Episode 42

Join Johnny, Dennis, and our guest host Daisy as they take a look at Wytches, by writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock (aka Mark Simpson). Image Comics published Wytches in 2014. Wytches is the story of Sailor, a young woman who moves with her father to a small New England town to start a new life. However, she finds the town and its residents are not what they seems.

In this episode the gang discusses why Wytches can’t be compared to Roald Dahl’s The Witches; why Sailor can sympathize with America’s Greatest Hero; is it possible that the main character was annoying or suffering from anxiety; why one doesn’t bring a knife or a gun to an magical tree fight; also how even though Daisy isn’t a deer expert, how she determines if a deer is normal or not; the chances that getting into a sorority is similar to becoming a Wytch; and last but not least, the storytelling and art of Wytches
