Hellbound (Dark Horse)

From the director and screenwriter of Train to Busan, cartoonist Choi Gyu-Seok and translator Danny Lim comes the critically acclaimed and soon to be Netflix series The Hellbound, available in English for the very first time.

One day, you will receive a message from an unknown sender. The message will only include your name, the fact that you are going to hell, and the time you have left to live. There is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide—no escape. When the time counts down to zero, supernatural beings manifest to condemn you to hell. As the nation falls into unrest, a new religious sect begins to interpret the bizarre occurrence as the will of the divine. Could this be a sign of something grander—a blessing in disguise, a holy reckoning, or an evil curse? Amid social chaos and increasing hysteria, the people must find a way to survive this inexplicable terror.

Parasite director Bong Joon-ho had this to say :

“Choi Gyu-seok’s sharp and keen drawing style goes well beyond depicting the modern Korean’s physique, expression, and wrinkles. It reaches a genius level where we can feel the character’s anxiety and fear. A truly overwhelming world of fear that cannot be explained with words like “God’s prank” or “grand nonsense.” We are already burning in the center of the hell that Yeon Sang-ho and Choi Gyu-seok are portraying”.

Following on from that actor Park Jung-min had this to say :

“This book clearly reveals the anxiety of this era through the simple, yet dramatic setting of a prophecy to hell. It’s even fun and tense. It also feels like somewhere between Train to Busan and The Fake. In a world where even opinions become information, what do we believe? Why? How? This book provides you food for thought.”


The terror of The Hellbound Volume 1 arrives October 26, 2021, and is available for pre-order now through AmazonBarnes and Noble, and your local comic shop for $17.99.
