To kick off the release of Hellraiser #1 — now available in comic shops across the nation — Clive Barker and BOOM! Studios is making available for download an absolutely free, all-new, all-original Prelude To Hellraiser #1 to whet your appetite for the insidious horrors of Hellraiser #1.
“This is an unprecedented chance to spread the word of comic books,” said BOOM! Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ross Richie, “with one of the biggest authors and with one of his signature creations. Non-comic book fans, lapsed comic book fans, and horror aficionados who don’t go into comic book stores will all be excited and interested in this. And we are calling on the fans to get the word out to them. Send this via Facebook, Twitter, torrents, and e-mails to everyone in your life that you think would dig this, and let’s increase the overall pool of people worldwide who read comic books! I can’t think of an easier way to share this great comic. They don’t call it Portable Document File for nothing!”
This new comic book series marks only the third time Barker has written the character: first in the original novella The Hellbound Heart, second in the original seminal horror classic Hellraiser film.
“With all the tremendous work and effort poured into the Hellraiser comic series, we’re confident that the second readers feast their eyes on those first pages they’ll be clamoring for more,” says Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Whether you’re a regular comics reader or not, Hellraiser and Clive Barker are unmistakable names in horror, and if you read the free Prelude To Hellraiser #1 I’m sure you’ll agree Hellraiser is a series worth picking up!”
Hellraiser #1 and the Prelude To Hellraiser #1 PDF are written by Clive Barker and Cristopher Monfette with art by the sensational Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer). Hellraiser #1 is a 40 page giant with a back-up story by Larry Wachowski (The Matrix) and Marc Pacella and ships with A & B covers in a 50/50 split with art by Tim Bradstreet and Nick Percival respectively, as well as a very special 1-in-50 incentive cover drawn and signed by legendary master of horror Clive Barker himself! This title is suggested for Mature Readers.
