* IdiotBall: Sam goes into one of the most ridiculously obvious traps ever despite having been established as far too smart and suspicious to fall for it.

Added DiffLines:

* DiabolusExNihilo: "Fisher" has no backstory. His real name (if he even has one) is unknown. No explanation for his seeming immortality. Exactly who or what he is is a complete mystery.

A horror GraphicNovel published by ImageComics and written by Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft, and illustrated by Attila Futaki.

''Severed'' tells the story of Jack Garron, a twelve-year old boy in 1916 who leaves his adopted mother in search of his biological father, a wandering fiddler. Jack soon meets another vagrant named Sam and a strange man who offers to help him reach his dad. Little does he know that the man is actually a monster who feeds on children...

The comic is noted for being very disturbing and atmospheric. Recommended for any horror fan looking for a good scare.

Tropes:

*BatmanGambit: Fisher pulled one off. [[spoiler: He pretended to be Jack's father writing to him in order to get Jack to come find him]]
*BodyHorror: "Fisher" basically breathes this trope. For one, he wears fake teeth that hide his true, razor sharp fangs. For another, he [[spoiler: hangs Jack up on a hook and cuts off his arm to eat it]]
*ChekhovsGun: The bear trap that Fisher shows Jack and Sam. [[spoiler: Jack uses it to slow Fisher down after the latter reveals his true colors]]
*ChekhovsPerson: Jack's adopted mother
*EvilMentor: Fisher to Jack
*GenderReveal: [[spoiler: Sam]]
*GeneHunting: Jack learning that he was left on his "mother's" doorstep as a child is what kicks off the plot, as he searches for his biological father.
*GoryDiscretionShot: the panels progressively zoom outward when [[spoiler: Fisher murders and devours Sam]] so the reader never actually sees it happen.
*ImAHumanitarian: The main antagonist of the story cannibalizes children [[spoiler: so he can feed on their dreams]]
*ReallySevenHundredYearOld: Fisher looks like he's in his 50's to 60's, but his dialogue indicates that he is much older than that. [[spoiler: And 40 years later, he hasn't aged a day]]
*SweetPollyOliver: [[spoiler: Samantha]] dresses like a boy because life on the road is safer for men.
