Eisner-nominated cartoonist Zoe Thorogood is back at Image Comics with a spinoff series from one of the publisher’s longest-running properties. Hack/Slash: Back to School is a four-issue miniseries written and illustrated by Thorogood, and set in the world of Tim Seeley‘s iconic monster-hunter. It tells an untold tale of Cassie Hack in her early days.

Here’s how Image describes Hack/Slash: Back to School:

Hack/Slash returns with an untold tale! Slasher hunter Cassie Hack is only just getting used to her man-monster partner, Vlad, when she’s drawn into a new case involving a murderous bunny mascot, dead kids, and an entire squad of maladjusted teenage serial-killer hunters. Hack/Slash: Back to School #1 begins a completely new chapter in the beloved, long-running series that’s perfect for new readers and old fans alike, just in time for Halloween.

Hack/Slash: Back to School is the latest Image Comics work for Thorogood. Her previous work with the publisher includes the five-issue Joe Hill’s Rain and the graphic memoir It’s Lonely At The Centre of the Earth.

In a statement announcing the miniseries, Thorogood and Seeley both expressed their enthusiasm at working together on the series:

“I’ve been a fan of Zoe’s work since I first saw her comics on instagram,” said Seeley. “The fact that she’s not only an old school fan of Hack/Slash, but had some big ideas for Cassie and Vlad makes co-creator Stefano Caselli and I proud as can be. She’s going to roll right out of the Eisner awards and tell the untold tales of our sexy slasher dramedy just in time for the 20th anniversary!”

Thorogood added: “I love the bizarre crossroads of disturbed/sexy/gory/sentimental that Hack/Slash sits at. It’s a series of endless absurd possibilities and it’s been a real joy to put my spin on it (in the form of a monster hunting school for girls with mommy issues).”
