Hellboy Junior is a non-canonical, adult humor comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics, written by Bill Wray and Mike Mignola, with art provided by both in addition to a number of other artists.

Most of the stories contained within Hellboy Junior star a young Hellboy living in Hell during his formative years. These stories take place before he was summoned to earth as part of Project Ragna Rok during which he lost his memories. As such, his personality, temperament and morals do not align with those he posses following Trevor Bruttenholm raising him.

Issues[edit | edit source]

Hellboy Junior was published as a one shot that was then followed, two years later, by a two issue mini-series. Each of the three issues is made up of a number stories, some interconnected while others are standalone.
