Okay, Hellblazer made it to issue 300 before it got its cancellation notice. Interestingly, the original name of the comic wasn’t going to be Hellblazer, but Hellraiser until Clive Barker and the studio people got in touch.
Well now Hellraiser is about to have its comic series, created with Clive Barker and Boom! Studios, put down with a nail gun. Six to the head, bam bam bam bam bam bam! Issue 20 out this month is its last, and the sequel mini-series The Road Below ends in January.
But just as Hellblazer is being reborn into the less sweary, less sexy, less interesting Constantine, so Hellraiser will also be reborn.So expect a new Hellraiser #1 of some sort for then…
Though with just as much sex violence and bad language.
