see the release of the first issue of HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC,
which is set in Cassie’s past and is the perfect tale for new readers

one girl always survives. In HACK/SLASH, Cassie Hack not only survives,
she turns the tables by hunting and destroying the slashers that would
harm the innocent! Alongside the gentle giant known as Vlad, the two cut a bloody path through those who deserve to be put down…hard!
MY FIRST MANIAC explores Cassie’s first case. 16-year-old Cassie Hack
has just been forced to kill her mother, the undead murderer known as
the Lunch Lady. Now faced with overwhelming guilt, she must decide if
she can make a life with her foster parents or use her new-found
slasher killing skills to save other screaming teenagers. But does the
apple fall far from the tree? A perfect jumping-on point for new
readers and a previously untold tale for old fans!
