Cullen Bunn s Harrow County is actually like what I wanted, but quite didn t get, from Scott Snyder s Wytches.You Caint Never Kill Them Spooky Devil Women You ve got a girl on the cusp of womanhood who may be in danger, townspeople harboring a secret past, and a mystery that gets frightening the closer it gets to being solved.Stir it all up, and you ve got a quite a scary mystery Alright, when I first got this one, I stuffed it on the bottom of my reading pile Why Well, initially I had the sam [...]
Welcome to the Witchcraze Seriously, where do all those comic book witches come from all of a sudden Brubaker s Fatale, Kirkman s Outcast, Snyder s Wytches, now Bunn s Harrow County is it just that the market demands horror and can no longer absorb zombies, vampires, and werewolves Or is there to the seemingly outdated notion of demonic possession than meets the eye Is there something about the subgenre that increasingly resonates with us these days Come to think of it, I guess the henchmen of [...]
Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum I was already going to half ass this review, but then I took a gander over at Shelby s and she flippin beat me to the punch on every dang thing I was going to say Pretty much just read hers because we obviously share the same brain and it was her turn to use it when it came to writing up something about this story.The basics are that back in the day some broad was thought to be a witch so the townsfolks did errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrything in their power meaning, [...]
Reread 7 10 17 I m still very much into this beautifully drawn horror comic series about Emmy, a teen who may be a reborn witch, with healing properties Monsters, ghosts, and a strong attractive female lead, a very engaging cast of characters, great art, great story.Original 3 16 17 review I liked this a lot Usually it takes me awhile to warm up to a series, those slow starts, but this has the engine revved right out of the gate Described as a southern gothic fairy tale, Harrow County Countless [...]
Thanks to that crazy MahFah Kelly and her better half Mitchell this pregnant chick got just what she needed a nice new slightly used comic book Harrow County was gifted to me by the lovely Kelly and I will be paying it forward Stay tuned for details Hester was labeled a witch The townsfolk decided they needed to destroy her She was beaten, stabbed, burned and then hung Now, I don t work for Manitowoc County but it sounds like Steven Avery might have had something to do with it.Of course, Hester [...]
The people of Harrow County burned the witch, Hester Beck, on the hanging tree Before she died, she told them she d come back Years later Emmy has turned 18 and isn t sure what she s going to do with her life But strange things are happening around her pa s farm with cattle mysteriously dying That is, except for the one Emmy laid hands on To her father s horror, he realises the witch has returned in the form of his daughter Writer Cullen Bunn re teams with his Sixth Gun fill in artist Tyler Croo [...]
I love this book Cullen Bunn s southern gothic tale of horror is as scary as any great horror novel and seriously creeps me the fuck out while also making me fall in love with the characters Tyler Crook s fully painted artwork is beautiful and really is the best work I ve seen from him.This volume collects the first four issues I wish they d waited a bit longer and collected the first six but I m not docking it a star for that it s just too damned good I recommend it to anybody who is a fan of t [...]
The townies burn a witch,she vows to return,now you are up to speed Young Emmy is introduced,I think you may be getting the picture I wasn t crazy about this one,but I am planning on reading the next volume It better have of a wow factor.
The first volume of Harrow County was a treat I admit that it took some time for me to warm up to how the characters were drawn, but after a while and together with the beautiful watercolor backgrounds did I quite start to like how the characters looked.The story was good, Emmy a young girl is turning 18 and suddenly everyone she knows is out to kill her including her father and she don t at first understand why, that is until she learns the truthIt was never really terrifying to read, not to me [...]
I m happy to report that this was exactly what I was hoping for dark fantasy with the feel of folklore This is the sort of story that would have been well at home in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and that s fine company to be in, in my opinion Yes, the story unfolds a little slowly, and this volume seems to be largely concerned with world building I do expect that from the first few issues in a brand new IP, after all And I do find the world building to be largely interesting The idea of th [...]
A pretty solid start to a new witch tale They do seem to be the new zombies in the comic book world The citizens of Harrow County burn a witch at the stake but not before she utters a curse saying she will be back Years later, Emmy is about to turn 18 People think she is the witch reincarnated and try to kill her Turns out she is a witch but she just wants to live her life From there, we have some twists and turns one of which I thought was pretty creative The book easily could have been a stand [...]
Poor Emmy Birthed by a vengeful spirit, tormented by nightmares, hunted for death on her eighteenth birthday, kidnapped by loyal followers, this girl isn t having the life she d imagined for herself just days ago.But she s got friends granted, one comes in two pieces and she s willing to fight her past in order to make her own future so maybe she ll be ok.Maybe.I enjoyed this It felt like a mix of A Path Begins, story wise, and Wytches, Vol 1, in tone The art doesn t rely solely on darkness, the [...]
4.5 Sometimes when there s horror in graphic novels, I find that they can be too wordy and often too confusing when they try to add complicated plot lines or hidden messages Harrow County did not do this The art and the dialogue match perfectly, while the storyline was straight to the point and easy to follow The creativity of this graphic was hard to miss and did not disappoint I m wondering if other illustrators will make a cameo in future volumes.
When I saw Harrow County on the comic shelf, I stopped to admire it s rather creepy cover So I read all the fluff and decided I d take a chance Well I am glad I did.Young Emmy lives in Harrow County Harrow County is a very strange place Emmy growing up hears a lot of rumors and stories about haints supernatural things and witches It seems that Harrow County has a strange and dark past That strange and dark past may have come full circle and manifested in the young Emmy Yet, this knowledge is not [...]

Bullet Review Four stars is probably high, but I wanted to differentiate from my 3 stars Also I did enjoy this.It s creepy, a little gory Sure, somewhat standard story with GORGEOUS art, but eh, I was in the mood for it Though I avoided reading before bed no nightmares for this girl
Hace un par de a os, le los primeros dos tomos sueltos de Harrow County y qued enganchad sima Incluso los recomend en un video de mi canal y desde entonces me hab a propuesto leer el volumen completo pero por alguna raz n u otra, simplemente no pasaba.Finalmente lo hice y la verdad es que fue un agasajo No s si hayan escuchado el t rmino g tico sure o, que se utiliza para hacer referencia a novelas con elementos g ticos que ocurren en el deep south estadounidense, en lugares como Nueva Orleans j [...]
Intriguing graphic novel which draws largely on hill country folklore and witchlore, one of my favorite subjects Any story that uses the word haints has a good chance of sucking me in The illustrations are also unique in that they use watercolors.
Spooky tale of a witch dead and a witch reborn.
I like creepy, scary reads and this qualifies It s the kind of story that I can t describe too well without spoiling future readers I ll keep things general and say that this is about a girl who is far special than she could ever imagine, and how she comes to terms with that This story was made for the graphic novel format The imagery is very powerful and instills dread and the shudder factor in me It s beautifully drawn and inked, but icky It definitely has an American Gothic kind of feel, whi [...]
Having just read volume 2 I noticed I didn t review volume 1 and kinda want to so here it is.What s it about There s this witch who was hung in a tree but said she would be back Years later this girl named Emmy becomes 18 and has some things in common with the dead witch.Why it gets 5 stars The story is interesting.The characters are well written and worth caring about I actually have a theory in my head that Emmy is meant to be like Jesus sorta like how Superman s meant to be like Moses in some [...]
This is a Southern gothic tale set in a fictional Harrow County, someplace vaguely Southern Appalachian circa early 20th century I like that era and setting for rural horror tales, so this volume, the first in a series, caught my eye at the comic book store.A teenage girl named Emmy discovers that she s actually the reincarnation of an evil witch that her fellow townspeople, including her own Pa, shot, stabbed, hanged, and burned years ago When the time comes to kill the witch again, Emmy discov [...]
Do I need to convince anyone at this point that Harrow County is a particularly brilliant new bit of backwoods horror If you ve liked previous stuff from Cullen Bunn, you ll like this And Tyler Crook does some of the best work of his career I particularly liked the flaming ghosts I always like flaming ghosts.
Not too sure why I never read this one until now but hot damn I really enjoyed it It was perfectly creepy and not bogged down with unnecessary gore or anything like I foolishly assumed that it would be Don t get me wrong there was still some grotesquely fun artwork, but it fit the story and didn t feel like it was just put there for sheer shock value alone It served a higher purpose It served the story.In fact the art was probably my favorite thing about this book The watercolors were incredible [...]
When I come home, I greet my cat by saying Herro Because when she wails in the night, as cats seem to do, that s what it sounds like she s saying Like she s forgotten where she is, who else is around, and she just yells Herro into the darkness.It s now our greeting I feel like I m just trying to use words she understands Meet half way It also spawned a song called Herro, which is sung to the tune of Adele s Hello It goes like this Herro It s me.Sicily that s the cat s name That s all the lyrics [...]
New England witchcraft folklore has been trending lately Not that I m complaining I prefer the old school witches to the touchy feely wiccan kind pop culture has been trying to sell us for the last couple of decades Harrow County, unfortunately, tries to live on both sides of that fence, and the result is a bit deflating after a promising start.Emmy is a lonely teenage girl living on a farm with her pa, who soon discovers she is the reincarnation of a witch named Hester yep, Hester that the town [...]
Poor little Emmy, barely 18 years old and already it s decided that her time on this earth is done She has to pay for the crimes she committed during her past life, her life as Hester Beck the Healing Witch In contrary to other books in this genre, where often burned witches turned out to be innocent women, Hester Beck really did do a whole lot of shitty things And while the villagers strung up and burned her with pain in their hearts, because she also healed their children , she spoke one last [...]

Definitely a horror comic It feels very Southern Gothic and is full of ickiness and spookiness There s some nice background here and our central character is interesting, as is her father But, it doesn t feel like we ve gotten to the plot yet, just the setup So it ll take another volume to see where this is actually going.
