Clive Barker will be writing the newest installment of his most famous creation with the new Hellraiser ongoing series! Barker is joined by Christopher Monfette who will co-write the series with him and artist Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer), Hellraiser #1 will have covers by Tim Bradstreet and Nick Percival, which you can see below! Hellraiser #1 will be released the same month that Hellraiser: Masterworks is via Marvel.
The debut volume of Hellraiser: Masterworks sees a lot of cringing Pinhead tales by such creators as Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, Mike Mignola, Alex Ross & more, with cover by John Bolton! I'll be picking this up for sure!
“Beyond being a legendary creator of all things macabre, Clive Barker is truly an amazing individual and I'm proud to be able to work with him on reviving one of his most celebrated creations with HELLRAISER,” said Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “I've known Clive for years, but this is the first chance we've had to work together and I couldn't be more excited. It's been unbelievably gratifying to develop this series and witness the visceral, relentless, and shocking story that Clive has in store for a new generation of horror fans. Readers beware! Hell comes home this March!"
Clive Barker has only been attached (writing wise) to two other Hellraiser projects, can you believe this? He of course wrote The Hellbound Heart and wrote and directed Hellraiser.
Hellraiser #1 will ship as an oversized 40-page issue in March with A & B covers in a 50/50 split with art by Tim Bradstreet and Nick Percival respectively, as well as a very special 1-in-50 incentive cover with art by John Abrahamson and signed by legendary master of horror Clive Barker. Hellraiser: Masterworks Vol. 1 ships in March, featuring the works of Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, Mike Mignola, Larry Wachowski, Alex Ross, Kevin O'Neill and more with a cover by John Bolton.
