Wytches

Comics As Nightmares

This story really highlighted to me the opportunity comic books have to explore the not so pensive moments in our every day waking reality. These moments would be categorized in the things unexplained, the things seen but not there, the line between dreaming and reality where you can't truly make sense of the images or context. Nightmares often feel this way, especially upon waking. One might wonder, why they were so afraid in the first? Wytches has that same affect on me, at least at first. It reminds me of the film It Follows which also highlighted a particular fear; something is coming and you cannot stop it.
