It’s raining blood with thrash metal nutters Assisted Twister.
Let’s have your horns up, metal fans! Assisted Twister featured in Rock In Purgatory this summer, with the band’s name being voted in by you, the people.
It’s no surprise that this piece is in part a tribute to the late Jeff Hanneman of Slayer. Hanneman was a phenomenal guitarist and song writer, who sadly died from complications as a resulf of a spider bite.
I designed the character in this strip around Hanneman and played on the Raining Blood imagery conjured by Slayer’s thrash classic. Rather than lean toward the actual story of Jeff’s death, I went for something completely different, while keeping it outrageously bloody as a respectful nod to a man whose music I’ve been a big fan of for years.
