    Parents in some backwater town are feeding their kids to the Wytches (weird, tree-inhabiting creatures) for Horror Reasons – will our protagonist, Some Kid, survive and who can he trust?

After a three year break since the first book, Scott Snyder, Jock and Matt Hollingsworth are back for the next chapter in their dismal series, Wytches, with Bad Egg. The only thing horrific about this Halloween Special is how horrifically boring it is! Like most of Snyder’s comics these days, it’s insanely overwritten with Some Kid spouting some of the most contrived, unconvincing inner speechifying you’ll ever have the misfortune to trudge through. The book’s subtitle is cringingly and artlessly shoved into the feeble plot, the concepts of Wytches and their procurers haven’t suddenly become compelling and the terminology is still dumb. I can’t take anyone saying “high horn” remotely seriously! The horror isn’t scary, the story is uninteresting – the two boys race toy cars while waiting for Horror Stuff to happen and that’s their miserable storyline - and predictable – gee, wonder if Some Kid’s mate is doomed?! Colourist Matt Hollingsworth still thinks he’s Jackson Pollock, splattering the page with colour blots and obscuring Jock’s unremarkable art in the process – brilliant! The splatters hide the Wytches’ reveal, which might be intentional to some degree, but was still annoying. I just hate the visuals on this title. Apparently Some Kid will play a role in the second Wytches arc due next year hence this largely unnecessary Halloween Special. Not that it matters anyway as I’m abandoning this series after this terrible comic has confirmed that I don’t care about any of this at all! Scott Snyder continues his downwards spiral of near-unreadable comics – a Bad Egg indeed. And, like any bad egg, this one stinks!

    Man, these guys don't hold back. WYTCHES returns with a bruuuutal short tale, one that is both more and less engaging than the initial volume. On the one hand, it does great work deepening the mythology of the wytches and this world. On the other, it's not as shocking as the first volume (even as it still achieves some shocking and frightening moments) in its spookiness. Still, a great All Hallows Read.

    What was I thinking? Why did I bother with this book? I didn't even really liked vol.1 for chrissakes! I dunno. Maybe I wanted to give one last chance to Snyder. But nah. The guy's spent and isn't on his way to recovery. Sebastian, 12 yo, is from a family of Wytch hunters. He hunts families of Wytch familiars who feed their kids to newborn Wytch babies. And it's boring as shit. The 12 yo speaking like 3 times his age got old on me after a few pages. The hard-ass mother might as well be called Sarah What was I thinking?

The 12 yo speaking like 3 times his age got old on me after a few pages. The hard-ass mother might as well be called Sarah Connor but I've seen that movie already and the best friend had so much "victim" written all over him I wanted to warn him. His parents were so onctuously ominous it was laughable. Not to mention the mother with an eye-patch! This one wins the cake! I suppose I should have been thrilled, maybe even scared, but I was too busy thinking about my tax declaration while reading the book. Art-wise Jock is still on ugly autopilot while Matt Hollingsworth is again color blind and pours blotches of shitty pastels all over the page for no particular reason. Wytches season 2 will be without me.

    Nezklamalo, i když po tříleté přestávce by člověk čekal přeci jen něco víc. Tohle byl poměrně jednoduchý a přímočarý příběh, konečně ale odhalil trochu z mytologie kolem titulních příšer. Nezbývá než vydržet do příštího roku a doufat, že Snyder zase nedostane od DC nějakou nabídku, která se neodmítá.

    I liked this one-shot/prequel/sequel-set-up more than the entire first volume of Wytches. I still have my issues with the execution of an otherwise great premise—Hollingsworth’s paint splatters are still obtrusive and annoying—but they’re also less prominent than in the original volume, which meant I could more easily get invested the story this time around. While technically a prequel to Vol. 1, “Bad Egg” feels like a sequel in that it expands the world of “Wytches” in big, and thankfully, excit I liked this one-shot/prequel/sequel-set-up more than the entire first volume of Wytches.

While technically a prequel to Vol. 1, “Bad Egg” feels like a sequel in that it expands the world of “Wytches” in big, and thankfully, exciting ways that lay the groundwork for Vol. 2, planned for next year. Once again, the ideas Snyder works with are fascinating, as the underground Wytche-worshippers-versus-Wytche-hunters conflict is very cool and I’m eager to see it developed further. The story this time around is more predictable than Vol. 1, but I also think this one is better executed. The characters are given room to breathe, and the slow, methodical pacing helped me get more invested in our main character than I ever could in Vol. 1. The finale was a bit lackluster—again, the paint splatter obscures a lot of the action and imagery, and while I get what it’s trying to do, it just doesn’t work for me—but I still enjoyed reading it and feel genuinely excited about reading Vol. 2 whenever it comes out.

    This set before the first volume of Wytches but also introduces characters that will appear in the second volume. I really liked that, if felt organic in its structure and added to the mythology of Wytches seamlessly. The writing is even better than the first volume and the story was engrossing, I’m really looking forward to the next volume now and I have very high hopes.

    Excellent addition to the Wytches canon. I am very excited to see how this wraps into the next main arc.

    Single issue/one-shot/special/whatever of the year. This special reminded me just how much I missed this series and just how good the Snyder/Jock creative duo truly is.

    Don't Play With Your Food This is a sort of prequel, sequel, place holder, one-shot for a larger Wytches arc that was and will be. I'm not familiar with all of that, but read and enjoyed this as the one-shot it was. There's plenty of exposition and explaining, even among people who already know or should know what's being explained, but if you don't mind that sort of thing this was good fun.

There's solid pencil work that's then colored with slapdash impressionistic strokes so the whole project has a modern, graffiti like look that sometimes works with the story and sometimes doesn't. The story is a creatures-among-us Lovecraft sort of tale with monster hunters and monster collaborators. Two boys from different sides form a friendship and all of the tension turns on who's going to walk away in one piece. The action built up well, there were a few nice touches, and a few twists. I wasn't captivated, and don't need to track down the other arcs, but this struck me as a fine read. (Please note that I had a chance to read a free ecopy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    So I am a little upset that the review I wrote for this volume went ahead and got deleted. The thing though is that I really liked this book and felt that it deserves to get its praise. This Wytches book came out just in time for Halloween and was done just right. I've read and reread Wytches' first arc and kind of felt a bit lost but I did enjoy the horror and mystery to it. With Bad Egg, I sort of feel that if it had been released as a one-shot before Arc 1, maybe it would have gotten over more So I am a little upset that the review I wrote for this volume went ahead and got deleted.

With Bad Egg, I sort of feel that if it had been released as a one-shot before Arc 1, maybe it would have gotten over more so. So Bad Egg is described as being a prequel to Arc 2 which will be out later this year. It is a stand alone story and really does not have much of a connection with Arc 1. The thing about it though is that this story answers and explains so much that I had questioned at the conclusion of Arc 1. We get a better understanding of the magic and the true nature of the wytches. I think I will keep this short and brief. I personally would recommend someone to read this special prior to rereading the first arc. I plan on rereading the arc now and will eagerly anticipate arc 2.

    I'd forgotten about this one, having decided it was done a while back, so a neat surprise to find in my comics pull box. as usual wonderful stuff, and the fear or being betrayed by those we trust while young has stuck around with me ever since watching Invasion From Mars in 1986. So that's a soft subtle spot for terror, deep and cerebral, chittering at the periphery of our adult fears for our children, waiting to be fed.

    CScott schnyders Wytches series is just absolutely excellent stuff. This is the Halloween special prequel to vol 1 - if u have kids, makesure you read the afterword - Schnyder talks about his kids fears and inevitable coming of age and also of his own fears and about leaving the magic ladr metween childhood and adolecent behind.... It's very strong stuff!

    Solid without being amazing. A little predictable and the ending could have been better. The artwork is still weird and confusing. I guess that's the state of mind they want you in.

    I love this series and I wish that the new one would already publish! Snyder is just a really good writer of the creepy bits.

    A fantastic return to one of my favorite horror universes as of late. It's such a unique twist on witch lore, and this one-shot only adds to the world Scott Snyder is building.

    Can't wait for the next full installation. This special edition lives up to the creepy tradition of the Wytches name.

    I really enjoyed this book, and was excited to have more after reading the first volume. It was very interesting discovering more of Clara’s background. Can’t wait for the next one!
