    I’m a big fan of the omnibus editions Dark Horse does for the Hellboy Universe titles. They are quite simply the best way to read the series. Each collects three of the original trade paperbacks with an expanded sketchbook section (and the trade sketchbook sections were already pretty huge), plus they’re usually paired with some kind of afterword or foreword from the authors. Despite being the deluxe way to read the comic, it’s also the cheapest, so it’s a great way for new readers to pick up a series.

    And with “B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth” wrapped in 2016, the series is now coming out in a five-volume hardcover collection. Volume 1 was released late last year, Volume 2 comes out mid April, and thanks to the folks at Dark Horse, we have a look at Laurence Campbell’s covers for Volume 3, coming out later this year, and Volume 4, coming out early 2019.

    The B.P.R.D. fight to protect the world from the rise of the monstrous Ogdru Hem, as teams hit a blizzard-torn Russia and the ruins of both Chicago and New York City. Meanwhile, Liz Sherman fights a deranged doctor in Utah, and the young psychic Fenix goes head to head with a monster-worshipping cult.

    This deluxe hardcover edition collects B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth volumes 7–9 plus an expanded sketchbook section.

    The B.P.R.D. continues to lead the defense against the apocalyptic Ogdru Hem from Japan to America, as the team splits up and Kate is possessed. Howards and a team of agents find themselves attempting to liberate a small town that holds secrets from Howards’ hyperborean past.

    Elsewhere, B.P.R.D. field agent Ashley Strode attempts to purge a demon from a 100-year-old exorcist, utilizing a deadly rite that sends both of them into a spiritual hell and setting her on a path to battling a demon who is kidnapping and eating children.

    This hardcover edition collects B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth volumes 10–11, and 14 plus bonus material.
