Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1956 is a five-issue miniseries illustrated by multiple artists.

Publication HistoryEdit

1956 was officially announced for San Diego Comic-Con 2018.


Part OneEdit

Pressure is mounting within the bureau to uncover the Soviets’ secret plans, but a suspicious cover-up leads one agent off the radar in search of answers. Meanwhile, demonic Soviet occult leader Varvara pushes her team to follow her own whims, and Hellboy is sent on the mission that would lead to his infamous misadventures in Mexico. But even more clandestine plots are at work—both inside the B.P.R.D. and out. Three different storylines are interwoven in this espionage saga.

Part TwoEdit

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 Varvara’s pet projects stir up discontent among her team of occult scientists.
