Slay Team Comic

"Nothing can save you now... You've learned a lesson in violence.."

Early in 1985, at around the time that the Bonded By Blood album was released, a friend of Exodus created the Slay Team comic. The story was inspired by Exodus' legendary hatred of all things poser (Ratt, Motley Crue, etc.). The comic was mainly only seen by the band's local Bay Area fans and its existence was the stuff of myth and legend... until now!  Climb into the Umlaut time machine back to those raging days in The Bay Area when larger than life humans like Paul Baloff and Toby Rage walked the Earth.

"The Slay Team was created in the Winter of 1983.  Since then they have been ridding the world of such undesirables as posers, nuns, mods, preppies, churches, etc."

A note for those who may be offended by the violence of this 28 year old comic:  A female member of the Exodus inner circle, Lizzy Green, was responsible for drawing and creating it.  Yes, the girls raged as hard as the dudes in the original Bay Area Metal Scene!  Bonded by blood!  Death to posers..

"You won't hear a sound until my knife's in your back... from the Exodus attack.."
