Wytches: Issue 4

Wytches_04

This comic continues to deliver quality psychological horror. In this issue, as Sailor’s parents continue searching for her, it seems like their grip on sanity is beginning to slip. The creative team does something that works really well. They splice together fragments of storyline to instill a sense of confusion. As I read through this, I felt like Sailor, trapped in a dark space surrounded by macabre images, struggling to get out, but unable to. All the while, unable to shake the feeling of fear and dread.

I feel like I should be writing more about this issue, but frankly, I am at a loss for words. Probably because, for me, the issue is more about creating a sense of fear as opposed to telling a narrative tale, so while the story is progressing, for me, the story is overshadowed by the feeling that the images and structure of the comic evoke. For me, that’s the real artistry in this graphic series.

If you are following this tale, I would love to hear your thoughts.

    I’m not reading it right now, but your recommendations are making me want to. Unfortunately, I’m trying to figure out what would be the cheapest way to do that right now, and it seems Comixology is my best bet (that still being above my budget). 😦 Right now, I’m stuck with what Scribd can offer (comics that are at least four years old, and no DC or Image).

    • Hey Alex. It’s a great comic, but not worth straining your budget for. There are lots of things I’d like to buy, but like you, I have to pick and choose. I’m a music freak too, so I love concerts, but they are very expensive now and I cannot justify paying exorbitant money to see anyone. I tell people the first time I saw the Rolling Stones I paid $5, so it’s hard for me to justify spending more than $50 to see anyone.

      If I find any inexpensive ways to get the comic, I’ll let you know. Cheers!!

      Jeff
