Last June, we reported that that the graphic novel Hellraiser: Anthology Vol 2 would include an origin story for one of Pinhead’s most compelling henchmen: The hideous and intimidating Chatterer Cenobite! A franchise favorite, news of an origin story excited fans; but what makes this even more notable is that the tale will be written by the Chatterer himself! Nicholas Vince played the toothy fiend in Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II. As the actor who made the character iconic, and a skilled writer in his own right, fans of Hellraiser and Clive Barker can’t wait to read it.
