You may recall Hoax Hunters from the back pages of Hack/Slash this past year, but now it’s spun off into it’s own series. Written by Michael Moreci and Steve Seeley (yes, Tim Seeley’s brother), with J.M. Ringuet on art duties, Hoax Hunters is a zany cross somewhere between The X-Files and B.P.R.D..

Hoax Hunters #0 is due out in March and below you can check out the 5-page preview. Read on for the skinny…
