The ultimate thrash juggernaut, SLAYER has dominated stages and destroyed audiences for over thirty years, with their latest album, Repentless, showing no signs of slowing down or showing mercy.
Based on the brutal "Repentless" video trilogy by B. J. McDonnell, this expansion of the video with story lines by writer Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Venture Brothers) and illustrator Guiu vilanova (Conan, Weird Detective) drives deep into the darkest heart of America, spawning a raging road trip down a bloodstained highway, a tale of the doomed, the damned . . . and the repentless!
Slayer lyrics have always read like graphic novels – violent, bloody, belligerent, menacing – and their cover art regularly depicts ensanguined hellish infernos. So the only thing surprising about the thrash-metal group's foray into comic books, which they're announcing today, is that it's taken them so long to make one.
