"Hi, my name's Hellboy" is a one page promotional strip that advertised Hellboy and his upcoming stories.

Publication HistoryEdit

This page was originally published in October 1994, in "Celebrate Diversity." The page was reprinted in The Art of Hellboy in March 2003.


The one page story introduces Hellboy, and tells something of his origin, as revealed in Seed of Destruction. The page also gives a very brief introduction of Abe Sapien. The bottom of the page is devoted to promoting the next Hellboy mini-series, Wake the Devil, and a group of four short stories that were to appear as back-ups to the first Monkeyman & O'Brien mini-series.

"Hi, my name's Hellboy" advertised Wake the Devil as a four issue series, though it would end up as five issues. The back-ups in Monkeyman & O'Brien never happened but three of the stories were eventually printed elsewhere; "Heads," "The Nature of the Beast" and "The Baba Yaga." It is possible that the fourth story, about "a possessed torture device" was in some way folded into Wake the Devil.
