Here's another Freddy Krueger story from Wildstorm's 'Nightmare on Elm Street' comics (published under "New Line's Tales of Horror #1").  In my opinion it absolutely nails Freddy as a  character.

Warning for the usual violence and gore.

Freddy discovers that there's another serial killer in Springwood wearing the trademark fedora, sweater and claw and is pissed that someone is ripping him off on his territory.



Otis reveals that he has been collecting newspaper articles and documents that expose Freddy and if he doesn't enter a command on his computer everyday they'll be sent to every major news outlet and everyone will leave Springwood.







That night Freddy pays Otis another visit.







One minor problem I have with the ending is Freddy depends on people being afraid of him and knowing who he is -- that was one of the major plot points of "Freddy vs Jason". So making everyone think that all of his killings were by a copycat wouldn't help him at all.

For some reason I do like Freddie grumbling about what an effed up world it is these days.

As for the ending, I see your point, the copycat only needed to kill that one kid and that would have been enough to get rid of him, assigning him the blame for Freddies other, frequently impossible, murders is a bit out of character.

"Guy's guts have been clawed out. Clear case of suicide."

"Uh, boss..."

"Clear. Case."

Freddy is complaining about the world when he has fans?

REALLY?!?

I'm normally not a fan of the art in these horror books, but this isn't half-bad

I wonder what it's like being a CSI in Springwood let alone the coroner.
"Well this guy would up inside of his waterbed. Hmmm, obviously a suicide."
