Image Comics releases a horror comic which is much more common about witches and black magic, but a Halloween Special of Wytches Bad Egg.

I just read a lot of dark and horror comics just to fit on my genre for my work, but Image, however, publishes the comics that is more intimidating than anyone experienced. Wytches is the one that gets some spooky vibes that would send your spine chills down your ass. If witches weren’t bad enough, then get ready, this Halloween special comic will be an endurance for this year’s Halloween just to test your courage.

There’s a boy named Sebastian Clay the son of a soldier whose his father thought that there’s nothing special and soon called it “Standard Issue”. It’s very standard enough to know if you’re dealing with your boring everyday life like school, work or whatever you’re doing right now. Now for Sebastian, there is some weird shit going around him like he’s having a rough day. He almost got kidnapped by some stranger with a demon in the back of the truck, the wytches, and family problems. But what is really more disturbing is Jackson’s family life, even though his family is corrupted, Jackson is being infected by some virus. It’s pretty weird if you ask me, how can it be possible to have a story like this?

For a Halloween special, this comic is the most intimidating that you’d ever read from the past Wytches comic series. There’s no point that Sebastian’s friend was infected by some disease, but either way, their family is going up some measures and tried to kill these two boys. No matter how the story goes, it’s way weirder having a Halloween special like abducting the children, weird infections and stuff. There’s also some written journal by the author telling about the book that they made and memories of how he and his friends spent their lives in New York going to Forbidden Planet, a comic book store near the cinema at 14th street and played D&D at their friend’s house, but the rest is what he grew up in the last years in his childhood. Plus, there are storyboards of the comic, which it may come in handy when you’re trying to draw your thumbnails for you comic book series. Also, the art is more detailed that you’ve ever seen, but one of those pages was blood splatter on the background while reading the story and observing the artwork, the blood splatters are a no-brainer. If you rather read something that is terrifying for a Halloween special, then this is for you.
