A beautifully-illustrated story about a girl who longs for magic in her life and learns that, on the inside, she already is what she wishes she could be. Reminiscent of Studio Ghibli, this lushly-drawn story was voted one of the top 10 manga of the year in 2018 by the Japanese manga industry.

TRIAL BY FIRE

Join Coco as she continues her spellbinding journey of magic and discovery!

After traveling to the mystical township of Kalhn with her new master to buy a casting wand, a strange, masked witch transports Coco and her three sister apprentices to an eerily quiet city. But they soon find out that they’re not alone, and they encounter a ferocious dragon! Do these fledgling witches have what it takes to defeat the fire-breathing beast, or will their plans and lives go up in flames?!

Story Locale: A magical world

Series Overview: In a world where everyone takes wonders like magic spells and dragons for granted, Coco is a girl with a simple dream: She wants to be a witch. But everybody knows magicians are born, not made, and Coco was not born with the gift for magic. She’s resigned to her un-magical life, until a traveling magician passes through her village, and Coco learns what what everybody “knows” might not be the truth.

Beautiful art and appealing story will remind readers of Kiki’s Delivery Service and other beloved Studio Ghibli films.

The artist has drawn variant comics covers for DC’s Batgirl and the Birds of Prey and Marvel’s Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, International Iron Man, Darth Vader, Doctor Strange, and Deadpool!

#6 on the 2018 Kono manga ga sugoi! Japanese manga industry poll.

Fans have already started cooing over the art for this series, making it a highly-anticipated license.

Two volumes and ongoing in Japan.

Ages 13 and up.

Kamome Shirahama is best known in the United States for her comics cover art at DC and Marvel, including such titles as Star Wars: Doctor Aphra and Batgirl and the Birds of Prey. Witch Hat Atelier is her first manga to be released in English.
