Image Expo has turned 2014 into a very promising year. Plenty of talented creators took to the stage and it was announced a whole slew of unique and very interesting titles will be heading our way. We each have our favorites from the batch, but this week, we wanted to see which announcement is generating the most hype from the community. Well, one title obliterated the competition -- seriously, it has a 27% lead over 2nd place. Ladies and gentlemen, the winner is...
Basically, the premise is everything we thought we know about witches is totally incorrect. They're darker and far more fearsome than we've imagined. Snyder says he's creating them as "something a lot darker and scarier than I've seen before." The writer spoke with Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero at the event and offered some more details. "They're beastial, terrifying, androgynous creatures and we don't understand the origin of them. All of the human people that we've thought of as witches are actually the people who worship those creatures. And in that way, they're very elusive." Also, Snyder reveals why the book is spelled with a "y." So, if you're curious about that and want to learn more about the book, definitely watch G-Man's interview with him here.
