❉ Victor Crowley returns to comics in early 2017.
American Mythology Productions is bringing the slasher horror trilogy Hatchet back to fans in early 2017, Horror Channel’s James Whittington recently reported.
In the article, Whittington says:
The Hatchet series has been a staple of horror movie lovers since the original film premiered in 2006, and who can blame them with a who’s who of horror legends appearing in the trilogy like Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Robert Englund, Tony Todd, Sid Haig, and Zach Galligan. Based in the folklore and voodoo of the back swamps of the Louisiana bayou, the story tells the sad tale of a deformed boy and what it takes to make a rampaging psychopath who’s handy with power tools. Enter a young girl named Marybeth, looking for her own revenge, and you’ll see why writer/director Adam Green hit slasher gold with the movies.
Under partnership with the series’ creator/licensor Adam Green and ArieScope Pictures, American Mythology promises to take the story in bold new directions, giving fans what they expect from the series, but also delving into as yet unexplored parts of Victor Crowley’s bloody past with not just one, but a series of planned story arcs revolving around the character. The company has already recruited a seasoned cast of veteran artists guaranteed to satisfy even the most hard core of horror fanatics with Andrew Mangum drawing the book’s interior art and covers by the likes of Greg LaRocque, Buz Hasson, and Ken Haesser.
