IDW Publishing released the debut issue of its new horror comic crossover series The Crow: Hack/Slash issue #1. The series features Hack/Slash main character “Cassie Hack” going after The Crow. The comic is written & illustrated by Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley with inks by Jim Terry. The issue features cover art by Seeley, with variant covers by Seeley & Rebekah A. Isaacs.
Seeley said: “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. It introduced me to the idea that comics could tell dark and personal stories full of pain and beauty. No doubt about it – without O’Barr’s original The Crow, there would never have been a Hack/Slash. Mixing Cassie, Vlad, and The Crow has been in the making for 25 years, and my buddy Jim Terry and I cannot wait to unleash it on the world.”
Terry added: “O’Barr’s The Crow was a turning point for me – his book brought me to indie comics and blew the doors off what I thought a comic could be. Years later, I’d become friends with James and eventually work on The Crow: Skinning the Wolves. It was my first published work and still among the best things I’ve done, and now I get to work in this universe again with my pal Tim Seeley. He’s a clever writer and a gifted storyteller, so I’m excited to take this ride and push some artistic limits!”
The Crow: Hack/Slash issue #1 is now available in both print & digital for just $3.99:
