This issue begins with our witches hot on the trail of the magic thief that stole then sold their things.

First stop is to artist Arthur Boldram who bought an orb that according to Jolene is pretty damn powerful but it hasn’t arrived yet so the trio agree -somewhat reluctantly – to stay until it does. Arthur throws a party of the who’s who of young talent and the girls join in. Arthur is portrayed perfectly as the harmless but really creepy/pervy aging hippy who dabbles a little bit in magic, Claire doesn’t trust him and therefore is the only one who doesn’t enjoy the party and ends up playing mum with Jolene and Andy, she has felt something off the whole time and rightly so, all is not what it seems and it’s down to Claire to fix it.

Claire is Badass! Most of the issue she is portrayed as the’ fuddy-duddy’ one, she doesn’t relax, she doesn’t party, but wow when it goes pear shaped she doesn’t hold back. Really cool issue, I love how the trio work together and how their personalities clash (Andy pulling Jolene up for her abruptness).

Hopefully, all three girls get their chance to save the day and I sense big things for Andy and cant wait to see whats to come and to find out who the mysterious voice belongs to!!

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
