Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 306

HELLBOY AND THE B.P.R.D.: 1953 #3 PAGE 9. 2016.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

This Hellboy story takes place in 1953, which required a fair amount of research to get the look right. It's by no means completely accurate, but where I could find period appropriate reference, I used it. This illustration of a house was from an ad that I liked... and it looked like a great landing pad for Hellboy.
