Hack/Slash has become one of my favorite books, It carries a bit of comedy, a touch of wit with sarcasm, and down right all the horror you could need backed with a heroine for all times, even tossing in her slightly ogrish and yet well muscled and capable side kick.
Cassie or better known as Cassandra Hack and her Sidekick Vlad previously known as "The Meatman" venture through their lives fighting what Cassie is afraid she will become. Her mother and monsters like her. Cassie is the only survivor of her mother the serial killer "The Lunchlady." Who killed herself before she was arrested or did she? In chilling twists of the tales. Cassie travels the world with Vlad and all the US hunting down Serial killers in that have reanimated in the hopes that she will be the one that stands between them and the untimely as well as unfortunate deaths of their victims. Sometimes you win... sometimes you loose but it's all in how you play the game and Cassie's there to make sure it's always the home team.
