Hellboy Wiki

Saturn Returns is three-issue Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. arc written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie, and drawn by Christopher Mitten. This arc is the debut of colorist Brennan Wagner. It is set in October 1975.


Part One[]

A small town in New Hampshire that has been plagued by disappearances is shaken when a local discovers a pile of corpses that date back decades, and Hellboy and B.P.R.D. Agent Kinsley arrive on the scene only to be overwhelmed by supernatural theories for the ritualistic killings.

Part Two[]

Hellboy and Agent Kinsley delve deeper into the mystery behind a cache of bodies found in the New Hampshire woods. Possible explanations include werewolves, vampires, and demons… but the truth may be even stranger! Meanwhile, a runaway Liz Sherman finds that life on the street comes at a steep cost!

Part Three[]

Theories and threads are coming up cold, but the bodies are still piling up in the terrified New Hampshire town. How many more will die before the creature is contained? Agent Kinsley and the local authorities must race to stop the bloodthirsty body-snatcher without Hellboy, who has been urgently pulled in another direction.


All covers by Christopher Mitten.
