With Liz Sherman back in fiery action, two B.P.R.D. teams make their way through the monster-filled streets of the Manhattan wasteland in order to reach the Black Flame's fortress and take down his army.
One of the great mysteries of the Hellboy world is revealed as Abe
uncovers his connections to the monsters threatening to end the
world. When monsters began to tear down civilization, suspicion fell
on Abe Sapien, who resembled the frogmen plaguing mankind. The two
volumes of Dark and Terrible tell the complete story of Abe's quest
to prove his innocence as he went AWOL from the Bureau of Paranormal
Research and Defense. At first he ran from the truth, but as this
volume picks up he's ready to face facts about his origins and his
purpose in the world--revealed in classically oblique Mignola style--
all while being pursued by a mad necromancer who feels betrayed by
the Devil and is eager to use Abe to gain new power amongst the
creatures that have created a Hell on Earth.
