Last year Scott Snyder teamed up with co-writer Scott Tuft and artist Attila Futaki to deliver one of the most haunting horror comics of the past decade. Served is a powerful horror story that we’ve grown to love here at BD.
“Severed” has already achieved classic horror status and for good reason. It throws back to 1916 to explore the journey of a young boy who runs away from home only to encounter a twisted villain, based on real life serial killer, Albert Fish. Scott Snyder was kind enough to offer up issue #1 for your reading pleasure, check it out below. READ MORE
At times, the horror genre sets up a chain of copycats, but at its best, it has something original to say. From Image Comics, Severed has already become a cult classic that boasts thought-provoking motifs and vivid imagery. Writers Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft, along with artist Attila Futaki, have crafted a horror story that transcends the genre itself and speaks loudly about human nature. READ MORE
Image’s seven-issue run on Severed is finally over, and I don’t think there was any doubt from the get-go that this series would be anything short of phenomenal. Snyder gets a lot, and I mean a lot, of praise for his work over at DC on Batman, and Swamp Thing, which is Cool and the Gang, but Severed is another beast entirely. Severed puts the fear back in horror comics. I don’t mean that it’s just creepy or gory; this is a downright terrifying book that fully immerses the reader into the pages and doesn’t let go, even after the final page. There are times throughout the series when you can’t help but hold your breath in anticipation. Every issue is tense as all hell, beautiful, entirely haunting, and the final issue is no exception.

Scott Snyder is a literary giant and needs no introduction, but Scott Tuft is new blood in the comic book world, and together they are forging one of the most breathtakingly creepy books out there. SEVERED is the tall tale of a young boy in the early 20th century who runs away from home only to discover the greater horrors that await him on the outside.
Deemed by Snyder as a “historical horror” story, SEVERED evokes a certain sense of nostalgia for simpler times, while simultaneously bringing to light the utter terror that was dwelling beneath the surface. This is book will creep up on you when you least expect it, it will become the little voice inside your head, it will become the subtextual substance of your nightmares.
Now on issue 6 of a 7-part miniseries, the creative team has nearly completed their eerie adult fairy-tale. Snyder and Tuft sat down with Bloody-Disgusting to discuss the origins of the story, the difficulties of writing for a large audience, and the pleasure of writing horror comics.
Last month marked the debut of one of the Summer’s most lauded horror debuts with Scott Tuft, Scott Snyder (“AMERICAN VAMPIRE”, “BATMAN”) and Attila Futaki’s “SEVERED”. The series was a runaway sell-out on its first day of release, and beyond the break we have a very special 6 page preview of the second ish in the monthly, which will hit shelves tomorrow!

By now I am sure you are all very familiar with Scott Snyder. After all, the creator has singlehandedly put the horror genre in a sleeper-hold even Hulk Hogan would applaud. However, even though the “AMERICAN VAMPIRE” scribe has been earning his Industry Merit Badges mostly due to his frighteningly good run on DC’s “DETECTIVE COMICS”, he hasn’t even begun to forget about his roots in the horror industry. Instead of taking the road so many others have in the past once they see stardom, Snyder has embraced the genre and sought to not only dabble in it, but to master it. Case in point – “SEVERED” Issue #1, or as I like to call it: “Potential Horror Mini-Series Of The Year”. Read on for the skinny…
