Drawing heavily folklore, B-movies, ghost stories, monsters and pulp tales this is series about a paranormal investigator from Hell! Hellboy has proved to be a both popular and critical success with its abstract artwork and H. P. Lovecraft-style horror!
Created by writer-artist Mike Mignola, Hellboy was brought to Earth as an infant by Nazi occultists but discovered by the Allied Forces; amongst them, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm. Post WWII the Professor forms the United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and as an adult Hellboy becomes their primary agent fighting Nazis, demons and anything that goes bump in the night!
With a highly distinctive graphic style and cult story-lines Mignola has heavily influenced a new generation of comics artists!
