First appearing inÂ Dark HorseÂ comics beginning in 1993, Hellboy is a demon summoned from Hell by the Nazi occultists near the end of World War II. Raised byÂ Professor Trevor Bruttenholm of Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy went on to be billed as âThe Worldâs greatest occult detective.â The adventures of the character have been chronicled in countless comics, including his time with the Bureau, his early years as a young boy, and even the time he spent in hell after dying on Earth. The main Hellboy title has also served as a launching pad for other characters and stories, including Abe Sapien, Lobster Johnson, BPRD, Sledgehammer 44 and others.
