Comic book publisher Boom! Studios  debuted a web exclusive for the brand new Hellraiser comic series, written by Clive Barker. Boom! celebrated the release by raising hell all over the blogosphere. They reached out to bloggers and reviewers by offering the short story and pages of the preview for free. Then, they highlighted each and every instance of the coverage on their Twitter, Facebook pages and blog.
We’ve included a page of this unique web exclusive at the bottom of our post to give you a feel for the artwork and tone. The short story prelude is entitled At the Tolling of the Bell  and is downloadable via several sites including DreadCentral.com , which we’ve linked to here.
Several horror and comic sites have already reviewed the prelude and have added their thoughts on this web exclusive and the first issue. For your convenience, we’ve linked to a few of them below that we thought were pretty spectacular.
The following page is a sneak peek at the first issue of the Hellraiser comic. For more information about Hellraiser, visit Boom! Studios .
