Hellraiser Bestiary Issues
As we venture deeper into the Bestiary, Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS) and Paolo Villanelli take the puzzle box through a hospital in “Don’t Look,” while in the penultimate chapter of “The Hunted,” Pinhead finds some unexpected help in his fight against the poachers
The final chapter of this Hellraiser anthology arrives with perhaps its most shocking stories, as Christopher Sebela (Dead Letters) teams up with Matt Battaglia for a tale of a hoarder unlike any you’ve seen on reality TV. Also, Ben Meares and Peter Bergting (Baltimore) show us a scientist racing to crack the secrets of the puzzle box, and in the finale of "The Hunted," Pinhead comes face to face with those who want to steal his pins.
The descent into darkness continues with more all-new tales of the Cenobites! First, in “Study,” Lela Gwenn and Daniele Serra follow a anthropologist who goes from observer to subject, while in the continuing story “The Hunted,” Pinhead begins his counterattack against those trying to usurp his power.
The trip through The Cenobites’ Bestiary continues! This month, Ed Brisson (Sheltered) and Alexis Ziritt (The Package) show us how smartphones and the LeMarchand Device are connected in "Conduit," while in "Puzzled," a young man with an aptitude for solving puzzles finds refuge with the legendary device. And finally, Pinhead erupts against the forces amassed against him in part three of "The Hunted."
The journey into the Bestiary continues! In this issue, Christopher Taylor and Jason Shawn Alexander tell a tale of a blues singer who possesses a very unique guitar, while in the second part of "The Hunted," we learn just who hired the mercenaries tasked with stealing Pinhead’s pins.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the HELLRAISER mythos as only he could, building a long-form narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series—free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences. WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: HELLRAISER: BESTIARY will pick up where classic horror comics anthologies like Tales From The Crypt, Vault of Horror, and the more recent Flinch left off. And not only will some of comics’ rising stars, such as Ed Brisson (Sheltered), and Michael Moreci (CURSE), get a chance to open the puzzle box in this series, but the first issue features the comics debut of award-winning novelist Victor LaValle (The Devil in Silver, Big Machine). WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians! This first issue contains the start of a six-part serial written by Mark Miller (CLIVE BARKER’S NEXT TESTAMENT) and Ben Meares (HELLRAISER ANNUAL 2013), and drawn by Carlos Magno (DEATHMATCH), where a group of mercenaries are hired to steal Pinhead’s pins. Also, superstar author Victor LaValle teams with artist Colin Lorimer (CURSE) to tell a story set on the outskirts of New York City, as a close-knit community is torn apart by the presence of the puzzle box.
