The opening pages start out with a bang. When the mental institution is being burnt down, Ferreyra depicts the chaos as the nurses are running around and screaming for their lives. In the midst of the destruction, some of the mental patients are actually enjoying the fire. In the second half of the story, Tobin has to go through a lot of exposition. Through medium and wide shots, Ferreyra keeps the panels engaging as the police officer and Declan's nurse are having a regular conversation. Always active, these characters are constantly moving around in a single location. It is quite impressive how Ferreyra can make these day-to-day situations look interesting, even though there is no scare or action taking place.

To distinguish reality from unreality, Ferreyra depicts the real world with vibrant and blossoming colors. The surreal world is drained of color, with a major focus on the grey tones.

“Hellraiser” #19 is a well-balanced combination of bloody gore and epic mythology. This isn't just a completely satisfying comic for “Hellraiser” and “Lord of Illusions” film buffs, but for all horror enthusiasts in general. You definitely want to be there when Pinhead unleashes his unholy powers onto the rest of the world.

Hellraiser #20

Nov 23, 2012

Hellraiser #20 is a satisfying conclusion that closes up a few story threads and leaves some open-ended. I became a fan after reading Christopher Monfettes eloquent and stylish dialogue in the first issue. Like many, I was caught by surprise when Pinhead defeated Kirsty and tricked her into taking his place in Hell. I kept on reading when Harry D Amour was brought into the mix. Though this is the last issue of the Hellraiser series, this is not the end of Pinhead and Kirsty Cotton. Barker still has some sights to show you, which is reason enough to be excited about The Dark Watch in 2013.
