Seraphim's Hellraiser Anthology

Following their involvement in writing spin-off Hellraiser comic stories for Boom! Studios, members of Seraphim's creative team including Ben Meares, Christian Francis and Mark Miller came together to produce the in-house Hellraiser Anthology graphic novel in April 2017.
First teased with this video in October 2016, the Seraphim project sought out artists familiar with working on Hellraiser comic series including Daniele Serra and Nick Percival and also ran an open call to populate a gallery of related artwork.

...other comments on volume one


Mark Miller (Seraphim) : "We chose to publish this anthology in-house for one main reason. It frees us to tell stories that are entirely uncensored. Hellraiser, as a film and comic book franchise, has always needed to be censored to one degree or another. By producing this comic in-house, and distributing it straight to Hellraiser fans via our web store, the wide array of talented people on the book are free to tell the stories they want to tell, and dig as deep into their twisted imaginations as they please. And, let me tell you, the experience has been utterly freeing for all involved, and that creative freedom bleeds through the pages of this anthology."

"We are accepting submissions of art of any kind for consideration of inclusion, as long as it deals, either directly or tonally, with the Hellraiser mythos - there is no censorship with this graphic novel, so anything goes!"

Mark Miller (Seraphim) : "This is easily the most personal project I've seen pass through these walls. It's as lovingly curated as it is delightfully grotesque. I'm proud to have my [name] in its pages."

Ben Meares (Seraphim) : "On the fourth of July weekend on the webstore you can get the trade paperback of Hellraiser Anthology. It's all the stories, everything that was in the hardback, much cheaper than the previous version. And everything is in there and the only difference is that it's a floppy cover... Retail is twenty bucks"

...other comments on volume two


Ben Meares (Seraphim) : "[Hellraiser]'s a wildly versatile mythos, and with this second volume we get to explore with even more variety the possibilities within the world that Clive has so graciously allowed us to play in. Volume Two will feature more stories, more pages and more creators than Volume One. I've been absolutely floored with the kinds of original, fresh and brilliant stories everyone involved has contributed."
