Comic Book Review: Hellboy and the BPRD 1953 #1 - Dark Horse Comics (2016)

"Beyond the Fences"

Written by Mike Mignola & Chris Roberson
Art by Paolo Rivera

It's 1953 and Hellboy, along with the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense(BPRD) are sent to check on mysterious disappearances of animals, children and most recently an adult.  

I like seeing Hellboy ina "back in the day" type of book.  1953  is the year and times were a bit different.  Bad stuff still happened back then, so that's when the BPRD are brought in to check things out.  This comic book is written well, and while the reader has an inkling as to who is behind everything, you still don't know to what extent.  It's also entertaining to see how the group is figuring out the mystery behind the disappearances.

The art looks great and has much of the classic Hellboy look.  I've always been a fan of how Hellboy has looked in the comics and Paolo Rivera is an excellent choice for artist.  

I received this comic book in the Comic Block subscription box.  It's a great service that delivers number ones and key issues for many different comic series' and companies.  You can read the review of the entire box here.
