I haven’t seen Little Witch Academia but it’s on my to watch list. I might move it up after reading Hooky.
So welcome to my new feature! Every week, I plan to tell you guys about a webcomic I am enjoying so that maybe some of you will discover a story you like. For now, I plan to concentrate on webcomics that are posted by the author and as such completely legal to read for free over the internet.n I may eventually venture into scanslations or pay to read comics if I think something is really worth it but I wanted to give you guys some options that are easy to find and accessible to all. Since a lot of us are still spending a lot of time indoors, it’s a good time to expand our libraries a little with some new reading material.
I won’t lie, I started Hooky entirely because I fell in love with the character designs of the two girls. I saw it on the banner for the webtoon and I was all, who are they, I want to go to there. My reading motivations aren’t the deepest out there.
Hooky is a cute little story of friendship between witches! Little witches that aren’t all that up on their magic yet. And they need someone to teach them because apparently getting to school on time is way too much of a challenge. I’ve been there! Sadly no one taught me magic.
Did you ever want a cute girl version of Harry Potter? Ok so it’s not quite that but there is still a similar feel there.
It’s not just the character designs. Hooky is a beautiful webtoon. The cities and forced perspectives are all fantastic and just really interesting to see. Miriam B Tur, the author is a comic arts student and she seems to truly relish the medium. You can see comic book influence from many places and eras through her art. For a comic nerd like me, it was just a joy to look through each chapter.
But then on top of that, you have this sweet fantasy story and these two adorable witches. Basically, there’s something for everyone. See for yourself.
