Announcement

At the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con International, Yen Press announced that they would be republishing the W.I.T.C.H. comics with a new English translation.[2]

Content

Each volume contains four issues, with the exception of volumes 16 and 19 which contain only three issues, and a few pages of additional content. This additional content consists of information about the main characters, detailed looks at the girls wardrobes and rooms, and instructions on how to draw the characters. Volume 16, instead of a fourth issue, contains several pieces of art which were originally printed with Issue 050: Forever Magic. Volumes 19 and 20 contain no additional content.

Promotional samples

Yen Press have released two promotional samples of the first volume. Initially, they released a free preview at New York Comic Con.[3] The cover of this sample was similar to the final version of the first Yen Press volume. For Halloween ComicFest 2018, Yen Press released a second sample.[4] This sample contained all of Issue 001: Halloween printed in black and white. While an initial sample cover for this sample which used the pin-up art from issue 1 was circulated, the final cover used the artwork from Issue 043: The Magic of Light.
