12.29.2010: Bloody Best Way To Kick Off The New Year!

Signing at TFAW with Tim Seeley of Hack/Slash

Kick off 2011 with a killer signing with Tim Seeley, Scott Allie & Shane White at the Hollywood Things From Another World on January 4th.

Keep in mind that the comic that I am helping promote isn’t a kids’ title (which should be pretty obvious in a couple of sentences). So once of my favorite comic books is called Hack/Slash. When I was looking to get back into reading comics a few years ago, all I had in my library (aside from my personal comics from the early nineties) was Hellboy. So a friend of mine was suggesting a few titles and one of them was calledHack/Slash.

Hack/Slash is all about a young girl named Cassie Hack who survives a bloody slash epidemic in her town – and the slasher just happened to be her mother. She decides that her destiny is to rid the world of slashers. She hooks up with a massive dude named Vlad and the title follows them as they drive from town to town and track down these bloody killers who are returning from the grave and terrorizing the locals. It’s a bloody, hot, violent adventure so reminiscent of the slasher films that Seeley has actually had the doll of doom, Chucky, in one of the story arcs. Anyway, it’s one of my favorite titles and great news is that Things From Another World is hosting a signing next week with the magnanimous Tim Seeley at their location across the street from the Hollywood Theatre on January 4th, 2011. There will be free beer too (and as long as you are over 21 and bring your ID)!

Here are the details for the event from TFAW’s blog posting:


We’re kicking off the New Year with a BASH you won’t forget–a signing with Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley (The OccultistAnt-Man & Wasp). He’ll be joined by two of his Hack/Slash Trailers Part 2 contributors, Scott Allie (Buffy Season 8Solomon Kane) and Shane White (Fractured Fables,One Month to Live) Tuesday, January 4 at the Hollywood Things From Another World location at 4133 NE Sandy Blvd. from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Seeley created the cult-hit Hack/Slash series, now at Image Comics, which centers on the dynamic duo of Cassie Hack and Vlad, who hunt down “slashers”–those undead psycho killers who typically plague summer camps and lusty teenagers. He also wrote Dark Horse Comics’The Occultist, based on a story by Dark Horse President Mike Richardson. Seeley is also currently writing and providing pencils for Marvel Comics’Ant Man & Wasp miniseries.

To pay his artists for past work, Seeley recently put together theHack/Slash Trailers Part 2 one-shot–an anthology featuring 13 short stories, including one from Dark Horse Comics Senior Managing Editor and writer Scott Allie, and another from Seattle-based writer/artist extraordinaire Shane White.

“We couldn’t be happier to start the year 2011 with such an amazing signing,” said Things From Another World Senior Director of Retail Operations Andrew McIntire. “Not only are these guys phenomenally talented, but they’re a lot of fun to hang out with.”

Besides the excellent company, this signing will feature free food from Clean Plate Catering and complimentary beer with valid ID (no exceptions). See you there for a fantastic start to the New Year–RSVP at the Facebook event!
