Hack/Slash: Resurrection #1

I'm far from the biggest Hack/Slash fan, but I decided to pick up the first issue of the new series written by Tini Howard, and I'll admit it's a fun read. With her partner dead, Cassie Hack has been reduced to hiding out in a trailer park with her cat living life in seclusion as a cam girl and fighting virtual zombies online for the joy (and donations) of her anonymous fans. When a pair of escaped zombie twins from the Englund Correction Facility show up banging on her trailer, followed soon after by a third zombie trespasser, our heroine is roused out of her slumber and forced to reconsider taking a job as a counselor at the nearby Camp Indigo River.

Fitting very much into the role of reluctant hero, Cassie has put her life of monster fighting behing her (or at least tried to). More annoyed than anything else by the arrival of new zombies, she's forced to leave the warm cocoon of her hermitage and head back out into the world. The panels of the prison's evil scientist and his experiments suggest these won't be the last zombies sent her way, but first she'll have to get settled in to the bizarre new job she just agreed to take. For fans.
