    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Jan 14, 2012

    Having just weathered the annual storm of best-of-the-year awards, I was sorely disappointed to see Severed turn up missing on many sites' lists, Comics Bulletin's included. (Don't blame me, though -- I voted for it!) How such a brilliantly constructed comic could fly under the radar -- with an A-list creator co-writing it, no less! -- is beyond me. Snyder and Tuft are writing a textbook on how to do horror/suspense, perfecting a formula capable of delivering goosebumps via any narrative medium. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts Jan 12, 2012

    There's masterful visuals that are as sharp as the Saleman's teeth, which keep the tension high and the blood pumping until you've reached the last page that will keep you edge waiting the next installment. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jan 15, 2012

    This is a great miniseries and I fully expect the creators to nail the landing next month. If you haven't been reading the single issues and you like horror, the collected edition is a CAN'T MISS. Scott Snyder teased that they may turn this into an ongoing series. Not sure how they do that, but hope that it happens. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jan 15, 2012

    I'm really happy that I took a chance on his series when it was first announced. While Scott Snyder often gets me on board without too much difficulty, this is quite different from his other works right now. One of the best parts of this series has been reading it as a monthly, as it makes the sometimes unnerving cliffhangers last even longer. Can't wait to see how it all gets tied up next month.

    IGN - Erik Norris Jan 11, 2012

    With only one issue to go, Severed is shaping up to be a modern horror comic classic. The writing is as sharp as the Salesman's teeth; the artwork is strikingly beautiful; and the story makes it almost a necessity to wear a diaper when diving in. That's a perfect storm when it comes to horror comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Jan 11, 2012

    Like the last issue, there's not enough horror to be a funhorror book. And there's not muchelse circulating to keep me interested. When I reviewed issue 5, I though that this story may be too broad toencapsulate within the comic medium. Now I think that it's like the dud firework in the great big packagethat only shits a few sparks when lit. Read Full Review
