A young woman awakens in a hospital covered in scars as if she had been taken apart and put back together again. Her mind is as fragmented as her body, leaving her delusional and seeing monsters everywhere. Is this the work of a serial killer, or something far worse? FBI Agent Erin Scott intends to help her fi nd out, with or without the approval of her superiors in this visionary modern, mature re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend from acclaimed artist/creator Tyler Kirkham (New Guardians, Teen Titans, Amazing Spider-Man).

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jun 5, 2013

    Basically if you're heading out to the comic shop today and not quite sure what to pick up, give Screwed a chance. it's something different, even in a world where a lot of companies are doing their own twist on classic stories, none of them have been quite this different. It's a breath of fresh air from the overcrowded superhero market too, really there's only so many times I can read about Superman punching something, we get it he's super-strong, lets forget that stuff and get more books like this on the shelves.

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy Jun 9, 2013

    This was a great read and one of my favorite books of the week. It takes another classic character and brings it to the Zenescope family, and I will be honest that I like this iteration of the Frankenstein monster more so than the one currently in DC'sJustice League Dark. I don't know why, but I just really enjoyed this version. If you like a story that will have an encapsulated arc (this is a miniseries) and has good art and an engaging story, this is something you should give a look to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jul 1, 2013

    With enough action, mystery, pretty girls, and gory events to stoke the horror and action fan in you, Screwed is one hell of a ride worth taking. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Jun 6, 2013

    If you’re a fan of Zenescope books, you’ll walk away happy after reading Screwed, because this is pretty much more of the same. Personally, I think that’s a shame, given what I honestly believe this company could accomplish if it sought to rise above its misguided commitment to cheesecake kitsch. It’s really not a bad concept for a story and some of its beats are really fun, but this will never become anything more than the comic book equivalent of a late-night basic cable slasher-skin flick. If that’s your bag, then hey, by all means ... get Screwed. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Jun 7, 2013

    I certainly had preconceptions as to what a Zenescope comic is and wrongly brought them with me, though that sometimes is unavoidable. I have to say, I was wrong. Screwed #1 made me change my view, even though some of my issues with the company's output persist. Regardless, Screwed provides enough mystery and intrigue with its modern day Frankenstein hook that I'll be back for further issues Read Full Review
