I really love this Svetlana (the artist), shes the one who created NightSchool The Weirn Books. Her artistic style is recognizable and characters are pretty cool, and with personalities too! Wanna start a new manga series, I suggest looking at this series :D

I LOVED this book. It is pack full of comedic wisecracks and just loads of fun. I love the Witch and Wizard siries( sorry, I am a terrible speller) and I whole heartingly enjoyed the book. P.S. The drawings of the character were almost exactly how I pictured them. (Though I pictured Byron taller and The One Who Is The One a cross between Lex Luther and Voldemort.

This is a great book to read. Not only are the characters and images well drawn and detailed, but the story line is easy to follow while still keeping you on the edge of you seat about what is going to happen next. I can't wait for the next book to come out! :P

This graphic novel is full of suspense and action. It took me only a day to read the whole thing. It's so good that I've even gone back to read some parts over.

I read the original story before this and I really liked it. So then i decided to read the manga version. I'm not a huge fan of manga, and the art of Svetlana Chmakova was pretty good. My favorite part about the Witch and Wizard series is the switching between characters, so you can get both of siblings perspectives in the same book. Sadly, you could not get that with the manga version. However, it was a refreshing quick read and i recommend it to any James Patterson or Witch and Wizard fan.
