At Image Expo 2014, Scott Snyder and Jock announced that they were re-teaming for a new creator-owned comic titled “Wytches.” Last week, the first preview for the horror-infused title were revealed, and today, CBR has the exclusive debut of Jock’s cover and the full solicitation text for Issue #1.
Snyder described their new series to CBR News as “the most black and twisted horror I can imagine.” “Horror is about looking at the things you’re most afraid of, personally — about yourself, the things you’re worried are true — and turning them into a monster. ‘Wytches’ for me hit a raw nerve. The way we’re designing them, its almost imagining that everything you know about witches is just the surface. In ‘Wytches,’ those people — the ones persecuted, the ones with the stigma thrown onto them, are just the people who know about the witches and worship them. In reality, witches themselves are something much more primal and bestial.”
Check out the cover and solicitation text for “Wytches” #1 below, and stay tuned to CBR for more from Snyder and Jock.
