Next year continues to shape up as another exciting year for the Marvel Universe as Scarlet Witch will return in January in a brand-new ongoing solo series!
Written by Steve Orlando, known for his thrilling current run of Marauders and last year’s Darkhold saga, and drawn by artist Sara Pichelli, the superstar talent known for her acclaimed work on titles such as Ultimate Spider-Man, this new series promises to be a groundbreaking new chapter for one of Marvel Comics’ most beloved characters, SCARLET WITCH.
Together these two comic powerhouses will open the door to a new era of adventures, mysteries, and quests that only a hero with Wanda Maximoff’s breathtaking and unmatched mystical abilities are fit for!
Following her redemption in the pages of X-Men: Trial of Magneto, Wanda is reborn as the hero the Marvel Universe needs her to be! Making the most of her fresh start, Wanda uses her powers in a glorious new way and embraces a new calling to help those who need it the most. E
There is a door that appears only 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, there you will meet the SCARLET WITCH! Wanda Maximoff is familiar with hitting rock bottom–and now that she’s finally found peace, she’s pledged all her power to help others who are languishing at their lowest. But when a woman falls through Wanda’s door with a terrifying story of a town gone mad, the Scarlet Witch will have to muster her wits and chaos magic to deal with an insidious threat!
In a press release from Marvel, scribe Steve Orlando said about the project:
“Since I first stepped into the House of Ideas, the Scarlet Witch has been with me—in fact, she was the star of my first Marvel work ever, kicking ass, weaving spells, and humbling Doom in Darkhold! So, there was no way I could pass up the chance to work on SCARLET WITCH,” Wanda Maximoff has finally broken free of the shadows she’s wrestled with for years. And now? Sara Pichelli, Russell Dauterman, and I are unveiling the next chapter of her powerful, improbable, magical life. When you have nowhere else to turn…you turn to the Scarlet Witch. And God help anyone who gets in her way.”
Series artist Sara Pichelli added:
“You have been waiting Scarlet Witch solo return for so long! Finally that time has come and I’m truly honored my art was chosen to make this happen. Can’t wait for you to see the book.”
