Sorry sorry, I was all set to respond to your post and then I had to leave...
Anyway, yeah read Paradise Lost if you like epics. I've only ever read books 1, 4 and 9. Those were studied in terms of the biblical epic, and then I read book 1 in terms of the liberal capitalism. It's nowhere near a fun read or anything though.
I just ordered the last four BPRD trades. Plague of Frogs was a lot of fun. The art is great, and I was skeptical about it (not a huge Guy Davis fan) but it was good. The fourth volume is really cool, especially if you like Johann.
I hope all this leads up to a Hellboy & the BPRD mini or something. I'd like to see Hellboy and Abe kick it one last time.
