'The things you don't want to admit you feel': Scott Snyder previews 'Wytches' #3-exclusive

Over the past five years, Scott Snyder has quickly become one of the most popular writers in mainstream comics—largely due to his stellar, chart-topping run on Batman. But in his creator-owned work, Snyder has displayed a knack for gripping horror stories that double as explorations of very real and relatable anxieties and concerns. It’s horror steeped in humanity.

In Wytches, the Image Comics series Snyder co-created with the superstar art team of Jock and Matt Hollingsworth, the writer isn’t just completely reinventing witches—through the story of the Rook family’s dealings with the titular monsters, he’s diving deep into very real fears about being a parent, and the ugliness that hides in all of us.

In a characteristically honest fashion, Snyder sat down with EW to chat about where Wytches is going, what scares him as a parent, and the things that make normal people become the stuff horror is made of. Come for the interview; stick around for the sneak peek at this week’s Wytches #3.

After working with artist Jock (The Losers, Green Arrow: Year One) on the Batman story “The Black Mirror,” Snyder knew he had the perfect collaborator for this new horror series. The artist’s distinct style—a mix of solid storytelling and terrifyingly scratchy visuals—will no doubt scare readers silly. READ FULL STORY
