Read full description of the books:
B.P.R.D. is the spinoff series from Hellboy. (BPRD stands for Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.)
Ordinarily, spinoffs aren't my thing. They tend to happen when a franchise of some sort is fabulously successful, and people start thinking things like, "Wouldn't it be nice if we cashed *two* huge checks every week instead of just one?"
But still, they're successful for a reason. When I got addicted to Buffy, eventually there came a point where there was no more Buffy to watch. (This was back in 2004 or so, when they were releasing the seasons on DVD about six months apart.)
So I wanted Buffy, but I couldn't get Buffy. So I watched Angel instead.
This is like what a heroin addict will do. When you can't get heroin, you'll grudgingly have some methadone instead, just to keep the shakes down.
(Don't think this is me saying I don't like BPRD. I do. I'm just making an extended comparison here.)
But sometimes a spinoff series flourishes in its own right. That happened with Angel, starting around season 3, it really dug in, and I think that season 5 of Angel was probably the best of season of *both* shows.
That's what also happens here. Hellboy is about.... well... Hellboy. He's the star of the show.
But over the course of the series, other interesting subplots and secondary characters arise. This series gives them room to breathe and grow. And they do.
Hellboy, ultimately, is about one character's journey of self-discovery. That means the action tends to be smaller and more focused on the protagonist.
BPRD is different in that it's more plot focused, and the action is much grander. There's apocolypse style weird shittery going down, and the Bureau mankind's best and only hope.
As things grown increasingly grim and Lovcraftian, Hellboy's old team has to gear up and try to fix things even though Hellboy himself has gone walkabout and isn't around to help.
While I don't love it as much as I love Hellboy, the series absolutely caries its own weight. It's not as mythically ambitious as Hellboy, but that's fine, because that's not really the point of the story. B.P.R.D is like the X-Files, if Scully was a Pyrokinetic and Mulder was a ken-doll smooth 17th century homunculus.
And there, I've done it again. It's like my superpower: awful one-sentence descriptions of series that I like. Now you know why you aren't seeing my promotional blurbs all over these comics.
And I'm done,

Read information about the authorMike Mignola was born September 16, 1960 in Berkeley, California and grew up in nearby Oakland. His fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age (he doesn't remember why) and reading Dracula at age 13 introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore from which he has never recovered.
In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics, first as a (very terrible) inker and then as an artist on comics like Rocket Raccoon, Alpha Flight and The Hulk. By the late 80s he had begun to develop his signature style (thin lines, clunky shapes and lots of black) and moved onto higher profile commercial projects like Cosmic Odyssey (1988) and Gotham by Gaslight (1989) for DC Comics, and the not-so-commercial Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser (1990) for Marvel. In 1992, he drew the comic book adaptation of the film Bram Stoker's Dracula for Topps Comics.
In 1993, Mike moved to Dark Horse comics and created Hellboy, a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. While the first story line (Seed of Destruction, 1994) was co-written by John Byrne, Mike has continued writing the series himself. There are, at this moment, 13 Hellboy graphic novel collections (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien and Witchfinder), three anthologies of prose stories, several novels, two animated films and two live-action films staring Ron Perlman. Hellboy has earned numerous comic industry awards and is published in a great many countries.
Mike also created the award-winning comic book The Amazing Screw-on Head and has co-written two novels (Baltimore, or, the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City) with best-selling author Christopher Golden.
Mike worked (very briefly) with Francis Ford Coppola on his film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer on the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) and was visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). He lives somewhere in Southern California with his wife, daughter, a lot of books and a cat.
