Today, BOOM! Studios unleashes the new ongoing Hellraiser comic book in stores around the country.

So prepare your soul for an epic journey into horror from one of the medium’s greatest voices, and starring one of the medium’s greatest characters, in an unforgettable new chapter of HELLRAISER. BONUS: this epic 40-page first issue features a 10-page backup story written by the co-writer and co-director of THE MATRIX trilogy, Larry Wachowski!

Featuring covers from legendary artist Tim Bradstreet and LEGENDS: THE ENCHANTED artist Nick Percival.
