    Tim Seeley crafts another exciting chapter in the adventure of Cassie Hack. The Crow: Hack/Slash #1 promises plenty of action for our favorite monster hunter, while also challenging Cassie's character. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 13, 2019

    The Crow: Hack / Slash is a crossover that just makes sense. Of course these two franchises would cross paths. There's some nice overlap, especially in the goth scene. If I could go back in time and tell myself in 8th grade about this comic, it would knock me right out of my JNCOs. Fortunately, this book is much more than a dark tale. There's a story of vengeance wrapped in good old-fashioned supernatural ass-kicking. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Jun 27, 2019

    Though perhaps not as comedic and callback-heavy as "Hack/Slash vs. Chaos!" #1, "The Crow: Hack/Slash" #1 shows that this creative team is an excellent fit for the horror crossover. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manuel Gomez Jun 25, 2019

    'Hack/Slash' crossovers have always been a fun read, but this one is out of the grave starting to feel just a little bit different. 'The Crow' angle brings in a new vibe and some unique nostalgia. If you are a fan of either property, pick this book up at your local comic book shop. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jun 25, 2019

    That being said, there was a lot I enjoyed about this issue, even though I am totally confused about what Vlad is and what a “slasher” is. I did find Cassie and Vlad compelling characters. The dialogue is fantastic and I did find the characters and plot very interesting. I also really like the brighter coloring work and was surprised about how well it fits the story. It also has a great cliffhanger ending that has me on board for the next issue. I am very interested to see what Seeley does now that the story is really ready to get going! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 26, 2019

    From this review, you may feel that I am not a fan of either of these set of characters. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have a lot of time for the original Crow series, with Hack/Slash in their various team-ups bringing an odd sense of fun. Here then is the problem; I am not sure that the two properties actually suit one another. Its not like Vampirella & Hack/Slash, where both have their tongue-in-cheek elements. This then makes this book an odd disjointed type of affair. Read Full Review
