Cutely drawn witch characters noodle around until the book abruptly stops without accomplishing anything except introducing everybody. It's all situation and no story.

Planchette can only do food magic well and needs help getting the ghosts out of her new home. Pinyon isn't very good at any magic. Sun is gruff with everyone because she has a curse that puts her only eye in her hair bun and she is working a bunch of menial part-time jobs. Babs is a siren who doesn't want everyone to be attracted to her all the time.

The title is Unfamiliar, but the plot is all too familiar as one by one these misfits all meet each other and start forming friendships and helping each other with their problems in their noodling fashion.

Not bad, but not satisfying on its own. It might be best to wait to read this until the next volume comes out in October.

Cute graphic novel

This is a cute graphic novel. 3.5 ⭐
The art was extremely cute, the characters had some inner-self working that's relatable. Plus I love stories about witches.

Pretty adorable comic. Plot-wise, I can tell this is a serialized webcomic though. The chapters meander from idea to idea with most threads suffering from a lack of getting fully developed or resolved. Things are picked up and subsequently dropped at what seems to be whatever the author is currently interested in writing about, making the narrative cohesion less tight than a volume that was conceived of and written as one unit. Still a fun comic with enjoyable characters, I just wish the plotting was a bit tighter.

Kitchen witch Planchette sets up in a new house, but it's infested with ghosts, and she needs help dealing with them. She consults Babs, Sun, and Pinyon for help. Planchette's storylines were my favorite (especially when she discovers the true stories of Alice and the ghost twins). I found the art a bit difficult to follow.

Cute graphic novel about friendship and trying to help those in need. A cursed girl, a kitchen witch, a half siren and the worst witch come together to help each other find their true paths/selves. The storyline was a little confusing in the beginning but was able to follow along after a while. I hope the second book is put out soon…the author left me hanging!

Humor, friendship, and a touch of magical fun swirl around the most loveable characters to create a spell-binding tale.

Planchette is a kitchen witch and extremely excited to move into her new, very cheaply purchased home...that is until she realizes it's haunted. The ghosts refuse to be kicked-out, so off Planchette goes to find some help. After all, the entire town is known as a magical place. While she meets several new friends, most who are willing to try to help, it soon becomes clear that they're in over their head with their own problems. If only she could help...

This is such a cute tale with even cuter characters! It's no surprise that the webcomic has become so popular. Planchette is a little bit scatter-brained on the surface, but has a big heart and, somehow, does work things out...-ish. The other characters are also golden, each carrying their own quirky issues, which they really can't seem to get past. And yet, this is the most loving, caring bunch, who holds friendship high and wouldn't hurt anything if they even had to. It's warm, it's funny, and it's simply read to get lost in and enjoy.

The illustrations are very well done and balance well with the text. The graphics are no problem to follow and bring just the right amount of emotion and details to make the story sit. Each character packs personality with all the little smirks and poses to make them that much more lovable. It'll be fun to see where this group heads next. I received a DRC and find this witch super fun to visit.

Unfamiliar is a graphic novel about Planchette, a witch who has just moved into town but discovers her house is haunted! She enlists the help of some of the other witches in town, all of whom have unique magical abilities, and they work together to help solve each others' problems.

I really enjoyed the art style - I feel like it's not the kind of thing you'd see a whole graphic novel of, and I think the cuteness paired with the witchiness is just all kinds of adorable. The plot is somewhat formulaic, but I don't think anyone interested in reading this will mind all that much. This is the first volume in what will likely be a multi-volume series, and while the story definitely sets the reader up for what's next to come, it ends on a bit of a cliffhanger: be warned if you need all the answers right away!

Thank you to Andrews McMeel and Edelweiss for providing a copy for review.½
