Book Description

Melusine is a sorcerer’s apprentice, funny and dynamic, who does everything possible to become a powerful witch. Unfortunately, she’s not always successful, and very often her tricks turn against her and her circle. Pumpkins, all sorts of monsters, a haunted castle, a charming prince—everything is there for the greatest pleasure of the readers. Girls or boys, nobody will be bored with Melusine! In this first volume, the charming little witch is working as a nanny in a castle in Transylvania. The lady of the house is a very bad-tempered phantom, her husband is quite a cool vampire, and the footman is a sort of Frankenstein with an exceptionally limited intellect. In short, nothing out of the ordinary...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi pumpkin. 3 Oct. 2014
Format:Paperback
I like graphic novels anyway so as long as they have good art,I love 'em.
The cover looks good and the first page is excellent,a mirror image of out 'star', Melusine.
This is a translated book from Spanish,I believe.
The first story is good enough to reassure you've made a good purchase.
The stories are usually just one page each with the requisite number of panels.
In this first book you can see the creators are finding their feet story wise but still have some brilliant ideas that they turn into nice reading.Oddly enough,Melusine is a 'bad' witch and she has an opposite number,Melisande.
We don't get to see her until page 21 though.That's particularly good story too.
The art is good and often great.The characters are well drawn and pleasing to the eye.
The background art is pretty good and sometimes add quite a lot to the overall quality.
Shadow is often used to good effect.
I'm not sure what age this is aimed at 'cos there's some neck biting and a bit more macabre,cat crunching.
All good fun if read with tongue in cheek though.
As another reviewer has said,these books end too quickly so it may be best to go for second hand.
That way,it doesn't cost a packet for a relatively short read.
I've read other Cinebooks and they are usually very high quality.
They definitely support re reading in the future.
Although I collect Graphic novels I sometimes donate them to the local X-Ray clinic children's book box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 3 Dec. 2014
By demarion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
an excellent work, very funny, with drawings elegant, stylish and a youthful energy. By this book already! (Warning- avoid books 20 and 21, the author went batsheet insane and destroyed everything that made the other Melusine graphic novels so much fun to read!)
5.0 out of 5 stars I Spy With My Mystic Eye--A Witch Girl As Charming As Carl Barks's Duckburg 1 April 2015
By The Mystic Eye Of The Hipster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Melusine is the most charming, witty comics character I've stumbled upon in years!
A student in magic, she could not be less like that Potter twerp. And whups the socks off Wendy.
Earning her own way in the World, working as an au pair to a married couple (he's a vampire, she's a ghost), she is still learning about her powers. Still, she is strong, self-reliant, & does not suffer fools too gladly (unless they are relatives).
I hope that FIFTY of these volumes are published.
This is ***FUN***!
Btw--Mel-ooo-seen. Say it that way. I think.
1.0 out of 5 stars Only Three Quarters of each page. 30 Jun. 2015
By Perfesser_Bear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what they were thinking, but they cut about 1/4 to 1/3 off every page -- the right and bottom of the frame. It's just not there. I want my money back; this was a darned expensive comic!
