Jan 17, Ill D rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 14, David Agranoff rated it really liked it Shelves: During most of my life Clive Barker has been my favorite author, as far as professional heroes go he is one of them for sure.

He has had a rough go of it lately. Lots of projects and books have been promised and only half of those mostly films have seen the light of day. Publishing wise Barker was dropped by his long time publisher after failing to deliver a collection of horror shorts called the Scarlet Gospels. This collection has been rumored for almost a decade, and was said to feature Bar During most of my life Clive Barker has been my favorite author, as far as professional heroes go he is one of them for sure.

This collection has been rumored for almost a decade, and was said to feature Barker's return to the hellraiser-verse with a story about the death of it's villain Pinhead. Delay, after delay followed.

In part because what was supposed to be a short story about Pinhead, became a novella, then as Barker kept writing it became a very, very long novel. The Scarlet Gospels became a separate project and different short story collection was said to be on the way. Neither happened, I suppose Barker and the publishing powers that be had different ideas on how to market the work. The publisher claimed Barker couldn't stop revising it, or that he got distracted by other books Mister B.

Gone, Abarat 3 and film projects. Who knows for real. Hellraiser is one of my favorite films ever, I am sure for Barker it has special place as it was his first film as director. So like many Hellraiser fans he helplessly watched as shitty sequel after shitty sequel was made with Pinhead that seemed to have little to do with his story.

Personally I have found even Hellraiser 2 which Barker was somewhat involved with doesn't hold up well. Barker clearly fell back in love with the story while workin on the Scarlet Gospels. Good thing because he decided to get involved in writing this graphic novel series. Not only does it return to the mythlogy of the story but follows the first stories heroine Kristy Cotton. After 25 years of haunting memories a trip to hell and back she has devoted herself to destroying the box and any gateway to hell.

Pinhead on the other hand is bored. The painand pleasure is all getting to be tiresome. Barker seems to be building up the character for a rebellion against hell. This is classic Barker, weird tools and gadgets.

Deep non-tradtional mythos, and erotic horrors abound. This is the first Hellraiser story, since the first film that I could really get into. The art is perfect and disturbing. Is it perfect? Besides a Pinhead that is a little to talkative and a throw-away lover for Kirsty it's pretty close to a perfect Hellraiser story. Nov 18, Andy Haigh rated it really liked it.

Clive Barker is a name that's synonymous with horror, to most it's associated with an impressive entry into horror film history which not only gave birth to one of the most iconic figures in horror cinema but also introduced a chilling and disturbing world, that film was Hellraiser. Written and directed by Barker based on his short story titled The Hellbound Heart.

Barker somewhat naively signed away the rights to the world he had created not realising just how popular it would become. It quickl Clive Barker is a name that's synonymous with horror, to most it's associated with an impressive entry into horror film history which not only gave birth to one of the most iconic figures in horror cinema but also introduced a chilling and disturbing world, that film was Hellraiser.

It quickly fell into the hands of those more than willing to take what had been left behind and render what was once so powerful and disturbing into self parody. And so we see that Kirsty Cotton has grown up and is in a loving relationship but is still plagued by the horrors of her youth. Meanwhile in the M. Escher inspired Hell where the Cenobites dwell Pinhead has grown weary of the underworld and sets in motion a plan to seek respite from the tedium of Leviathan's domain via an agent working in the mortal world.

Kirsty Cotton is revealed to be not the only person to survive an encounter with the Cenobites and is part of a group of survivors that have following Kirsty's leadership set about gathering the Lemarchand devices. These are the artifacts created by the 18th century architect and toymaker which act as a conduit for portals between Leviathan's realm and the Mortal realm. The puzzlebox is the most recognisable as it was featured in the first film but there are several others including a snowglobe, a music box, a doll and more besides and each of these devices brings forth it's own specific cenobite s.

The story of each of these characters known to the cenobites as Harrowers is revealed with one being a former priest and another being a former agent of the Cenobites now seeking redemption.

And this, right here, was on the other side of it. The cenobites featured in Barker's film feature here with Butterball, Chatterer and The Female making appearances with the latter featuring heavily as Pinhead talks about his desires outside the realm of Leviathan. It also incorporates new Cenobites such as one whose bodily is partly clockwork with the gears bound into the flesh and bone of his body.

The characteristics of these new cenobites are related to the devices used to summon them. Another rather than wielding chains as utilised by Pinhead conjures up bone chilling cold and ice. As anyone familiar with Barker's film will be aware this is not for the squeamish and this story is no exception with the prologue being a particularly bloody affair. Artists Leonardo Manco and Stephen Thompson handle the numerous elements well, whether it be Kirsty Cotton and her fellow Harrowers, the architecture of Hell or the cenobites and their brutal and bloody work.

With several stand out images including one involving a New York cab and another featuring Pinhead sat at an ornate grand organ in Hell only instead of the regular pipes there's a host of flayed bodies towering over Pinhead with each one's face frozen in a moment of agony. The key to what makes this work so well is the tone. There's no humour here and Pinhead and the other cenobites do not trade in one liners or wise cracks and it's this lack of humour which will put off readers or make them want to immerse themselves in the unfolding narrative.

Best of all is Pinhead's dialogue is so well written you can hear it in the precise tones of Doug Bradley who is well known for his portrayal of Pinhead in Barker's Hellraiser and one of the only redeeming features of the several films Barker had no hand in with one example being his exchange with a terrified girl who having been kidnapped by Pinhead's agent in the mortal realm has inevitably given in to the lure of the puzzlebox left in the desolate room in which she has been a prisoner, Girl: Please I wanna go home!

Aug 17, Spencer rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this quite a bit, this is what The Scarlet Gospels should have been.

The art is pretty good, the story is interesting and adds a bit of depth to the hellraiser mythos. Most of all it stays true to the original hellraiser concept and provides gore aplenty! Oct 28, Ann D-Vine rated it it was ok Shelves: Compelling dialog and some fiendishly inventive visuals sadly can't overcome a lack of focus and a rather predictable plot, combined with the perhaps unwise decision to make this a sequel, and not a reboot, of the original two Hellraiser movies.

Clive Barker has a great imagination, but unlike the very first Hellraiser - a movie I appreciate as much for its simplicity as its depth - there's no core to this story, no central motif or theme.

Hellraiser Vol. 1

It's not much help that both the protagonist and antagon Compelling dialog and some fiendishly inventive visuals sadly can't overcome a lack of focus and a rather predictable plot, combined with the perhaps unwise decision to make this a sequel, and not a reboot, of the original two Hellraiser movies. It's not much help that both the protagonist and antagonist seem equally morally justified, with Pinhead acting as less of a villain and more of a tragic figure. Which isn't a terrible approach, but I was never shocked or scared by the Cenobites' appearances - in some of the latter Hellraiser material as awful as they could be , Pinhead's rediscovery of his humanity usually meant another, worse Cenobite would take his place as their leader - there was always, I felt, a monstrous presence lurking over the proceedings.

I don't get that here, and that damages the sense that there's much of anything at stake. If Pinhead isn't the villain, and Kirsty isn't the villain, then who is?

Does Hellraiser not have its roots, somewhat, in creature features, in monster movies? Are the Cenobites not beyond humanity - a force to reckon with? I suppose not. Be it Godzilla, or Freddy Krueger, or Jason, these characters endear themselves to us because they are akin to mascots. A good series, though, will ignore this, if it has to - Godzilla has shifted between being a hero and being a proper monster, Freddy dipped in and out of just being a zany goofball, and even Jason has become somewhat sympathetic between installments.

Sometimes it has worked, sometimes it's come off as outright ridiculous. The question is - does it work for Pinhead? I think the fiction could embrace Pinhead as audiences have, definitely.

But, sadly, I don't think it works here - and I'm left yearning for a character I can actually hate and fear. Feb 26, Tobin Elliott rated it liked it Shelves: This was only a "meh" at best for me. I completely believe the cenobites are one of the most brilliant creations to come out of Barker's magnificent mind, unfortunately, I don't think they've ever truly been pushed to their horrific extreme.

I was hoping for that here. It didn't happen. Instead, we got some behind-the-scenes manipulations that left the cenobites mostly off-stage.

While I agree they can easily be overexposed by too much screen time, there's still a perfect balance there that hasn' This was only a "meh" at best for me. While I agree they can easily be overexposed by too much screen time, there's still a perfect balance there that hasn't been found yet. Ah well. As for the art, it wasn't bad, but I actually preferred the second artist's work in the back half of the collection.

Originally posted CSI: I am endlessly impressed by the scope of Clive Barker's vision and I'm so happy to report that this graphic novel was really, really excellent. In fact, this is probably the best Hellraiser -related anything I've ever read or seen. Of course I realize that might not read as high praise considering some of the more recent films or anthologies regarding the Cenobites and their leader, but Barker's lack of involvement goes a long to explain why most of them are so Originally posted CSI: Of course I realize that might not read as high praise considering some of the more recent films or anthologies regarding the Cenobites and their leader, but Barker's lack of involvement goes a long to explain why most of them are so absolutely horrendous.

In terms of Barker's third contribution, the graphic novel format captured the absolute horror behind what these monsters do to people and really added some emotional heft to the experience. What surprised me in a really good way is that there's a real story here just as there was in the original novella and movie adaptation.

There was also a lot of forward momentum and curious introspective moments since Pinhead has begun to seek out ways to break free of his current infernal position. It was great to have Pinhead play a pivotal role and be the focus rather than merely offering up an eerie cameo or two. There seemed to even be a side to Pinhead that reminds me a bit of Christopher Carrion from the Abarat series.

Both, of course, are twisted and evil in many respects, but their desire to mean more is really compelling. Kristy Cotton also plays a pretty cool role as did other Cenobites and other humans as well.

I really liked the sections of back story that showed how other people have joined up to try to stop the Cenobites by gathering up and ultimately destroying the objects they use to cross over. Over all it'll be interesting to see what comes of it. I'm holding out hope that it won't be anything too predictable. Reader beware, however. This is not for the weak of heart and I have to admit that after I was done I sort of wanted to go hug kittens for a few hours.

That said Was there some disturbing violence? For sure.

Did it seem to be ridiculously gratuitous? No and I'd even be willing to say that behind most of the disgusting deaths there was some sort of purpose. Nothing is ever going to sell me on there being anything all that sexy or enjoyable about having creepy pale leather-wearing abominations rip a person apart with magic hooks and chains, but that's sort of the nature of the beast when it comes to anything Hellraiser. Besides, I've always felt that there was a a world of difference what Barker is doing with his concept and what others have done to his concept.

Others who have come after him seem to just use Cenobites as overly creepy closet monsters with a leather fetish who are way too into solving puzzle boxes.

There are still elements of that in the graphic novel, but there's significantly more substance to Barker's vision to go along with it. In conclusion, really dark and really enjoyable. It probably would help to understand what the Hellraiser saga entails, but readers might actually enjoy this more the less familar they are with the more recent sequels or other graphic novel collections. Personally, I can't wait for volume 2! Apr 14, Tarl rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the things that Clive Barker has touched in regards to the Hellraiser world, this shows that he still has a finger on the heartbeat on what makes horror.

I found the idea that Kristy and others touched by the Toymaker's creations hunting down said creations was an interesting idea. I'm not a huge one with using Kristy in any storylines, but overall it worked for this graphic novel.

The very fact that they included the Toymaker as part of Hellraiser cannon as far as Barker is concerned is wonderful. The storylines themselves throughout the book were interesting and captivating.

Kirsty is pulled back into the Cenobite world, where the demons decide to keep her, but, having discovered the human identity of the Cenobites early, Kirsty appeals to their latent humanity, specifically the Cenobite leader Pinhead Doug Bradley. Pinhead decides to release her, but he and his followers are killed by Channard, who has become a Cenobite himself.

With help of a teenage girl, Tiffany Imogen Boorman , who unknowingly assisted Channard in opening the box, Kirsty and Tiffany escape the Cenobite world and close the gateway behind them.
