It is not a good week in hell. First Vertigo gives “Hellblazer” the axe, only to create a way less interesting version of Constantine in the DCU. Now, BOOM! Studios rips out the hearts of horror fans by bringing an end to Clive Barker’s current Hellraiser ongoing. The series has been a favorite of the BD staff for quite some time, and there’s no real explanation as to why it’s getting canceled…I had to find out via Bleeding Cool. The book ends with issue #20 this month.
UPDATE: BOOM! Studios just sent out a teaser for more “Hellraiser”. Looks like the jig isn’t up.
Along with the final issue of the ongoing this month, Brandon Seifert’s miniseries “The Road Below” will come to a close in January. However, Bleeding Cool reports that the publisher will be relaunching the series in some way, so perhaps it is not the end for our Cenobite friends.
