Bloody good and emotional time.

World: The art is mostly good. It's consistent in tone but not so much in the quality, some series are better than others. The world building is great, not only is there an overarching story and cameos and self contained little stories the emotions and the development of Cassie and Vlad are so important to this world, add to that the inclusion of Georgie, and Hack/Slash Inc it's a bigger and consistent world.

Story: A bloody good time. The cameos were fun and we'r

Another great collection of stories.

Oh, you need more?

Well, most of my early statements about Hack/Slash from my volume one review remain true. The premise is great with poor Cassie Hack attempting to track down and kill as many undead slashers as humanly possible.

The series premise that sufficiently evil serial killers rise from the dead to become zombie murderers simultaneously is explored further and is set aside frequently enough that it never becomes tiresome. In this volume, Cassie Hac

After reading and loving Hack/Slash Omnibus Volume 1, I decided I might as well purchase Hack/Slash Omnibus Volume 2. It was definitely worth my money. I’ve heard that many comics struggle to keep audience attention after their first release. One theory is that perhaps since the second release is, many times, no longer an “origin story”, writers begin to lose the sense of plot, and thus character development suffers as well. This is not the case for Hack/Slash.

The plot had alot of twists and turns. I really liked how each issues has a different art style. Some of the main storyline was progrossed. The main characters, and the side characters are all interesting, and fun to read about. The art is really great, and detailed. I loved the humor in each story. Overall, an excellent comic so far :)

This is on its way to becoming one of my favorite comics, I was brought in by the different art styles and cameos by known horror stars, but in this book you really get to know the characters better, and I really enjoyed that. Plus one of the people I follow on deviantart did the cover picture.

Cassie and Vlad are at it again. While the first volume seemed very choppy, it was essentially getting various plot points and characters involved. Now that, that is all done we are discovering more about the world. Such as government conspiracies, experiments and cover ups, and more about Cassie and her search for her father. This continues to be a solid comic for me and Vlad and Cassie are such a fun dynamic to read.

Another great Omnibus. Cassie and Vlad are highly likable duo. This omnibus is also packed with crossovers this time I mention suicide girls and Re-animator. Hack/Slash has very quickly become my favorite easy read.

Although it doesn't offer much more than what was in the first volume, Hack/Slash is still an enjoyable read. The relationship between Cassie and Vlad continues to be the book's strongest selling point (aside from sex, of course), and the introduction of a potential third wheel in the form of Georgia is handled quite well. By keeping her separate from Cassie and Vlad, the comic manages to turn her into a constant undercurrent of tension between the two without having to force the issue.

I finished the first volume within a day so I figured hey, why not check out the next one? I'm rather glad I did since the storytelling does improve with this volume. (OK, so I admit that the cover art drew me in as well.)

The storytelling has improved with this volume, as do the cameos by both actual people and familiar horror icons. We get a glimpse at some Suicide Girls in this volume and while it does serve to be more of a vehicle for SG during that chapter, it was still pretty decent. (Somet

This is second comic that back into comics. It reads like a damn good tongue-in- cheek genre tv show. It collects Hack/Slash at the time when creator Tim Seeley make his story about Cassie and Vlad an on going series. Cassie is that last girl, that survivor in one of those cheesy and exploitive slasher films. The one's we all say we don't but love. The artwork by Emily Stone is some of the best in the series entire 7 year run and catapulted Tim Seeley to the top of the Post Walking Dead indie sc ...more

With all the early limited series collected in Omnibus Vol. 1, the story gets a more developed with the beginning of the on-going series. My only, but major, complaint is the inconsistency of the artwork. Ranging from superb to abysmal (sorry, maybe it was the printing process?), I only kept reading b/c the story really is worth it. That and Cassie & Vlad make for the best "buddy comedy", even though this is a gore-tastic horror comic book. Is it worth checking out? Definitely! Once the titl ...more

If an 15-18 year old kid wrote this book, I think it'd be genius ... there's still a lot of things that Seeley seems hung up, but I DO think the mythos he's building within his arcs, the underlying subplot of revnants and whatnot, is pretty neat ... enough to keep me checking them out from the library.

I did think the issue about the feral children was really good, as I believe this omnibus is a more solid effort over it's predecessor. I agree with another reviewer in that there is at least some

Awesome! This second round of issues completely nailed everything that was missing from the first. It had the heart, the depth of character, the over-arching story...I almost wish I could've started reading the series with "Gross Anatomy," but I'm glad I had the groundwork that was laid in Volume 1. I love what's happening with Georgia and Cassie and the way the cast is slowly expanding. (view spoiler) I ...more

so this series is super silly, in the best way possible. imagine the show supernatural, but replace dean with a bisexual buffy and sam with a frankenstein-esque monster. sounds awesome, right? totally is. the whole "busty babe" thing can get obnoxious at times--there's an entire extra-length issue featuring the suicide girls--but for the most part it really works. cassie hack is a great character, with much more depth than you'd think.

This was actually pretty good, as I expected the series gets much better once it has one continuous story instead of a bunch of one-shots (as in the first omnibus). Still fanservicey and juvenile, but in a fun light-hearted way. Love some of the arcs we can see develop through the otherwise rather pulpy stories. Loved Nef and Cassie trying to find her father was really interesting. Would love to see her up against a serious monster instead of a bunch of ridiculous characters.

This is one of those books that subverts expectations.

I didn't even realize I had expectations.

I just opened it up and started reading, and after the first issue said, "Damn, I was not expecting those feels."

Internet slang aside, Hack/Slash is full of enormous heart, wit, gore, sex, and more than a splash of friendship. I can't wait to read the next volume, one of my best blind purchases I've made.

This volume collects the first 14 issues of the ongoing series. Although it is mindless campy humor at the best of times, it was still entertaining to read in a juvenile sense. If you are looking for some mindless fluff to pass the time with, and like decent sex jokes mixed with crude violence and shout-outs to classic horror films and comics, then this will probably be right up your alley.

Volume 2 collects the first 17 issues of the continuing series plus the annual. With an ongoing thread it really picks up steam, introducing Cassie's very own Scooby gang, a wealth of new Revenants and some awesome visuals.

A wild ride that slashes through the horror comic genura. Cassie Hack, a punk rock girl who is the daughter of a slasher killer, and her best buddy/partner/bodyguard Vlad, go hunting slashers in the vain of horror movies. I loved every second of the blood soaked and yet tongue-and-cheek insanity!

Cassie an Vlad deal with, among other things, Oz and even the Re-animator. I love the Neflord English speaking canine creature who has adopted Cassie's friends Lisa and Chris. Another great omnibus collection. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately I am reading these out of order due to availability issues at my library. But, that being said I am really digging this series. It's fun gorey action full of dark humour and pop culture references. And lesbians. If that doesn't get you interested, I don't know what will.

Good trashy B horror movie fun. One change from Volume 1 is immediately evident: the series has a more consistent look due to Emily Stone penciling most of it. The sex and violence are both toned down a bit for the ongoing as well.

More good! I really like the recurring villains and the character development of Cassie and Vlad. Cassie has to face her past and some things about her identity that she hasn't quite dealt with before. It's also great to see a realistically evolving friendship. Plus, Vlad just rocks.
