WYTCHES conjures rave reviews
October 7, 2014
The first issue of the new horror series has sold out and will fly into second printing
The first issue of one of the most haunting and anticipated new horror series of the year, WYTCHES, by Scott Snyder (SEVERED, Batman) and Jock (SNAPSHOT, Batman) has conjured praise from critics and fans alike and left much of the comics industry terrified and unnerved. It has sold out completely at the distributor level and is flying straight to a second printing to meet customer demand.
Across the globe, century after century, men and women were burned, drowned, hanged, tortured, imprisoned, persecuted, and murdered for witchcraft. None of them were witches. They died protecting a terrible and hidden truth: witches—real witches—are out there. They are ancient, elusive, and deadly creatures that are rarely seen and even more rarely survived.
Masters of horror Snyder and Jock unveil WYTCHES #1, introducing readers to a world of unimaginable fear in this special OVERSIZED FIRST ISSUE with 30 pages of story and no ads for just $2.99.
Praise for WYTCHES:
“These weren't going to be the bulbous nose, broom-riding Halloween caricatures. These witches are a cannibalistic, skeletal race that hide in the forest, gifting their naturalistic powers to greedy folk who pledge other people in exchange. And those poor saps are doomed to be food for the creatures.” —NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
“A story that will horrify readers on every level.” —COMIC BOOK RESOURCES
“I read it. I loved it. it scared the living crap out of me.” —CBS MAN CAVE
“An awesome and at times terrifying tale.” —IGN
“I don't read a lot of comics these days but I read a little bit of WYTCHES--and a little more…And before I realized what I was doing I'd read the first issue. And now really can't wait for the second. I loved it.” —Mike Mignola, Hellboy
“The scariest thing you will read all year.” —COMICBOOK.COM
