    Wanda Maximoff's journey to help those who are in need of helping gets a lot smaller and bigger at the same time as ‘Scarlet Witch' #3 takes the awsome series to new heights. This is the series that the character has needed and deserved for years, and it should live a long fruitful life with this amazing creative team who is doing wonderous things with the vast potential of a comic book.

    Orlandos showing a real mastery when it comes to handling Wanda. Shes self-confident in her abilities, as well as those around here. While there are some things, like the truncated fight scenes, and the lack of exploration of Wandas feelings towards Magnetos death that are the standouts, the character work here is second to none. Hopefully with time, and less one and dones, these issues will be addressed. Read Full Review

    With each passing issue Steve Orlando and Sara Pichelli are getting better and better at telling one-shot style stories that build up Wanda Maximoff and the new life she has built for herself. Scarlet Witch #3 is the best issue so far with the Polaris team-up providing us with a fun journey through Sub-Atomica. Along the way we get great moments between Wanda and Lorna Dane that taps into their relationship as sisters. It all comes together to further establish Scarlet Witch as one of Marvel's best series right now. Read Full Review

    Some bold storytelling choices are made in this issue, and they totally work for me. It helps that the overall series around these bold choices remains strong and engaging. Read Full Review

    Scarlet Witch continues to be an absolute delight and that has me wary about when the bottom might fall out from under it. Steve Orland is one of those folks that I trust to write a book like this but the crossover nature of Marvel is what keeps me away from so many of their mainstream books overall, as well as the way some come to such a quick and problematic end. I'm thoroughly enjoying this more languid approach to the character and their story and the small moments aspects that allow us to really connect with the characters. It's charming, engaging, and gives you the opportunity to enjoy it all the more. This issue also goes for a really good approach to presenting the Sub Atomica storyline so that it's not quips and action but rather something that has a fairy tale approach with great artwork and color design. The next piece with Darcy is going to be where we truly see what Orlando is playing with. Read Full Review

    Worth it if you are a fan of the Scarlett Witch and want to see her off doing her own thing. This series does seem to have strong emphasis on women characters in general. Maybe not as much as She Hulk but still fairly good. Read Full Review
