Hack Slash

Ahhh, the smell of a new issue of an ongoing comic. It's always so sweet, especially if it's a series you've been following for years in minis and it finally hit the big time. Such is the case with Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash. The basic premise revolves around Cassie Hack, professional slasher killer and her compatriot, the mutated monster of a man with a heart of gold, Vlad.

You can see the cover to the left that this girl means business. She's a beauty but with a mean streak and those that seek to hurt the living have a world of hurt coming themselves.

The first issue revolves around a killer psychiatrist and he delves into Cassie's mind to give new readers a little backstory as to why she is the way that she is, which would be pure, unadulterated awesome. It's a great introduction to the series and I can't say I'm not fond of the subject material. If you like horror movies, you've come to the right place. Pick up yours wherever comics are sold or try a few online vendors.
