Hack/Slash has become a bit of an obsession of mine. Take a snarkier version of Buffy, add a monstrous sidekick with a child's mind, turn them loose in the world of classic slasher films, and add all of the great characters, humor, sex, and violence a horror geek could ask for. You now have this comic. You may give thanks and praises now.

Cassie Hack is instantly among my favorite heroines and over the course of this series becomes one of the better-developed characters in comicdom, which is outstanding considering she's only been with us for five years or so. Being the daughter of an overprotective single mother-turned-slasher, Cassie decides she has nothing to lose and after offing her own mom she takes up hunting the Freddys and Jasons of the world armed only with a baseball bat and a bad attitude. After mistaking a gentle giant/ex-butcher's apprentice Vlad, for a slasher, she finds an ally and Hack/Slash is born. The series has one of the best rogue's galleries out there, and this volume ends with an epic crossover that flips the classic team-up on it's head by having Cassie partner (temporarily) with the legendary slasher Chucky. Yes. THAT Chucky. Two of the best trash-talkers in horror going head-to-head is something to read, man. Also of note is a special "Trailers" issue made up of horror parody trailers starring Cassie and Vlad.

Hack/Slash is simply among the most enjoyable reads out there. Buffy comparisons are inevitable and well-earned. Horror fans will find this to be delightfully violent, gory, and profane, along with being one of the sexier series out there. Not a whole lot not to love. Occasionally inconsistent art (due to rotating artists) is pretty much the only complaint, and it is a very small one.

There is not enough that i can say about this book. Hack/slash has a place in my heart i normally only reserve for chocolate and comfort foods. I found it amazing that the caracters really have a lot of depth to them, and you get pleasantly attached. Not to mention the plot line is always fierce and never lets you down. it always starts at adrenaline-filled action and suspense...and you get pretty funny jokes just about everywhere a long the way.
The artists are awesome, they give Cassie such expression and such unique looks its absolutely genius.
.... and i loved the storyline with Evil Eddie...it was very philosphical...so that rocked my world. Theres nothing better than a powerful anti-heroine type...they take on the roll but dont exactly have super powers...and they have a past just like you full of tough times fitting in at school ...or your mom being a zombie lunchlady that poisons kids and kills them...its all very relatable haha

And its pretty long so you definitely feel very satisfied by the end of it. The only thing i didnt like was that i really wish that who ever drew and colored the first story that the book starts off with had done the entire book. The other artists are okay but i really loved whomever the book started off with.

I came back to comics after quite a few years away, decided to try this out because of the glowing reviews here on Amazon. I enjoy horror comics and figured, at the very least, it should be entertaining if the reviews were even half correct. Well, they are completely on the money and I am thankful the reviewers took the time to help turn me onto this incredible story. As they have already so eloquently stated, this is more than just a horror comic, it's exciting, funny and the characters are quick to become a staple in your reading and entertainment life.

I will review the product, as other reviewers have done such a great job going over the story. First, publishers take note, this is what an Omnibus is meant to be! Check out the page count and you can see this is a big book and an excellent starting point. This is what you're getting:

Hack/Slash: Euthanized
Hack/Slash: Girls Gone Dead
Hack/Slash: Comic Book Carnage
Hack/Slash Vs. Evil Ernie
Hack/Slash: The Land of Lost Toys #1-3
Hack/Slash: Trailers
Hack/Slash: Slashing Through the Snow (previously unpublished)
Hack/Slash: Slice Hard Prequel
Hack/Slash: Slice Hard
Hack/Slash Vs. Chucky

And those are just the stories! There's more! (Let me just add by the time I finished Girls Gone Dead, I was in love with this and ordered Omnibus 2) This is laugh out loud pure joy comicdom.

Here are the extras, and finally (again publishers reading? take note!) they are actually EXTRAS and not just a few pages tacked on at the end:

Alternate covers (this is a staple extra) but here it is more than just two pages, I sat and looked over these and loved them.

I was curious about Hack/Slash and bought this omnibus to check it out. The concept has some shades of Buffy, but Cassie Hack is such an endearing and attractive character. This is the most interesting series I have come across in a long time since outgrowing Marvel titles like Iron Man and X-Men.

The artwork is hit and miss, in my opinion. With the different artists working on each story it is somewhat inevitable, I guess. As a result, there isn't a distinctive look, and you might not like it as a result if you're that sort of reader. Otherwise, I've found a new favourite, and you might as well.

The characters are quite good, with the slashers being sick SOBs that you'd love to see being butchered. I'd have given it 5 stars if not for the cartoonish artwork in the middle of the book.
