New Ongoing ‘Scarlet Witch’ Comic Series Casts A Spell To Unleash Wanda Maximoff’s Full Potential
The Scarlet Witch will return in January in an all-new solo ongoing series!
A groundbreaking new chapter for one of Marvel Comics’ most beloved characters, SCARLET WITCH will be written by Steve Orlando, known for his thrilling current series of MARAUDERS (2022) and last year’s DARKHOLD (2021) saga, and drawn by artist Sara Pichelli, the superstar talent known for her acclaimed work on titles such as ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN (2009). Together, these two comic powerhouses will open the door to a new era of adventures, mysteries, and quests that only a hero with the jaw-dropping and unrivaled mystical abilities of Wanda Maximoff is made for!
After her redemption in the pages of X-MEN: TRIAL OF MAGNETO (2021), Wanda is reborn as the hero the Marvel Universe needs her to be! Making the most of her new beginning, Wanda uses her powers in a glorious new way and embraces a new calling to help those who need it most. Experience one of the most powerful sorceresses on the planet at her best in the series that Scarlet Witch fans have been crying out for!
There is a door that only appears to those who need it most, who have no one else in the world to turn to. On the other side of this door is a mysterious witchcraft shop. Friend or foe, human or otherwise, if your need is great and your hope is gone, you will meet the SCARLET WITCH! Wanda Maximoff is used to hitting rock bottom and now that she’s finally found peace, she’s pledged all her power to help others who are pining down. But when a woman comes to Wanda’s doorstep with the terrifying tale of a town gone mad, the Scarlet Witch will have to muster her wits and chaos magic to face an insidious threat!
“Ever since I first entered the House of Ideas, the Scarlet Witch has been with me – in fact, she was the star of my very first Marvel work, kicking ass, weaving spells and humiliating Doom in DARKHOLD! So there was no way I could pass up the chance to work on SCARLET WITCH,” Orlando said. “Wanda Maximoff has finally broken free from the shadows she’s struggled with for years. And now? Sara Pichelli, Russell Dauterman and I unveil the next chapter in her powerful, improbable and magical life. When you have nowhere to go… you turn to the Scarlet Witch. And God help anyone who gets in his way.
“You’ve been waiting so long for Scarlet Witch’s solo return! Pichelli added. “Finally, that time has come and I’m truly honored that my art has been chosen to make this happen. I can’t wait for you to see the book.”
