COMIC BOOKS: SLAYER: REPENTLESS #1
For fans of metal and one of the most brutal speed metal thrash bands on the planet, SLAYER, there is not also a comic book based on the band’s album “Repentless” and videos that accompany it in the brand new
3-Issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics entitled SLAYER: REPENTLESS. Issue #1 is now available for pre-order through Dark Horse Comics HERE and is an expansion of the videos already out there, which if one has not seen them yet, they are bloody and gory as all hell and also are filled with cameos from some of the more well-known names in the horror film genre.
I read the first issue that Dark Horse Comics sent for press purposes and let me tell you if you like violent imagery, blood, and gore than this comic is for you. The story, based on the videos directed by B.J. McDonnell (HATCHET III) and a script by director/producer Jon Schnepp (Metalocaplypse, The Death of Superman Lives!), digs even deeper into the background of the guy with the patch in the video and there are more nazis, bikers, psychopaths, inmates, and jailhouse violence throughout the storyline! You may even recognize some of the characters in the first issue and fans of SLAYER and metal in general are going to want to jump to collect all three issues, as well as the sweet Eric Powell variant cover for collectibility purposes available for pre-order HERE!
The comic book is written by Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, The Venture Bros.) and drawn by Guiu Vilanova (The Twilight Zone, Dark Shadows), with Glenn Fabry (Preacher, Hellblazer) doing the standard cover for SLAYER: REPENTLESS #1 and Eric Powell (The Goon) doing the cover for the Variant Issue #1.
The issue’s publication date is January 25, 2017 and is going to be in full color and run 32 pages in length and be a 3-issue Miniseries. The cover price is $4.99.
As follows are the two covers:
