Hack/Slash Heading to Image Comics!Goon
Just recently I began to finally start reading Hack/Slash and it is a remarkable book but it was obviously held down by Devils Due Publishing. They had a very bad habit of pushing the book back by several weeks and you never knew when the next issue was going to come out. Well worry no longer.
Comic Related is reporting from the Emerald City Comic-Con that Tim Seeley has made the announcement that he is taking his little book to Image Comics. Image is one of the largest creator owned comic publishing companies around which means we are finally going to be getting are Hack/Slash fix on schedule.
"My little creator owned book is making the move to the biggest creator owned comic company!" exclaimed Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley. "The move is sanctioned by Devil's Due Publishing, and Josh Blaylock has been helping me with the transition. June will see the release of the first issue of HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC, which is set in Cassie's past and is the perfect tale for new readers as well as those who've been following the book for several years. And, best of all, my crack creative team of artist Dan Leister, colorist Mark Englert, editor Jim Lowder and letterer Crank! are coming with me to Image-Land."
Details and cover art for the first issue have also already been released. Check those out below:
