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.
