Despite the fact that Hellboy’s story came to an end last year with Hellboy in Hell #10, the brilliantly quiet finale by Mike Mignola, there’s still so much unexplored territory for the character. In fact, there’s a whole gap of stories between Hellboy’s arrival during World War II and the first arc, Seed of Destruction, which takes place in the 90s.
For the past few years, Mignola and a rotating stable of talented artists have been working on a series of books that take place during Hellboy’s early days with the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. Starting with the year 1952, the Hellboy and the BPRD series shows a greener Hellboy fighting the good fight against all manner of creatures and supernatural threats.
The latest is 1955 and we have an exclusive preview of the first one-shot, “Secret Nature,” below!
