 Answering a request from [personal profile] leikomgwtfbbq here's a scene from an issue of the new Hellraiser that turns the mythology on its head. Warning, lots of gore.

Ooohkay... did NOT expect THAT (Though I have long harboured a fanfic notion that the nails were the true core of Pinhead, and that various hosts have been used)

Not sure I see this working long term... Kirsty has the obsession all right, but not the revelling in pain that goes with it in Cenobites.

I hadn't really thought through my interpretation of Pinhead - spirit with various hosts, anthropomorphic personification, periodical resurrection as human who always comes in contact with and solves the Lament Configuration, et cetera - but in the previous series at least his history went back at least to the Aztec era. Who worshipped him as Xipe Totec.

Not that those comics are really relevant here. Just writing aloud.

No, the old Epic Hellraiser series is still in continuity. If you pick up the first trade, the Harrowers and everything are mentioned by name. This is merely a continuation and similar to the original ending that series was supposed to have before it was cancelled. Barker was pretty involved with that one and is out right writing this one.

Interesting. Kinda wish I'd been following this... Anyone know when it's going to be in trade?

The "Buddy, you need a doctor?" guy is either very dumb or very genre savvy.

"You need a doctor there, buddy? 'Cuz I know you're bleeding and puking all over the floor, but hell, maybe you're into that kind of thing. Maybe you LIKE having puncture wounds all over your face. I ain't here to judge."

The "tentacles" are Leviathan.

Seems like an odd thing for the floating diamond to manifest.

I always wondered what happened to Kirsty after Hellseeker. (And I always figured she'd be a Cenobite sooner or later, somehow. One of my fan-theories was right! Huzzah!) Thanks a lot! :D
