Wytches Vol. 1
Wytches Vol. 1 | Scott Snyder
"It's fabulous. A triumph." -Stephen King"The most terrifying comic you've ever read." -MTV NewsWhen the Rooks family moves to the remote town of Litchfield, NH to escape a haunting trauma, they're hopeful about starting over. But something evil is waiting for them in the woods just beyond town. Watching from the trees. Ancient...and hungry. Collects WYTCHES #1-6.More praise for WYTCHES:"Dark and brutal, Wytches are like nothing horror fans have ever seen" -USA Today"In Wytches, the Image Comics series Snyder co-created with the superstar art team of Jock and Matt Hollingsworth, the writer isn't just completely reinventing witches--through the story of the Rook family's dealings with the titular monsters, he's diving deep into very real fears about being a parent, and the ugliness that hides in all of us." -Entertainment Weekly"An awesome and at times terrifying tale." -IGN"A great read.... the art is outstanding and certain panels may give you nightmares." -iO9"If you read the first 4 pages of WYTCHES, there's no turning back. Scary as fuck and impossible to put down. Bravo." -Joe Hill, Locke & Key"Monumental." -Bloody Disgusting"Snyder has tackled horror before, but Wytches sets out to be an entirely new level of scary. Aside from the fact that the monsters in the book are terrifying (artist Jock has done an amazing job realizing the creatures), Snyder's vision of witchcraft is as much about the deepest fears parents face as it is about spooky monsters in the woods." -Complex Magazine

This was an interesting graphic novel where the wytches are not what one would expect from classic lore. Instead they‘re more like demonic beings who influence those around them to do horrible things in a evil pact like relationship. Read my #Bookspin book for once. #BookspinBingo #scarathlon2021 #TeamHendrix #screamathon #wickedathon #BFC2021 +66 pts

I loved the concept, the father-daughter relationship and the art style here but it was honestly very hard to tell what was going on a lot of the time. I like mysterious but so many cliff hangers weren‘t cliff hangers cause I was just like ‘I‘ve forgotten who that was, am I scared of them?‘ It was fine but I probably won‘t continue the series.

I must admit, I was a little confused at first. The way the timeline jumps around isn‘t always very clear. It feels a little disjointed. I ended up figuring it out and enjoying the story, but I think the confusion could turn some people off from this. Overall I thought the story was pretty dark and interesting, and I enjoyed the artwork.

I'm not sure how I missed this when it came out, but it's amazing. Sailor and her family move to a new home, but there's something hunting her in the woods. The Wytches are these ancient monsters who kill their pledges and in return, they gift the townspeople with their heart's desire. I love graphic novels and I love horror and this was fantastic!! #graphicnovel #horror

I saw this & the cover instantly caught my eye. I‘m always hesitant to pick up graphic novels (seriously need to get over this) & Im freaking out because this was so above my expectations & absolutely creeped me out in the best way possible with the storyline & artwork. I finished this in one sitting; it‘s dark, raw, scary & couldn‘t put it down. Five stars - any horror fan will enjoy this gripping read. #bookswithbohemianyogini

For most of this, I seriously have no idea what was going on, it was so disjointed and the artwork didn‘t help either. Even the characters were confused.
Supposedly it was about ‘wytches‘, and this family who had moved to a new town after their daughter had been bullied....
Talk about a mess.

What better time than a readathon to knock off my #comicorgraphicnovel for #booked2019? It‘s a quick read, and a palate cleanser between longer novels.

Unfortunately, I find that most graphic novels are not for me. This is no exception. It was interesting, but not creepy or scary, and the characters were just a bit over the top. I have no plans to continue the series 🤷🏻‍♀️

⭐️⭐️⭐️

Eyelit Just as well, I don‘t even know that there are firm plans for continuation (much to my frustration, cause I liked this one 😂) 3y

Dig the art, but felt the story could have been better fleshed out. Scott Snyder‘s essays at the end of the graphic novel give more meaning to the Wytches world and take this from a so-so rating to a pick.

Wytches is an entertaining and spooky read for comic book and horror fans. The art style is specific for portraying dark tones, and it gives a sense of eerieness and the unimaginable. Furthermore, the story focuses on the consequences of selfishness, and the importance of inner strength in the face of danger.

I can't tell you how much I love my #witchpleaseswap 📦! @Chocamanda you are a great stalker, I mean gift giver. The tarot deck is amazing & exactly what I was hoping for. The ♒ print & vintage photos are so cool. The books were on my wish list. The #manpanion already stole most of the candy, but I threatened him to stay away from the oreos. The thins are sooooo good. Thanks!

This was last book read yesterday. Challenge was to read a book while wearing a hat. My hat has a Stephen King phrase from Dark Tower received from Nocturnal Reader box. This story had potential but it was confused. Developed in actions of what happened in the past and current time. It is about witches and creatures that hunted and kill people that were pledged. Illustrations were too obscured. I didn't understand the high rating in GR 2.95⭐️

This was surprisingly #creepy! The concept and drawings are really unique and frightening. These #Wytches are not your traditional #witch as I had expected. These are more like #nightmarish creatures with the powers of a traditional witch. Overall, I really enjoyed it and loved the illustrations!!

A pretty great horror comic. My only criticism is that while the art is beautiful and nightmarish, the style means that it can be hard to follow what's happening. But still, really good.

(Despite the fact that I question if the writers can point out Litchfield on a map. I know it's fiction, but why use a real place if you're going to make it so completely unlike it? It's a weird choice.)
