Comics I'm reading: *Wytches*

I finished the second issue of Scott Simon’s new Wytches comic, and I am liking it so far.

Part of it may be that I have a particular fondness for stories of eldritch horrors in the deep, dark woods. That is what grabbed hold of me when I first read H.P. Lovecraft back in high school, and it is no small part of the attraction with this book.

My only gripe so far is that the plot skips around a bit–in both place and time–and it is occasionally difficult to keep track of exactly where we are in the story at any given moment. I recall having the same complaint when I first started reading Snyder’s earlier series The Wake (which is fantastic, by the way). I got used to it in that book, though, so I am hopeful that same holds true here.
