Tim Seeley continues his take on zombies this week with issue #2 of Revival. What makes Seeley’s undead so different? They think, act, and feel just like us. They return from the dead and attempt to go back to their daily lives, but underneath it all, they’re skin-hungry monsters. Check it below. READ MORE
“Hack/Slash” scribe, Tim Seeley has a new zombie story, titled Revival coming out from Image Comics, and it lands on July 11. However, Seeley’s dead-heads are not mindless and bloodthirsty, they are simply revived corpses who attempt to return to their normal lives. Seeley says, “Revival is … rooted in psychological horror — the fear of what happens to us when we die, the fear of not being sure if we can trust those closest to us”. Check out the official press details after the break. READ MORE
With Image’s July solicits came news of a bunch of great looking horror comics. Among those is Tim Seeley’s newest horror venture, Revival, and you guessed it, it’s about zombies. But unlike most undead tales these days, Seeley is focusing on aspects of the media, religion, and politics that would surround such a devastating event. Somewhere in the mess of it all is Officer Cypress who is on the case of a bloody murder. You may be sick to death of zombies by now, but if we know Seeley, we know he’s not just jumping on the bandwagon. Chances are he’s got something good to say.
Every single one of you should know Tim Seeley for his incredible tongue in cheek series “Hack/Slash”. Announced today at C2E2, Seeley has a brand new vampire series coming out titled Ex Sanguine, but there’s one catch. You have to wait until next November to get your filthy paws on a copy. Seeley will be exploring themes vampire love. If you’re thinking it will be the same vampire drama as you see on True Blood, shame on you, you should know better. Seeley promises a brutal, bloody, and savage book that bring together a blood sucker and a serial killer. More details after you take the jump. READ MORE
I think it’s safe to say by now that everyone here loves Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash. While this arc may be slightly more ridiculous in concept, it only proves how awesome this book is. Where else would you find a creature that’s half snake, half ape fighting against the babe of all babes? Check out the sultry 9-page preview below. Read on for the skinny…
Hack/Slash has seen more directors than I really care to name, and today The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marcus Nispel is the latest name attached to direct the comic to film adaptation. On top of Conan, Nipsel has directed other questionable films such as the recent remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th. Now this is likely to piss off some fans, so feel free to rant off in the comments.
Hack/Slash is one of those titles that everyone should be reading. It’s sexy, violent, funny, and a great commentary on all kinds of horror films. Hack/Slash brings to life all your wildest fantasies, from killing pop culture icons to watching a scantly clad heroine kick some ass. Check out this, shall we say, “riskay” preview after the jump.
You can’t keep a good monster hunter down, especially when she carries the sass and swagger of Tim Seeley’s Cassandra Hack. Partner that with the brash and equally sassy Bomb Queen, and you have yourselves a recipe for nothing but sheer awesomeness. For further proof of this you can check out the following 6 page preview.

One of the trademarks of Tim Seeley’s ubber popular “HACK/SLASH” has always been the fact that the monthly will often implement the help of some of horror’s favorite icons.

Below you can check out all the killer deets and get your first look art the cover art…

Ladies and gentlemen, gather round, because at long last Halo-8, Tim Seeley, and the rest of the crew behind the “HACK/SLASH” animated comic have officially announced the lucky lady who will be voicing the series. Now remember that this part has been pretty coveted within the industry, with the likes of Meghan Fox expressing interest in the part for the live action version. Halo-8 founder Matt Pizzolo had this to say about the role…
“Cassie is a great role and there are a lot of established actresses who’d love to bring her to life. We feel really blessed by the actress we’ve selected to take on the role – not only is she a fan-favorite but she herself is a fan of Tim, Cassie, and Vlad. With Hack/Slash, we’re working more with green screen and roto-style animation, so this actress will literally be taking on Cassie’s skin.”
With all that being said, we are VERY proud to announce that the lovely scribe behind “WE WILL BURY YOU”, “SUICIDE GIRLS”, Brea Grant will be giving the horror icon her voice for the series!
It hasn’t been a bad year for Grant, as this is the second big casting announcement for the actress, who earlier this year confirmed that she would be taking on a regular role in Showtime’s “DEXTER”. Most horror fans know Brea for her work in Rob Zombie’s second “HALLOWEEN” film, as well as the underground hit “MIDNIGHT MOVIE”. Unfortunately, up until now we have not gotten to see enough of the actress in a central light, but thankfully that is all changing. If you ask us it is about time! READ MORE

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE…
WITCHBLADE BEGINS A NEW CHAPTER
Tim Seeley and Diego Bernard Are Witchblade’s New Creative Team
“Berkeley, CA – 18 July 2011 – Sara Pezzini has been through a lot in the past six years. She’s had a child, maintained her police career while juggling her duties as Witchblade, lost and gained back the mystical gauntlet, hunted down those who kidnapped her daughter, and even discovered the inner-workings of the universe. Her life has been eventful. However, nothing has prepared her for what’s coming next!
Hot off the Top Cow universe-altering events of ARTIFACTS #13 and WITCHBLADE #150, WITCHBLADE #151 begins a new chapter in the story of Pezzini. The passionate new creative team will provide an ideal jumping on point for new readers.
These changes all start with Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH) and Diego Bernard (The Man With No Name). Seeley and Bernard mark the first completely new creative team in over six years following the landmark run by Ron Marz and his co-collaborator Stjepan Sejic. Seeley will be using the Marz-era as a springboard from which to tell stories of Sara’s new life and build on the rich Top Cow history and continuity while bringing a new voice and putting her through new challenges.
“Over the years, I’ve developed a rep as a guy who likes to write women who kick ass, and look great doing it,” said Seeley. “I’m over-the-moon at getting the opportunity to follow up one of the most beloved creative teams in comic history, on one of the most enduring heroines ever!”
To celebrate this new chapter, Top Cow is lowering the regular cover price of Witchblade to $2.99 and offering two covers by John Tyler Christopher (ARTIFACTS) and Dennis Calero (X-Men: Noir), as well as a special retailer incentive cover by the legendary J. Scott Campbell.”
“WITCHBLADE #151″ a 32-page full color comic book, is available for order in the August issue of Previews.” READ MORE

One of the things that makes Tim Seeley and Daniel Leister’s “HACK/SLASH” so endearing is the fact that it is always conscious of the events of the real world, and isn’t afraid to take a ‘stab’ at them in the way only Seeley and Leister can. (You thought we were going to say boobs, didn’t you? Perverts.) The perfect example of this is the newly released advance cover artwork for some of the upcoming issues of the monthly from Image Comics, one of which featuring the loose likenesses of the “JERSEY SHORE” cast. Below you can check out the covers and see for yourself.
