Lots of new Hellboy & BPRD comics

I got three new reprints this week:

Hellboy: Strange Places by Mike Mignola
BPRD: Plague of Frogs by Mike Mignola, Guy Davis, Dave Stewart & Clem Robbins
BPRD: The Dead by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Guy Davis & Dave Stewart

Strange Places is about what's happened to Hellboy since he quit the BPRD. It's weird stuff that explains (or maybe just hints at) what Mignola has planned for Hellboy in the rest of the series.

Both BPRD books are really about the same story: frog monsters get loose and the BPRD has to try and stop them. They also are building up the BPRD as something more than just Hellboy's sidekicks, which is all good. My initial impressions of these stories were that they were inferior to Mignola's work on Hellboy, but now I think they're just as good (although not exactly the same in style).
