The upcoming year is going to be big for B.P.R.D. Dark Horse recently announced their renumbering initiative for the popular Hellboy spinoff, and longtime Hellboy and B.P.R.D. editor and newly anointed Dark Horse editor-in-chief Scott Allie has said that recent events in the series are leading toward what he simply but ominously described as "The End."

To give fans a glimpse of what's to come, the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with preview art for five upcoming B.P.R.D. story arcs. We'll be debuting one a day, all week, starting today with a look at B.P.R.D.: Vampire #1, by Mike Mignola, Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.

Starting next March, B.P.R.D.: Vampire #1 is a five issue miniseries that picks up after the events of B.P.R.D.: 1948.

From the publisher:



Following the horrific events of B.P.R.D. 1948, we follow one doomed agent's quest for revenge against a clan of vampires and their gorgon-eyed queen.

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola teams up with Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon (Casanova) for a new chapter in the hidden history of the B.P.R.D.!


Check out three pages of interior art from issue #1, plus the covers for issues 1 and 2, below. B.P.R.D.: Vampire #1 is on sale 3/27/2013.
