This item:Scarlet Witch Vol. 2 by James Robinson Paperback £1. 4. The Scarlet Witch series continues in World of Witchcraft and the comics in this collection are far better on character development than offering exciting plots. Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). Simply put, this is not a good jumping on point though James Robinson does offer an interesting take on the main character. There are some solid moments to be sure but a lot of this book involves heavy conversations even as our heroine travels across the world to grapple with the strange collapse of magic in the Marvel Universe.

The three fates, dark witch-goddesses of ancient Greece, seek revenge after their followers are savagely raped and slaughtered by barbarians. Across the generations, the witches' priestess is reborn with one purpose--to slay the reincarnation of the barbarian's chief, with subtle aide from the witches themselves. Ranging from ancient times to modern London, this haunting tale weaves a dark spell in the tradition of Vertigo's Sandman. Graphic novel format. Available in September.

As always, James (Starman) Robinson delivers the goods. A darkly beautiful tale of revenge through different reincarnations overseen by three powerful witches seeking the ultimate revenge on the man who murdered one of their flock.
Even though it is a tale of revenge there is a heavy underscore of the age old battle of man versus woman, power, sex and growth.
Not one you could sit back and read for fun as it deals in mature themes but it is one that is well worth a look if you are interested in magic, witchcraft and the need for a different style of comic. This book should appeal to fans of Sandman, with the storytelling of the various incarnations of revenge. I loved all three different artists (one for each different chapter) with each chapter being darly beautiful and exciting. This book does deal with mature themes, it's definitely not one for the kids!

Ursula was a priestess to the triple goddess in the early days of Roman Britain. When she and her pagan sisters are raped and murdered by a band of massive and brutish Picts (by all reports a race of small people), Ursula cries for vengeance against her killer in a future life.

The triple goddess Hecate, here portrayed along the lines of Neil Gaiman's take on the Fates, complies -- but she/they take their time in doing so. Because of some vague "rules" (which are poorly explained even by the goddesses themselves), Ursula must take revenge on Cooth herself, and the deed must occur in Londinium (London), where the initial rape and murder took place. Never mind that Cooth, in his future incarnations, might be a completely different, decent person; this book makes the assumption that a brute in one life is a brute eternally -- so much for learning as you go.

"Witchcraft" is an obvious attempt to cash in on the success and popularity of Neil Gaiman's excellent "Sandman" and related series, but James Robinson lacks Gaiman's deft hand at characterization. At the same time, Robinson's message here is highly questionable.

Ursula and Cooth are rarely reborn at the same time in London, so centuries pass as Ursula awaits her opportunity for some righteous smiting. She muffs her chance in 1342 -- so badly that she causes another slaughter of her fellow coven members -- and again in 1842, when she's reborn as a man, the adventurer Richard Burton, and chooses to forgo revenge for another turn of the wheel. The Fates, meanwhile, hem and natter, but do little to move the story along.

Finally in the 1990s does Ursula get her chance. Cooth has been reborn as another scoundrel, this one perhaps the worst of the lot, and only after Cooth/Ursula, now a grandmother named Irene, and her daughter in this life, Gaynor, have suffered mightily at his hands do the Fates get involved and kickstart some divine retribution. Oddly, unable to get their hands dirty for the past two millennia, they seem to have no qualms about getting involved now.

"Witchcraft," first printed in 1994 and collected in 1996, attempts to be a story about strong feminine spirit, but I think Robinson should have talked with a few women before writing his plot. The story seems to suggest that women are pretty much always victims (with an occasional rape thrown in to titillate the boys) unless some divine beings come along to save the day. That -- along with the blatant man-as-savage overtones -- is hardly a message of gender equality. Robinson's book is sexism of a different color.

i picked this arch at a local convention i frequent every once in a while. what first attracted me to it was the artwork. The images are very well done and really match the tone of the book. many comics have a great cover and the inside pages look like crap, this on the other hand is as beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. The second thing that attracted me was the fact that it was an off-beat comic from the 90's, where there was a lot of different experimentation on what is and what is not a comic or suitable. Story wise, without knowing anything about witches or witchcraft or what it's like to be a female, you do feel for the characters and also feel engaged in the storyline. you don't know whats going to happen next, so there is a build up of suspense from page to page. also, there is a build up of woman power and such, though it's not in the normal terms. I enjoyed reading this series, wish there was an on-going storyline for this. it's pretty graphic, and the nude parts kind of come out of nowhere, so it's a bit unexpected.

anyways, thumbs up for this book, one the arch, it's cheap on amazon or ebay. worth it, to read something very different. : )

Although originally published as three monthly comic books, this collection shows brilliantly the wonderful versatility of the graphic novel form. Author Robinson manages to combine just the most apt amounts of lyric eroticism and spine-jingling horror in the intriguing tale of witchery and revenge across the centuries. The art matches well, from several artists in varying degrees of baroque-ness. This is a great deal of fun and a genuine reading and perusing pleasure. A vital addition to any collection of graphic novels, if a tad on the mature side.

I felt obliged to warn any browsers about this publication. I was literally outraged by this book. Perhaps its greatest crime is the synapses on the back which states that although containing .... material, the characters maintain their dignity (or some other wording, I don't feel like picking the thing up to quote from it). -- ! What an odd thing to say when nearly every "erotic" scene involves .... or unwilling submission (of women of course, or a woman reincarnated as a man). This thing was written by people who obviously did not spend any time researching what it is to be a woman, or a witch for that matter. There isn't a hint of trying to represent either of these groups accurately or with any respect. If the Triple Goddess were as vengeful as these guys make her out to be I would think that they themselves were in grave danger for the disgusting portrayal of her in this thing.
This book has no redeeming qualities to make up for such intensely irresponsible writing. It appears to me that the writers really just wanted to draw a series of.... scenes and other degradations of women, but maybe they figured that that wouldn't sell well, so they had the audacity to sully a potentially beautiful religion along with womanhood.
I deeply regret purchasing this thing and I hope you don't make the mistake that I did.
