Superstar writer Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire, The Wake) appears at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, January 17, 2015 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm to sign WYTCHES!
The one and only Scott Snyder, the uber-talented superstar writer behind Batman: Court of Owls, Batman the Black Mirror, American Vampire, and most recently, the red-hot new IMAGE series WYTCHES, will be making a very special visit to Third Eye!
We are beyond stoked to be hosting Scott at the shop, and we know when many of you guys heard our first announcement of this, you echoed the same excitement in a major way!
And, you guys know why this signing is happening? It’s because of YOU and your enthusiasm for these awesome events we have. Third Eye has a reputation far and wide for providing some of the most fun in-store events in the country, and we could not do it without you guys and the genuine love of the medium each and everyone of you brings with you.
So, we’re going to be pulling out all the stops to make this one extra-special, as we celebrate the SEASON OF THE WYTCH at Third Eye with Scott Snyder.
WHAT’S WYTCHES ABOUT?
This incredible new IMAGE COMICS series is one of the coolest things we’ve seen to come down the pike in quite sometime. Not since the release of SAGA #1 have we had this kind of anticipation and excitement for a new ongoing series, and folks, while we’re only one issue in at this point, I have to tell you: that one issue totally delivered on all the high hopes we had for it!
In WYTCHES, we’re shown how across hte globe, century after century, men and women were burned, drowned, hanged, tortured, imprisoned, persecuted, and murdered for the crime of witchcraft.
Guess what? None of them were witches. In fact, they died protecting a terrible and hidden truth: witches, real witches, DO exist.
They are ancient, elusive, and deadly creatures that are rarely seen and even more rarely survived.
And, in Snyder & Jock’s WYTCHES, we’re taking a very dark trip into their world.
We can practically hear Dario Argento’s Suspiria theme playing in the background as we type this, Third Eye Faithful, that’s how darn creepy and awesome WYTCHES is.
Winter is the Season of the Wytch!

We’re so excited about WYTCHES that we did not just one, but two awesome Third Eye variants, one for issue #2, and one for issue #3!

OTHER PROJECTS BY SCOTT SNYDER
We’re super big fans of Snyder’s other projects, and past works as well as his new series WYTCHES, so we wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of the other great stuff he’s done that you can get signed on 1/17/15!
First off, in the series AMERICAN VAMPIRE, Scott Snyder totally reimagined the mythology of vampires in a way that was so fresh, and so exciting, that it still has us hooked to this day with the most recent incarnation: AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SECOND CYCLE.
In AMERICAN VAMPIRE, we begin by following Pearl, a young woman living in 1920s Los Angeles, who is brutally turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European monsters who tortured and abused her.
Meanwhile, the background to American Vampire is laid in the Old West, as the origin of Skinner Sweet, the original American vampire, shows us a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.
Imagine Sergio Leone’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA by way of FROM DUSK TIL DAWN or NEAR DARK, as Snyder follows his cast through the various generations and decades, and delivers one of the best takes on horror comics we’ve seen in quite some time.
We’ve got all the graphic novels of AMERICAN VAMPIRE in stock, as well as all of the issues of the new series, SECOND CYCLE, to get you on board.
And, of course, many of you may already know Scott Snyder from his incredible work on BATMAN, but just in case you don’t, we’ve got to take a second to spotlight his work on BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS, BATMAN: CITY OF OWLS, BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY, and most recently BATMAN: ZERO YEAR.
As the man who brought BATMAN back to prominence with the launch of the NEW 52 Batman run, starting with COURT OF OWLS, then continuing into the later stories, Snyder has redefined BATMAN more than any other creator in recent memory.
Along with GREG CAPULLO, he has done an incredible job of giving us exactly what we want out of Gotham City, and then some.
Folks, if you’ve never read BATMAN, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve read BATMAN, we highly recommend picking up BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS, and finding out why Snyder’s run is spoken of so highly.
And, don’t forget, BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR, which features Snyder’s WYTCHES collaborator, JOCK, and delivers one of the most interesting Batman stories we’ve ever read.
In BATMAN, the BLACK MIRROR, Snyder & Jock, showcase the dark origins of Jim Gordon’s long-lost son… James Gordon Jr. And, it’s a truly harrowing read, from start to finish. By far, one of the darkest, and most compelling BATMAN stories we’ve read since ARKHAM ASYLUM, Batman: the BLACK MIRROR is an incredible read, and a must-have to get signed by Scott on Saturday 1/17/15.
Finally, a must-read for you WYTCHES fans, as it really captures the same kind of sheer creepiness, and dread that WYTCHES does, is SEVERED. In this IMAGE COMICS sleeper hit, we’re introduced to 12-year old Jack Garron, who’s ran away from home to find his biological father, a wayward musician.
Along the way he meets up with a traveling salesman whose winning smile is fake, beneath which hide his real teeth — jagged spikes that he uses to eat his prey.
This was an incredible read, and if you dig the cerebral, eerie horror of WYTCHES, then you’ll love SEVERED. Make sure you scoop a copy to get signed by Scott on 1/17!
Cosplay & Be Entered to Win a WYTCHES #1
Phantom Black & White Sketch Variant
Scott Snyder has written some great stories with some fantastic characters for Cosplay material; be it the mysterious Wytches you could put your own interpretation on, a member of the Court of Owls, ol’ Skinner Sweet, or the Clown Prince of Crime.

Artist Sean Murphy (The Wake, Punk Rock Jesus, Interstellar) appears with writer Katana Collins and artist Clay McCormack at Casablanca Comics on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm for a special signing of CAFE RACER!
About the book:
As a toddler, Orchid and her father barely escaped Japan during the Doolittle Raid of WWII. Years later, Orchid is still an outcast as she speeds her way into London’s Cafe Racer motorcycle society. Defying both racial and sexist stereotypes, the half-Japanese teenager is unbeatable in a race–much to the disappointment of her father, who forbids her from riding his mysterious motorcycle. After discovering friendship in the most unexpected places, she soon uncovers the truth of the bike, along with its connection to the disappearance of her mother in pre-war Japan.
Cafe Racer is a story told through seven vignettes, also including extra features such as pencils, concept art, and other behind the scenes artwork.

Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire appear at Gosh Comics for a signing on Wednesday, November 14th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Presented in conjunction with Thought Bubble.
Since bursting onto the comic scene in 2009 Eisner and Harvey award winning Scott Snyder has written for both Marvel and DC; working on well-loved titles including Iron Man, and The Human Torch. Scott’s current work on Batman Eternal is particularly good but it’s his creator-owned work with Vertigo (American Vampire and The Wake) comics that’s really caught our attention.
Eisner and Harvey award nominations have also made their way over to the second creator of the evening, Jeff Lemire. If the name seems familiar it shouldn’t be a surprise. He wrote that comic. You know the one? Children born with horns and snouts and hooves and stuff. Not content with creating his own immersive and believable worlds (Essex County, Sweet Tooth, Trillium) Lemire has also written for DC comics with impressive runs on Animal Man, Justice League Dark, and Green Arrow to name a few.
Both creators will be with us signing copies of their books between 5-7pm on Friday the 14th of November. There’s going to be a 3 item limit on the night so choose carefully! If you don’t already have the book you’re after don’t worry; we’ll have a selection of their work available on the day. If you’re unable to make it to the event and there’s a specific book you’d like us to have signed for you then get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make those arrangements.
