Well, I don't know what I was expecting this to be. I guess the writing team of Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti have turned out some decent stuff in the past, so I thought this might have a little more to it. Some oomph or something to set it apart from being just an incredibly standard, empty, rote entry in the Friday the 13th series. The whole time I was reading it I kept expecting some form of deconstruction, or at least just a twist or something to make it worth my time. But, sadly, here I s ...more

Recommends it for: teenage boys who like Playboy and hardcore horror fans
I genuinely wanted to like this graphic novel. I wanted to come away from it thinking it had gone beyond the films and made something unique out of Jason Voorhees' story. And in a way it does, with plenty of exposed breasts and nipples (in a rate the films never managed) and non-stop homophobic language. It also lets you know from the start who survives Crystal Lake Camp, working the story into the survivor's memories. But a combination of highly unlikeable characters, a first act which suddenly ...more

I had a hard time getting my head around what the book truly meant by 'adding more to the Jason Voorhees story'. This actually only is quite a minor plot in the story. There were other mentionable things that I had to look at twice to really understand, but nevertheless, the graphic novel does really well for itself.

I really enjoyed it. It was classic Jason Voorhees, with homages to some great death deviations, for them men there was sex and breasts (quite annoying when your a female reader I gu

Decent creepy read that doesn't try to be more than a good horror movie in comic book form.
A group of annoying 20-somethings get a job of cleaning up Crystal Lake camp in the off season.

Of course, Jason shows up and starts killing them off.

Cast is okay, but nearly all of them never develop farther than being types and only mildly likable/interesting.
A great creepy, suspenseful vibe makes this an entertaining, creepy read.

Falls apart at the end, which hurts it, as the build up good.
Still,better t

Wow, I wasn't expecting much from this comic but it was pretty good. The teens were what you'd expect. Jason kicks ass as usual and the gore is outrageous. The attempts to expand the mythology are minor and uninteresting, but not obtrusive. Overall, a nicely enjoyable hack fest. Plus, there's a cool sketch of hillbilly Jason in the back! Yeah!

Um, this really doesn't actually deserve 4 stars, but I found it pretty highly entertaining. I could've done with less appearances of ladies boobs, but, that's one of those things I can overlook. I did appreciate that this was an all new story instead of just retelling another Jason story.

This was a really cool mini-series that did a great job capturing the feel of the movies. A must read for fans of the movies.

Fun read that works great alongside the movies. The art fits well and is superbly done. See also Spooks, Ratchet and Clank for more if the talented Archer's work.
