Abstract
This article explores possible implications of the Hellboy comic book series for constructions of individual and national identity in the American context, accounting for the factors of globalization and 9/11 as well as precedents in the comics medium. It also considers Hellboy as a self-reflection on the history and nature of the comics medium itself.
