    I have been enjoying the run so far and with the addition of Stephen Thompson on this issue and Leonardo Manco leading off the first two issues with aplomb, I feel the book may become known for its art as much as the storytellers. There is no reason for anyone to not dip in here and sample this wonderful property, even non fans of the franchise will get something enjoyable out of it Im sure, I know I have. Read Full Review

    "Hellraiser" is a horror comic based on a cheap series of movies that went for the gushing blood over storyline and character development nearly every time. It's nice to see them look toward storyline now. This issue drops plenty of scattered knowledge, and some frightening nasty moments, and it's a fun bit of business. It can only be hoped that the cast introduced here will come into play later on to effect because they've had a decent origin set up for further play. If you like your horror served black cold then this title is for you. For everyone else it'll be a tough and gamey pill to swallow. Read with caution. (What better advertisement for a comic of this taste?) Read Full Review
