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!

Our Day 3 artist is no stranger to hunting down monsters as he's the regular penciller on Devil's Due's horror/action book 'Spooks'. Adam Archer has Jason in the cross-hairs, but first he must navigate our 13 maniacal questions!


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

'Freddy vs. Jason'.  My favorite version of Voorhees.

2. What is your favorite horror movie?

No favorite,  'Tremors', 'Feast', 'Abominable', 'Dead Alive'.  There’s so many for different reasons.

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

Sleeping bag baseball, 'Jason X'.

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


5. Jason vs WHO? And why?

Chucky.  Chucky possesses hundreds of dolls and Jason goes to town.

7. Tell us about your most horrific camping experience.

None yet.

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?

Eyebrow enhancer and a rubber mallet.

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

April 15th

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’ve been working on 'Spooks' and 'Spooks: Omega Team' with the director Ryan Schifrin and writer Larry Hama. The second TPB will be out soon.

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

Another project with Ryan, called 'The Devil’s Handshake'. We’ll be posting info soon.

12. What's your dream project?

Nothing in particular, just the ability to someday get paid to do stories of my own.

13. Where can fans find your stuff on the web
