A Review: SCREWED #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of SCREWED #1 from Zenescope Entertainment. Story is by Tyler Kirkham, and Keith Thomas writes and draws.

This is the most interesting Jane Doe case to come around in quite a while. It seems our young lady feeds on electricity, and then tears through the hospital like it was paper. Erin, the FBI agent on the scene, then gets kicked off the case by a mysterious new agent named Simon. And then there’s Suture, who is obviously not a nice person, and seems to know more about our Jane Doe than she does herself.

This book is a great example of what Zenescope does best – they pluck a small theme out of a horror classic and create a whole new world from it. At first there’s very little to tell us that this is in any way related to Shelley’s classic, or at least the famous film version. But it builds and grows, and soon it’s obvious. And this issue introduces us to some weird but interesting new characters, too.

Concept, story and art are all working beautifully together in this book. I really like where this seems to be going.

SCREWED #1 is available now at your LCS or online at zenescope.com.
