Review: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: 1953 – Beyond the Fences #2


Suburbia is torn apart when Hellboy faces off against a bizarre creature, while the BPRD tries to uncover who created such a monster—and why.

The hunt for the missing people continues, as they find a clue of sorts. Except the clue is a strange, looking dog like creature.  Of course it gets away, only to change as night turns to day. They find it and it runs off to the school just as it releases. I doubt that will end well, or without any deaths on the creature’s parts as the issues continue.

The artwork features the well known art style of Mignola, with an influence of the penciller Paolo Rivera. You can tell how quickly time seems to pass, as the subtle light changes between the action sequences. Even the cover has a subtle nod, to a well known children’s toy the invisible dog leash.
