Preview: Winx

Brigid Alverson

Here’s a look at one of Viz’s licensed books, due out later this year, that will be a nostalgia trip for some folks: Winx, the story of five fairies who do magic and have girly fun, was introduced to American audiences six or seven years ago via an animated cartoon. (It was confusingly similar to W.I.T.C.H., which was another cartoon that became graphic novels.) The cartoon was quite popular among the tween set, and it’s likely these graphic novels will have a lot of girl-appeal as well. The first one is due out later this year; watch this space for more, and in the meantime, enjoy today’s preview!

    W.I.T.C.H. didn’t become a graphic novel. It was a graphic novel three years before the TV series aired.
