Hack Slash Omnimbus Volume 1-Tim Seeley
Image Comics (previously by Devil’s Due Publishing)
The cover art alone caught my attention on this one. There sits a badass, barely dressed woman with a decapitated evil clown’s head next to her and a Fa-Q belt buckle. Whats not to like right? Cassie Hack is a killer of slashers and hunts with her partner, Vlad, who looks like a slasher himself. Cassie begins her mission after her own mother becomes an undead slasher, and is forced to do what she has to. Vlad is Jason Voorhees-esque with his deformity, large stature and childlike nature. Cassie’s dark sense of humor and quick wit made her a quick favorite of mine. Their contrasting personalities make them a irresistible duo. Definitely an adult book with all the gore and Cassie running around half nude quite often. I loved the whole idea of this book and how it’s written, the only thing that bothered me is how the art of each story changes. Some of the stories, I loved the artwork for and a few others left me perturbed. In the first volume she runs into a few celeb slashers that I geeked about such as Evil Ernie and the ever cocky Chucky himself. The sheer size of these volumes made it well worth the $30 retail price no problem.
Overall rating 4/5 Full Moons
