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
It’s usually difficult to buy comic book issues every month. Most likely, I’ll wait till the issues are collected and buy the trade paperback. It’s easier for me to see how the story arc comes full circle. But often, the best comics are the ones I buy in single issues and still get the trade paperback as well. Here is my list of the best trade paperbacks to come out of 2012. READ MORE
Yep! It’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving is on Thursday, which means dutiful consumers are already preparing for the Holiday Shopping Season. If you think you’re exempt from that, think again. Either you know a fellow horror fan (or family member) in need, or you want something for yourself! You can take this as advice for what to buy, or what to ask for.
This fourth installment is all about books and comics…lots of comics! We’ve got a few behind-the-scenes looks at some of your favorite movies, some novels, and some collector’s editions for you to check out as well. A huge thank you to BD Comics guru Lonnie Nadler who shot me some great suggestions! His blurbs are credited as “LN”.
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.
This week marks the second coming of DC’s New 52! Last week the anticipation finally ended and we can rest assured knowing that there are great comics coming out of the initially mixed-emotion reboot. Highlights from last week’s crop were Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Detective Comics, Action Comics, and Batwing. These bad boys are already selling out all over the world, even showing up on ebay going for more than a strand of Alex Trebek’s long lost moustache. It couldn’t be a better time to be a comic enthusiast.
Obviously there are loads of other comics coming out this week from other publishers, but in honor of such a milestone event, most of the books in this week’s COMICS TO FEAST ON are from DC’s New 52 lineup. Now I know you won’t be buying all 52 new series so let us know which books you can’t wait for!
With the ever-increasing number of books coming out between the tie-ins, the crossovers, and the new series, we’ve got to limit our list of comics for the week somehow. Rather than focus on every major comic hitting the shelves I’ll narrow it down to ten books that stand out from the rest. Whether you’ve been into comics since you were a young’un, or you’re new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books to read. Read on for the skinny…
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!

I look forward to this comic, and I hope you minions do to; in the meantime I will give you this interview. Read on for more…
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…

The truth is everyone would read all the books if they had the time and money, but in reality most of us don’t. Here you will find a little taste of some major comics being released each week, my take on them, and, as always, feels free to discuss below. Whether you have been into comics since you were a little one, or are new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books are for you. I’ve picked out some comics I feel will stand out in the coming week and listed them under their respective publisher, with over a dozen previews of some of your favorite books such as ”AMAZING SPIDER-MAN”, “GATES OF GOTHAM”, and “SWEET TOOTH”.

“Eisner nominated writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Detective Comics), writer Scott Tuft and New York Times Best-Selling artist Attila Futaki (Percy Jackson) have announced a new project with Image Comics, set to debut this August. Image has built a deserved reputation as the industry leader for providing readers with quality science fiction and horror material such as the massively popular titles THE WALKING DEAD, CHEW and HACK/SLASH, and like those titles, SEVERED is unlike any other monthly series and sure to be a hit with comic book and horror fans alike.
“SEVERED is a unique story that is extremely close to my heart, and in order to maintain complete creative control with the comic, Scott Tuft and I knew that it needed to be creator owned,” Synder commented. “We are extremely happy Image is giving us the platform to release SEVERED.”
Dead Space 2 is one of the greatest horror games I’ve played in a long time. It’s delicious blend of action, spectacle and terror has made it an early contender for Game of the Year, so obviously it’s first dose of DLC has quite a bit to live up to. Severed is already different from the game its expanding upon because it follows the two protagonists from the on-rails shooter Dead Space: Extraction, Gabe Weller and his wife Lexine Murdoch.

In case you’ve been living cosily under the mangled corpse of one of your friends who met their end at the end of a Necromorph’s claw there’s some DLC coming up for Dead Space 2. In fact, it’s called Severed and releases tomorrow for a paltry 560 Microsoft Flavored Limb Loot or $7 for people who own consoles that use real monies.
Severed is more than an expansion of Extraction’s story as we’ll be introduced to a deadly breed of Necromorph called the Twitcher that will be familiar to fans of the original game. In case you missed Dead Space they move incredible fast and have a bit of a twitch, and that’s pretty damn terrifying if you ask me. Head past the jump for details on future DLC for Dead Space 2.READ MORE
Dead Space 2 has some DLC on the horizon, the first of which is dubbed Severed and follows the stories of Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock from the underrated on-rails Wii shooter Dead Space: Extraction. Severed’s story is two chapters long and runs parallel to Isaac’s in the main game and if the following trailer is anything to go by it looks like just as much fun as the game it’s expanding upon.
I’ll admit I was a little worried we wouldn’t be seeing this DLC for a while, so the unveiling of a March 1st release date is pretty damn exciting. Add on top of that a price tag of 800 Microsoft Hillbilly Bucks and the only question remains, will you be getting this?READ MORE
Dead Space 2 has some DLC on the horizon that will provide two more chapters of hot human on Necromorph action. The DLC, dubbed ‘Severed’, will run parallel to the Isaac’s story and follow the lives of Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, the two protagonists from Dead Space: Extraction, who now live on the Sprawl.
That’s exciting, but these screenshots from the upcoming DLC are even more exciting. I’m also liking Gabe’s new threads, the cyclops look suits him well. Head past the break for the screens. READ MORE
Dead Space 2 is just hitting shelves today and we’re already getting some rather exciting announcements regarding sequels and DLC. It would seem Dead Space 2 will be getting some DLC entitled ‘Severed’ that will play parallel to the story in the main game. If you own a Wii (or now, a PS3) you’ll probably recognize the two protagonists from Dead Space: Extraction, Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock, who in the DLC live on the Sprawl after the events in Extraction.
The DLC will be two chapters long and will hopefully be only our first taste of DLC for the game, with much to follow. No word yet on pricing or a release date but that’s where patience comes in. I hear it’s a virtue. READ MORE
