Scarlett Witch deals with a new threat in each of these stand alone issues while bemoaning that she should be looking into her real mother. Most of the issues consist of 2 people talking for each issue are very introspective. Outside of the Civil War II tie-in where she finally has it out with her brother, Pietro, I didn't find the issues very entertaining. I take that back, I did like The Wu. In fact I found her more interesting than Wanda. I liked how they had a different female creative team ...more

In this second volume, Wanda continues her globe-spanning investigation into what is deeply wrong with witchcraft and magic. I'm enjoying this book; it's a nice change of pace from a lot of the rest of Marvel's output. The Civil War II crossover issue was pretty good, featuring a clash between Wanda and her fleet-footed brother Quicksilver, and didn't derail the ongoing plot.

The fact that there is a new artist with every issue makes the book feel a little disjointed but some of the artwork has b

Excellent! It is no secret that this series is honestly my favourite comic of the year; it truly is amazing! So if you don't already know, this series follows a different approach, as their is one overarching story, however each issue is its own one shot story, while still adding to the main story; similar to the story format of Samurai Jack, if you ever saw that cartoon(If you have not, what you doing with your life?)! The stories although one shots, are all absolutely well written and original ...more

Seguimos, con el primer tomo, con Wanda ayudando a otros países. Qué buena es. Ja.

En fin, este tomo, todo autoras en el apartado gráfico, muy bien. Me han gustado todas. Además tienen pinta de ser nativas de los países sobre los que hablan y eso es chachi.

Luego ha habido dos grapas, la de la terapia y la conexión con las Civil War, en especial la segunda, que me han gustado más.

Robinson continues to weave together the various plot and character threads established in the first volume, and leading up to what we now know is the final volume of this series.

Look, I'll agree that many male writers do not know how to write female characters. Here, Robinson is doing a good job of further developing a character who previously had been a follower. Wanda is becoming her own woman, and the forced Civil War II issues really allows the reader to explore this as she has a verbal co

I have to admit, I didn't feel so thrilled with this Scarlet Witch series, but the art finally captured me and I've finally become fascinated by the character. I hadn't enjoyed a Marvel comic as much as I'm enjoying this one in a really long time. I've never liked The Avengers or the Scarlet Witch, and this story has been a perfect way to discover her.

Zeszyt ósmy pokazuje wszystkie problemy tej serii. Wanda odbywa serię terapeutyczną z archetypem samego Frauda, który okazuje się niecnym złoczyńcą o psychicznych mocach, który wykorzystuje Wandę, a ona na to pozwala (not really, ale nie chcę wchodzić w szczegóły), chociaż wie, z kim ma do czynienia. No jasna cholera. Poza tym ten zeszyt to takie streszczenie dla topornych, cała nowa historia Scarlet Witch.

[Read as single issues]

I absolutely love what James Robinson is doing with this book. Every issue reveals a little something more about Wanda as a character, and magic as a whole, as she explores the world of witchcraft (hence the title) and solves magical crimes as she tries to get closer to the secret of her mother's identity and who has poisoned magic itself.

This is a very quiet, introspective book for the most part, with explosions of colour punctuating the battle scenes. There's always a l
Well, I just got this on loan from the library and discovered that I had already read all the material included in this volume. This was a good bunch of stories and Robinson did a great job re-working Wanda and her role in the Marvel Universe. She's always been a favorite character of mine and after Bendis completely decimated her character, history and personality in the pages of the Avengers it was a long hard road to get her back. I liked the rotating artists as well, each one brought somethi ...more

The art is absolutely stunning in this series but the main story feels like a lot of nothing. Any time it attempts to explain away the fact that Wanda is deeeefinitely not a mutant okay guys??? it feels forced and silly.

Then it dangerously veers off into the Civil War II story that I don't care about for an issue where the artist draws Wanda with a totally different face in each panel and makes it seem like there is sexual tension between Wanda and Pietro??? Who asked for that?

But the art. So pr

I read this whole thing while sitting on the floor of a B&N and I have no a little shame.

I really enjoyed reading this. I love Wanda so much!! Every issue just made me get more attached to her - and more worried for her, but I'm trying to keep things positive here. And I was so happy that each issue felt like a complete story! I don't really like comic miniseries because they always seem so rushed, but this series manages to take a fifth of that length and make it the perfect length every ti

I binge read the entire series so I can't necessarily separate this review into individual trades, but I loved this series in its entirety. Learning about Scarlet Witch's past and the little one-and-done stories really made me enjoy this series.

Episodic magic problems with different art each issue. The art is all gorgeous, the combo of Jones and Rosenberg is especially jaw-dropping.

Unfortunately the story didn't do much for me. It either covered magical people who only get that issue for development or features annoying event tie-in crap.

A very pretty pile of meh.

Vol 2 World of Witchcraft is composed entirely issues that are self-contained stories. The vague 'story-line' if one can even call it that, is Scarlet Witch trying to find her birth mother and how her heritage influences her witchcraft (while also still atoning for the stuff she did in the past). Like in vol 1 there's a lot of travel, and this time it's global, spanning Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong and New York.

Because there is no real connecting story, I'll talk about each issue individually.

Loved it!

The Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) continues her journey on trying to fix the magic that has gone wrong around the globe. I especially love the artistry found in the pages of Hong Kong and Kyoto. Both of these locales are beautiful and haunting. I also enjoy meeting the witches and warlocks of these areas, in particular, Alice Gulliver. We first learn about her in Doctor Strange, Vol. 2: The Last Days of Magic, which I have read, so it is nice to learn more. She is an interesting charac

I have to say this second volume captured me even more than the first one. We are taking a break from the main storyline, Wanda's journey to find out what broke the witchcraft and how she could fix it and her investigation after her real family and her heritage.

She travels around the world and visits places like Paris in France, Hong Kong, Kyoto in Japan. She investigates magic related mysteries, offers her help for those who in need, even though the cost she has to pay is high. I loved all thes

I want this series to be better because I like the character, but instead each issue is a one-shot detective story. There's a vague theme of identity, family, and "fixing" broken magic that ties things together, but it's not really prominent enough. While this volume is slightly better than the first, I think the series would have benefited greatly from longer story arcs. For example, the issue where she sees a therapist would have been SO EXCELLENT if it had already been running in the backgrou ...more

Wanda's pursuit of the greater troubles with Witchcraft continue, but mostly in the background in this volume. Yet another example of the sterling character focused work occurring in Marvel's secondary titles--away from the glare of the X-Men/Avengers family spotlight. This volume is particularly episodic, with Wanda's quest taking her into contact with a different national mystical champion in each issue but one, where she attends a therapy session which turns out to be something much weirder a ...more

The second installment into the current story of The Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff. Wanda is still searching for reasons for why magic is broken. Her search takes her to France and it’s local superhero.

Although the art changes throughout each book in the graphic novel it does not really take away from the story. The most emotional story in this volume is the conversation between Wanda and her brother Pietro aka Quicksilver. I loved their interaction with each other.

I realized I was reading the second one too late, because I am the world's biggest idiot, but I still manager to understand pretty much everything (i think) exception that part where Scarlet kisses Captain America?? I know it's a flash back, and I'm pretty sûre it's from another séries but still. Confusing. I guess my problem with this entry is the same I have with a lot of comics: I don't read enough of the big installment and miss on a lot.

but robinson did his best. he turned the nazi stupidity into wanda needing therapy because she was made a freaking nazi, and turned civil war ii into a story about toxic family.

I was going to read volumes 1-3 of this series, but the blandness of the first volume plus the beginning of this one turned me off. The meaningless quest. The blah family reunion. It left me cold. I never finished this one and I certainly didn't go on to the third one.

However... there was one genius bit that I really appreciated. Wanda decided to visit a therapist. There's twist at the end that's very amusing but even before that, the way the therapist handles her is delightful and if they'd sta
Wanda on a travelogue. And the Wu in Hong Kong. I went back and re-read my review for the last book to compare. And basically this book was more of the same. But still good and I guess I'm hoping to stop being surprised by good Scarlet Witch books. In this one we see lots of dialogue - between her and a therapist, her and her brother, her and the people she encounters. And we see Kyoto and Hong Kong and New York. But throughout it has a good feel to it, like the writer is enjoying exploring the ...more

I love Scarlet Witch, so I will forever read any comic with her name on it. However, I am not 100% sure I like this series. I definitely enjoyed this volume better than the first one, there were definitely some solid stories here. But only one or two really left an impression on me. And her parentage is definitely something that means a lot to Wanda, but it got a little tiresome. And I definitely don't understand why that needed to be retconned in the first place.

The art in this book continues to be fantastic. This collection we get Marguerite Sauvage, Annie Wu, Tula Lotay, Joëlle Jones, and Kei Zama. The stories continue to be okay, nothing too special, though I am enjoying the world tour because a) it’s drawn by amazing artists, and b) we’re meeting a bunch of international characters, most of them quite magicky (the Wu is like a John Woo movie made flesh, and yes, that is as awesome as it sounds). Also, Wanda kicks Pietro’s ass for being jerk, and tha ...more

I liked this one. It's basically all standalone stories with a different artist on each. I liked all the artists, but Tula Lotay and Kei Zama were my favorites. I was worried that the Civil War II tie-in issue would be a waste of time, but Robinson managed to get a good story out of it. As one other reviewer pointed out, there are a lot of conversations in this book, and not as much action as you'd normally see in a superhero book, but that's fine with me.

The wining card of this book is the rotating artists for each issue. And "World of Witchcraft" features an all-female round of artist, giving life to different magic corners of the Marvel U. Robinson continues to deliver a good revision of Wanda, and an earned evoution from her one-note, deux-ex-machina character, mainstream remembers her for.

Esta es una historia intimista sobre Wanda Maximoff, pero por eso mismo, es una historia lenta, que se va desarrollando poco a poco, hasta que explote en el próximo volumen. Las diferentes mitologías que abarca con diferentes dibujos es impresionante, al igual que el arte. Definitivamente, una gran lectura.

Equally as pointless as the first. Only finishing this series because I bought them all in a state of denial. Barely any overarching story. Basically just a bunch of heartless one shots that in no way make you care about anything whatsoever. Seriously. This is so bad. I don’t know who would ever give this series the green light.

But at least the art is nice?
