Following the 1999 release of Artisan Pictures’ The Blair Witch Project, the world became aware of an urban legend birthed in the dark forests of Burkittsville, Maryland. The Blair Witch Project was a chilling and innovative example of horror cinema, but it was only a part of the story. These unique comic book tales expand on the legend of the Blair Witch, delving deeper into the origins of the mysterious woman Elly Kedward and the influence her presence has had on the small East Coast town over the years. From the murders at Coffin Rock and the tragic story of Rustin Parr, through the ’50s and schoolboy pranks gone wrong to the ’90s and a Wiccan coven’s attempts to cleanse the woods, the true mystery of the Blair Witch has only begun to be unraveled.

In 1785, Elly Kedward was driven out of the Township of Blair in North Central Maryland. A year later, her accusers started disappearing under mysterious circumstances. Fearing Elly had cursed them all, the people of Blair fled, abandoning their town and giving birth to a legend. This one-shot comic works in conjunction with the recently unearthed documentary shot by a film crew who never returned to relate their experience. It fleshes out the mystery, relating the frightening stories of other people who have had run-ins with the mysterious, mythical Blair Witch, a new staple of modern horror. Written by Jennifer Van Meter, it contains three stories by three of comics top illustrators: Guy Davis, Bernie Mireault, and Tommy Lee Edwards.

Following the success of the film and comic book, The Blair Witch Project, Oni Press and Artisan entertainment re-team for four new stories inspired by the Blair Witch mythology! It’s the early 1990s, and a group of naïve Wicca have been hired to cleanse the woods of Burkittsville of an evil spirit that has been tormenting the townspeople. Believing that they are working for the greater good, they perform their spells and return home with the hope that their magick worked. What they discover, however, is that they’ve brought a small piece of the curse home with them, and it proves to be their doom.

In the 1800s, new settlers moved into the abandoned Blair Township to build a new community, Burkittsville. Every attempt to build on the site of the old Blair church, however, is met with a cataclysmic demise. Fed up with the power the evil forces are having over his town, the Burkittsville minister goes into the woods with a flock of his faithful to try to drive whatever demons lurk there away — until he himself becomes overtaken by powers he can’t control.
