It’s Friday the 13th, the perfect time to check out our recommended title “Jason vs Leatherface” plus everything that’s new in horror comics this week.
Kyle Laugh of Longlivethevoid.com here with another week of new horror comic book and a great series selection you’ll be sure to love!
Something I’ve been hearing a lot lately is talk of people wanting to see horror icons crossing over à la ‘Freddy Vs. Jason’. Although films of this nature are likely never going to see the light of day, few people are actually aware that many of these crossovers have taken place in the form of a graphic novel.
With that said, this weeks pick is none other than “Jason Vs. Leatherface”.
The story is simple but fun. The pair meet and realize they have many things in common. This leads them to build a relationship together, but things begin to leak through the cracks. Soon, the duo become sworn enemies.
I don’t want to give much away, but this is a lot of fun for anybody looking to see either Jason or Leatherface in a different form with a new storyline!
