IDW Publishing and Clive Barker To Release “The Thief Of Always” Comic Adaptation

Official Press Release

San Diego, CA (October 28, 2004) Master of horror Clive Barker’s The Thief Of Always is a fable appealing to horror and fantasy fans young and old. Now, IDW brings you its own lavishly illustrated adaptation of the thrilling tale.

In The Thief of Always, adapted by Kris Oprisko and Gabriel Hernandez, Mr. Hood’s Holiday House has stood for a thousand years, welcoming countless children into its embrace. It’s a place of miracles, a blissful round of treats and seasons, where every childhood whim may be satisfied… for a price, as young Harvey Swick comes to learn.

“I’m delighted that this story, which was my first venture in writing for children, will now find a new audience through this beautiful new edition,” said The Thief of Always author Clive Barker.

“Clive is an amazing author, and all his skills are brought to bear in this amazing tale,” says writer Kris Oprisko. “The Thief of Always packs all the thrills and scares you’d expect from Clive, while at the same time perfectly capturing a child’s sense of wonder.”

Clive Barker’s The Thief of Always will be published as three bi-monthly, full-color, 48-page issues starting in January 2005.
