B.P.R.D.: Plague of Frogs Hardcover Collection Vol. 1
In 2001, Hellboy quit the B.P.R.D., leaving Abe Sapien to lead Liz Sherman and a bizarre roster of special agents in defending the world from occult threats, including the growing menace of the frog army, first spotted in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction.
Mike Mignola and Dark Horse present the complete Plague of Frogs saga, from Hollow Earth to King of Fear. This first book explores the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense after Hellboy's departure, cracks open the secrets of Abe Sapien's origin, and sets the war on frogs in motion.
Over 400 pages, collecting Hollow Earth, The Soul of Venice, and Plague of Frogs.

Huh, that's interesting. The old trade paperbacks are going to be phased out and replaced with these hard cover editions. Wish I could buy them, as it really does look like a nice book (plus it's hard cover!), but I can't buy the same stories twice. That's an insanity I don't want to delve into. I'll recommend it to anyone just getting into BPRD though.
