Victor Crowley is back! It’s been more than 10 years since Adam Green’s original Hatchet terrorized audiences in theaters nationwide. Eleven years and two sequels later, the folks at ArieScope debuted Hatchet Comics Issue #0. That was in April. Adam Green himself Tweets word that Issue #1 is now available for Pre-Order!
About Hatchet Comics:
Victory Crowley returns to terrorize comics in a brand new comic series! In 2006 film maker Adam Green released a new American horror movie that paid homage to his favorite monsters. The movie was Hatchet and it told the story of Victor Crowley, a deformed child that came back to life as an unstoppable killing machine. Cursed to live out his terrifying last moments again and again, Crowley brutally murders anyone foolish enough to enter his swamp sanctuary. Filled with over the top gore, classic movie monster horror, and a boatload of black humor, this is the ultimate comic for fright fans!
As with Issue #0, Issue #1 has a variety of covers, all signed by Adam Green himself. Check these bad boys out!
The Synopsis Of Issue #1:
Return with us to Honey Island Swamp for a brand new tale of horror at the hands of Victor Crowley in the new issue of American Mythology’s hit HATCHET comic series!
