Reviews - What do customers think about Hack / Slash Volume 3: Friday the 31st (Hack/Slash)?
Fun read. Sep 5, 2008
This is a good read. Artwork may be hit or miss at times, but enjoyable overall. The characters introduced in this comic are all interesting. The bad guys are quite good, too. Some original takes on old standards. Some of the same stories reprinted in the Hack/Slash Omnibus.
this site has a habit of sending me damaged books, though, so if you like pristine copies, I'd probably just hit the comic book store. I've bought a few comic book volumes from this site and every one of them has had smashed corners, which is too bad because you can find good prices on a lot of these things.
One of the best graphic novels available! Jul 4, 2008
As a comic reader for over thirty years, it takes quite a bit to impress me now. However, Hack/Slash has become my favorite comic title over the last two years. It has excellent writing, beautiful art, real characters who become deeper and deeper as the series progresses, an absolutely wicked sense of humor, and storylines that treat readers to much more than 99% of the comics and so-called "serious" literature out there today.
This particular collection is my favorite of the Hack/Slash TPBs available now, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested. While reading the earlier two volumes helps with knowing some of the other characters, you can start with this volume and still enjoy it even if you've never seen the two earlier volumes. I know this, because I started with this particular volume myself.
As I mentioned before, the writing is superb, with plots that certainly do NOT follow any recycled horror movie scripts. Most of the storylines will leave you thinking even after you've reached the end; the humor and art are some of the best in comics today, and they make having an intelligent, entertaining plot that much sweeter. I could not recommend this book or series with any higher praise.
Please do note that this is not a series for younger readers. There are some fairly gruesome scenes in it, and some of the humor is definitely more mature. It IS inspired by horror movies, so if you're old enough to watch them (or sneak into them), you're in a good age group to read Hack/Slash. If you're under thirteen, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. If you're under thirteen AND watching horror movies, go find your parents and yell at them for not supervising you adequately. But if you're over thirteen and have the money, BUY THIS BOOK! You will NOT be disappointed! Plus, if you've read this far you know you want it, so stop debating and click the button. It's worth the money.

One of the greatest graphic novels ever written it features a hilarious and cleverly written plot as well as stunning art a musthave for any slasher film fan
The best of horror comics Jan 28, 2008
Hack/Slash is the pinnacle of Horror comics. Its funny, creepy, gory and not to mention sexy. Cuz lets face it, Cassies hot. I recommend all 3 graphic novel collections of Hack/Slash. This one has a dream come true for horror fans. Cassie meets an actual movie slasher in Chucky. And Chucky is written perfectly here. His hilarious "I cant wait to kill somebody" attitude is very present through the whole story. I hope Cassie ends up meeting other horror icons like Freddy,Jason, Michael and Pinhead. I'm a huge horror fan. And I honestly believe the best medium for the genre is in comics. Cuz here you can do things more often than you can in films. And the colors and the atmosphere in comics can bring things to life that other mediums have a harder time doing. And Hack/Slash is the best of the best. If you like great slashers, beautifully creepy atmosphere and good comedy. Look no further than Hack/Slash.
