By Maryann Yin 

Dark Horse Comics announced plans to publish a comic series called Slayer: Repentless. The first of three issues will be released on January 25, 2017.

Slayer, the popular heavy metal band, will collaborate with Jon Schnepp, a writer, and Guiu Vilanova, an artist, to create this project. Glenn Fabry has signed on to design the covers.

Schnepp gave this statement in the press release: “It’s been my honor to chronicle the bloody road trip that is the Slayer comic series from Dark Horse/Nuclear Blast. Using the band’s music and lyrics from their three decades of albums, while crossing over and through the Repentless music videos by BJ McDonnell, I have woven a tale of betrayal, hate, perspective, loyalty, family, and murder that will need to be experienced through the comic books’ pages.”
