Review

They say there’s a fine line between obsession and passion. Cassie stands on this threshold, teetering between the two. If she’s not careful she may get an unwelcome push in the wrong direction.

Is there anything better than an evening jam-packed with hacking slashers? No, I didn’t think so. Tim Seeley turns the carnage up to max capacity in Hack/Slash vs. Chaos #3, unleashing the full might of Cassie and the mighty Draugsplitter sword. Watching Cassie kick-ass is always good entertainment, but Seeley takes the issue even further revealing a truly nefarious plan.

Hack/Slash vs. Chaos #3 moves the story forward, while giving Cassie room to flex her sword fighting arm. Seeley captures the intensity of the character and the storyline with the carnage, while addressing deeper questions about the series in Ernie’s commentary. As Cassie teeters on the brink of obsession, will Ernie turn out to be an unlikely hero in this series?

Hack/Slash vs. Chaos #3 continues to be a bloodbath, do we really expect less, and Celor captures every drop of blood in his sensational artwork. As Cassie spirals into a fighting frenzy, Celor depicts her swordplay in frantic, close panels, building a considerable amount of tension in this issue. Overall, Celor’s details add a dash of humanity to an otherwise grim story.

The Bottom Line

Hack/Slash vs. Chaos #3 is another kick-ass issue, but with a few twists. Tim Seeley’s script is shaping into a fantastic story, full of all the carnage one expects from Cassie and Vlad.
