Following the success of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Epic Comics began publishing a series of comic book spinoffs for the Hellraiser franchise. The series ran from 1989 to 1993, each issue containing a set of short stories, with creator Clive Barker acting as a consultant on all of them.
In 2011, Boom! Studios began reprinting select comics from this series under the title Hellraiser: Masterpieces (1 & 2). They also launched a new Hellraiser series, written by Clive Barker and Christopher Monfette.
