Image Comics releases a big collaboration celebrating its 15th anniversary of a special comic book issue of Hack/Slash.

Well, there’s one thing for sure when it comes to collaborations from every comic that I’ve read, it’s more complex because just like Super Smash Bros., everyone is there, and one thing that I got very disappointed is that I don’t see Spawn everywhere on the first following pages. Whatever, anyway, this is a special story to Hack Slash, a tale of a lone surviving slasher victim and her quest to slaughter the undead serial killers along the way, and now it produced everything in this special issue. It was originally created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, this comic is a series of short stories created by some various writers and artists who admired this series. However, there are some ups and downs between this special issue.

The cover shows a herd of Image heroes including the protagonist of Hack Slash, and like I said it’s very disappointing that Image didn’t include Spawn in this comic. The whole background is covered in blood as the characters are out for blood at the very least. The story follows in some convention in Chicago which is very self-explanatory to have a comic with all your Image characters on there. However, Image produced so many crossovers by mentioning the Hack/Slash series which has so many collaborations that Tim Seeley had thought of. But the problem is that from every fan goes apeshit asking him about the release date of Hack/Slash movie as if someone is jabbering about Kingdom Hearts 3 or Final Fantasy 7 remake release dates. I mean come on, where’s this coming from? But anyway this anniversary version of this comic is actually one of the biggest collaborations that ever gets to tell the story from fiction to real life.

The thing about the Hack/Slash series is that none of the heroes can be that violent because from what I’ve read the comics from Image is actually an adult content to have more violence and gore. Hack/Slash shows a twisted plot point between the protagonist and the creator. As if the creator has so many things to do, he hasn’t had the time to create a movie. The character designs are great, even so making Tim Seeley illustrated is something in common, because what if the characters from Hack/Slash came out from the comic world to the real world? Well anyway, the anniversary version of this comic is a must-buy for the fans and for the collection too.
