CASSIE HACK’S BIG FAN
October’s HACK/SLASH annual bridges the gap to new ongoing series
Berkeley, CA – 13 July 2010 – In October, Cassie Hack will face off against her biggest fan in HACK/SLASH ANNUAL 2010: MURDER MESSIAH. Written by Tim Seeley, with art by Jethro Moralles, MURDER MESSIAH connects the events of the previous Devil’s Due series with the new ongoing HACK/SLASH series that will launch from Image Comics in January 2011.
“When we started off at Image, I wanted to give everyone a fresh starting point,” says series creator Tim Seeley. “So, we did Hack/Slash: My First Maniac. But my intent was always to continue with the further adventures of Cassie and Vlad, and this annual will set up a great new status quo for the ongoing series!”
HACK/SLASH ANNUAL 2010: MURDER MESSIAH is the story that links the DDP series to the new Image Comics ongoing. Cassie’s biggest “fan” — a serial killer — is on a spree, cleaning up her loose ends. That means no foe or friend is safe. Meanwhile, 14 years in the future, in an America ruled by the Black Lamp Society, street-witch Liberty Lochs is on a desperate quest to find Six Sixx’s guitar…
HACK/SLASH ANNUAL 2010: MURDER MESSIAH, a 48-page full-color comic book for $5.99, will be available October 13, 2010. HACK/SLASH MY FIRST MANIAC #1 (of 4) Second Printing (MAY108016) and HACK/SLASH MY FIRST MANIAC #2 (of 4) (MAY100478/MAY100479), both 32-page full-color comic books for $3.50, are available now.
