Legendary heavy metal band Slayer has teamed up with Metalocalypse writer Jon Schnepp and Twilight Zone artist Guiu Vilanova for a three-issue Dark Horse Comics series, "Slayer: Repentless," with covers by Eisner Award-winning British comics artist Glenn Fabry.

The first issue, with a variant cover by Eric Powell (The Goon,Hillbilly), is scheduled for release on January 25, 2017. Pre-orders are online right here.

"It's been my honor to chronicle the bloody road trip that is the Slayer comic series from Dark Horse/Nuclear Blast," said writer Jon Schnepp. "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."

With its story of a raging road trip down a bloodstained highway, a tale of the doomed and the damned, the "Slayer: Repentless" series is an expansion of Slayer's "Repentless" videos, written and directed by BJ McDonnell (Hatchet III).
