This week sees the release Hellraiser: The Dark Watch #5, but you can read the first pages right now before the issue hits stores. For those that haven't caught up on the series, Hellraiser: The Dark Watch is a relaunch of the ongoing comic book series, and is written by Clive Barker and Witch Doctor‘s Brandon Seifert.

”NEW ONGOING SERIES! THE NEW ERA OF HELLRAISER BEGINS! As promised, Clive Barker did not only return to the Hellraiser universe, he re- imagined it! Nothing is as simple as it seems – the old ways have been destroyed and a dangerous new world lies in its wake. Where are Elliott Spencer and Kirsty Cotton? Who will rule and who will serve? Rising star Brandon Seifert (WITCH DOCTOR, HELLRAISER: THE ROAD BELOW) joins forces with the legendary Clive Barker, with art by Tom Garcia, to begin this amazing new chapter in the history of one of horror’s greatest franchises.”

Hellraiser: The Dark Watch #5: "Harry D’Amour may be the new high priest of Hell, but he’s learning quickly that doesn’t promise much in Leviathan’s realm. The Cenobites only follow him grudgingly, and seemingly are acting on orders coming directly from Leviathan… meanwhile, D’Amour’s allies on Earth begin to think Harry has been corrupted beyond salvation by his new position. As Leviathan makes his next move, will the estranged allies be able to rise to the challenge?"
