Scott Snyder And Jock Branch Out On Their Own With A New Series Over At Image Comics Called: “Wytches”

Ok, I’ve JUST heard about this and I literally had to sit down because my head is spinning.  Two of the biggest names in comics, (as well as two of our favorites of all-time) are combining their talents and collaborating on an all new series.  Nope, it’s not for DC and you are wrong again if you guessed it’s for Marvel.

The extraordinary talents of Scott Snyder and Jock will be heading to Image Comics to do their own series called “Wytches.”  Snyder stunned the crowd with the announcement on  Thursday at the Image Expo 2014 in San Francisco.

This all new, creator-owned title will hit stores in September and if you think they are rehashing your common tales about witches, boy are you wrong.  Snyder says, “We want you to not be able to go to sleep because you’re afraid that something is coming for you.”

Snyder also had this to say about collaborating with Jock again after their successful outing on The Black Mirror and in Detective Comics: “He was the only person I asked to do the book.  The thing I love so much about his art is that it’s so moody in the way that he can create a feeling, an atmosphere, with just a few strokes. He picks the most destabilizing angles and the strangest distances. He can create a sense of dread and terror.”

Here is a look at the official press release and that is it, I’m preordering the entire series TOMORROW!  See you at the comic book store!

Scott Snyder (Batman, Superman Unchained, SEVERED) and Jock (Batman, Wolverine, SNAPSHOT) will team up for a new, ongoing horror series called WYTCHES. Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying.

WYTCHES takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before. “I like taking classic monsters and reimagining them in a fresh, contemporary, and much scarier way,” said Snyder.

Snyder and Jock have worked together previously on the Batman story “The Black Mirror” in the pages of Detective Comics and Snyder knew from the get-go that he wanted Jock on board.

“It’s great to finally have Scott Snyder back at Image,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “We loved working with Scott on SEVERED, and he has only gotten better since then, so it’s really wonderful that he’s teaming up with Jock on what is without a doubt one of the creepiest books we have ever published.”

WYTCHES is a new ongoing fantasy horror series coming to Image Comics in 2014. You’ve been warned.
