This graphic novel manages to achieve an immersive horror experience both through the story it tells (which follows a family starting over in a new town and the dark secrets may have followed them) as well as the illustrations, which are sometimes almost frantic in their eeriness. Definitely not a nighttime read.

I really got into this book. Snyder is a great horror writer. This is apparent even in his batman run. Jock is an interesting artist. I liked him a lot when I was a teenager reading Losers. Now I'm not as big of a fan but I think he is great for this book. He is really atmospheric and add a lot of layers (maybe to many). His pencil and ink work is great, I think it's his layering and editing is what people don't get down with. Awesome read.

I remember hearing a lot about this one when it came out. I remember buying, reading, and enjoying the first two issues when they came out...then I got distracted and never picked up the rest. I have to say...sort of underwhelmed. A lot of it I think has to do with the art. When we're looking at a scene that's fully lit, it is a lot better to grasp than when its dark. The dark stuff is cool, it's just a lot harder to understand what the heck is happening.

That being said I did enjoy the story overall. At the beginning I found the flashes back and forth confusing but it does all head toward a cohesive whole at the end. It's quite creepy in its own way too - even if I can't quite see what I'm supposed to be scared of

Sail and her family move to a small town in New Hampshire, hoping to escape a traumatic encounter she had in the woods. Unfortunately, the woods of their new home appear to be haunted by the same dark uncanny force. Snyder writes a truly creepy story, but it's Jock's art that makes this comic so memorable. Do not read it before bedtime. Fans of "The Blair Witch Project" have barely scraped the surface of why witches are scary until they read this graphic novel.
