    I can never get quite enough Hack/Slash, so the arrival of this series has brought an extra bounce to my comic-book-store-going step. The entire creative team delivers a knock em dead issue, and theres no doubt this will be one of my first reads of the week each time it comes out. While I wish that Hack could have a little slice of happiness in her life, Im intrigued at the direction of this series so far. Read Full Review

    Complaints? Linking Cthulhu mythos and nazis has been done so many times, and whilst it's only fleeting, it jars slightly. There's also a somewhat vague section against the villain's narration, but it is (largely) resolved. It's a very strong issue, and I look forward to more – a hearty recommendation! Read Full Review

    The second issue of Cassie Hacks latest run brings Lord Morinto to the foreground and builds the intriguing relationship between Cassie and Delroy whilst moving the story along nicely. In a very enjoyable issue the focus is backstory and furthering the plot; by doing so helps us understand the new players we were introduced to in issue 1. Excited to see more of Morinto and his awesome God Beast. Read Full Review

    In this issue gore and the blood are there in spades, and there is a nice segment where Cassie and her new partner exchange philosophical banter amidst name calling, but sadly, this gives way to frenetic monster bashing and action sequences way to soon. I think once new readers have been sufficiently filled up on the backstory, and once the new creative team gets a better handle on the book's pacing, regular readers may be in for a consistent treat.

    The art is fantastic, especially in the only fight sequence of the issue, so it's enhancing the reading experience for sure. The plot itself does not progress far, just enough to satisfy; I understand that new readers need time to get familiar with these characters. The narration and dialog could stand to be trimmed a little, but that's fairly standard with Hack/Slash.
