As THE quintisential fan of Clive Barker and his HellRaiser series of trade paperbacks, this was one of the best. Additional artists, such as Neil Gaiman ( remember the awesome Sandman series ? ) add memorable weaves of horrific story-telling. This is a must buy for any fan of Clive Barker, or anyone looking for just enough to keep you under the covers with the lights on!
