    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 on each issue. If you like to read comics about conversations, this is the book for you.

    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 been stunning, so I'm not going to grumble too much.

    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; you don't know what's gonna happen each issue as its very unpredictable, so much so, are you sure this is a Marvel title? Because it has indie written all over it; in a good way! Some Stand out issues for me, was the first issue where Natasha goes to Paris, and teams up with Frances Superhero(Ya turns out they have one), and a civil war 2 tie in issue, which was actually very well done compared to most tie ins(However major spoiler warning for that issue, if you have not read Civil War 2!). Finally I'll touch on the artwork; this was my major gripe with the first volume, although I've come to appreciate it as I have read on. Basically each issue is a one shot story, which each have a different artist, so your gonna see new art every issue. The variety is better this time around, also I felt the artwork for each issue, fits with what that particular story is! Overall this an amazing series, that truly is unappreciated!

    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 confrontation with her brother. She is becoming, arguably becomed, a woman who is strong in her convictions, will not be pushed around any longer, and is dealing with her mistakes of the past.At the same time Robinson again does his bit of delving into past legacies and creating new supporting characters who are so much fun (I would read more of the Aoi Master and his cast).Still enjoying a Robinson renaissance with this series.

    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. Doceniam wprowadzenie do fabuły Billy'ego i Tommy'ego, bo brak interakcji Wandy z synami to wielka wada tej serii. Jej wyjaśnienie, czemu trzyma się z dala od chłopców ma wiele sensu. Wzbudzanie poczucia winy wobec Visiona? Nie ma sensu za grosz. Dziewiąty zeszyt to równia pochyła. Wanda ma rozmowę z Pietro. I tu widać, że Marvel dalej nie umie ich pisać. Nie wiem, co jest gorsze, robienie z nich związku kazirodczego (ultimates!) czy dysfunkcjonalnego. Bo jeśli Wanda ma z kimś bardziej patologiczną relację niż z Visionem, to właśnie Pietro. Tutaj nazywają to przynajmniej wprost związkiem przemocowym. Chociaż też mam wrażenie, że nie wzięli nawet pod uwagę próby zrobienia z tego pozytywnego relacji. I to też leniwe pisanie. Dziesiąty zeszyt ma chyba najładniejszą kreskę jak dotąd w serii.

    [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 lot to unpack in each issue, and Robinson weaves in and out of continuity with ease. I especially love the Civil War II tie-in issue that has Wanda and Pietro finally sitting down and talking properly, and it's everything I've wanted for a long time.The fact that he gets a cadre of amazing artists to help out doesn't hurt either. There are issues here by Marguerite Sauvage, Annie Wu, Tula Lotay, Joelle Jones, and relative newcomer Kei Zama, which is an exceptional array of talent.Scarlet Witch is a book I wish more people were reading so I could talk to them about it without feeling like I'm gushing. Because I will gush, if anyone asks me about it.

    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 time.I do have a concern, though. It has to do with the whole (view spoiler)[Magneto not being Wanda's real dad (hide spoiler)] thing. I really appreciate that this series is acknowledging and exploring Wanda's Roma heritage, but just like the last volume, this included nothing about Wanda being Jewish. I'm worried that they're going to use the above spoiler as an excuse to erase that part of her identity.On a side note, can I take the end of issue...7, I think it was, as confirmation that Wanda is (view spoiler)[queer (hide spoiler)]? Because that would be pretty great.

    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. Issue 6 is drawn by Marguerite Sauvage and sees Wanda go to Paris. While there she encounters the French version of Cap, Le Faucon Pelerin who has lost his ability to fly due to the death of his wife Adele. Now, I'm not familiar with Faucon Pelerin or his backstory, but I hated this issue. The art is gorgeous, Sauvage has a very clean, romantic style which suits both the setting and the story, but oh man.... I am rarely a fan of comics exploring superheroes dealing with people who are suicidal because it always turns into self-aggrandizing and posturing which isn't necessarily how you should deal with a person who is suicidal. To make matters worse, the way Wanda deals with this is she literary brings Adele's ghost back to life so she could yell at her husband to STOP BEING DEPRESSED AND FLY. I think Robinson was going for romantic and while on some level I got it and felt for Pelerin, I hated how easy this was of a solution. And really? It's 2017 and we're still doing the women in refrigerators trope? Come the fuck on. Issue 7 is drawn by Annie Wu and takes place in Hong Kong. I loved this issue, if only because the character that Wanda interacts with is actually awesome. Alice Gulliver or the Wu was a badass, and so was her Grandma. I'm also a sucker for eastern magic and mythology so the villain was also awesome. This issue was straight out of Big Trouble in Little China and my only complaint was that it wasn't longer and also can we make Alice the main character? Issue 8 was drawn by Tula Lotay and it was probably my favorite art. It was clean and finally achieved that sort of magical vibe that all the art so far was trying to go for (that was only successful in issue 2 imo, and here). The story is set in New York where Wanda talks with her psychiatrist who spoilers turns out to be a thief hypnotist who has been making her steal jewelry. The ending was shite and way too clean and easy, but the bulk of the issue which is their conversation was fun. I love that someone finally called out Wanda on her entitlement, and how she is a terrible wife and a terrible mother. Don't get me wrong, I place the blame for this entirely on Bendis and Marvel's shoulders, but I really do appreciate when instead of retconing out the bad decisions from the character's past and actually make new, good stories with them. In a different series, one that was more focused on Wanda as a character rather than a side character each issue, this would have been an excellent peak. As is, the decision that Wanda supposedly reaches, is forgotten about immediately in the next issue. Issue 9 was my least favorite one. It's drawn by Joelle Jones, who don't get me wrong, is a fantastic artist. She draws such beautiful characters and detailed backgrounds, and her interpretation of Wanda is my favorite. But her art has this really... almost erotic tinge to it, and the coloring which is in all muted pinks and reds doesn't help it. It wouldn't be so bad if this wasn't an issue where Wanda and Pietro are fighting. So I shouldn't be thinking about the possibility of them kissing each-other when they are talking. This isn't helped by the dialogue. I don't understand what's up with people who write Pietro and Wanda like this. No siblings talk like this, especially not twins! Josh Whedon got this, X-men Evolution got this, why can't the comics? I hated the dialogue and their fight, it was so stupid. I don't care about Civil War II, I haven't cared about a Marvel event since Infinity, so all the backstory was either completely uninteresting or lost on me. As for Wanda agreeing with Carol... why? I don't even know what the fight is and I still think that's wrong. I just... I want authors to do Pietro justice and they very rarely do and I hate it. The last time I read a good Pietro was Mighty Avengers. That was an underrated series. And finally issue 10, set in Tokyo and drawn by Kei Zama. The art here is weird: the animals, environment and even Wanda look gorgeous, but all the characters, especially the men look awful. The story, like the art is uneven and strange, but interesting. Wanda explores the murder of an incredible warlock's life, a man so good that even his villains bore no ill will towards him. I'm not sure why he got turned (or reincarnated?) into a fox, but it was still a strange little story, nothing groundbreaking, but pretty solid. Before I go, I just want to say one thing. I still have no idea who Wanda is, and I can't put down the blame entirely on Robinson. The Maximofs have been wronged so hard by Marvel that there is only so much he can do with a backstory as convoluted as theirs. However, Wanda has very little personality and no real connection to anyone around her. She is a blank slate, and for a series dedicated to exploring her character, that's bad. I will finish vol 3 I think, just so I can say I have finished the series, but so far this is average at best, and not really worth the money for the trade.

    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 character, with some interesting powers and ingenuity. (If you haven't read that issue in Doctor Strange, World of Witchcraft includes that issue in the back of the book, which is nice).I also love the two issues that take place in Manhattan. In the first, we submerge deeply into Wanda's psyche as she visits a psychiatrist, Dr. Roland Grand. During this session, we encounter all of the heartache and pain Wanda has been hiding over the years. It really is quite sad yet beautiful at the same time. Dr. Grand also brings up many questions that we, the reader, might have about Ms. Maximoff, such as how she feels about her relationship with her two sons, Wiccan and Speed, two characters who are amazing in Young Avengers.In the second, we encounter Wanda's twin brother, Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver). He is a bit of an ass, so we can easily sympathise with Wanda's character in having to deal with him. Also, one can tell that the pain and joy between the two of them run deep, making their encounter quite emotional. This issue in particular also brings up Civil War II, so if you are a fan of that series, you will probably find this issue enlightening. I am not familiar with Civil War II, so this issue is quite enlightening. Also, this issue gives me a deeper respect and sympathy towards Wanda, whom I am starting to relate to on so many levels.All in all, I love Scarlet Witch, Vol. 2: World of Witchcraft. If you are a fan of magic, witches, and demons, this is a definite read, especially if you are attracted to strong female protagonists with complex backgrounds.

    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 background since the beginning of the series, culminating in the ending that it does. That's the one story that sticks with me, but yeah, like I said, it's only one disappointing issue that doesn't really have the impact it should.The other thing is that while I liked some of the artwork, I found myself annoyed with its inconsistency since each issue has a different artist. Nice covers though....And wow, Pietro is a hardcore, serious dick. Has he always been a serious dick?

    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 and more interesting. This is another great book. The single issue Civil War II tie-in with Pietro coming to summon Wanda to come join in the mess on his side is as effective a look at who Wanda and Pietro both are as I've ever seen in more than thirty years reading Marvel comics. It's powerful, true to the characters, and in many ways absolutely tragic. The issue was--in my opinion--an instant classic. One of the best single-issue stories I've ever read.

    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.What does break the flow of the story is how much time seems to have passed between each book. In fact the last story in volume 2 kinda threw me because Wanda is not in it but we read about a character she met in the second to last story.For someone like me who has not read any of the previous story arc of Marvel, like Civil War or House of M. I feel I am missing some important story lines but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying this series. It only makes we want to go back and read the previous tales.

    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 the artwork was mostly amazing, I liked that this felt like a TV show where Wanda visited new places to have adventures in! That was nice! And I am also really interested in the Wu, I hope she's in the next one as well!

    hovering between 3 and 4 stars... volume 2 brings in my 2 least favorite marvel events.... spencer's "everyone's a nazi" bs, and civil war ii. i have resigned myself to every marvel story dragging cwii back into relevance. i hate it. 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.the stories inside were less connected than those in volume 1, and while they were good (eyyy is the wu something or is she SOMETHING? <3), i look forward to wanda getting back on track & learning about her family's history.

    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 started the series with it, I would have been hooked. It was a great look into her psyche that made me grin. If only the rest has measured up.

    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 character and taking the time to figure out who she is.

    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 cover art is gorgeous, of course. And her outfits were pretty bad ass.

  • Andrew Huey
    2019-04-29 19:13

    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.

  • Roberto Diaz
    2019-05-13 21:05

    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.

    Actual rating 3.5/5 stars. I enjoyed this a bit more than the previous issue, but that was mostly because of issue #9 which did not only include a major fight and some very emotional scenes between the Maximoffs, but it also had some of the prettiest art I've ever seen in a comic book in my life.
