    Last Witch #1 is an enchanting beginning to Saorise's story, one that is full of daring characters, creative storytelling devices, and magnificent artwork. Read Full Review

    As a YA book, The Last Witchpromises to be a great introduction into darker fantasy stories akin to The Lord of the Rings (1954) novels orCoraline (2002). A tight script, along with concise panel layouts, will makeThe Last Witch easy to follow for newcomers to the comicbook medium. And, though experienced readers may be familiar with the tropes used in The Last Witch, the deceptively whimsical art by both Nesterenko and Glass, along with the likable characters, should still interest adult readers as well.

    While the series seems to be taking a break for the time being, I'm perhaps more interested than ever before in seeing where The Last Witch goes from this point. Read Full Review

    The Last Witch is a bit predictable, but in a charming, Saturday morning cartoon kind of way. Read Full Review

    And I will also acknowledge that I'm not the target audience for this particular story. I think there are plenty of younger readers who are going to relate to Saoirse and will appreciate the pacing and the ability to revel in the picturesque world. Read Full Review

    Its a kids story with kid friendly art and a familiar storyline that is competently told and promises to be entertaining, but doesnt do a whole lot to inspire or innovate. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Jan 6, 2021

    There could be a great, complex, exciting series with The Last Witch. But the first issue shows a lack of detail, stakes, or compelling artistry. Maybe these qualities seem too incidental for kid's content, but there's a lot of great media for kids to consume that's exceptionally made, and I think they deserve better. Read Full Review
