    A great finale to this miniseries. I hope we haven't seen the last of these characters and creative team. You won't find a better told and illustrated pure horror story in recent comics. Read Full Review

    The end of "Severed" is satisfying. Though rather disappointing in its finality, Tuft and Snyder do offer a tease at the end that may or may not be called upon in a future tale. This is the type of comic that transcends the medium, ready and waiting to jump to another form. If that next incarnation is half as riveting as this story is, then it will be destined to be a critical classic. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Feb 8, 2012

    As a series, Severed has been a memorable entry in the horror genre. It's been a tense ride where the thought of hope and a brighter tomorrow are set aside to explore the darkest corners of the human condition. For a horror series, would we have it any other way? And lastly, we now know why the book is called "Severed." Gross. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Feb 11, 2012

    Part historical lesson and part societal diagnosis, Severed is, at its root, a good, old fashioned spooky story. For those who missed out on the single issues, the trade collection due in April is as much a must-get as Snyder's DC work. As will be his next collaboration with Tuft, if we're ever so lucky to get such a thing. Whether it's more Severed or something new, this is a team I'm hoping to see reunite soon. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Feb 10, 2012

    This issue's epilogue wraps back to an older Jack, where we left him from the prologue, hinting, in truest horror fashion, that perhaps this story isn't as finished as we'd though. In the letter columns issues prior Snyder and Tuft made mention they have more Severed in their pocket, and this issue's endgame certainly seems to allude to that. Whatever issues I have with the finale to the story, any disappointment I might have is made up with by the hope of more. While I wait, I can spend even more time getting lost in this creepy little world. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Feb 11, 2012

    The interesting part of this series is that it is a slow-burn up until the very last issue and then Snyder cuts loose. I think rereading this series in one sitting is going to be quite an experience. This is definitely a book worth checking out even if you are not a fan of the horror genre based on the strength of both the writing and the artwork. This is going to be a series that will be talked about for a long time to come. Snyder is rewriting how horror is handled in comic books. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Feb 12, 2012

    The framing narrative leaves a little to be desired, but the main story fires on all cylinders. Things are brutal, exciting, and the reader is always left guessing as to how everything's going to finish. The underwhelming conclusion certainly doesn't take away from what the team accomplished throughout these seven issues, but it is a little unsatisfying. Read Full Review
