When I heard that Scott Snyder was returning to the horror genre (following American Vampire, Severed and in some respects The Wake) I was excited to see what he had in store.
Fortunately he didn’t disappoint. Wytches Vol.1 is creepy and atmospheric, aided in a big way by the beautiful paint splattered artwork by Jock. The story mainly follows a troubled family who find themselves hunted by the dark things that creep in the woods, and is broken into the 6 parts it was originally published in.
It’s predictably dark but unusually moving; as the story in volume 1 draws to a close, secrets are revealed and sacrifices are made, in a terrifying turn of events that I genuinely didn’t see coming.
So as you can tell, I enjoyed this book a lot and can’t recommend it highly enough – there’s a lovely gothic tone, and certain design choices have been made that presents a horror genre regular (witches), in a very unique and terrifying way.
