MONSTER MASHUPS #25

I should make some mention of one of the few monster-mashes that was born from the skull of one creator, although to my knowledge Clive Barker never crossed over his Cenobites and Nightbreed characters. That convocation of creatures appeared only in an Epic Comics production, JIHAD, which I reviewed here.

In keeping with Clive Barker's wishes, at no time do the Epic authors use the name "Pinhead" for the guy with all the pins in his head.
