In July, Slayer announced they would be teaming with Dark Horse Comics for a three-part comic book series based on their most recent album, Repentless. We learned Jon Schnepp, the man who designed the character art for Metalocalypse, will be overseeing and writing the project with Guiu Vilanova drawing the interiors. Glenn Fabry is in charge of the cover art and Eric Powell will do the alternate cover. The comics will be based on the recent Slayer music video trilogy, and the creators promise it will be violent and gory.
Back in November, we got a two image preview of the comic series, and today we see even more. It's clear that the comic will fill in story gaps from the music videos like "who the hell is the guy with the eye patch?" and "what does he have to do with Nazis?" Unfortunately, we don't see much of Slayer in these pages, but we already know they will make an appearance.
The first issue will be available January 25.
