20 AUGUST 2014

It's a stellar new comic week, with the premiere of two of the summer's hottest new comics - Grant Morrison's highly anticipated MULTIVERSITY, which explores the many different parallel versions of the DC Universe, and a new thriller from the masters of noir Brubaker and Phillips, THE FADE OUT.  Other debuts this week are the print version of digital hit SENSATION COMICS: WONDER WOMAN, the DARK HORSE PRESENTS anthology starts again at #1 with a story featuring Geof Darrow, three classic pulp heroes team up in JUSTICE INC,  and my pick of the week, the spectacularly beautiful all ages comic LITTLE NEMO: RETURN TO SLUMBERLAND. We also say goodbye to ORIGINAL SINS, TRINITY OF SIN PANDORA, and DEADPOOL DRACULA'S GAUNTLET. Also in store: Warren Ellis' new trippy mystery SUPREME BLUE ROSE and dystopian TREES, ADVENTURE TIME and ADVENTURE TIME: BANANA GUARD, STORM, BATMAN AND ROBIN, TEEN TITANS, UMBRAL, MS MARVEL and WICKED+DIVINE (wooo!). 
What are you excited to read this week? Talk to us @DavesComics!

Clive Barker's Hellraiser Bestiary #1 (Of 6)

WHY WE LOVE IT: Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the HELLRAISER mythos as only he could, building a longform narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series-free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: HELLRAISER: BESTIARY will pick up where classic horror comics anthologies like Tales From The Crypt, Vault of Horror, and the more recent Flinch left off. And not only will some of comics' rising stars, such as Ed Brisson (Sheltered), and Michael Moreci (CURSE), get a chance to open the puzzle box in this series, but the first issue features the comics debut of award-winning novelist Victor LaValle (The Devil in Silver, Big Machine).
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians! This first issue contains the start of a six-part serial written by Mark Miller (CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT) and Ben Meares (HELLRAISER ANNUAL 2013), and drawn by Carlos Magno (DEATHMATCH), where a group of mercenaries are hired to steal Pinhead's pins. Also, superstar author Victor LaValle teams with artist Colin Lorimer (CURSE) to tell a story set on the outskirts of New York City, as a close-knit community is torn apart by the presence of the puzzle box.
