While Pinhead and the Hellraiser films haven’t exactly been hitting the horror home run that they should over the last few years, it seems that the only place you can find a good Cenobite-laden tale is in print.
And that’s just fine with us because when you see what Clive Barker and BOOM! Studios have in store for fans, you’re going to find yourself coming way before anyone even opens your box.
In case you haven’t been in the know, BOOM! Studios is launching a new ongoing Hellraiser comic book series written by Clive Barker that will be released in comic stores everywhere on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011. This is only the third time that Clive has “touched” the characters — the first with his novella The Hellbound Heart and the second being the first Hellraiser film. With the Hellraiser ongoing comic series, Clive Barker returns to his signature creation.
Some quick details for you …
Excited? Yeah, you should be. This is the first time any publisher has ever done this, much less with one of the biggest names in literature and one of the biggest franchise characters in fiction.
