Hellboy Reading Order, Entire “Mignolaverse”

The effort to compile a proper “reading order” for what is being called the Mignola-verse, which is made up of Hellboy and related characters, is difficult at best since they do not sync together clearly, though there is still a real continuity.  The main books here are various Hellboy books, B.P.R.D. books, Abe Sapien, Witchfinder, and Lobster Johnson, amongst others.  Here is a stab at the reading orders, first by different title and then by fictional chronology.

 

Hellboy/BPRD Reading Order

This post contains a (spoiler-free) intro to the “Mignolaverse” and one possible reading order for all series involved. Don’t dig around for more info regarding these series online until you’ve read them all—outside of this post, you will definitely find significant spoilers regarding recent events if you look these comics up. Even the Wikipedia articles aren’t safe.

Ask me if you have any questions about anything, I’ll give you whatever info you need without spoilers! Feel free to click on some of the images below if you are interested in picking up any of these trade paperback collections.

Plot Synopsis:

Hellboy was summoned to earth to bring about its destruction at the end of WWII, but was instead taken in by a scholar and a bunch of soldiers and raised to become a pretty upstanding guy. He works for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense with a few other misfits, including an amphibious man, a pyrokinetic, and a homunculus. They protect the world from the supernatural things that want to destroy it.

The Hellboy comics are part of a universe of comics that has been developed by Mignola and a small team of writers and artists for almost 20 years now. The universe has grown to include several other titles, including two ongoing series, BPRD and Abe Sapien, and a number of limited series. Each title is as important as the others, and they all draw from each other. You don’t need to read any of the other series to understand Hellboy and BPRD, but reading them all is a lot of fun!

Main series:

Hellboy – Starts off as a sort of hero-bashing-Nazis-and-fighting-Lovecraftian-horror story, but over time breaks out of that mold to explore all sorts of paranormal and mythological stories. Though Hellboy doesn’t lose its roots as a “big guy hitting bigger guy” comic, it gets spookier and more introspective as the series goes on and the apocalypse draws nearer… at least, according to just about everybody Hellboy talks to (or punches).


BPRD – The Hellboy comics split up into two different titles after the fifth trade, Conqueror Worm. After that, Hellboy goes off on his own while the BPRD deals with their own problems without him in BPRD. After the split, Hellboy is a more thoughtful, solo adventure and BPRD is a character-driven team book featuring lots of action and interesting personalities and stories. There have been two major story arcs to BPRD–Plague of Frogs (complete) and Hell on Earth (ongoing).


Abe Sapien – the first few arcs are flashback stories about about his earlier missions, but the new ongoing series that started in April 2013 is set in the present and runs parallel to present-day BPRD.

Other series in this universe:

Witchfinder – the adventures of a Victorian-era witch hunter.


Lobster Johnson – the lost stories of a 1930s masked vigilante fighting paranormal crime in NYC.


Sledgehammer ‘44 – a new series about a man in a metal suit.

There are many different ways to read these comics. It’s a matter of preference which order you pick, but  it’s probably intimidating to try to figure out a good order to read these comics in. In this post I present the simplest  possible reading order I could come up with for the series.

Both Hellboy and BPRD have a single main plotline that is set in the ‘present’ of the comics, though there are also a lot of side stories that take place in the past. Flashback stories and those set in the present timeline are all interconnected. Don’t skip anything just because it’s set in the past!

    Just thought I’d point out Abe Sapien #8, #15, and #23 are flashback stories, not ongoing. They’ll be collected with a few other (yet to come) Abe Sapien flashbacks in a trade paperback some day. “The Land of the Dead” is set in 1983, “Lost Lives” is set in 2005, and “The Ogopogo” (which comes out later this month) is set in 1992.
