WHY WE LOVE IT: Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the HELLRAISER mythos as only he could, building a long-form narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series-free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: HELLRAISER: BESTIARY will pick up where classic horror comics anthologies like Tales From The Crypt, Vault of Horror, and the more recent Flinch left off. And not only will some of comics' rising stars, such as Ed Brisson (Sheltered), and Michael Moreci (CURSE), get a chance to open the puzzle box in this series, but the first issue features the comics debut of award-winning novelist Victor LaValle (The Devil in Silver, Big Machine). WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians! This first issue contains the start of a six-part serial written by Mark Miller (CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT) and Ben Meares (HELLRAISER ANNUAL 2013), and drawn by Carlos Magno (DEATHMATCH), where a group of mercenaries are hired to steal Pinhead's pins. Also, superstar author Victor LaValle teams with artist Colin Lorimer (CURSE) to tell a story set on the outskirts of New York City, as a close-knit community is torn apart by the presence of the puzzle box.
The Isle of Kipling has known war between the Animal Tribes for generations. But when a pirate ship crashed to the island shore, the arrival of four infant survivors was deemed an omen to signify the end of the war. Divided up between the tribes in a fragile act of peace, the four children grew up separate from one another, not knowing of one another's existence. But years later, a simple run through the jungle for Mowglii and her adopted mother wolf accidently disrupted the peace. And eventually Mowglii's mother wolf was murdered by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan. As a result, Mowglii finally achieved vengeance by killing Shere Khan. And although Mowglii's act may have quenched her thirst for revenge, it has rekindled the fires of war. Now, the borders between the animal tribes are shattered, the jungle is unsettled, and war on Kipling Isle looms on the horizon.
A pirate ship carrying four children crashes on the shore of a mysterious and merciless jungle. Each child is taken by a separate tribe of animals as a means to keep the peace between the species. It is a peace that will not last. Fifteen years later the children have now become young adults and each will have to face the destiny that awaits them in the unforgiving jungle. A place where only the strong will survive. From writer Mark L. Miller and the creative minds behind Grimm Fairy Tales and the Wonderland trilogy comes the wildest and newest reinvention of a classic that only Zenescope does right!
