“God put me on this earth to raise sheer hell.” – Richard Burton
Hellraisers is the story of four of the greatest boozers of all time: Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O’Toole and Oliver Reed. Robert Sellers and JAKe cleverly weave the four biographies seamlessly into one fast-paced adventure of drunken binges, orgies, parties and fun.
Told through the eyes of Martin, a wannabe hellraiser, we begin our tale in a typical London pub at Christmas time. Martin sits alone at the end of the bar, drinking himself into oblivion. Our four hellraisers, alerted to a comrade in need, are compelled to intervene. One by one, they take this disillusioned soul on a personal tour of their lives, their tumultuous childhoods, rise to stardom, and chaotic personal lives; providing all wannabe hellraisers with a graphic account of four very cautionary tales.
Praise for Hellraisers:
“Be your own best friend and get Hellraisers by Robert Sellers & JAKe. One of the best graphic novels I’ve read in ages.” – Adam Hughes, DC Comics (Wonder Woman, Before Watchmen)
“Hellraisers is brilliant and rollicking. You can almost smell the fumes as you read. A graphic novel that will leave your eyes smarting like pickled onions.” – Julian Barratt, The Mighty Boosh
“Sellers captures their roguish charm and poignant melancholy, while JAKe expresses the glint in the eyes that never dimmed.” ★★★★ – Danny Graydon, Empire Magazine
