Abe Sapien Arrives in His Own Miniseries

Press Release

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola teams up with Eisner-nominated artist Jason Shawn Alexander (Damn Nation, The Secret, The Escapists) for a five-part miniseries featuring Abe Sapien, the second most popular character from Mignola’s Hellboy books, on his first solo assignment. Abe Sapien: The Drowning promises to be chock-full of adventure and suspense in the tradition of the most revered Hellboy stories.

A century ago, paranormal investigator Edward Grey fought and destroyed a powerful warlock off the island of Saint Sebastian. In the early 1980s, the B.P.R.D.’s special agent Abe Sapien was sent to retrieve the warlock’s remains. This simple mission turns to disaster and Abe Sapien finds himself alone against supernatural forces older than mankind.

“I realized recently that while we are learning a lot now in B.P.R.D. about Abe’s origin and the human being he used to be, we know almost nothing about what he was doing in his early years as a B.P.R.D. agent. I thought it would be nice to see his first case where he really has to work on his own, without being in Hellboy’s shadow,” says Mignola, “And I wanted to work with Jason Alexander for years and he’s the perfect artist for the weird atmosphere I needed for this story.”

Abe Sapien: The Drowning will be flooding retail establishments in January 2008, with a price tag of $2.99.
