And that’s the big DC scalp of the night. Scott Snyder has written for Image before, but not before he hit the big time…

Scott Snyder is here to discuss the new book he is doing with Jock: Wytches. The new book goes back to Snyder’s love of reinventing mythological and folkloric creatures. His goal is for this to be the darkest, scariest book he’s ever done. He wants to make you “afraid to go into the woods.” The Wytches are primal cannibalistic creatures that were copied and worshipped by historical witches.
Updated from press release:
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.
