Tim Seeley, Jim Terry and Steven Kostanski join the GNR guitarist on the project that resurrects the 1980s film franchise.
Guns’N’Roses Guitarist Slash and Vault Comics, through their rock’n’roll Headshell imprint, are teaming up to bring the 1980s fantasy film Deathstalker to comics.
“I’m excited to be kicking off a new era of Deathstalker,” Said Slash. “From Tim Seeley, artist Jim Terry, writer-director-creature FX-wizard Steven Kostanski, and myself, our Deathstalker is a re-imagining of that fine specimen of ’80s sword and sorcery. With fantasy, you get a little of everything: horror, magic, sex, thrills, blood, guts, swords and weirdness. You know—all those things you can’t look away from. And that’s what we’re bringing. So—please—if you share my love of all things wicked, check it out!”

The new horror/western series from Vault Comics arrives in March.
Tim Seeley, Aaron Campbell and Jim Terry will team for a new comic next year “that mashes up Hammer Horror and Sergio Leone,” according to Seeley.
West of Sundown, announced today by Vault Comics, will feature Seeley and Campbell as co-writers. Terry will draw the comic, which will be colored by Triona Farrell, lettered by Crank! and designed by Tim Daniel.

“West of Sundown is about the great mythologies of the old world slamming into the folklore of the new world…the legends of Europe, and the birth of the American beast,” Seeley said in the press release. “And, taking that theme as a skeleton, we’ve draped it with the sewed together skin of Sergio Leone Westerns and Hammer Horror films. Gritty sunsets meets foggy nights. The gothic graveyard meets Boot Hill. What horrors lie in our shared unconsciousness, and how do we stuff them all into a too-tight corset?”
The anthology will arrive in November.
Marvel has announced another issue of their anthology series Marvel’s Voices for November, titled Marvel’s Voices: Heritage. Like last year’s Marvel’s Voices: Indigenous, this one will feature creators and characters from Indigenous communities.
Contributors include Nyla Innuksuk, David Cutler, Jim Terry, Maria Wolf and Rebecca Roanhorse.

Tim Seeley and Jim Terry will bring together two horror comics icons in ‘The Crow: Hack/Slash.’
Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley will pit his creation against another horror comic icon in June, when IDW Publishing presents The Crow: Hack/Slash. The crossover comic will be written and drawn by Seeley, with The Crow artist Jim Terry providing inks.
Created in the late 1980s by James O’Barr, The Crow, Seeley said, inspired him to tell “dark and personal stories full of pain and beauty.”
“The Crow defined me as a fan of the comics medium, but also introduced me to a whole world of music and fashion that I’d never had access to before – one that completely fit the attitude my teenage brain was desperately looking for,” Seeley said in a press release. “It introduced me to the idea that comics could tell dark and personal stories full of pain and beauty. No doubt about it – without O’Barr’s original The Crow, there would never have been a Hack/Slash. Mixing Cassie, Vlad, and The Crow has been in the making for 25 years, and my buddy Jim Terry and I cannot wait to unleash it on the world.”
