NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH ONE-SHOT CROSSOVER: A BLOODY GOOD READ
HackSlashNailbiter NailbiterHackSlash

Two hit series come together in the ultimate serial killer standoff
Bestselling writers Joshua Williamson (BIRTHRIGHT, NAILBITER) and Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH) team up with artists Mike Henderson (NAILBITER) and Emilio Laiso (HACK/SLASH) for a crossover one-shot event of killer proportions—NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH—coming to Image Comics on March 4, 2015.

“Josh and I share a fascination with B-movie horror and serial killer culture,” said Seeley. “As soon as I read Nailbiter I knew our worlds were gonna collide.”

Williamson added: “Hack/Slash has been one of my favorite books for a long time, and once we started running with Nailbiter, I knew we were playing with some of the same tropes and twisting them. Cassie and The Nailbiter HAD to meet. Doing this flip book with Tim has been a blast. One of the scariest and most messed up scenes we’ve done in Nailbiter takes place here. Whenever I tell people about it, I can see their skin crawl.”

In NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH, the infamous serial killers of Buckaroo, Oregon meet the ultimate serial killer hunter, Cassie Hack… let the blood-bath begin. In this one-shot it’s Cassie Hack vs. the Nailbiter! Vlad vs. the Lucha Eliminador! IT’S ON!

NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH features two brand new tales of terror by the creative teams of the Image hits NAILBITER and HACK/SLASH, and Tim Seeley makes his grand return to the character he created to give you a nasty blast from the past. If you’ve ever needed an excuse to read these two horrific comics, now is your chance!

NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH (Diamond Code JAN150593) one-shot clocks in at 40 pages and hits shelves on March 4.

HACK/SLASH RETURNS WITH “SON OF SAMHAIN”

Collection of new story arc for a horror favorite out in January

titlepage

After Cassie Hack was the lone survivor of the killing spree of a slasher nicknamed “The Lunch Lady” — who was also Cassie’s mother — she committed her life to hunting down killers and supernatural evil. She thought she left that life behind, but in HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN, she’s drawn back into the slasher-fighting life when a cult of monsters plot to unleash an ancient evil on the world. With the help of a new partner, Cassie must confront a darkness like she’s never encountered before — and the darkness in her own life.

Created by Tim Seeley, the popular HACK/SLASH series debuted in 2004. The newest chapter of Cassie’s life, SON OF SAMHAIN, written by Michael Moreci (ROCHE LIMIT, HOAX HUNTERS) and Steve Seeley (HOAX HUNTERS) and drawn by Emilio Laiso (3 Guns), will appeal to long-time fans as well as readers just jumping on the series.

“We pick up a few years after the final arc of Tim’s series,” Moreci explained in aninterview at Comic Book Resources. “A lot has changed for Cassie, and we’re going to see her in a whole new way. She’s older here, more mature, and her life is shaded by everything she went through and what’s happened to her in the intervening years.”

HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN Volume 1 will be in comic book stores on January 14 and in bookstores on January 27. It is available for pre-order now.

Praise for HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN:

Son of Samhain is a simple pleasure — an unpretentious action comic with a strong lead and a Lovecraftian monster god. If that sounds like your thing, now’s as good a time as any to come aboard.” –John Gholson, Gutters and Panels
