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!

Day 12: The day before Friday, and we're taking a right turn at Albuquerque...Rafael Albuquerque that is! The 'Superman/Batman' and 'Blue Beetle' artist tries his hand at horror just for your amusement, dear maniacs. But first he face our 13 searing questions...


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

Heh, to be honest, I have never watched any 'Friday the 13th' movie.

2. What is your favorite horror movie?

Probably '28 Days Later'.

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

I don't know, cause I've never seen one, but any moment of 'Jason X' might be funny.

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

Machete in the head, for sure.

5. Jason vs WHO? And why?

Jason Vs. Swamp Thing! Imagine if Swamp Thing lived in Crystal Lake! Would be epic!

6. Tell us about your unluckiest moment.

First time I came to San Diego, a "friend" of mine was supposed to reserve hotel for me. I arrived there, it was very close to Tijuana, in a very tough neighborhood. When I arrived there, the reservations  were never made. I had to go to a hostel two days later and sleep at the airport that night, cause everything was full. Was a "horror movie".

Today is hilarious.

7. Tell us about your most horrific camping experience.

Never been in camping, sorry.

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?

Ninja Sword, and a wolf skin over me, with my deformed face inside the wolf's mouth.

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

Groundhog Day

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 have been working on 'Blue Beetle', and more recently was announced as the 'Superman/Batman' artist. I have never done any horror story, but I had a lot of fun doing 'Savage Brothers', a zombie comedy I did for Boom! Studios, years ago.

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

I'm working on 'Superman/Batman', as i said. Also I'm working on a lot of creator-owner stuff, like 'Mondo Urbano', with Mateus Santolouco, and Eduardo Medeiros, and 'Cold Valley', that is a horror western. (Hey, a horror one!)

12. What's your dream project?

A very dark story with Batman, where I could write it too.

13.Where can fans find Rafael's stuff on the web

RafaelAlbuquerque.com is my personal home on the web. Check there for news and art.

MondoUrbano.com is where you'll find the rock band comics like "Overdose" and "Power Trio".

"Heh, to be honest, I have never watched any 'Friday the 13th' movie". = WEAK.

I am sure there are artists out there who have seen these movies, that would have loved to participate in this event. Which begs the question, why this guy? 

He's tied neck and neck with Kruse for the worst Jason IMHO.

How can you not even seen one Friday the 13th ? It's understandable if like growing up you're parents didn't allow that or something but if you're a comic book artist you've should've at least seen one damn it.
