Posted on December 14, 2014 at 8:30 am by Tyler Waterman

Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash series is undoubtedly a cult classic, and this January, Image releases the first collection of the latest story arc, Son of Samhain. This isn’t just good news for longtime fans of the series, however, as Image promises this also serves as an excellent jump-on point for new readers as well.

Take a look at the preview below and see for yourself, and if you dig it, the trade goes on sale January 27th.

Collection of new story arc for a horror favorite out in January


After Cassie Hack was the lone survivor of the killing spree of a slasher nicknamed “The Lunch Lady” — who was also Cassie’s mother — she committed her life to hunting down killers and supernatural evil. She thought she left that life behind, but in HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN, she’s drawn back into the slasher-fighting life when a cult of monsters plot to unleash an ancient evil on the world. With the help of a new partner, Cassie must confront a darkness like she’s never encountered before — and the darkness in her own life.

Created by Tim Seeley, the popular HACK/SLASH series debuted in 2004. The newest chapter of Cassie’s life, SON OF SAMHAIN, written by Michael Moreci (ROCHE LIMIT, HOAX HUNTERS) and Steve Seeley (HOAX HUNTERS) and drawn by Emilio Laiso (3 Guns), will appeal to long-time fans as well as readers just jumping on the series.

“We pick up a few years after the final arc of Tim’s series,” Moreci explained in an interview at Comic Book Resources. “A lot has changed for Cassie, and we’re going to see her in a whole new way. She’s older here, more mature, and her life is shaded by everything she went through and what’s happened to her in the intervening years.”

HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN Volume 1 will be in comic book stores on January 14 and in bookstores on January 27. It is available for pre-order now.
