Comic Book / Friday the 13th Special

Go To

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

A brother and sister duo who own the land around the former Camp Crystal Lake try to build a new resort there, but their efforts are sabotaged by the undead killer Jason Voorhees, who prowls the area. They arrange a group of soldiers to hunt him down, setting the stage for a massacre.

Friday the 13th Special provides examples of:

  • Affectionate Nickname: The two teens who try to have sex in their car call each other "huggy wuggy bear" and "honey bunny".
  • And Show It to You: Jason strikes his arm through a soldier, grabbing his heart in the process, just as the guy tells a younger soldier how the younger generation has "no heart".
  • Auto Erotica: Two teens try to have sex in their car as the soldiers hunt down Jason nearby. They are forced to flee the vehicle once one of them falls from the sky and crashes through its hood.

  • Half the Man He Used to Be: One of the soldiers who're after Jason is cleaved in half vertically by him. Other gets cut in half horizontally with his own rifle.
  • Healing Factor: A grenade is thrown at Jason's feet, which takes a portion of his upper body as it explodes. He then grows his lost flesh back in seconds, and attacks the guy who threw the thing.
  • Helicopter Blender: After her helicopter falls on a tree and she drops from it, Laura thinks she is safe from Jason as she is in the waters of Crystal Lake, where he drowned. Jason then throws his machete at the tree that holds the helicopter, causing it to come off and fall on her, and she's sliced to pieces by its still-spinning blades.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: One of the alternate covers shows Jason striking a metal pole through a victim, and other shows a soldier impaled on a tree branch.

  • Improvised Weapon: With a helicopter's heavy machine gun bearing on him, Jason rips off a spring duck from a playground and throws it lethally at the vehicle's pilot Blake, which brings the thing crashing down on a tree.
  • Motive Rant: Laura rants about how the events after Jason's drowning eventually killed her father from heartache, all the while she throws grenades at him.
  • Off with His Head!:
    • Jason punches one soldier's head off with such force that it bounces between several trees before it lands on his feet. He crushes it under his foot as he moves on to hs next victim.
    • Jason hits the soldier named Ken on top of his head (the sound effect being "FAM") so hard that it goes through his body, and comes out of his ass (the written sound effect of that being "SWAQ!").
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Crossed with Killed Mid-Sentence as Jason manages to get Laura killed just as she's telling him with punctuation that he can't get her.
    Laura: You. Can't. Get. M—
