I'm looking at the wiki page for Omnibus 4 and if that's correct then you're missing some of the newer crossovers like Bomb Queen ( http://comicbookrealm.com/series/276...es-day-special ) and Eva ( http://comicbookrealm.com/series/281...-monsters-ball ). It also looks like My First Maniac isn't in there.

Would still be missing...

Unless ones a completist I recommend avoiding..
Hack/Slash/Eva: Monsters Ball - I still have buyers remorse when it comes to this one. The covers are great but the story reminds me of how well Marvel and Malibu handled horror (ie: not very well).
Hack/Slash Mercy Sparks: Slice of Hell - the story is weak and Mercy is like a knock off visually of either Purgatory or Coop's work.
However, as I said earlier, I can't recommend the First Maniac trade enough, its a great story with great art. And I believe it retails at 10 and can be picked up for even cheaper on Amazon, probably.
Hack/Slash: Me Without You - Our pal Vlad gets some character depth and more of a history.
Thanks everyone for the info, much appreciated!
I am the law.
There have probably been other hot red she-devils with black hair, ha I mean, there's only so much you can do there. Plus Mercy was created by one of Hack/Slash's best artists Matt Merhoff.
Agreed that stuff is definitely skippable, but it is great how easy it is to catch up on Hack/Slash with those sexy omnibuses. Pretty much one of the easiest series to jump into.
