    Fans of Hack/Slash will be pleased at the return of their favorite sexy, foul-mouthed, darkly philosophical slayer with tons of gore and blood in tow. Newcomers to the series should not be scared off too much from reading this issue since Tini Howard does a great job of providing substantial amounts of backstory. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Ruben Gonzalez Nov 11, 2017

    Overall I really liked Hack/Slash Resurrection #1. Cassie Hack is strong character that can carry the book. The pacing and story telling is great. The action looks like it's going to deliver the gore I was hoping for. And I really don't know what to expect next, which is good thing. Read Full Review

    Hack/Slash Resurrection brings your favorite final-girl-turned-monster-hunter back to the pages of Image Comics with the return of Cassie's sass and, of course, her baseball bat in a book, proving that no matter how hard Cassie tries, she will never be able to escape her past. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Connor Stephens Oct 24, 2017

    Hack/Slash Resurrection #1 is however, a purely setup issue. New motives and villains make themselves known, but with little action and a cliff-hanger ending, this issue shows that the story really begins next issue. Issue #1 may feel like an issue #0 and leave long-time fans a little unsatisfied, but the incredible work of Howard, Celor and Russel in this issue, alongside the faith Seeley has in this project, will make sure youll want to be here for when this story real kicks off next issue.

    Hack/Slash: Resurrection #1 is the kind of opening issue that will appeal to current fans, whilst being fresh and inviting to new readers. Quietly re-introducing us to Cassie Hack and who she is, the creative team do an excellent job of showing us what the former slasher hunter gets up to nowadays. During this they lay the groundwork for what's to come, with there being some intriguing possibilities for the not too distant future. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Nov 10, 2017

    While undercut by over-the-top costume decisions, HACK/SLASH RESURRECTION #1 is filled with brilliant comedy, satire, and characterization. Not for every reader, but those who take to it will obsess. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Oct 28, 2017

    In many ways this is a standard first issue for a new series with an established character. It is, however, elevated by the artwork and the fact that it serves as a very accessible entry point for a character who has quite a developed backstory at this point. All in all it is an enjoyable outing, even if it isn't going to knock your socks off. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manny Gomez Oct 25, 2017

    'Hack/Slash: Ressurection' is a welcome return for this unique high-concept driven, well written comic. It works for both new readers and die-hard fans. Cassie Hack is a great horror hero in the tradition of Buffy Summers and Laurie Myers/Strode. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 25, 2017

    Hack/Slash: Resurrection is off to an okay start. It's a conundrum though, does it want to just continue where it left off and if so then it needs to make the tie and emotions to previous series deeper and more defined. If not, then it needs to develop Cassie's character more for new readers to understand her better. Right now, it's trying to do both and not being truly successful at either. It's an okay issue, but it had the potential of a truly fresh start and seems to have missed the opportunity. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 28, 2017

    Fitting very much into the role of reluctant hero, Cassie has put her life of monster fighting behing her (or at least tried to). More annoyed than anything else by the arrival of new zombies, she's forced to leave the warm cocoon of her hermitage and head back out into the world. The panels of the prison's evil scientist and his experiments suggest these won't be the last zombies sent her way, but first she'll have to get settled in to the bizarre new job she just agreed to take. For fans. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Colin McKlang Nov 11, 2017

    The writing is well done and tells a coherent story that draws you into the story and wanting more. Even newcomers like myself shouldn't be scratching their heads trying to figure out what is going on. I'd recommend it for longtime fans or people like myself that are looking to get into the series.
