Clive Barker Returns To ‘Hellraiser’ With New Comic Book Series
  |  @   |  

Clive Barker is returning to his cult favorite Hellraiser franchise, but this time, it’s in comic book form with Hellraiser #1, a new comics series from BOOM! Studios.

The 40-page full-color Hellraiser #1 will be written by Barker and Christopher Monfette with art by Leonardo Manco, and will sell for $3.99. Cover art is by Tim Bradstreet and Nick Percival, while the variant cover will be drawn and signed by Clive Barker.

This first issue will also contain a 10-page backup story written by the co-writer and co-director of The Matrix trilogy, Larry Wachowski.

The series will “tell a new chapter in the series’ official continuity””a trajectory that will forever change the Cenobites… and Pinhead.”

See above for the covers for Hellraiser #1 — Cover A on the left; Cover B variant on the right.

What makes this series really special is that although the Hellraiser franchise has numerous movie sequels and comic book offshoots, Barker himself has only ever written the original short short The Hellbound Heart and its film adaptation 1987’s Hellraiser, which he also directed.

No word yet on when the issue will go on sale, but the Diamond Code is JAN111031.
