Hatchet was a 2006 American slasher film written and directed by Adam Green. The film hads an ensemble cast, including Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Mercedes McNab and Tony Todd. In style of old-school slasher films such as Friday the 13th, the plot followed a group of tourists on a New Orleans haunted swamp tour accidentally stranded in the wilderness only to be hunted by the vengeful spirit of a deformed being who kills anyone that enters the swamp.
American Mythology Press published a Hatchet #0 earlier in the year, but now it’s coming back with a full series. And five cover variants too. By James Kuhoric and Andrew Mangum.
Come with us back to Honey Island Swamp for a brand new tale of horror at the hands of Victor Crowley. It’s 1983 and a group of college kids with aspirations of creating the next blockbuster horror franchise set out to find the place where New Orleans most notorious boogeyman lived. Victor Crowley waits for those foolish enough to enter his swamp and disturb his nightmare cycle. This is old school horror returned to comics with Adam Green’s vision of rage and terror unleashed on the comics’ page.
