Official Press Release
(January 21, 2005) Chicago, IL – Devil’s Due Publishing announced
today that an Evil Ernie/ Hack/Slash Crossover will hit stores this
summer. Evil Ernie, the much loved Prince of horror, made his name in
fandom history slaughtering millions with a style all his own
throughout much of the nineties. Part horror, Part humor, and all
angry undead teen, Ernie will take on Cassie and Vlad the hero duo in
Devil’s Due Publishing’s Hack/Slash series this July in Hack and
Slash: The Final Revenge of Evil Ernie.
Hack and Slash tells the tale of Cassie Hack and her Monstrous partner
Vlad. Together they track undead “Slashers” across the U.S and
eliminate them wherever they can. “For this one shot, fans can rest
assured that we will not be messing around with the CHAOS! character
at all.” commented Josh Blaylock President of Devil’s Due Publishing.
“Evil Ernie was born in a day when true metal heads collected comics
and that uncompromising sarcasm that made the character great will
still be there. Can I get a moment of silence, while everyone throws
the goat sign?”
The issue will be penned by renowned artist Tim Seeley and colored by
the talented Aadi Salman. Fans and retailers should stay glued to
www.devilsdue.net for more news as the crossover develops.
