    A familiar story gets a Marvelized twist as a familiar face makes their big return in another magical issue of ‘Scarlet Witch.' Colorful powerful fun is key to this series but the deeper emotional aspects are felt on every single page. This is a series that shows how any character can carry a solo with the right creative teams stepping up to the plate. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 5, 2023

    Steve Orlando continues the consistent excellence with Scarlet Witch #7. The return of Magneto's clone is given the weight it needed. The Wizard of Oz adventure in the middle also further showcased the versatility in storytelling with Wanda Maximoff as the series lead. Combining that with strong artwork from Lorenzo Tammetta the result is yet another example of what makes this one of the best comic books on the market right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Aug 3, 2023

    Steve Orlando keeps churning out this sleeper hit, and every issue gets a little bit better than the last. While Darcys continued presence is beginning to grate, seeing the Scarlet Witch square up against the Wicked Witch of Oz was well worth it. BUT BRING BACK PIETRO AND LORNA! All this, plus we get Wandas brand new villain HEXFINDER! Read Full Review

    It also doesn't help that the last few pages are given over to the upcoming GODS storyline and that has Jonathan Hickman writing it. It was a jarring disconnect from the rest of the book and with me having zero interest in this event or storyline, it's just a lot of junk that wasn't interesting in the slightest or seemingly connected to anything from within this book, at least on first read. It didn't make me want to read further either. Overall, it's a middling at best installment that offers up some interesting places for it to go with Wanda and the clone of her father – and how others will take to his being there. The book looks great when it deals with Oz and all of its designs and Wanda is her usual self so there's plenty to like there, but this is a largely forgettable issue when it comes to the story itself.
