The Westwood Witches
Story by: El Torres
Art by: Abel García
The same team behind the acclaimed “Drums” miniseries at Image Comics tell us a whole new tale of horror that brings the witchcraft horror into the modern world. A macabre 4-issues miniseries that will be released in May, 2013.
“It’s not just about witchcraft” states 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.”

REVIEWS AND WORDS
- Doc Brown at The Geeks of Doom reviews The Westwood Witches #2: “I held out the hope that this Spanish team would give the 4-issue horror series the same careful attention that has been shown in the horror film industry in Spain in recent years.
They completely blew me away.”
- Charles Bitterbaum at The Newest Rant does like The Westwood Witches:“…(it) is expertly written, and the art by Abel Garcia impresses throughout the whole book with its mixture of the realistic and ethereal both drawn beautifully. I would definitely recommend people check out this book, and if Amigo’s good start with title is an indicator of future books from them, they will definitely be a new publisher to watch.
