Following his ground-breaking, critically acclaimed run on Detective Comics, writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) alongside artist Greg Capullo (Spawn) begins a new era of The Dark Knight with the relaunch of Batman, as a part of DC Comics—The New 52!
After a series of brutal murders rocks Gotham City, Batman begins to realize that perhaps these crimes go far deeper than appearances suggest. As the Caped Crusader begins to unravel this deadly mystery, he discovers a conspiracy going back to his youth and beyond to the origins of the city he's sworn to protect. Could the Court of Owls, once thought to be nothing more than an urban legend, be behind the crime and corruption? Or is Bruce Wayne losing his grip on sanity and falling prey to the pressures of his war on crime?
Before the era of superheroes began—before the Batman spread his wings to protect the innocent and punish evil—Gotham City's prodigal son, Bruce Wayne, had been missing for years. But this was exactly the cover of darkness Bruce needed. Patrolling Gotham's streets, in a series of disguises, he began a career as a faceless vigilante.

More praise for WYTCHES:
"Dark and brutal, Wytches are like nothing horror fans have ever seen" -USA Today
"In Wytches, the Image Comics series Snyder co-created with the superstar art team of Jock and Matt Hollingsworth, the writer isn't just completely reinventing witches--through the story of the Rook family's dealings with the titular monsters, he's diving deep into very real fears about being a parent, and the ugliness that hides in all of us." -Entertainment Weekly
"An awesome and at times terrifying tale." -IGN
"A great read.... the art is outstanding and certain panels may give you nightmares." -iO9
"If you read the first 4 pages of WYTCHES, there's no turning back. Scary as fuck and impossible to put down. Bravo." -Joe Hill, Locke & Key
"Monumental." -Bloody Disgusting
"Snyder has tackled horror before, but Wytches sets out to be an entirely new level of scary. Aside from the fact that the monsters in the book are terrifying (artist Jock has done an amazing job realizing the creatures), Snyder's vision of witchcraft is as much about the deepest fears parents face as it is about spooky monsters in the woods." -Complex Magazine
