    Default Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1956

    Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1956 #1

    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 led to his infamous misadventures in Mexico. But even more clandestine plots are at work--both inside the B.P.R.D. and out.

    So...question.

    IIRC, isn't the "mission that led Hellboy to Mexico" some of the Anastasia Bramsfield stuff from the novels? I will admit I have a very fault grasp over that section of canon. If I'm right, though, will they be adapting parts of those books, or working around them, or de-canonizing the novels (if they ever were formally canonical to begin with)?

    I don’t think Hellboy meets her until 79 or 80. So probably unrelated. Hellboy in Mexico has Hellboy briefly talking about what initially brought him to Mexico though. So I assume we’ll learn more about how the whole thing started, and who the agents who went down there with him were
