Dark Horse Comics and Slayer to Release Repentless
Dark Horse Comics and thrash-punk titans Slayer have joined forces to deliver a new comic series this holiday season!
With full participation from the band and taking inspiration from Slayer’s recent Repentless music videos (filmed in support of their latest album, Repentless, on Nuclear Blast Records), disciple Jon Schnepp will pen the three-issue comic series with interior bloodlines drawn by Guiu Vilanova. Glenn Fabry’s covers reign in blood while postmortem Eric Powell will illustrate the variant cover for the first issue.
As announced in May, Slayer’s live undead appearance at Comic-Con will begin on Thursday, July 21, with a special sold-out concert performance at the intimate-capacity House of Blues to a crowd of die-hard fans.
Slayer will appear within the walls of Comic-Con for two exclusive signings on Friday, July 22. Nuclear Blast America (booth #501) will host the band from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Dark Horse Comics (booth #2615) will host both the band and the comic’s creative team for a very limited engagement from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Limited edition posters will be provided. See each booth for details.
Slayer: Repentless #1 (of 3) is on comic stands in December 2016.
