1947 was first published as a five-issue miniseries from July to November 2009. It was the debut of artists Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon in the Hellboy Universe.


Part OneEdit

In 1946, the Nazi Occult Bureau's Project Vampir Sturm threatened to destroy the fragile peace following the end of the Second World War. A year later, the B.P.R.D. learns that there are creatures far older—and far more dangerous—than the Nazis' creations, as a lone vampire nobleman ruthlessly hunts the survivors of the Third Reich.

Part TwoEdit

As the rest of the team hunts for their missing man, a lone agent follows his mysterious benefactor further into the dark recesses of her world.

Part ThreeEdit

The newest B.P.R.D. members are thrust into the jaws of a group of unsavory vampires as they search for a missing comrade in the bowels of a dilapidated old chateau.

Part FourEdit

The Bureau’s search for a vengeful vampire reaches its climax! In a strange Austrian village a terrifying party took place hundreds of years ago, and the last of the partygoers remain. Meanwhile, back in America, the young Hellboy dreams of adventure.

Part FiveEdit

With lots of casualties on both sides, the battle with the vampires is over. Now Broom has to enlist an old friend in a bizarre exorcism to save the soul of one of the soldiers. But the exorcist himself isn't happy about the little demon Broom has adopted and has a lesson to teach Broom about battling the forces of darkness.
