HellBound was a Black Comedy by Maniac_wolfman, currently stalled in its last chapter, and is on what looks to be a permanent Series Hiatus. The plot centers around Guy, an incredibly unlucky college kid who loses his soul within minutes of starting a new job, as he tries to retrieve an ancient sacred relic in the hopes of getting his soul back. Along the way, he is accompanied by the violent demon Mel, her airheaded sister Kyota, and an idiotic thief named Baxter. Honestly, he probably gets more help from the sheer incompetence of the forces of good that are arrayed against them.A retrieved archive has been put online here: http://hellboundarchive.thecomicseries.com/comics/1/

- Orphaned Series: As of Feb 1 2008, the main domain is offline, so it's pretty safe to say this comic is gone. It came back up for a while, but that site now has no images available on the pages.
