In the crossover, the monster-killing Cassie Hack will go on the hunt for a new version of the undead Crow who won't stop killing. As IDW noted, the four-issue miniseries will by written and penciled by Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley with Crow artist Jim Terry providing inks.
The crossover will introduce a new undead Crow, a man named Angeles Cero. Unlike previous versions of the goth icon, this Crow is less of an avenging angel who takes down those who wronged him. Instead, he's essentially a monster who leaves a path of dead bodies in his wake.
While Hack/Slash's Cassie and Vlad believe they are closing in on a serial killer they have been hunting for years, they're really chasing this Crow, who's a practically immortal supernatural being that can't be killed until his idea of vengeance is completed.
“The Crow defined me as a fan of the comics medium, but also introduced me to a whole world of music and fashion that I’d never had access to before–one that completely fit the attitude my teenage brain was desperately looking for,” Tim Seeley said.
The first issue of The Crow: Hack/Slash will also feature a variant cover by Buffy the Vampire Slayer artist Rebekah A. Isaacs and a special variant also inked by Seeley.
