It seems like just yesterday swampland slasher Victor Crowley chopped his way into our hearts and through dozens of people in the lauded HATCHET franchise of horror/comedy movies. Seeming to meet his end in HATCHET III back in 2013, the status of the series seemed up in the air… until now. Ariescope has announced that the legend of Victor Crowley will live on: in comic book form! Creator Adam Green having recently revived one of his other original series, HOLLISTON through a comic book format, this makes sense as a logical extension.
From The Official Release
ArieScope Pictures has partnered with American Mythology (STARGATE ATLANTIS, THE THREE STOOGES, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT) to bring you a full series of HATCHET comic books starting in 2017. Based on Adam Green’s popular slasher franchise, American Mythology promises to take HATCHET in bold new directions with a series of planned story arcs revolving around genre icon “Victor Crowley.” A seasoned cast of veteran artists will bring the stories to life including Andrew Mangum (RE-ANIMATOR, EVIL ERNIE) who will be drawing the gory interiors and Greg LaRocque (THE AVENGERS, THE FLASH), Buz Hasson (THE LIVING CORPSE), and Ken Haesser (ARMY OF DARKNESS, BACK TO THE FUTURE) providing the gorgeously horrific covers. More details, artwork from the comics, and specific release dates for each issue will be available soon. One thing is for certain… the printers better stock up on red ink!
So, keep your eyes, ears, and assorted body parts out but attached as more updates come up in the future!
