Fictional character biography[edit]

Hector Plasm is a benandanti who roams the earth in the hope of helping ghosts, humans, and demons alike to live in harmony with each other. The comic itself has a similar sort of formula as Hellboy by taking myths and legends from various places around the globe and putting them into a modern setting. Unlike Hellboy, however, Hector Plasm strives to be as faithful as possible to the myths presented within the text.

"Hector came about as a result of Nate Bellegarde's and my desire to show people we could do something other than what they had seen from us before... So we put together a book that contained lots of elements we enjoyed - ghost stories, international folklore, dudes cutting things with swords, classical mythology, all of that. So we threw it all together with a feel of southern Gothic folk music and sea shanties, and out came Hector." -Benito Cereno, SilverBulletComics.com interview.
