Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. is a line of comic books following Hellboy's career at the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.

Publication HistoryEdit

Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. was conceived as a series of miniseries. The first miniseries is set in 1952 and deals with Hellboy's first mission for the Bureau. For the moment, the plan is for there to be a trade for each year, sometimes containing a single story, others containing several, but the trade will bear the title of the year in which the stories are set.

Archie and Stegner are set to be major characters in the series alongside Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm, and there will be other recurring characters created by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi.
