    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 12, 2023

    Orlando has been giving Wanda a respectably enjoyable tour of the Marvel Universe through the pages of her own book. It was only a matter of time before Wanda ended up visiting family. Shes going to be getting a visit from a more notable member of her family for issue #7, which should be great fun given Orlandos distinct writing style. Its been fun so far. Hopefully, Orlando can keep it interesting on all levels the way he does with issue #6. Read Full Review

    Doling out help to those that need it, no matter how far or how hard, is Wanda Maximoff's mission and it takes a personal slant in the latest issue of Scarlet Witch. Numerous changes expand the energy this series has already been radiating, creating something fun and bright living right in the heart of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - tcreadscomics Jul 12, 2023

    The Last Door concept allows Wandas story to be limited solely by Orlandos imagination. SCARLET WITCH #6 is the most ambitious use of the idea yet. Unfortunately, going larger in concept diminished what the series does best and the result is a weaker issue than the series usually delivers. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Schlesinger Jul 12, 2023

    Scarlet Witch#6 is a real treat for fans of Wanda Maximoff, particularly her complex but loving relationship with her son Billy and his husband Teddy. The issue is chock-full of gorgeous art by the unparalleled Sara Pichelli and continuously stunning color from Frank William, which all perfectly compliments the meaningful, exciting, and excellent dialogue by Steve Orlando. While not connected to a larger arc,Scarlet Witch #6 is well worth the read and delivers on its promise, serving up a delicious tray of family drama with a crisp sip of brutal action on the side.

    Everything that Wanda Maximoff has already overcome has only made her stronger. She is a survivor.Her moments with Wiccan in this issue are beautifully written andI loved seeing her dynamic with her son. Her son and his husband are trying to make things better than how they found them, and Wanda is able to provide some thoughtful guidance that made for an impactful scene.Wanda really got to shine in these moments with her son, and it was a great contrast to the fierce Scarlet Witch.Looking forward to seeing what else Steve and the Last Door have in store for the Queen of Chaos.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 13, 2023

    Scarlet Witch #6 is yet another example of this series being one of the best comic books Marvel is publishing right now. Steve Orlando, Lorenzo Tammetta and Sara Pichelli know how to tell a full story in one issue that can have a big scope to it while highlighting Wanda Maximoff's leadership and powers. The hook ending leaves the reader with a lot of questions to look forward to how Orlando will answer. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jul 12, 2023

    Ongoing artist Sara Pichelli returns from a brief hiatus last issue (joined this time by Lorenzo Tammetta) and they deliver inventive visuals made even better by Frank Williams vibrant, deep colors. The art team of Scarlet Witch hasnt been totally consistent since it began in terms of personnel, but it always looks good regardless, and thats always the best scenario for rotating artists. I suspect Tammetta did more of the heavy lifting here based on the aesthetic quality of the pages, but its not an unwelcome addition. Its a testament to Orlando, his various artists, and editor Alanna Smith that Scarlet Witch is probably one of Marvels best ongoing series at the moment and Marvel themselves seem to agree with me on that, since last months Annual was the prelude to their upcoming, Agatha Harkness-centric Contest of Chaos crossover event. This is as good a place as any to start if you havent been following along, but starting from the beginning would also be a great suggestion. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 26, 2023

    Scarlet Witch has an okay kind of issue here as I'm not connected much to the characters involved, it feels like a dangling plot being dealt with, and the artwork wasn't up to what I expected from the series. Read Full Review
