Posted on December 19, 2014 at 11:00 am by Tyler Waterman

Nailbiter tells the tale of the ultimate serial killer; Hack/Slash introduced us to the ultimate serial killer hunter. A conflict between the two is just comic common sense, and Image hasn’t missed the memo. Introducing Nailbiter/Hack/Slash, a oneshot that doesn’t just have the most forward slashes in the title, but also promises to be a hellacious crossover!

Take a look at the cover below, as well as the official announcement, and get ready for lots and lots of killing when the crossover hits shelves March 4th.

Two hit series come together in the ultimate serial killer standoff

Bestselling writers Joshua Williamson (BIRTHRIGHT, NAILBITER) and Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH) team up with artists Mike Henderson (NAILBITER) and Emilio Laiso (HACK/SLASH) for a crossover one-shot event of killer proportions—NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH—coming to Image Comics on March 4, 2015.

“Josh and I share a fascination with B-movie horror and serial killer culture,” said Seeley. “As soon as I read Nailbiter I knew our worlds were gonna collide.”

Williamson added: “Hack/Slash has been one of my favorite books for a long time, and once we started running with Nailbiter, I knew we were playing with some of the same tropes and twisting them. Cassie and The Nailbiter HAD to meet. Doing this flip book with Tim has been a blast. One of the scariest and most messed up scenes we’ve done in Nailbiter takes place here. Whenever I tell people about it, I can see their skin crawl.”

In NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH, the infamous serial killers of Buckaroo, Oregon meet the ultimate serial killer hunter, Cassie Hack… let the blood-bath begin. In this one-shot it’s Cassie Hack vs. the Nailbiter! Vlad vs. the Lucha Eliminador! IT’S ON!

NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH features two brand new tales of terror by the creative teams of the Image hits NAILBITER and HACK/SLASH, and Tim Seeley makes his grand return to the character he created to give you a nasty blast from the past. If you’ve ever needed an excuse to read these two horrific comics, now is your chance!

NAILBITER/HACK/SLASH (Diamond Code JAN150593) one-shot clocks in at 40 pages and hits shelves on March 4.
