Spike TV has announced that Hack/Slash, the acclaimed independent comic book horror series created by Tim Seeley and published by Devil’s Due Publishing, has been nominated in the category of “Best Comic Book” for the 2008 Scream Awards. Hack/Slash joins a list of nominees now up for fan voting at Spike.com.

“Because of the loyal readers of Hack/Slash, we've become the little book that could,” said creator and writer Tim Seeley. “We're still here, and we're giving more and more readers their monthly dose of twisted horror and laughs.”

As a Scream Awards nominee, Hack/Slash will be up for voting against five other nominees on Spike.com. The winner will be announced when the Scream awards are televised in October.

“All we need now is for every last Cassie and Vlad fan to run over to Spike's website and tell 'em you want Hack/Slash to get a nice, bloody award!” said Seeley.

Hack/Slash’s nomination follows a huge year for the series that has seen the collected Hack/Slash Omnibus sell out, in addition to the first ever Hack/Slash webcomic on SuicideGirls.com that was published in Hack/Slash Annual #1. Seeley also joined director Todd Lincoln and screenwriter Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) at 2008’s San Diego Comic-Con to discuss Hack/Slash and its current development as a feature-length film at Rogue Pictures.

“2008 has been an unprecedented year of success for Hack/Slash, and this nomination means a lot to us at Devil’s Due,” said DDP President Josh Blaylock. “Hack/Slash has been a DDP flagship since it began, and we are extremely proud to see it getting this level of recognition.”

Launched in 2004, Hack/Slash is the story of Cassie Hack, a survivor of an undead slasher attack, who teams with a burly loner named Vlad to take down villains straight out of Horror films. Now in its third year as an ongoing series, Hack/Slash has grown steadily in readership as the title has seen crossovers with the likes of Chucky, the Re-Animator, and Mark Kidwell’s Bump.
