Wytches by Scott Snyder - Jock (Illustrator), Matt Hollingsworth (colorist), Clem Robins (letterer)

2 Stars
Wytches promised to be “dark” and “horrifying” – “creepier” and more “bone-chilling” than readers could imagine. Uhhhhhhh . . . .

When I first heard about this I was all over trying to get my hands on a copy. I mean just look at the cover art . . .

Unfortunately my library spends all of their excess funds stocking pornography (not complaining) rather than new graphic novels. Sadly, once I finally got a chance to read Wytches, it didn’t take me long to figure out that I was going to find the story to be a real piece of . . .

I appreciate the fact that the backstory was actually explained in this first volume, but it could have been done in waaaaaay less than half the amount of pages. There was a whole lot of “chit” chat with not a lot of action. I’m not a fan of filler to begin with and when the filling consists of pretty uggo artwork . . . . .

It’s even worse. But what do I know? I read everything wrong. I also write notes to myself like "WTF?" and "I hate this" that somehow don't manage to conjure up real deep reviews.

Obviously I don’t have a lot to say about this selection. What I do have a lot to say about is some of the people of Goodreads. If you’ve been here long you’ve probably either experienced, or at least witnessed, the not-so-pretty side of the GR population – so when someone flips the script and shows they are simply amazing even an old hag like me gets all . . .

Wytches (and several other) graphic novels were purchased by a member here and then routed on to Shelby who then forwarded them to me. This one will be making its way to a little Harbinger of Blood-Soaked Rainbow next – continuing the chain of the most awesome of book nerdy pay it forwards.

  1. When I read a book that I don't like but it has a cover that nice, I still consider it a win. It that weird? Lol

    Nice review! I will totally be using the word "chit" as a replacement curse from now on.
