Witch Comic is an Italian comic series written by Elisabetta Gnone and Giorgio Barbucci. The series follows the life of seventeen-year old witch named Fabiola, who lives in a peaceful town named Lugannino and works at the local hospital. She also happens to be a member of the Unaocaba; a magical order that protects the world from evil forces. However, when Fabiola's good friend, the mute witch Amparo, is attacked by an unknown assailant, Fabiola must learn what she really wants to do with her life. As the crime continues to escalate, Fabiola realizes that only she can stop it; a task which will prove more difficult as she falls deeper into the mystery and danger of the Unaocaba.
Although the art style of the Witch Comic might not be for everyone; this is a pretty damn good comic. It's drawn in a fairly detailed style that looks rather stunning. There are many detailed backgrounds that add to the sense of realism; the type of detail that gives the scene a sense of realism and makes the event believable. The colors used for this comic are also quite appropriate, and add depth and life to the events occurring within the comic.
What I like about Witch Comic is how the plot progresses and develops gradually, building up its emotional climax at the end. For instance, when Fabiola discovers the body of the assailant, we are taken in a slow-mo suspense sequence that slowly builds up the shock and confusion; building tension until we finally realize what has happened. When the culprit is finally revealed, the series kicks into full gear with intense action and intensity. This type of sudden change is very effective in creating excitement and anticipation for the next episode. It is also effective because it builds up the intensity of the characters and plot in such a quick time. The pace is so fast; we cannot help but be gripped by the whole story.
The characters in this series are all very real. They have their own backstories and backdrops that add to the emotional appeal of the comic. Their relationships with each other and the environment they live in adds a lot to the overall realism of the series.
What I think is most interesting about this comic is how it deals with the subject of Witches. It does not shy away from this subject at all, and in fact goes far beyond the stereotypes we usually see in comics regarding witches. The comic portrays the character as an ordinary person, who happens to have magical powers as well. We see witchcraft as only a part of who they are; they have normal lives and relationships as people do.
Another interesting aspect of this Witch Comic is that it takes us outside of ourselves and into the mentality of ordinary people. You normally wouldn't expect a superhero to deal with teenage pregnancy or mental disorders; yet in this book, we see an everyday girl going through all those things. The author did a great job of making you believe that the characters in the comic are real people. This makes it more relatable to an audience that may be a bit hesitant about talking about mental health and pregnancy.
What I like about this book is that the writer,arbab el-Rufaih, manages to weave an interesting storyline with a fast pace. There is no filler; the reader never knows when the next update will be. It's a great story that has lots of laughs and has been ranked among my favorite comics of all time. It's one of those rare story telling tales where the lead character is also the main protagonist; in this case, Witchblade Witch.
If you want a good read, check out Witch Comic #1. It's the perfect start to the series. This book will hook you and keep you interested through to issue #2. I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes; I love superhero fiction, and this one has a great story and great artwork.
