Review: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1956 #2

Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1956 #2

Professor Bruttenholm sends two agents in opposite directions on off-the-books missions, while the B.P.R.D. loses sight of Hellboy as he wanders through Mexico, and Varvaras pet projects stir up discontent among her team of occult scientists.

Two issues in and Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1956 is interesting in how not punching monsters the series is. Professor Bruttenholm has his suspicions that something is going on with those around him and a corruption exists and Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1956 #2 has him diving deeper into that mystery and attempting to find allies. The issue feels more about pencil pushing and spying than the traditional Hellboy story. And that’s ok!

Written by Chris Roberson and Mike Mignola, the series has been fascinating in how mundane it is compared to some of the crazy we’ve seen before. The two issues feel more like a bridge to something and setting up what’s coming next than anything else. And that’s ok because we need those types of stories. It’s just unexpected in a miniseries as these “year” ones have been.

The art by Yishan Li, Mike Norton, and Michael Avon Oeming with color by Dave Stewart is solid as expected. There’s never been a Hellboy series where the art has lacked and there’s a certain style about this one that feels a bit more appropriate for it’s more spy-like plot. This isn’t about crazy monsters, it’s about jockeying for information.

Much like the first issue, the second feels more like the set-up for something big coming but also like the first there’s not much action here. Its focus is interesting as it’s a chapter in the meta story that’s being built. New readers might feel a bit bored by this entry, so far, but for those engaged in the bigger picture, this is as solid an entry as everything else helping build the amazing tapestry that is the Hellboy world.
