4.0 out of 5 stars the time of the slashers

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh
Hack/slash was one I had heard about a while back, decided to check it out. It's not terrible but it falls pretty short of average. I expected something similar to Buffy the vampire slayer with similar witty dialogue but was left with a pretty bland and repetitive book instead. Every story follows the same pattern of people get killed/heroes hunt killer/reveal of killer/...

4.0 out of 5 stars the time of the slashers, 31 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hack/Slash - Vol. 1 - First Cut (Graphic Novel) (Kindle Edition)
Cassie Hack grew up in western Wisconsin, daughter of an eccentric dinner lady. Her mother watched as Cassie was bullied through school until she could take no more, students started to disappear and were amusingly served up with salad and fries. When confronted mother Hack committed suicide by plunging her head into a boiling pot of gravy leaving Cassie an orphan.
In a new school Cassie is bullied again and students start to disappear, her mother has returned as a vengeful slasher from the grave.
Cassie hunts down and kills her mother and finding it impossible to settle into anything approaching a normal life she becomes a hunter of killers. Joined by her sidekick Vlad who she meets along the way, a gentle giant with the biggest knife you've ever seen and the perfect foil for Cassie.
Together they scour the newspapers for brutal unsolved killings and slashers aplenty to hunt and kill.
Enjoyed this some cracking characters, plenty of blood and gore, a few humourous moments and two cool antiheroes, always have been a sucka for the rock/goth characters such as Cassie who has no time for love but plenty of time for killing slashers.
If you like the slasher movies from the 80's Halloween, Nightmare on Elm street, Friday 13th and Childs Play this pays worthy homage to the genre and doesn't take itself too seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical comic, 18 Feb 2013

This review is from: Hack/Slash - Vol. 1 - First Cut (Graphic Novel) (Kindle Edition)
If you like that's not your usual superhero or t+a comic then this is defiantly for you.

The artwork is brilliant, the storyline is a bit straight forward but works well with Caddie and Vlad and in my humble opinion, makes you want to read more

Defiantly for people that are lovers or horror movies and comic books alike

Hack/slash was one I had heard about a while back, decided to check it out. It's not terrible but it falls pretty short of average. I expected something similar to Buffy the vampire slayer with similar witty dialogue but was left with a pretty bland and repetitive book instead. Every story follows the same pattern of people get killed/heroes hunt killer/reveal of killer/ heroes end up in peril but escape/ slight tease of boobs at some point/ final confrontation/ the end.
Not impressed.
