HACK/SLASH    
Issue Number: volume I
Writer: Tim Seeley
Artist: Stefano Caselli
Cover: Stefano Caselli
Format: 48 pages perfect bound color comic.
Retail Price: $4.95
Ship Date: April

Synopsis:
Slashers. You know the genre….some masked nut case chases down and creatively murders a group of attractive teenagers with poor decision making skills, who have unleashed the killer’s repressed psychosexual anger. These movies are associated with popcorn fun. They’re low brow entertainment to take a hot date too.
But for Cassie Hack, this ain’t no popcorn movie. Cassie, the daughter of the notorious Slasher, the Lunch Lady, travels the world with her monstrous partner, Vlad, hunting and destroying Slashers where ever they may be, whatever form they may take. But Cassie may have met her match. The residents of the small town of Eminence, Indiana are becoming victims, one-by-one, of a viscous undead killer and his army of zombie pets. Cassie and Vlad will have to wade, hip deep, through undead hamsters, cats, and dogs to save a beautiful veterinarian from a monster that makes all those “popcorn” Slashers look like Mother Teresa.
From the demented minds of Lovebunny & Mr. Hell writer/G.I. Joe artist Tim Seeley, and Vampirella penciler, Stefano Casseli.
Horror/Comedy

Press Release – HACK/SLASH RETURNS WITH ALL-NEW STORY ARC

HACK/SLASH RETURNS WITH ALL-NEW STORY ARC

A new enemy, a new partner and a new monster threat meet Cassie Hack head-on

Your favorite slasher hunter is back! Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS) and Steve Seeley (HOAX HUNTERS) return to the fan-favorite series created by Tim Seeley—HACK/SLASH—with an all new arc in SON OF SAMHAIN.

When a mysterious cult of monsters arises, Cassie is forced to return to the life she thought she’d left behind. Coupled with a new partner and faced with enemies unlike any she has battled before, Cassie must confront the darkness in the world—and in her own life—in new ways. The agents of evil never rest, and unfortunately for them, neither does Cassie Hack.

The newest chapter in Cassie Hack’s life will appeal to both long-time HACK/SLASH fans and readers looking for a jumping-on point. “Readers are going to get something that is immediately recognizable as Hack/Slash, yet unique in its own way as well,” said Moreci. “I think Tim told the story he wanted to tell, and that’s why he brought in Steve and I—we’re preserving what he did while building a whole new thing. There’s a lot of great stories to still tell with Cassie Hack and, hopefully, Son of Samhain is just the beginning.”

“All biases aside, I’ve been a Hack/Slash fan from the beginning. It’s a smart book with equal parts horror, comedy, action, sexiness; you name it. We knew continuing that legacy would be a difficult task, considering its history and loyal fan base, but Mike and I are damn proud of what we are doing with the book,” said Steve Seeley. “It’s still a sexy, comedic, action-y, horror comic, except it takes two of us to write it now. Mike’s all sexy action. I’m comedic horror. This is our sequel… the next step in the evolution of Cassie Hack.”

HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN #1 arrives in stores on 7/2, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140592. An incentive variant cover featuring art by Cameron Stewart will also be available to order with Diamond Code MAY140593.

Press Release – Tim Seeley Variant Cover With New Grindhouse Style Series, SALLY OF THE WASTELAND

SallyOfTheWasteland_Cov  SallyOfTheWasteland_TIM SEELEY_Variant_

SALLY OF THE WASTELAND
TAKE A BLOOD-SPATTERED RIDE INTO DARKNESS!

DETAILS:
SALLY OF THE WASTELAND #1
Publisher: TITAN COMICS
Writer: Victor Gischler
Artist: Tazzio Bettin
32pp / FC / 1 of 4 / $3.99
On-sale July 30

SYNOPSIS:
Southern Louisiana, 82 years after the Fall. The apocalypse has come and gone, leaving behind a withered, ravaged landscape of wreckage and mutant crawfish. Still, you gotta laugh, and Sally does, often using her beloved shotgun, Bertha, as the punchline!

Inspired more by lust than common sense, and by a teenage desire to protect Tommy, the object of her desires, Sally leaves her bar job and joins the deranged crew of the Mississippi Duchess on a mission into the remains of New Orleans.

Saving the remains of civilisation plays second best to keeping her sweetheart safe as our smart and sexy princess of the wild frontier runs a gauntlet of gigantic genetic freaks and roving gangs of blood-hungry barbarians!

The ever-so-cute but ever-so-slightly-insane Sally is the wayward daughter of writer Victor Gischler (X-Men, Angel & Faith, Noir) and artistic up-and-comer Tazzio Bettin. This first issue in a fantastic new series proves Armageddon can be fun!

SALLY OF THE WASTELAND #1 comes with a 1:10 order incentive variant cover by TIM SEELEY!
