Hatchet/Slash: Hack/Slash Annual Number Three

Written by Benito Cereno, Art by Ariel Zucker-Brull, Cover A by Tim Seeley & Mark Englert, Cover B by Ariel Zucker-Brull and Published by Image Comics

It was just a matter of time before Cassie Hack of Hack/Slash and Victor Crowley of Hatchet would square off against each other.  And of course, it would have to be in the arena of fan fiction.  Well, there is no more of a perfect contender for ‘Perfect Stranger’ fanfic than this year’s Hack/Slash Annual, Hatchet/Slash, which will feature Cassie vs Crowley.
