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.
When 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, Volume 1 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
The Rook family moved into a new town hoping for a new start. Especially for their teenage daughter Sailor, who had a horrific and scary incident with another girl from school. Sailor and her father are close and enjoy each other sense of humor. Her Dad uses the humor to distract Sailor from her anxieties. Sailor has more than just anxiety, she feels like something is after her. Sailor feels like the thing that took the girl from school is after her. Unfortunately, she is not wrong. Evil wytches from the woods are after Sailor because she has been pledged to them. Which means they get to eat her. This is one of the darkest takes on witches I have seen in a while. I liked the connection that Sailor had with her father. It was depicted and developed nicely. The witches are creepy as was the character that helped the father. The art of the wytches is scary but it is also not defined that well. I realized that is to make them even creepier and that you know they are in the dark even though you can not directly see them. I just found that a little annoying. I like to see a story done on how the wytches got there or have they always been there. There were characters I wished had made it out in the end but even real life does not give you choices to pick those who live. Not sure where the story goes after this but I can not wait to find out.
This series is a wonderful start to the world of Wytches! It takes a sharp turn from the normal myths you find in fiction focusing on witches. The only spell cast here is by the writers and art work that's sure to captivate you. Just remember, sometimes the greatest monsters are humans
Well, I heard nothing about this. Except for suggestions of what to read next. This was among the titles. This volume was creepy. Not scary I mean maybe a little. But mostly creepy. And that art style. The art was really good. Story as well.
What the heck was happening with this graphic novel? The cover was very deceiving because inside was total chaos. Let me start off by saying that I was not impressed by the illustrations, as a whole. With great detail, the illustrations tried to support the novel but it was the use of color and dark lines that left me cringing as I looked around the pages. Splatters, splotches, drips and colors-on-top-of-colors rained down upon the pages and I was left wondering what type of message I was supposed to be obtaining from this color disaster. I was screaming from frustration and I don’t think that was the message they wanted me to get. I didn’t care for the storyline either. It seemed to pop around a lot. Where exactly was this story headed? This novel wasn’t for me and I will not be continuing with the next one in this series.
