[Review] Wytches: Bad Egg Halloween Special (One-Shot)

Scott Snyder’s 2015 comic Wytches was one of the most popular horror comics to come out in an era of great horror comics and for 3 years fans have been clamoring for more. Fans anticipated the release of Wytches Vol 2 in 2018 but instead received this Halloween special one-shot. A good consolation prize but a consolation prize nontheless.

This comic is a prequel to the events of Wytches Vol 1 and follows the “Irons” family of wytch hunters go against a group of “High Horn” wytches in their small suburban town. The wytch-hunter in training is Sebastian who has had a life of upheaval, disorder and also poisoning micro-doses to train him as a proper hunter. But like any normal pre-teen, he just wants to hang out with his friends and race toy cars and this leads him to a crisis of conviction between the life he has and the life he wants. It all comes crashing down in the final act, with more than one emotional twist that leaves you pitying Sebastian for the kind of person he might grow into.

The art is again illustrated by Jock, which features his signature stained-glass-ink-blot style.
