Saint Sinner is a horror/fantasy comic book series published by Marvel Comics' Razorline imprint that ran from 1993 to 1994. Created by filmmaker and horror/fantasy novelist Clive Barker as one of the imprint's four interconnected series, it starred Philip Fetter, a man possessed by both a demon and an angel.

Aside from the title, it is unrelated to the Barker-produced telefilm Saint Sinner.

Publication history[edit]

Created by filmmaker and horror/fantasy novelist Clive Barker, was published for seven issues (cover-dated Oct. 1993 - April 1994). Written by Elaine Lee, it was drawn by Max Douglas for the first three issues. Richard Pace provided breakdowns on issue #4, finished by Douglas, and penciled issue #5, inked fifth-issue pencils, inked by Douglas). Larry Brown]] drew the final two issues.[1]

Lee also wrote a Saint Sinner prose short story in the final release of the Razorline imprint, Ectokid Unleashed (Oct. 1994), a 48-page one-shot starring the title character of another Razorline comic.[2]

Clive Barker called Saint Sinner "just a wild one, the series which hopefully will press the limits of what comics can do."[3]

Fictional character biography[edit]

Saint Sinner centered on Philip Fetter, a man possessed by both a demon and an angel. With the ability to evolve or regress anyone from superhuman to primal beast, Fetter travels the world changing lives.
