Scott Snyder & Jock Reveal First Pages From Incoming Image Series ‘Wytches’

Writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock collaborated on what will likely go down as the best Dick-Grayson-as-Batman story, ‘The Black Mirror,’ so it just makes sense for them to work together again.

Their new series, Wytches, isn’t quite what you might expect. It’s a horror story — about witches, if you haven’t guessed — though Jock is often thought of as an artist who specializes in action. And it’s published by Image Comics, despite Snyder seeming firmly entrenched at DC for the past several years (though his series Severed was also at Image).

Snyder has established quite a track record as a horror-comics writer over the past few years, with Severed, American Vampire and The Wake under his belt. And it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to categorize The Black Mirror as a horror story of sorts.

Snyder explained what Wytches is all about to Entertainment Weekly:

Forget everything you know about witches. Because the truth is, witches, real witches, are something much, much scarier. Something you’ve never seen before. I’m collaborating with the super talented artist Jock on a new ongoing comic book series from Image Comics called Wytches. I don’t want to spoil anything, but let’s leave it at this—you’ll never think of witches the same way once you see Jock’s designs.

As for what you thought were witches? A wytch? A real wytch? Imagine, if you will, a bestial, primal creature that lives deep in the woods, waiting. We know nothing about them—they’re rarely seen. They are bigger than we are, stronger and smarter than we are, and they are gruesome and predatory. So, forget what you think you know. Leave the broomsticks for the kids. No magic, just horror.

EW also snagged a few preview pages. Here’s a taste:

As that last page notes, Wytches will start up in October.
