HACKING AND SLASHING EVERY MONTH
Hack/Slash resumes monthly schedule with all-new ongoing
Berkeley, CA – 10 November 2010 – Since coming to Image Comics, Tim Seeley’s HACK/SLASH has been more popular than ever, with sold out printings of the first two HACK/SLASH omnibuses and the success of HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC, the four-issue miniseries that inaugurated the series’ move to Image.
In February, HACK/SLASH returns with an all-new monthly series written by creator Tim Seeley and drawn by MY FIRST MANIAC artist Dan Leister.
“We’ve brought in a bunch of new readers with our move to Image, and now felt like a great time to get back into an ongoing series!” Seeley says. “The new series will continue the kind of stories Hack/Slash readers love while being totally accessible to newbies!”
“We couldn’t be happier to have an ongoing HACK/SLASH series as part of our 2011 line-up,” adds Image Publisher Eric Stephenson. “Tim’s a fantastic talent and HACK/SLASH manages to compliment our other horror titles without covering the same ground.”
HACK/SLASH returns this February in all-new ongoing series by the creative team behind the hit HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC mini! Cassie Hack, killer of killers, and her partner Vlad hunt a slasher who haunts a small town’s Make Out Point. Meanwhile, Cat Curio, Former Teen Detective, searches for the man who put her in a coma and the murderous cult that employed him. What she finds will set up the biggest HACK/SLASH story yet. A great jumping on point for new readers!
