    I'm a Hellboy freak, so I'm biased, but I found this to be a great and fun read. Read Full Review

    Plus Stenbeck and Mignola are a great team. I think I said that already. But it bears repeating. I hope to see another story with them working together very soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith Nov 25, 2015

    The first story in this issue is definitely the main course, while the second feels a little bit like an afterthought. As a whole it works though, giving us a wide range of the kinds of cases that Hellboy had to solve in his younger days. Not every case can be a gun slinging skull-bashing adventure. That's what has always made Hellboy such a great comic, it's well-roundedness and pacing. Mignola knows just when to hit the brakes, slow down, and remind us that Hellboy isn't just about beating up monsters, but it's a journey of discovery, purpose, and self-worth, and Hellboy has always been the perfect demon to help us feel more human.

    So, recap: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1953 (awesome rhyme, by the way) is a book, and series that you can easily pick up off the shelf on a whim and be satisfied with the story inside. It has fantastic writing, fantastic art and color skills for days. Its a book that should be on all the Best of lists, and certainly a book that should be read first off the pile every week its out. After reading this, youll be so satisfied that youll actually want to go back for seconds, and thirds and eventually youll be just as addicted as the rest of us. Maybe there should be a disclaimer on these books" Read Full Review
