NEW ONGOING SERIES! THE NEW ERA OF HELLRAISER BEGINS! As promised, Clive Barker did not only return to the Hellraiser universe, he re- imagined it! Nothing is as simple as it seems – the old ways have been destroyed and a dangerous new world lies in its wake. Where are Elliott Spencer and Kirsty Cotton? Who will rule and who will serve? Rising star Brandon Seifert (WITCH DOCTOR, HELLRAISER: THE ROAD BELOW) joins forces with the legendary Clive Barker, with art by Tom Garcia, to begin this amazing new chapter in the history of one of horror’s greatest franchises.

    Overall I found Barker's and Seifert's writing excellent - the story never felt slow, and I enjoyed seeing the female Cenobite in a different role. Dark Watch #1 is really good - but it's clearly not a stand-alone, so I would mostly recommend this to fans of the franchise, specifically, the other Hellraiser titles.  Read Full Review

    "Hellraiser: The Dark Watch" #1 goes into a different direction in this promising new beginning. With the creative team-up of Barker and Seifert, they breathe new life into the franchise that has lasted after many disappointing sequels. While this re-imagination is geared to bring in new readers, longtime fans will be pleased the comic is close in tone to the first two "Hellraiser" movies. Read Full Review

    Seifert obviously has a love for these characters and that comes through in the quality of his writing. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Feb 22, 2013

    The mystery of who these people are and how they're connected definitely keeps the reader invested, it may not be the best book on the stands, but I'm at least interested to see what happens next. Read Full Review
