This November, Devil’s Due unleashes Hack/Slash: Land of Lost Toys #1 (of 3) (SEPT052896).

Continuing with his full color twisted and comedic tales is writer Tim Seeley who hand picked artist Dave Crosland (Puffed, and Bad Ideas with Jim Mahfood) for the artwork. Cover art features the talents of Stefano Caselli (G.I.Joe).

"I'm psyched to get to do a 3 issue mini series.” said writer Tim Seeley. “It allows me a lil 'more room for twisted weirdness, hyper violence, and a lil' bit of characterization here and there."

"Dave Crosland is really knocking this one out of the park.” Seeley added. “He and (colorist) Katie DeSousa make a great team, and I think the visuals they're creating are absolutely perfect for the feel of this story."
