Camp Counselor Jason

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

If you have not heard of this webcomic, then be prepared to be enlightened.  Jason Voorhees Kills with kindness in Friday the 13th Fan Comic. Ducktales animator Janie Lee puts a new positive spin on Friday the 13th killer Jason Voorhees in Camp Counselor Jason. 


Animator Janie Lee, who has worked on Scooby-Doo, Apple and Onion, and Ducktales, has transformed Jason Voorhees into Camp Counselor Jason. He, together with Pamela, is there to ensure the safety and happiness of the campers. Even if he must use a machete to accomplish it.


Jason, who wears the intimidating hockey mask with his new, brightly colored camp counselor uniform, will do whatever he must to keep his patrons safe from outsiders. Moving his attention away from terrorizing and murdering unsuspecting teens, Jason Voorhees now wiles away his time working as a friendly counselor. What makes Camp Counselor Jason so appealing is the potential for comedy while still playing with classic horror tropes. Shifting the perspective on Jason so what made him terrifying now makes him lovable. 


Lee is hopeful that she will one day be able to turn the slasher comic into an animated series, something which certainly has a lot of potential based on the comic book artwork she has created. Blumhouse Productions is very vocal about them wanting to bring Friday the 13th back to the big screen. However, the future of Friday the 13th remains uncertain due to an ongoing legal battle surrounding the main antagonist, Jason Voorhees. The series has become known for the spine-chilling presence of the hockey mask murderer, the character was not actually introduced in this form until the third movie. The first Friday the 13th writer, Victor Miller, did not create this version. Miller has won the first court battle. So, unless an agreement is made between the two parties, any reboot would either have to ditch the famous killer or the franchise's equally famous title.

For now, fans are at an impasse. But we do have the overwhelming niceness of Camp Counselor Jason. This comes to us from Janie Lee's official Instagram account.
