Gr 10 Up
Most anyone knows the Friday the 13th films as one-note slasher movies. This comic of the same name borrows the conceit to provide the best computer-enhanced drawings of blood and gore imaginable. However, there is almost nothing to the story beyond the briefest of setups for each killing. A group of older teens, tasting liberty for the first time, conspires to have fun at Camp Crystal Lake. A horrible murderer, always presented in maximum spookiness, never rests until all of the visitors meet their fate. Every character introduced, more or less, dies; heads split apart, body cavities are vacated, etc. Considering that and the voluptuous nudes on nearly every other page, this book doesn't belong in schools, and it will never last in public libraries.
