Descriptions of Hell have been carefully delineated in literary works, most notably Virgil, Dante and Milton. These works create a perception of the underworld based on descriptions found in and influenced by religious texts. The story of Hellboy has the potential to add to these visions, thereby granting the character an opportunity to expand the literary exploration and description of the underworld and demonstrating the influence of sequential art. Exploration and confrontation with Hell as an entity allow Hellboy to explore the various world interpretations of Hell, and show how an understanding of place goes beyond a particular culture. Hellboy provides a mean through which the readers are able to encounter a number of beliefs and world views, accentuating their world relevance and showing how all these different views are actually integrated.
