13 comic book artists. One scary dude in a hockey mask...

Each day Comics2Film @ Mania.com presents a new original work by a comic book artist in anticipation of the opening of the new 'Friday The 13th' movie!

The body count escalates on Day 2 of 13 FACES OF JASON as Andy Kuhn, the co-creator of 'Firebreather' and '10' takes on Horror's most notorious masked man. Before we get to Andy's killer rendering of Mr. Voorhees let's make him answer 13 personal, probing questions...


1. What is your favorite Friday the 13th / Jason movie and why?

The first 'Friday the 13th' is the best. That was the first appearance of Jason Voorhees. Untoppable!

2. What is your favorite horror movie?

I have too many favorites to name just one.  A couple of my recent favorites are the haunting and lyrical Swedish vampire film 'Let the Right One In' and an awesome American made low-budget monster movie called 'Splinter.'

3.  What is your favorite moment in all of the Friday the 13th film, comics, TV, etc stories?

The Crispin Glover dance sequence from Part 4: 'The Final Friday'.

4. Arrow through the throat or machete in the head?

I gotta go with the arrow. It really freaked me out when I first saw it. It came from behind and the skin was all stretchy. NASTY!

5.  Jason vs WHO? And why?

I would like to see Jason vs. Blacula. That movie would be TIGHT!

6. Tell us about your unluckiest moment.

My unluckiest moment was getting sent this questionnaire. You know how much I hate typing, you bastard!

7. Tell us about your most horrific camping experience.

I have never gone camping in my life, and it’s all because of these damn movies.

8. If you ever decided to become an iconic horror figure, what would you wear on your face and what would your weapon of choice be?

I would wear a bloody version of Loverboy lead-singer Mike Reno’s head band. Then I would stab guys in 80’s cover bands to death with a pointy guitar. You gotta’ know I’d be “Killin’ for the Weekend!”

9 .On which special day would you do your killing?

All through the month of ROCKTOBER.

10.  But, sadly, you're not an iconic horror figure, just a comic book artist. Tell us about some of your recently-published works...

I am currently drawing 'Firebreather' which is a book Phil Hester and I created. It’s about a half human half dragon teenager whose parents have shared custody which is overseen by the government. The Cartoon Network is currently making a 'Firebreather' movie-of-the-week as a pilot for a possible 'Firebreather' TV series. It will air on Cartoon Network sometime next year.

11. What's next? Tell us about your upcoming work...

More 'Firebreather', and killing more dudes in 80’s cover bands.

12.What's your dream project?

Drawing anything written by Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman.

13. Where can fans find your stuff on the web

You can check me out  at kuhnart.blogspot.com or andykuhn.deviantart.com.

My seller name on eBay is “kuhnart”. I usually have several pieces of art up on eBay at any given time.

Very soon I'll have art available at CadenceComicArt.com

lol Loverboy headband and killing all the 80's cover bands now that's funny & creative and I would love to see that.

Gotta love the Crispin Glover dance also liked it when one of the twins is standing by the window and Jason just punches through the glass and grabs her ass and throws her lol.Oh and let's not forget the mildy fat girl just minding her own business eating a banana and Jason just walking by killing her too lol.Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I'm sorry, who is this Andy guy?

He likes Crispin Glover's dance scene in "Part 4: The Final Friday."  I don't recall that one, though I did see Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter. 

He also says the first Friday the 13th was the best because it was Jason's first appearance.  Well just technically he is correct since they had Jason drowning in the flashback and then the end where he jumps out of the water, but that's hardly the Jason we all think of.  When you think Jason the first image that usually comes to mind is the killer in a hockey mask (which he didn't even have until the 3rd movie).

Hmmm, is it really that hard to catch the essence of Jason on paper? Unimpressed yet again. Next.

Crispin Glover's dance scene from part 4 is pretty funny though.

Lol you ok McKracken?Repeat after me, goosefraba. lol

didnt fix nuthin. I got an email from Chippy today saying that I shoulnt complain about the inner workings of the site in non-bug-related threads... ok i wont do that anymore... i promise. :)

i'm actually all better now that I listened to that Christian Bale rant on the set of Terminator IV, man thats histeriacal, thats gotta be the funniest thing I've ever heard... even better than my own rants.

sigh... still not fixed.

Yea definitely didn't fix this site which was offline for like a day and a half and nothing was done and here i was hoping it was gonna go back to the way the site use to be.

I'm in total agreement that was hilarious.I think it's funny that people say that is pre-madonna when really he's not I mean the guy stayed under the radar cause he didn't want to be this big celebrity and now it's harder for him to do that since he played Batman and he still manages to stay low key so kudos Bale.I can't blame him for losing his cool like that cause I'm sure I would've done the samething.
