Dark Horse Comics and Slayer have joined forces to deliver a new comic series this holiday season.
With full participation from the band and taking inspiration from Slayer’s recent Repentless music videos (filmed in support of their latest album, Repentless, on Nuclear Blast Records), disciple Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) will pen the three-issue comic series with interior bloodlines drawn by Guiu Vilanova (Twilight Zone, Conan the Avenger, Weird Detective). Glenn Fabry’s covers reign in blood while postmortem Eric Powell (The Goon, Hillbilly) will illustrate the variant cover for the first issue.
“I think of the songs I write as stories,” Slayer’s Kerry King told Rolling Stone in an exclusive interview. “And if nothing else, they are certainly visual.”
Slayer appeared within the walls of Comic-Con for two exclusive signings on Friday, July 22nd. Nuclear Blast America hosted and Dark Horse Comics hosted both the band and the comic’s creative team for a very limited engagement.
Regarding the comic, writer Jon Schnepp told Rolling Stone, “It’s definitely a lot of sensitive subjects that need to be explored and addressed. What’s the best way to explore those? With the chaos of metal.”
