Review – Hack/Slash Issues 1-3

Tim Seeley, Drawn by Daniel Leister. $3.50 Ah, the guilty pleasure of horror comics; you take a goth girl that likes to barely wear anything to fight off all types of monsters and team her up with a Jason type friend and you have the concept in a nutshell. In this new relaunch of the title under Image instead of Devil’s Due, we find several new characters as well as old favorites. The best of the new bunch is a guy called Samhain, the Pagan word for Halloween. Former hit man for the Black Lamp Society, he now is trying to destroy them with his interesting abilities. Overall the title hasn’t changed much over the course of years. Tim Seeley brings his version of classic horror characters, as well as new ones, as the groups villains but, calls them Slashers instead of monsters/serial killers/etc.. Their powers and back stories are interesting to say the least, some even make you feel sorry for the Slasher. The artwork is a good fit for the story and brings to life the sexiness of the main character Cassie Hack and the gruesomeness of Vlad and the the other Slashers. The bloody, brains and entrails flying around as well as the fight scenes marks this as a classic horror comic. But the style and design of it, is well thought out and helps bring all the members of this comics to life. Enough tho, this title might not be for everyone; or might just be a guilty pleasure because of the half-naked female Slashers and Cassie Hack, it’s still a original take on the horror genre and well worth a try if you get a chance.
