Review: Imajica: The Fifth Dominion and The Reconciliation

Clive Barker’s Imajica was first published in 1991. This book is a riveting fantasy (or fantastique in the words of Clive Barker). Imajica is a huge book, not just in page length, but also in the scope and breadth of the number of characters, subject matter, and themes that it includes. Themes such...READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #8 Retro Review

Chapter Three of The Blasphemers had a lot of story packed in it, to even things out from the brawling last time.  D.G. Chichester continues to write, but Bret Blevins is no longer on the team.  Co-artist from last issue Mike Manley, is joined by Ricardo Villagran (Aquaman : Sword...READ MORE...

Happy Birthday Peggy O’Leary!

For those that don’t know, Peggy O’Leary taught Abarat to her Kodiak Alaska Middle School classes.  Clive Barker was so impressed with her curriculum he helped her out, and even gave her an advance copy of Abarat III : Absolute Midnight to help her out.  Clive has interacted with Ms....READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Hellraiser issue 6 Retro Review

I am noticing more and more returning names with each issue.  This issue sees three writers returning to the word of Cenobites, two of which contributed to the last issue (Issue 5).  This is a good thing.  A cohesive core of writers lends to more cohesive storytelling, which becomes evident starting...READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Issue 5 Retro Review

Before I talk about this week’s book, I have a correction to make.  Last week when talking about Nightbreed, I had said that in the Novel, as in the Comic, Detective Joyce whisked Babette to safety.  Turns out that was not the case in the Novel.  In fact, Joyce is...READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #4 Retro Review

Issue #4 concludes the Comic Adaptation of the Original Screenplay for the Nightbreed. It covers the final 20 minutes or so of screen time, (of the Theatrical release, mind you, not the Cabal Cut) and about 30 pages of the novel, Cabal.  These page counts have been based on my...READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #1 Retro Review

I am going to start this week’s post with a disclaimer. I have yet to see the Cabal Cut of Nightbreed. Therefore, I am not positive as to what all is in the Cabal Cut, with the exception of what the guys have talked about on the Podcast. That being...READ MORE...

Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Issue 4 Retro Review

The fourth issue continues with the Three story format, which I prefer. The first story, titled “Cenobite!” is written by somebody very familiar with Cenobites, The Chatterer himself, Nicholas Vince. The Art is provided by John Van Fleet who is mostly known for his cover work, including some issues of...READ MORE...
