The story takes place early in the Lobster's career as a crime fighter in the 1930s.
When a tribe of phantom Indians start scalping policemen, Hellboy's crime-fighting hero Lobster Johnson and his allies arrive to take on these foes and their gangster cronies!
With a city swamped in dead gangsters with claws branded into their foreheads, mob boss Arnie Wald seeks the assistance of a deadly mystic and her strange partner to take down the vigilante known as Lobster Johnson.
A fiery menace is turning the city into an inferno, and only Lobster Johnson and his league of crime fighters can put an end to these paranormal horrors.
As dead gangsters bloody the floor of his secret hideout, crime fighter Lobster Johnson goes head to head with a powerful German undead—The Black Flame.
Lobster Johnson blasts his way through an army of mad sewer cannibals in order to get to the greedy mob boss Arnie Wald.
