The Sisters is about a group of modern day witches that live in the Boston area.  The mostly foul-mouthed O’Sullivan girls have a gift for magic because of their bloodline.  They live in a world in which witches live in a secret society that’s pretty casual.  The modern day stuff gives it a good twist and the sisters feel like characters with powers, rather than powerful people that are sometimes characters.

The strong female leads are fun and they have a lot of personality.  Violini and Richmond are taking their time and have so far posted two chapters and a side story.  I assume it’s all leading somewhere, but right now I’m enjoying the ride.  The artwork and writing are both very solid and I could see a really good graphic novel coming out of this.  Definitely check out The Sisters.
