    Default The Hellboy Universe Publishing Order

    This is an old list that used to be posted on the Dark Horse forums. The list consists of the core Hellboy Universe comics with an additional section for the Hellboy Universe novels, and just for the hell of it, there's a section for the Baltimore stories as well.

    CONTENTS:

    1. Core Comics of the Hellboy Universe by Publishing Order

    2. Library Editions and Omnibuses
    This section lists which trades are in which book.


    3. Novels of the Hellboy Universe by Publishing Order
    Please note, I don't collect the novels myself. I rely on other people for this information.


    4. Stories of the Baltimore and Joe Golem Universes by Publishing Order
    This section lists the novel and the later comics of the Baltimore Universe and the Joe Golem Universe.


    5. Upcoming Issues

    Default Core Comics of the Hellboy Universe by Publishing Order: 1993–2009

    This list includes core stories that are or will be collected in the primary Hellboy Universe trade paperbacks. It will not include crossovers, guest appearances, Hellboy Junior comics or RPG comics.

    Publishing order is based on the first appearance of the first issue or part of that comic, thus The Corpse goes before The Chained Coffin as it ran as a multi-part series before it was collected with The Iron Shoes.

    The colours correlate to the spines of the trade paperbacks the stories are collected in.
    Red is Hellboy, Hellboy in Hell and Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.
    Olive is B.P.R.D. and B.P.R.D. Vampire
    Grey is B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth and B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know
    Blue is Lobster Johnson
    Green is Abe Sapien
    Brown is Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder and Frankenstein Underground
    Orange is Sledgehammer 44
    Purple is Rise of the Black Flame
    Turquoise is The Visitor: How & Why He Stayed
