For those of you who aren’t up to date on the goings on between ex-Devil’s Due writer Tim Seeley (“HACK/SLASH”) then you can get yourself caught up on all that here, and then you can click on beyond the break and take a look at some new interior artwork for his first arc from new publisher Image with “MY FIRST MANIAC”. Read on for the skinny. “The focus of the series is on a horror victim, Cassie, who strikes back at the monsters, known as “slashers”, with Vlad, a disfigured “gentle giant” who frequently wears a gas mask.”
“HACK/SLASH: MY FIRST MANIAC explores Cassie’s first case. 16-year-old Cassie Hack has just been forced to kill her mother, the undead murderer known as the Lunch Lady. Now faced with overwhelming guilt, she must decide if she can make a life with her foster parents or use her new-found slasher killing skills to save other screaming teenagers. But does the apple fall far from the tree? A perfect jumping-on point for new readers and a previously untold tale for old fans!”
The title will go on sale June 9th with a list price of $3.50 as well as a reprintings of the “HACK/SLASH OMNIBUS VOLUME #1″, and “HACK/SLASH, VOL. 3: FRIDAY THE 31ST”.
For Seeley fans, Newsarama did a great interview with with the scribe about his separation from Devil’s Due, and it is a pretty insightful piece that shines a lot of light on the move.
