Clive Barker's Hellraiser Vol. 2 really took off from where the first volume of Barker's return to this cult classic left us, and I am still unsure how I feel about all the new approaches Barker decided to take with his horror brand.

Second volume puts Kirsty in a situation where she has to do difficult decisions while playing the nasty game of manipulation with humanity seeking Pinhead. As much as Pinhead desires to get his human form back, is he really a demon, a man who can play it simple and

Rough. Rugged. And Raw!
I loved this. Feels so nostalgic, yet different, by revisiting the Hellraiser story in the form of a graphic novel. Really looking forward to reading volume 3.

I borrowed this through Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

I'm completely unfamiliar with this canon. But I still liked it enough to want to keep going. I get the feeling it might have been obtuse even if I were up to date.

A série "Hellraiser" continua em BD...e é fantástica. Clive Barker é o escriba de serviço de uma narrativa que prende por ser empolgante, sofisticada, povoada de personagens fantásticos e momentos de terror puro e duro. Pensem num Sandman à Neil Gaiman não tão cerebral, com mais acção e um pouco mais sangrento.

First one was better, in my opinion. Still, this was pretty fantastic. It follows the story of Pinhead's increasing desire to become human. Sick, twisted, lyrical, and just fantastic. Can't wait to read more!

Savor the pain, Kristy Cotton. It will be the last sensation you'll ever truly feel.

This book is just like every Hellraiser movie after the first one: a boring cash grab. Sure it has gore, sure it has Pinhead, but it also has a mind numbing plot.

Not as bad as being dismembered by a Cenobite though, I suppose.

Sometimes love can be a damning thing. Quite literally. Love for the ones you have lost never to be seen again. This has driven Kirsty Cotton to make a deal one might regret for the rest of eternity. And, just maybe, Pinhead might have the last laugh after all.

If the previous paragraph piqued your interest- you are in for the right comic! It starts right where the first volume left off and is not meant for the new-comers. This whole series is not meant of newcomers anyway. It's all continuity of
Volume 2. continues to be a superb horror comics!

Still full of things you'll be probably too disgusted to look at, let alone touch. Lots of blood and body parts everywhere. And body's... Sometimes they are dead, sometimes half dead, sometimes in various states of mutilation that you'll wonder what is keeping all the pieces together:) Its chains, mostly:))
This one is for big boys and girls only, so keep your kids away from this!

Im amazed at how something so full of flesh and blood can have so dee

If you own a puzzle box that looks like the one from Hellraiser, don't open it. I'm kidding..Hellraiser is one of the scariest horror franchises of all time. The characters, setting, story & execution of the series is absolutely classic. This book focuses more on the actions of Pinhead & his army of ruthless Cenobites, which I'm glad for. These characters have MADE what Hellraiser is today.

Really enjoyed Stephen Thompson's art so far. He's a good fit for this story, but apparently he can't keep up a monthly schedule. This story is a continuation of the first 3(?) Hellraiser films. Looking forward for the rest of the series.

I did not see this coming!!! Volume 2 is full of fun, Kirsty pleads a dark bargain with Pinhead and finds out the consequences. The gore was on point and the artwork were great, pain really is pleasure.
I enjoyed the 2nd volume of this even more than the first. Pinhead's manipulation of Christy was excellent. The story's ending seemed predestined from the first hellraiser film. A very interesting series so far.

Volume 1 was excellent but... this was just alternated between dreadfully boring and tediously gross. The artwork was great, and I'll be back for volume 3... I just don't think this was anywhere near as good as the previous installment.

It would've been nice if volume one showed up via ILL first, then maybe I would have followed it a little better.

Clive Barker is definitely my favorite writers of all time and an inspiration to me.
The art and story is so much better that the first volume.
But altogether is was a magnificent experience.
