“This time, we’re not only trying to make the goriest, most action-filled HACK/SLASH ever,” says creator and writer Tim Seeley, “we’re going into the logistics of how Slashers function, and how they can keep coming back. It’s like science class HACK/SLASH style.”
“Right from the start, I knew Hack/Slash was a comic after my heart. There are lots of horror and comic in-jokes- containing the silly plots and dialogue of slasher movies with an interesting twist, and characters you actually begin to care about. Considering that it just got optioned for a movie, it’s time to catch up on the original.” ~ Creature-Corner.com
