    Heartwarming and senses shattering, this story has delivered so much more than I ever expected. Now that it is half done, and the unexpected happened in this issue in a hideous, horrible way, I'm looking forward to what new surprises Snyder and Tuft are going to throw our way. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a well-constructed horror comic, Severed is a damn fine choice. The pacing is great, the characters are interesting and the threat is as terrifying as horror icons such as Michael Myers. This isn't your typical torture porn that has snaked its way into the collective consciousness of the world and deemed itself "quality." Severed is what true horror should be about: something that plays with your mind as much as it plays with body limbs. Read Full Review

    Horror comics rarely deliver what they promise. Severed isn't a traditional horror comic as we are experiencing more of a horror-mood. Snyder and Tuft, along with Futaki on art, are crafting a world in which some of the scarier things are those hiding underneath the surface. This is definitely a comic that doesn't have to rely on an established franchise in order to capture your interest. The main character has entered dangerous territory and because it's a creator owned title, no one is safe. You don't know what to expect. The suspense builds up on each page and you almost hesitate to turn to the next page. It's a great read but now that we're half way, it's hard to say where the story will go from here. It almost feels like it could drag on for a couple more issues but it's more likely we're going to get some big surprises. Read Full Review

    I absolutely do not like it when a the smartest character inthe book that's kept others from making mistakes, makes the biggest mistake ofthem all. What's worse is that in this issue it's just to prove themselvesright since they were already free of the situation they felt stuck in before.I can't say that I'll be back for the next issue, I think that my journey endsright here. The writers of the book said from the beginning that they wanted asense of dread and suspense to flow throughout the book and to be honestthey were doing a fantastic job until this issue. The sense of dread, thedanger is gone and regardless if the story ends with a happy ending it will nothave the same meaning as it once did. Others may read this book and think thatit's great and if you want more details from me after reading it for yourself,head back here and I'll tell you why this issue broke the "rules" of its own storyand thus left me the reader alienated.
