Amigo Comics is ramping up their schedule as we head further into 2013 with The Westwood Witches. El Torres and Abel García (aka Abe Hernando) are bringing a new take on witchcraft to comics, setting it in the modern world set for release this May. The team previously worked together on Drums from Image Comics in 2011.
“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.”
The first issue of The Westwood Witches is due out in May but you can read a sneak peek on the Amigo Comics website.
