Witchcraft is broken - and the SCARLET WITCH is on a journey across the globe to fix it. From the back alleys of Manhattan, to the serene Greek Isles, to the bustling streets of Hong Kong, Wanda will have to face down her foes and find out who her true friends are. But as Wanda solves magical crimes and pieces witchcraft back together, the most important question remains: Who is the mastermind that broke it in the first place? Written by Eisner Award winner JAMES ROBINSON, with covers by Eisner Award winner DAVID AJA with the first issue drawn by fan-favorite VANESA DEL REY! Rated T+

BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer


Anytime a new Scarlet Witch title comes out, I am compelled to check it out. I was lucky enough to have discovered the character during the early days of the Avengers. But I really fell in love with her like many others during the classic storylines around Avengers #100. With Don Heck illustrating the lovely mutant, she was never more amazing. The problem with the character is that people kept messing with her. Mutant or non-mutant? Chaos magic or probably changer? Red one-piecer or gypsy corset? This incarnation is brought to us by our good friend James Robinson and as usual he has done his research! The introductory storyline is well versed in magic and the plot is solid. The problem is that the book has chosen to go with the creepy art of Vanesa Del Rey. Not that the artwork is bad. Del Rey's art is suitably creepy but that is the problem. The initial story isn't that creepy. So it's almost as if Del Rey's art was purposely used to add atmosphere to the story and it isn't necessary. The scenes where Wanda interacts with demons or ghosts is fine but the everyday scenes of life it is unnecessary. Forcing a story into the creepy zone when it doesn't need to be doesn't help. It didn't work back in the 90's when they tried to bring back the Werewolf By Night and Man-Thing series and it doesn't work now. Still, Robinson's story is worth checking out.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
