Free Mini-Issue of Clive Barker’s New Hellraiser Comic!

on March 23, 2011 | 6 Comments

As you’ll read in the upcoming April issue of RM (cover: Hobo with a Shotgun), the first issue of BOOM! Studios’ new ongoing comic book series Hellraiser hits comic stores today, marking the triumphant return of author Clive Barker to the characters and the universe that he created but has only plunged into on two previous occasions: the novella that inspired the whole franchise (The Hellbound Heart) and the first (and finest) film, which he wrote and directed.

To celebrate, Boom! Studios are giving away a completely self-contained, eight-page Hellraiser story called “At the Tolling of a Bell,” written by Barker and drawn by Leonardo Manco. This isn’t a preview of Hellraiser #1, it’s an all-new, original prelude to what goes down in the first issue.
