One by one, the four actors walk Martin through most of the anecdotes we were given in Seller's first Hellraisers book, and the artwork by Jake is fantastic. My favorite of the stories was that of Oliver Reed, as the artwork flows humorously without too much cluttered dialogue. After all, the stories in Sellers books are quite visual, so it makes sense that we see them drawn literally.
My only gripe with the book is that it does not capture every anecdote that the biography does; obviously it would be difficult to work every one into the narrative, so I don't deduct any stars for this, but I found myself craving more after burning through the Graphic Bio in one short sitting. For fans of the Hellraisers books, however, this is a must have.
Now, if only this could somehow be adapted for the screen. A film would be marvelous, but I'd settle for an animated short, TV show, or hell, even a motion comic...
Also appreciate the artwork which captures all four of these remarkable people and draws out their flaws and accomplishments admirably.
