Graphic Non-Fiction exposes the historical Burning Times

Witch Hunts: A Graphic History of the Burning Times

Author: Rocky Wood

Publisher: McFarland

Category: Graphic Novel   Level: All


For three centuries, as the Black Death rampaged through Europe and the Reformation tore the Church apart, tens of thousands were arrested as witches and subjected to torture and execution, including being burned alive. This graphic novel examines the background; the witch hunters’ methods; who profited; the brave few who protested; and how the Enlightenment gradually replaced fear and superstition with reason and science.

Famed witch hunters Heinrich Kramer, architect of the infamous Malleus Maleficarum, and Matthew Hopkins, England’s notorious "Witchfinder General, " are covered as are the Salem Witch Trials and the last executions in Europe.

Rocky Wood is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of many books about Stephen King. He is president of the Horror Writers Association and lives in Victoria, Australia. Lisa Morton is a playwright, fiction and reference book author and screenwriter. A Bram Stoker Award winner for superior achievement in horror writing, she lives in North Hollywood, California. Greg Chapman is a fiction writer and horror illustrator, specializing in comics and graphic novels. Two horror novellas were published in 2011. He lives in Central Queensland, Australia.

"The graphic novel digs deeper into the issues with graphics and dialogue that bring the witch-hunts to life"--Digital Journal

"This superstitious era is thoroughly examined...enlightening, entertaining, and marvelously illustrated...a splendid and comprehensive guide to the Burning Times"--The Tomb of Dark Delights.

"Do yourself a favor and pick up this absolutely stunning non-fiction graphic novel, it is eye opening and meticulously presented. It will linger with you long after you put it down and I give it my highest recommendation." - Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters of Filmland

"This brilliant graphic novel examines the history of "witches" from 775 A.D. to the present. You'll find much to appreciate, and I promise you'll be edified --if not downright horrified at the persecution (particularly aimed at women) over the centuries. Such persecution, from unspeakable tortures to burning at the stake is painstakingly illustrated by the talented Greg Chapman. Learn about the Malleus Maleficarum and the two "godly" men behind it. One thing I was impressed with was the end result of such witch hunts was how, through centuries, towns became too impoverished to continue, having killed off both merchants and farmers to the point where there were none left to till the fields or supply the wares needed for survival. Hats off to authors Rocky Wood and Lisa Morton for scripting a marvelous and worthy graphic novel. A true "keeper" you should have on your bookshelf, if not just on your Kindle!" -Marge Simon , Bram Stoker Award winning poet

Author's Notes: This graphic "novel" is grounded in history - we had to make nothing up. We are finding educators and those interested in this appalling period are using the book to educate people as to what happened, and demistify the views often held about what happened during the witch hunt phenomenon.
