Again, for a better explanation visit:http://hellboy.wikia.com/wiki/B.P.R.D.:_Plague_of_Frogs_omnibus_editions

Picking up right where the last collection left off and with the addition of Arcudi (writer) this story explodes with changes from the bureau! Abe is off finding himself in Rhode Island with Kate, while Liz and the others find themselves in the command of a new Captain, Daimio, who takes them to anew headquarters.  Both Mike Mignola and John Arcudi do a fantastic job living up a series that needed no help doing so.

Captain Daimio finds it difficult adjusting to his new unconventional coworkers while Johann Kraus goes exploring the new space, discovering secrets better left hidden.

Theover-arching Plauge of Frogs offense wanes and ebbs under the bureaus constantbarrage. They seem all but beaten when a new villain takes the helm and leads them to one of the biggest treacheries to come to BPRD!

Thefresh arrival of John Arcudi helping Mignola shows to only be benefit theseries in ways I couldn’t imagine.  BPRD has come into its own, stepping out of the shadow of Hellboy and becoming one of the great ones to read.  As always Guy Davis continues to do a great job on the book, along with help from some other artists mentioned above.  None really stick out to me personally, but they do a fine job.

Rating:  4.5/5 stars
