After the overwhelming praise from fans and critics alike for B.P.R.D.: 1946, Mike Mignola and cowriter Joshua Dysart return to the Hellboy universe for , a five-issue miniseries continuing the early exploits of the fledgling Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense and its founder, Trevor Bruttenhom—occult investigator and guardian of the infant Hellboy. Despite the fact that the Hellboy/B.P.R.D. franchise has ballooned over the years and creator Mike Mignola rarely has the time to illustrate any of these stories, the various mini-series and one-shots over the years have managed to achieve a surprisingly consistent visual style. 1947 is no exception. With art by Eisner award winners Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon, it is a visual treat. Mike Mignola himself talks about Bá and Moon: "Their work is amazing, and we’re giving them an epic gothic tale, a moody and shadowy nightmare unlike anything they’ve done, and darker, scarier, and more mysterious than anything we’ve done in such a long format." And about 1947: "In the 1946 series, the B.P.R.D. was just two guys and one of them died. In 1947 we see the humble beginnings of the Bureau we know and love today."
