Hellraiser Comics Revisited | Pursuit of the Flesh
Pursuit of the Flesh

Title: Pursuit of the Flesh

Words and pictures by: Clive Barker, Christopher Monfette and Leonardo Manco

Published in: Hellraiser #1 (2011)

And so to the new series, turning its back on Marvel's later cartoon capers and returning the franchise to its creator. The first issue sees a jaded Pinhead lamenting his cenobite afterlife and looking to make a faustian bargain of his own. And we also pick up with the life of Kirsty Cotton, protagonist of the first two Hellraiser films (and a key player in Hellseeker, the actually-not-bad sixth). Oh, and it looks like The Harrowers will be involved...

Barker has been working on The Scarlet Gospels, a meeting of the Hellraiser mythos and his frequent protagonist Harry D'Amour (played by Scott Bakula in Lord of Illusion) for years, and the Drive Angry writer/director team of Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer are working on a Hellraiser reboot. Plenty for the faithful to look forward to then, but if Hellraiser teaches us anything, it's that you should be careful what you wish for.
