Tim Seeley, writer of Hack/Slash, announced at the Image Comics panel on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 that he is shepherding a crossover book with the film Hatchet based in his universe, to be released in November.
It turns out that Seeley is good friends with the director of Hatchet, Adam Green and the two of them decided that it makes sense that the two worlds cross in comic book form. It does make sense that Cassie, the heroine of Hack/Slash who travels from town to town killing monsters and serial killers, takes on Victor Crowley the retro serial killer featured in Hatchet. The one-shot releases on November and Seeley believes that this particular issue will indeed not be nominated for an Eisner award.
The basic set up for Hack/Slash is that Cassie and her giant disfigured friend take revenge on the monsters and serial killers of the world known as “slashers” by well, killing them. Hatchet is a low budget slasher film in the style of 80’s classics such as Friday the 13th. Victor Crowley kills people that get lost in the Louisiana swamps. So as you can see it was only a matter of time before Cassie had to travel to Louisiana and take care of business. Seeley also quipped that he has no budget restrictions so we can expect plenty of creative violence.
