Venom was a band that strongly influenced the image and the idea behind Slayer.
As much as I love elements of Spider-Man’s past, I don’t really want to go back in and retell the Gwen Stacy and Green Goblin story in animation just so I can do my take on it. I don’t want to redo the first ‘Spider Slayer’ story.
I grew up watching ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and used to dream that I would grow up to be just like her. In a way, ‘Teen Wolf’ has a lot of those kinds of characters. We’re just kids by day, and yet we’re trying to fight demons and werewolves and bad people and save people that we love.

I think the church and the religion right now have a lot more to be worried about than SLAYER.

Comedy is a great slayer of rogues in power.
Slayer just goes from generation to generation to generation, because it’s just so great.
