Comic Book / Friday the 13th: Bloodbath

Go To

A three-issue horror miniseries set in the Friday the 13th universe by Avatar Press, released in 2005.

Group of people calling themselves The Organization have need for the capture of the undead killer Jason Voorhees so that they can study him. They have hired a man named McLintock to do it, who sets up several youths to clean up Camp Crystal Lake to lure Jason out while the soldiers under his command are sanding by.

The comic's story is continued in the one-issue comic Friday the 13th: Fearbook.


Friday the 13th: Bloodbath provides examples of:

  • Death by Sex: Invoked. Knowing that sex lures Jason out to kill, McLintock arranges several promiscous youths (all orphans to deter any questions) to Crystal Lake to lure him out to be captured for The Organization.
  • Ear Ache: As McLintock is about to have Violet and Rich killed, Jason's frozen body gets loose from his harness that's lifting him up. Violet uses the opportunity to tackle McLintock, steal his knife, and bite his ear.
  • Groin Attack: As Jason chase him and Violet, Rich stabs him in the groin with a knife. He just pulls it out, and continues to pursue them.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be:
    • With one swing of his machete, Jason slices two would-be lovers in half horizontally.
    • Later when Jason rises up from the buring wreckage of a helicopter, he does so with one of its propellers in his hands, and slices three soldiers in two with it.

  • Human Popsicle: McLintock's men spray Jason with liquid nitrogen to freeze him where he stands, so that he can be delivered to The Organization.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: McLintock's assisant Johnny finds Ellie and Kim making out with each other, and decides to stay and watch. He is soon ambushed and killed by Jason, who cleaves him half crotch-first.
    Johnny: I suppose I should call this in, but a minute or two won't hurt.
  • Off with His Head!: In the end, two hunters come across Jason, thawing from the ice. One of the them gets his head sliced off.
  • Skinny Dipping: Jason's first victims are two youths who decide to swim naked in Crystal Lake and have sex afterwards.
  • Token Minority Couple: All youths who are hired to clean the camp soon find a match for each other, and the African-American Kim and Deon end up with each other.
