4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

With this series we jump back in time to Hellboy’s early cases working with the B.P.R.D. These cases take place between 1952 and 1954 and are all little mini stories with Hellboy and the first group of agents he worked with.

This was a great collection. I really enjoyed seeing a young and inexperienced Hellboy trying to take down monsters. Hellboy definitely is more carefree and wild in these because he hasn’t really lost a lot of people or become jaded yet. Also I like that we finally get to see more of his and the Professor’s relationship.

Overall, this was a great collection of Hellboy stories. I really like this format by years because you can really see the progression in his experience and demeanor as the years progress.
