Review: Ravina The Witch

When opening a book so visually appealing, the tendency to just let it be only about art is grand. That would be a disservice to this dark, odd, lovely story!

Ravina the Witch is a gothic modern fairy-tale and Titan has proven to do unique work the courtesy to create a similarly beautifully illustrated tome.

Check out a video of the book here.

Talented visual artist Junko Mizuno creates a dark, fantastical illustrated tale featuring talking animals, giant birds and dancing mushrooms. When Ravina is given a magic wand by a mysterious old woman, she turns from a lonely girl living in a dump… into a witch?

The power of this story is the way readers stumble from one page to the other, by sheer visual force and remeniscent of Ravina – our sotry’s protegé – in the way she stumbles from phase to phase, from situation to situation. Ravina lives on a dumping ground, is kind to birds and to old hags and in growing up she stumbles into other situations, gets a home in new environments and developed a certain coming-of-age by the end of the book.

The innocence of Ravina is in stark contrast with the grim reality of the ‘real’ world with all the grownups with their hidden agenda’s.

The story creator/artist Mizuno brew is filled with lush art, with innocent creatures, with a message..

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
