More good stuff surrounding former Sire artist Daniel Leister’s new book Hack/Slash. Tim Seely comments on Dan’s work and the future of the title. From Comic Book Resources: In his continued effort to keep the story moving forward, Seeley teamed up with former Grimm Fairy Tales artist Daniel William Leister to pencil “My First Maniac” before moving on as the regular artist of the ongoing “Hack/Slash” title. Seeley summed Leister’s contributions to the book in one simple word. “Cheesecake. Dan brings a lot of cheesecake,” Seeley said. “He loves to draw butts. With Dan, he was someone I’ve known for quite a while. We have the same art dealer, and he was doing the Grimm Fairy Tales stuff and obviously knew how to do horror. He knows how to do monsters and girls. He kind of comes into it already knowing how to do what people see as the veneer of the book, which is boobs and blood and he’s learning to be good at what I think the book is actually about, which is the little character moments and the people. It’s a win-win for both of us. I get somebody who has a cool style, sort of a hot artist style, and he’s also into doing the little stuff that a lot of artists get bored by.” Seeley continued, explaining how important it is for the title and its art to remain on the right side of the line between cheesecake and smut, telling CBR, “One of the reasons I always tried to get female artists to work with is because I think they understood what my intent was for the book. I wanted it to be sexy, but I didn’t want it to be sleazy. It’s easier for girls to understand. Dan’s got his hormones firing so he occasionally slips and I’ll have to tell him to [rein it in]. But he’s been great and he’s doing great stuff. He’s on the book for the foreseeable future.” For the full article go to: – See more at:
