As you know, BOOM! Studios is launching a new ongoing HELLRAISER comic book series written by Clive Barker that will be released in comic stores everywhere on Wednesday March 23rd, 2011 (that’s TODAY!).

This is only the third time that Clive has “touched” the characters — the first with his novella “THE HELLBOUND HEART” and the second being the first HELLRAISER film. With the HELLRAISER ongoing comic series, Clive Barker returns to his signature creation.
