Wicked Comics the voluntary crew behind the Malta Comic Con and promoters of the comic culture worldwide are proud to announce a macabre four issue mini series from Amigo Comics titled “The Westwood Witches”.
Written by El Torres, and illustrated by Abel Garcia (aka Abe Hernando) the same team behind the acclaimed “Drums” miniseries at Image Comics have come up with a whole new tale of horror that brings the witchcraft horror into the modern world. Issue one of this exciting mini series will hit the shelves in May 2013.
The Westwood Witches focuses on Jack Kurtzberg a successful writer of young witch romance bestsellers, who despite his success hates his writing. Suffering from a writer’s block he decides to move back to his hometown, not knowing that his new neighbours are witches, the kind of demon worshippers that would kill anyone who could disturb their dominion in Westwood.
“It’s not just about witchcraft” states writer El Torres, “but about beliefs, too. What seems real to us sounds like nonsense to others, and that’s the power of literature… and quackery. But overall, The Westwood Witches is a tale about neighborhood and neighbors. In this book, they’re beautiful, they’re kind, and they’re demon worshippers. You could say it’s like Desperate Housewives with macabre murderings”.
Torres also says: “I’m also very happy with the awesome art that Abel does in this book. Abel does a terrific work depicting creepy suburbias and hot women. There are a lot of homages to Goya’s macabre paintings and engravings, and a great mood and atmosphere… which is what makes horror really fun.”
The Westwood Witches #1 (of 4) will be released in May 2013 and will consist of 32 pages of full colour.
This press release and an advanced copy of issue 1 of The Westwood Witches were sent to us for promotional purpose by Boom Art Development. Stayed tuned for the Wicked Comics review of issue 1 which will be uploaded shortly.
