Books of Blood

About Books of Blood

Two paranormal researches, Reg and Mary, hire a psychic, Simon, to assist in their investigation of a haunted house found at the address of 65 Tollington Place. Simon is a showman who has his own flashy methods of drawing out spirits. What Simon ultimately summons is something that no one involved in the investigation will soon forget.

This first chapter of the Books of Blood series is Clive Barker’s legendary debut into the world of horror literature. Adapted into motion by writer Mark Alan Miller (Next Testament, Hellraiser) and artist Sam Shearon, The Book of Blood pushes the limits of the motion comic platform and the boundaries of terror.

Read on, if you dare, and discover that everybody is a book of blood; wherever we're opened, we're red.

Omg. I'm so happy to see you here. Waiting for the continuation of Abarat so painful for me

Do you people think that Abarat would make a good "point-and-click", Adventure Game?

Hello, Mr Barker. I look forward to the release of Scarlet Gospels this May. I wonder what other projects you have in mind in the future. Well, other than the Hellraiser reboot, that is.

Hi there!

I was just informed of this page and I'm sad I didn't know about it sooner. My mom is a fan of your's, and up to a certain point she'd been to all of your book signings. She has very fond memories of you drawing a little skull for her personalized in one of the books - according to her it was at a signing where you had become more popular, and there was some form of rush or otherwise "non personalization" going on, but you did it anyhow, and it made her real happy. She always tells it with such glee because the regulator (or whatever you would call the person overlooking it) looked so irked that you had done it anyhow.

Personally, you're a name I've grown up with in the household, and I hope that I'll be able to dive into Mom's collection some day.

Happy holidays, have a wonderful New Year.

Hi Mr. Barker, I was wondering what is the "reading level" for your book Tortured Souls?

Mr. Barker... what is life? What is life without pain? The pain that assures us that we are alive. I'll tell you. Nothing.
