Hellraiser Comics Revisited | The Harrowing / The Harrowers
The Harrowing / The Harrowers

Words and pictures by: Clive Barker and various

Published in: Hellraiser #17-18, The Harrowers #1-6

Boom claim their new series as the first time Clive Barker has returned to Hellraiser since his Hellbound Heart novella and the first film, but he does have story credit on this short-lived, multi-authored spin-off. The expanded mythology which set up Hell as series of grey corridors, and the cenobites as in thrall to a geometric shape called Leviathan, all comes from Hellbound: Hellraiser II, which gave Barker a polite executive producer credit but came mostly from the minds of screenwriter Peter Atkins and director Tony Randel. The Harrowing then, was Barker returning to the toybox that others had been adding to in his absence, and involves the titular brigade of Hell-escapees, whose mission is to go back in and liberate others. The mini-series was subtitled, ahem, Raiders of the Abyss. Marvel legend Gene Colan did the pencils.
