Screwed #1 Review

by Rob Caprilozzi

Writer: Tyler Kirkham, Keith Thomas
Artist: David Miller
Publisher: Zenescope
Release Date: June 5, 2013

Synopsis: A young woman awakens in a hospital covered in scars as if she had been taken apart and put back together again. Her mind is as fragmented as her body, leaving her delusional and seeing monsters everywhere. Is this the work of a serial killer, or something far worse? FBI Agent Erin Scott intends to help her find out, with or without the approval of her superiors in this visionary modern, mature re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend from acclaimed artist/creator Tyler Kirkham.

Our Thoughts: When I first saw this book I was immediately interested. There are scores of zombie comics these days but this….this is a Frankenstein-esque book!

The writing was solid throughout the first issue as we are introduced to our heroine and learn a bit about her mysterious past. We also are introduced to a very cool villain named Suture, who is a Frankenstein type creature himself.

The art fits the series to a T. David Miller delivers big time in the opening issue as there are monsters and blood galore.

Screwed reminds me of something that would fit perfectly into Marvel Comics Midnight Sons series released back in the 90’s. The book has a similar flow and an overall gritty feel.

Can’t wait for issue two as Screwed promises to be a fantastic horror series!
