The Crow Hack/Slash Crossover Event


Find Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 comics at TFAW.com!

Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley brings his “Final Girl” Cassie Hack to IDW in The Crow: Hack/Slash, a comic book crossover debuting in June. Illustrated by Tim Seeley with inks by returning Crow artist Jim Terry, this four-issue mini series sees fan-favorite Cassie Hack on the trail of an all-new Crow… one unlike any that fans have seen before!

Synopsis:
In The Crow: Hack/Slash #1, a soul is brought back, but something is terribly wrong! The newly resurrected Angeles Cero won't stop killing on a quest for revenge, and the bodies are piling up. Now, slasher hunter Cassie Hack and her monstrous partner Vlad are on the trail of the Crow Killer, wrongly believing themselves in pursuit of a masked murderer they’ve hunted for years.


"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." -Tim Seeley

I'm sure for fans of Hack/Slash this is an anticipated crossover or at least one they'd hope to see. While I feel The Crow is more of a noir/sci-fi comic it can fit into Cassie Hack's world of horror and gore. It will be interesting to see how the 2 characters interact with each other and if they will team up like in most crossover events or stay at odds with each other. Which is always the case in these type of events. I guess the bigger question is will this story make an impression on the larger comic book community or stay within their main fan bases? 


“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!”  -Jim Terry

Issue #1 will feature a regular cover by Tim Seeley, with a variant edition by Rebekah A. Isaacs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and a special “inked” variant by Seeley.
