    A terrific self-contained tale that will please long time fans and serve as an excellent introduction to new readers. With the conclusion, I found myself wanting more of Hellboy and Farrier's outings. And I want to see Martinbrough illustrate them. I can only hope that there are many more adventures to tell featuring this pair. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955 " Secret Nature is an excellent one-shot tale giving Woody and Red a simple, yet exciting case to investigate. During this the creative team give us some wonderful character development, using the limited page count to its full potential. So if you're looking to try Hellboy for the first time, or simply give the Right Hand of Doom another go, then this is the perfect time to do so, with there being no need to further invest if it turns out not to be for you.

    "Secret Nature" is a great start to "1955" while working perfectly as a stand alone story. It serves as a significantly stronger introduction to Woodrow than his first appearance in "Black Sun." Read Full Review

    There is a story of a demon here" but for me it was more about the monster that lurks within some of our own species. Read Full Review

    In any case even with that, those like me who are casual fans can enjoy the one-shot and appreciate what's on the page. A fun read that has me wanting more one-shots like it. Read Full Review
