Abe Sapien: The Drowning
ISBN: 9781595821850

The story centres on Hellboy’s sidekick, Abraham Sapien — half man and half fish.

He is sent as part of a team, to investigate an underwater wreck. They unwittingly awaken a warlock (whose minions look like little asian wizards and have interesting individual powers) who, in the process of being re-animated, absorb the lifeforce of the village. Obviously, he’s an evil that Abe Sapien has to stop.

The human-ness of Abe shows through, in his self-doubt and also eventual conquering of his fears.
