Horror writer Tim Seeley, the creator of Hack/Slash, will pit his character Carrie Hack against James O’Barr’s creation The Crow in a new crossover announced by IDW Publishing. The new series will feature an all-new Crow in a story of murder and revenge, after a resurrected soul becomes an insatiable revenge killer. Seeley will illustrate the comic, and Jim Terry, who was the artist for The Crow: Skinning the Wolves, will ink.
Hack/Slash follows the adventures of Hack as she dispenses violent justice to slashers who target innocent victims, while The Crow features a man who is resurrected from the dead after he and his girlfriend are assaulted by a gang of thugs. The Crow was originally published by Caliber Comics in the late 1980s, and the most recent series was published by IDW Publishing (see "IDW’s ‘The Crow’ Flies in July"). Seeley launched Hack/Slash in 2004 with Devil’s Due, and the most recent story, Hack/Slash: Resurrection, was published by Image Comics (see "Tim Seeley’s ‘Hack/Slash’ Returns"). And the Hack/Slash vs. CHAOS! miniseries is currently being published by Dynamite Entertainment.
