Book Description:
1916. A man haunts the roads. A man with razor-sharp teeth and a hunger for flesh. When twelve-year old Jack Garron runs away from home to find his father, a wayward minstrel who he hasn't seen since birth, he'll discover how quickly the American Dream can become a nightmare. From Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE, BATMAN, SWAMP THING), writer Scott Tuft, and New York Times Best Seller artist Attila Futaki (PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS) comes the critically acclaimed horror hit of the year in this deluxe hardcover edition.
"For those who believe that violence and gore are the principal hallmarks of an engaging graphic horror story, Tuft and Snyder (Batman; American Vampire) make the case that exemplary storytelling is essential as well." - Publisher's Weekly

"Futaki's artwork is exceptional, mixing fine-lined horror aesthetic with homespun characters." - Publisher's Weekly

"One of the best horror comics in years" - Complex

"a perfect storm when it comes to horror comics." -IGN

"SEVERED is a masterfully paced thriller with a horrific monster endangering characters that you truly care about. Highly recommended." - Aint It Cool News

Great timing! I just finished up Saucer Country and was about to start reading Crossed by my Dad's recommendation. I just happen to have Severed but haven't read it yet so it will give me a great excuse to put that off again and place it at the bottom of my stack...

A Good ol' fashioned horror story.
I didn't realise it was only 7 issues long when i started it and like any good book i was a little sad to have finished it.
I hope Scott Snyder & Scott Tuft collaborate on more horror books.

It was a good book overall. I'd pick up any sequels they decide to make in the future.
