. During Davis's run as the ongoing artist, he was solely responsible for the ongoing stories, however has been sharing these duties with other semi-regular artists. Since then James Harren and Laurence Campbell have joined the become B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth team as ongoing artists alongside Crook.
As of The Devil's Wings Laurence Campbell has been made the cover artist for B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth and will be to the end. Both Tyler Crook and James Harren have since moved on to their own creator-owned series, Harrow County and Rumble, respectively.
Other artists to have worked on the series include Jason Latour (The Pickens County Horror), Max Fiumara (The Transformation of J.H. O'Donnell), Peter Snejbjerg (A Cold Day in Hell and Nowhere, Nothing, Never), Joe Querio (The Broken Equation), and Julián Totino Tedesco (Modern Prometheus).
Side Stories and the Switch to Ongoing SeriesEdit
In 2012 B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth experimented with releasing multiple titles in a single month, always with one issue focused on the ongoing plotline with the occasional additional issue focusing on side stories. These stories were not written with John Arcudi and featured contributions from various artists. Scott Allie has said that these stories are not stand-alone stories, that they will contribute in big ways to the overall plot of Hell on Earth, but their contribution won't be as immediately apparent.
From Halloween 2012, B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth became an ongoing series with The Return of the Master #3 becoming #100. This change means the series will come out on a regular monthly schedule with no more side stories coming out in the same month, as had become the norm in the first half of 2012.
Hell on Earth is collected in its own line of trade paperbacks to make it distinct from the previous cycle and flashback stories. Hell on Earth ran for a total of 15 trades.
The entire Hell on Earth cycle will be collected in omnibus editions beginning December 2017. These feature expanded sketchbooks.
