Now witness Barker’s long-awaited return to tell a new chapter in the series’ official continuity—a trajectory that will forever change the Cenobites…and Pinhead! In this issue, Pinhead and Kirsty Cotton collide in a way that neither of them could possibly imagine. And when these two face off— no one is safe!
