Just got done reading Jason Vs Leatherface.
And I must say...it wasn't what I expected. The story was nothing amazing...but it was interesting and kind of fun watching these two horror movie baddies interact. I've often wondered what would happen if the Hewitt family ever met up with someone that as terrifying as them.
Sadly the story explores this notion very loosely... and for some reason focuses more on giving Jason this weird, emo like personality.
Plus it makes Leatherface look really crap.
The basic story is that Jason runs into Leatherface in the woods and is invited back to his house after Jason cuts this guys head off and proves that he is not "Meat" but "one of them." We then watch Jason hanging out and at some levels makeing friends with Latherface. We are also treated to some of Jason's thoughts as he asks him self such questions as "I have killed everyone I have ever met...why am I letting these people live?"
Compared to the Freddy Vs Jason Vs Ash comic series, this books seems very mid-core. As a fan of both these guys though... I found it nice to have. But it could have been so much better. The writing is a bit meh and the art goes from being alright to weirdly cartoonish. Nothing like the recent stuff being dished out. But it was published back in 1995 by some company called Topps comic that is no longer around...so I'll cut it some slack.
The covers are awesome though and I'm glad I got them for that alone.
Being a huge fan of Leatherface...I'm gonna try and get my self another comic called "Texas chainsaw Massacre: About a Boy" which is the story of little Leatherface growing up into Big Leatherface.
