Read full description of the books:
This volume is a collection of really good short stories about BPRD fighting the frog monsters, but it is a victim of confusing ordering. These short stories are actually meant to be read together with B.P.R.D., Vol. 5: The Black Flame, and it makes absolutely no sense if you read it between volumes 11 and 14 (13 is a separate story, too!). To remedy that, I highly recommend reading BPRD in these fantastic omnibus editions: B.P.R.D.: Plague of Frogs 2. The stories there are reshuffled in the correct order when necessary, and they are really affordable if you get the paperbacks. And they collect the entire thing in just 4 volumes instead of 12!
Anyway, due to its unfortunate ordering in single volumes, I can see why many of my friends here rated this collection lower than it probably should be. But with proper context, these stories really expand upon the story in The Black Flame, and get much more weight — for example, we see why Abe is the way he is in volume 5, and we get some useful background info on other characters. Oh, and Revival is just a damn cool short story all on its own. Overall, I really liked it, and I think it's a worthy and necessary addition to the series.

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.
