I was a little disappointed with this volume and I'm starting to worry that this series is on the decline. 1955 collects three stories. The first, Secret Nature, and the third, Burning Season, seemed typical in tone to most Hellboy comics. More like one-shots that don't really provide a lot to the storyline but are entertaining enough. The second, Occult Intelligence, is where this volume lacks. It was a bit of a slog to get through. I didn't like B.P.R.D. 1948 and this issue follows some of its plot points with a bit of government conspiracy sprinkled throughout. It reminded me of Witchfinder, a little too wordy with overly explained plot points and no end in sight. I can't say I really care about this story arc, which is unfortunate since it's going to be a continuous storyline for this series.
