Friday The 13th: Book Two Reviews
Pamela Voorhees' "secret origin" story was really good. Not the other ones.
After finishing the first Friday the 13th collection and thoroughly hating it, I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. I dreaded that it would be more of the same senseless, idiotic slasher nonsense, but then I saw Jason Aaron's name on the cover and quickly gained a bit of hope. Not to mention the fact that each of these four stories is either 1 or 2 issues long in here, not leaving a lot of time to futz around or waste time.Unfortunately, only the Jason Aaron factor ended up actually doing any good in this case. For the most part, I very much did not enjoy this book. The incredibly male writers seem to love the brilliant storytelling devices of A) rape, B) spousal abuse and C) crazy and/or helpless women. It's pretty remarkable how similar each of these stories is in that regard (minus Jason Aaron's, again, as he offered the only good entry in this mess). It's like each writer is unaware of any other ways to show that people are horrible, and relies totally on their characters being utterly, completely depraved to show that they are "bad."Also, don't count on any of the first three stories having any sort of metaphorical or moral core, despite the fact that they seem to think they do. The stories are almost structured like redemption tales, only at some point Jason shows up and hacks every living thing to pieces. If it wasn't so stupid it would be pretentious. Each of these stories tries so hard to be "better" than a slasher flick that they end up just missing the whole slasher aspect almost completely. They're all ultimately insufferable and meaningless.Then we get to Jason Aaron's story, which is the only reason this book is getting 2 stars instead of 1. It's so interesting to see a writer clearly stand head and shoulders above his peers in the same book. Instead of a bunch of dumb, empty "character work," Aaron just focuses on writing a violent, action-packed slashfest with great dialogue and even a little bit of heart. It's fun as hell, completely over the top, and totally fits in the ridiculous Friday the 13th world. I really enjoyed this one, and would recommend it to horror fans on its own. If this collection is the only way you can read it, then I guess go for it, but I would instead recommend just reading it in its original, 2-issue form to save yourself the trouble of having all this other crap to look at.
I didn't want to like this book, really. But it can't be helped, I love the slasher (they say the first step on the road to getting well is admitting that you're sick).In a way, the graphic novel medium is better suited to the slasher than a horror movie. You can add much-needed depth to the story, go farther with the outlandish gore, and it's always on pause! That said, this volume didn't make the most of all that potential. It was merely entertaining, and clearly not for everyone.
This book contains 4 tales about Jason. The first, is basically Pamela Voorhees' origin story, and is pretty well done, and even fits into the continuity of the first film. The second is a great little old comic style story about a girl who just can't take it. Third is the only weak story, putting more of the blame on the location of crystal lake than Jason and his mom. The last tale is a simple story of a boy and his undead serial killer buddy Jason. Very fun, great fun. A nice complement to the first volume of Friday comics from Wildstorm.
You get what you expect from this book. Redundant stories about Jason Vorhees and his mother taking revenge out on camp counselors, people having sex, and abusive people. Why four stars? The stories are well written with good art work. Nothing out of the ordinary, but an entertaining slasher comic.

Dont fuck with Jason. He doesn't care that your boyfriend beats you. If you're a skank then you're dead.
The first tale describing Pamela's story was fun. Second story had good art, thurd story was entertaining and the final story was a good premise done totally wrong, Jason has NEVER killed a child :-/
