Sometimes witches in comics have a difficult road to success, and that’s the case for young Coco.

Having grown up in a world filled with magic and fantastical creatures, Coco has a single dream: to become a witch.

It seems like she’ll have to spend her days working as a regular dressmaker, until the traveling magician Qifrey enters her life.

Qifrey knows how to perform magic in a way Coco’s never seen before, and soon she’s on an unexpected adventure into a world she could only dream of before.

Dragoslav, or Drago, is a 500+ years old non-binary vampire in the body of a child. Many, many years ago, they were cursed by a witch.

Drago must do whatever the witch asks or risk her wrath and be turned into a worm for eternity.

Fortunately, Drago hasn’t heard from the witch in decades and currently spends their days hanging out and being mischievous with their fellow vampire buddies, Eztli and Quintus.

That is until the witch’s familiar shows up with instructions. Drago must retrieve her grimoire and bring it back to her.

The catch? The grimoire is being guarded by Ayesha, a seemingly friendly witch, and her partner Sara, who is a vampire.

But is Ayesha really their friend? If so, Drago, Eztli, and Quintus don’t want to betray her and Sara’s trust.

Or, like so many witch comic books, is she tricking the three young vampires for her own nefarious reasons?

Fortunately, Good Boy is alive and well, albeit missing a leg from a nasty traffic accident. And it turns out the old lady, whose name is Jacks, wears Crocs and just sells bone sculptures online.

When disaster strikes, Aster knows he has the power to help, but only as a witch.

Will he be able to show his family that being a witch is not just possible, but also who he really is?

Everyone knows that Baba Yaga is a cruel old witch who lives in the woods in a house on chicken legs and eats children.

But Masha doesn’t believe that. She grew up hearing magical tales from her grandmother who insisted she always keep an open mind and remember that there are two sides to every story.

Then, Masha’s dad announces his engagement to a new woman. Masha, still grieving the death of her mom, is devastated – especially as her new step-sister is an absolute terror.

So armed with a newspaper ad from Baba Yaga seeking an assistant, Masha heads into the woods.

Once she meets Baba Yaga, Masha is tasked with several daunting tasks to prove herself. Is Masha up to the task?

In Baba Yaga’s Assistant, you’ll meet one of the most formidable comic book witches. But is Baba Yaga really as cruel as she seems, or is there more to her than meets the eye?

Do you like blossoming friendship books? Then Witchlight was written for you.

After a frantic first encounter in the local market, peasant girl Sanja finds herself the unlikely captive of Lelek, a traveling witch. Or rather, a witch seemingly on the run.

Lelek has been moving from town to town, ripping people off and scheming her way into whatever she needs. Right now, she needs Sanja to teach her how to fight.

And Sanja will help… provided Lelek stops her unlawful methods and learns to make an honest living. Even if that living means challenging other witches to single magical combat.

Coven by Jennifer Dugan book cover with illustrated person in red coat with flaming handsPin

No one likes being uprooted from their life and forced to relocate to another state on the other side of the country.

It’s especially bad when you’re a sun ’n’ surf-loving teenager leaving behind both your girlfriend and the waves of California and being dropped into the much-less-glamorous upstate New York.

To top it off, all this is because members of your family’s coven have been killed with what must have been magic, and you need to relearn your powerful fire elemental skills.

Hopefully, the killer won’t strike again too soon!

With characters and art both well-drawn, Coven is a rollercoaster of weirdness, full of some of the most entertaining witches in comics from recent years.

Spellchecked by Quinton Miles and Mauricio Campetella book cover with illustrated three people standing in front of housePin

You might think it would be great to be the child of one of the most powerful mages in the world, but then you don’t know what life is like in the Davenport family.

While their father Dwayne is off saving the world, his children Dawn and Dwayne Jr. are pretty much left to their own devices.

Not that it would be nice to have a healthy relationship with their dad or anything.

Dawn and Dwayne Jr. do have magic of their own, so they have that going for them, and they use it to keep their own small neighborhood relatively crime-free.

But something’s coming that will put them to the test, and may finally help them carve their own places in the world outside of their father’s absent shadow.

Written and drawn with a punchy style, you’ll fall in love with witch comic books like these.
