I am a massive fan of the first collected best Hellraiser. It contained some great stories with amazing art work. Collected best volume 2 is quite frankly no-where near as good. It seems a bit thrown together and a bit sketchy.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the flesh 8 Nov. 2006
By Majo Pavlovic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, I would like to mention that I am 27 yrs old graphic novel author,and painter, as well as a comic art teacher, here in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

I'm about to publish my new work soon, together with my students, in a form of album.

But, let's get back to fantastic world of Mr. Barker, and gore visions of those authors, who had made his stories to life, on paper, and canvas.

I'm visualist in a first place, but I like a fine and interesting story to.

So, we have ten short stories in this collection.

My favorite one is PLEASURES OF DECEPTION, because the storyline is good, intense, but also confused and dark.

Artwork is dark and expressionistic, what makes this story complete.

CENOBITE has interesting artwork, but the story itself is not so good.

OLD WIVES' TALE has a superb story, but i didn't liked the artwork.

I think that everyone has a different oppinions, tastes etc, and all readers, or fans of HELLRAISER series can find something for them in this volume.

But the third volume is much better, trust me.

More stories, more pages, and some very creepy illustrations!

In any case, if you are a true fan of Mr. Barker's work, you should get one copy.
1.0 out of 5 stars Great Disappointment 17 Dec. 2013

I had great expectations for this graphic novel as it comes from the mind of Clive Barker in what can be termed his most lasting and influential contribution to the horror genre - The Hellraiser franchise. However, this graphic novel is a great letdown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear Pinhead, you're truly the Greatest... 13 Dec. 2005
By Stefan Isaksson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Okay, so I admit it: I'm a sucker for Hellraiser.

I've seen all the movies tons of times, according to me Clive Barker is the best author in the history of the world, I'm a collector of all the official action figures, I'll buy a replica of the Lament Configuration as soon as I can afford it, and I've even serious plans about hanging chains from the ceiling of my apartment. In other words; Hellraiser + Stefan = True.

All this means that I'm probably unable to be very objective when I review a Hellraiser comic. Or? Well, since I'm a great fan of the series I assume I think in a way that closely resembles that of other fans, and to all of you I can only say: Clive Barker's Hellraiser Collected Best II is a definite must for all of you who prefer hanging out with Pinhead and his fellow Cenobites. As is the case of all anthologies, not all contributions are equally good, but the greater majority of all the writers and artists who contribute to the collection should be very proud of what they've managed to produce.

Because it's truly an amazing collection. The story Razing Hell (pts. 1-3) is especially good, which uses the Hellraiser legend in a both creative and exciting way, and I had a constant smile on my lips as I read it. Other stories worth mentioning are The Blood of a Poet, which takes place in Europe after the First World War, and The Pleasures of Deception, where a young artist is inspired by the Cenobites into creating very macabre pieces of art.

These days, most horror movies are nothing but stupid stories mixed with fake boobs, lousy dialogues, and boring nü-metal music, and thus, being a horror buff it's very refreshing to partake in the Hellraiser legend, even though it's "only" through a comic.

I still prefer books to comics, but Hellraiser Collected Best II is truly a pleasure to experience, and I can honestly recommend it to all you Cenobites out there.
