    • *This review applies to both Volume 1 & Volume 2 of 'Hellraiser: Collected Best'. So, I absolutely LOVED the film 'Hellraiser', Clive Barker's directorial masterpiece. I also loved 'Hellraiser 2'. Then as the movie sequels went on I liked them less and less until I got downright sick of it all (didn't we all?).But the first two movies really grabbed my attention, as did Pinhead and the 'Cenobites'. There was also lots of talk of the Lemerchand Puzzle Box and made clear that it was steeped in [...]


    • I did the picture of Abigor that is on the cover when I was in high school and won people's choice--and I'm still a HUGE pinhead fan so I've probably read everything in this collection but in separate places--this is one I would really love to find!


    • Bought it mainly because I wanted to find out more about Leviathan and the Cenobytes. Unfortunately it seemed more like Barker was trying too much to appeal to a traditional comic audience than his usual sort of audience. Artwork was generally nice though and the stories were generally enjoyable.



    • So, I’m not exactly a fan of the Hellraiser franchise. I mean, sure it’s got a cool BDSM centric aesthetic and the first film is good, although objectively flawed, but for the most part the series kinda sucks. Color me surprised when I found in a lot I bought off eBay an issue of the Epic Comics Hellraiser series, read it, and found out how good it was and how little to do with the films it had. I picked up the three out of print trade paperbacks that collected what Checker Book Publishing G [...]


    • Like many fans of horror from the 80s, I've since had to reevaluate Clive Barker's contribution to literature, movies, and comics. When the best he can give us is chopping people up and impaling people on meathooks, it just comes across as a collection of immature ideas and sickness.Not to say that some of his novels weren't good. Some were (Damnation Game in particular was awe inspiring). But that Pinhead nonsense just needs to be put to pasture. Barker likes to say that there were 9 movies of [...]


    • I picked this up for a Halloween reading. I borrowed it via Interlibrary Loan through my library as well. Anyhow, fans of Clive Barker and Hellraiser will definitely like this one. It is a collection of short graphic novels by a good roster of authors. I saw it included Neil Gaiman, so that was the draw for me. Since there are different artists for the stories, you get a sampling of different art styles, which I think will appeal to the more visual readers of graphic novels. I liked it, though I [...]


    • I love Barker's novels, and the expansion of the hellraiser world is always welcome, as long as its done well, and in the spirit of the originalis is one of the best collections out there, gathering some of the best writers to play in the shadows of barkers hellish landscape.


    • An interesting collection of material from the 1990s' Clive Barker's Hellraiser anthology title, featuring 11 stories, out of which one is a double length (as in two issues) one.Apart from the double length story, "The Harrowing", on which Barker has a story credit, this volume is all about a variety of writers and artists interpreting Barker's Hellraiser mythos in different ways. The stories vary in quality, but highlights include "Dead Things Rot", written by D. G. Chichester and co-plotted an [...]


    • This one was wow. Snagged it at Frugal Muse when I was selling books. Waffled on it. Glad I got it. But it had stories by Neil Gaiman and Mike Mignola so yeah. Of course, the themes are very adult, and some of them are stomach turning (there is one serial killer story, one pedophilia story, and a WHOLE lot of nauseatingly inventive cenobite / hell tortures.) The art is very visceral and disturbingly dark. (Frankly, being the horror-hound I am, I'm almost delighted when I end up with such an acut [...]


    • I love a good horror book that is nothing like anything else and is not easily guessable. Hellraiser was a good read and Clive Barker at his best with the interesting characters that come alive to scare the crap out of you! I wouldn't want to run into any of them in the dark!And by the waye movie was good when it first came out, but doesn't do the book any justice! Don't bother watching it now because being 2015, the special effects are so outdated that the scariness is completely lost.


    • This would have rated a 5 for me but the way that each individual short story was seperated and mixed together confused me slightly until about half way through the book but all in all I loved the stories, and the art when available was awesomely drawn.




    • 2.5: A collection of different authors/artists will provide varying quality. I enjoyed the ones involving the Harrowers the most, but there are other gems in there as well.



    • I've read all three volumes of Hellraiser: Collected Best, and they're all great, if you're into that morbid mythology that is.


    • Read the first book after seeing the film for the umpteenth time and love it. The film and book do differ but ultimately terrifying anyway!!!
