EXCLUSIVE Images: BOOM! Studios Is Reissuing Clive Barker’s Classic ‘Nightbreed’ Comics!


I’ve been a Clive Barker fan for as long as I can remember.  Alongside Stephen King, he was one of my first literary loves when it came to horror and dark fantasy.  In addition to the world of Hellraiser, a large part of that love comes from my obsession with Barker’s film Nightbreed and the original novel on which is was based, CabalNightbreed was originally intended to be the first in a series of films telling the journey of the titular beings, but sequels were sadly never made.  Lucky for fans, Barker continued their adventures for awhile in comic form during the ’90s and the wonderful folks at BOOM! Studios are reissuing those comics this fall!

I had been hoping ever since BOOM! revived Nightbreed in comic form awhile back that someone would get around to reissuing the original run.  While you can track them down, those comics have been out of print for a long time and getting your hands on them can be pricey.  I’m rather overjoyed that I will finally be able to own a nice, lovingly-put together volume of them starting this fall.  I’ve includes the press information below, as well as various exclusive images for you to feast your eyes upon.  Is it September yet?  I’m ready to get my ‘breed on!
