In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.
After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.
After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

Penguins are undeniably one of the cutest animals in the world, if not the cutest. The four cute and cuddly little fellows that we all knew since the first Madagascar film made it quite clear that they are more than just adorable, flightless penguins: they're secret agent spies. However, after three adventures and their own animated television show, it's quite clear that their little game of secret spies is just that: a game. While it's true that they got some mad skills in knocking out people and hijacking their rides, we're starting to think that it's all just dumb luck on their parts. Now that DreamWorks have given them their very own movie, with an equally fitting title of Penguins of Madagascar, we can finally see how much bumbling these little fellas are. Yet despite all of it, they're still the cute, fun, and attention screen-grabbing penguins that we all know and love.
Penguins of Madagascar is a zany, hilarious ride of a roller coaster. Our four lovable penguins may fancy themselves as super spies since they were wee little chicks rescuing an egg down in Antarctica, but when the film introduced a new villain, a new world threat, and a new team of (legit) super spies, we're realizing that the penguins are pretty overconfident and inept in what they do. But despite all of it, they somehow managed to use their wits and skills to wiggle out of trouble and save the day. Penguins of Madagscar is both an origin story as well as a spin-off on said penguins all in one package. It starts off like with a documentary scene of thousands of penguins marching on without any question. It seemed like something out of March of the Penguins, but then three little chicks decided to break out of their natural instinct to waddle and look cute by saving one little egg. This little egg would hatch into their fourth member, Private. From there, Skipper (Tom McGrath) the leader, Kowalski the brain (Chris Miller), Rico the insane (Conrad Vernon), and Private (Christopher Knights) the adorable, are inseparable. They are placed in a zoo in New York where they began their adventure from the first Madagascar film. A few years later, it picks up where the third Madagscar film left off. We don't see the other four friends in Marty, Alex, Gloria, and Melman as the penguins blasted themselves away to escape their crazy circus afro song, we do get four more Arctic animals as replacement. Calling themselves the North Wind, the members consisted of Eva (Annet Mahendru), Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), Corporal (Peter Stormare), and ever sharp-tongued Benedict Cumberbatch as Classfied.
Skipper and his brothers are informed that the North Wind are here to save them and all the cute penguins of the world from the evil Dave (John Malkovich), a purple octopus who was thrown out of every zoo in the world because the audience prefer cute, cuddly penguins to his disgusting looks. "I guess some creatures are just born to be loved!" And with that, Dave vow to take his vengeance by kidnapping all of the penguins in the world and turning them into hideous freaks! (Didn't we see something like this once in Despicable Me 2?)Oh, the horror! A world without cute, cuddly, fluffy, adorable, little penguins?! What has this world come to?! It's up to Skipper and his brothers to save their fellow penguins, but only if they're able to prove to Classified and his team that they are worthy spies and not just a much of kids playing around.
Penguins of Madagascar shows us just how awesome Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private are on their own. After all, they always steal our attentions away from Marty, Alex and the rest of the gang, but now it's time to give them their own film and it delivers. The jokes and not just one-fin flipped over as some parts are quite clever and original. The film is zany and fast as the penguins jump and hijacked one plane to the next, all the while trying to catch the dastardly evil Dave with the ever serious, but comical Arctic wolf super spy Classified behind them. It's hard to imagine that Benedict Cumberbatch could voice a fun character as this as he voiced the frightening dragon Smaug from The Hobbit films. Not to mention that he played a Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century in the lovable BBC television series as well as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game! Goes to show you that Cumberbatch is not limited by his skills, but is widely diverse and talented in every way possible! So much so that I had wished they had created a 5th penguin for him to voice in order to join Skipper and the others. Imagine Benedict Cumberbatch as a penguin!
Penguins of Madagascar is a fun, fin-slapping film in the face, but after a few slaps, it may get a little bit thin. But overall, it's a decent attempt to give more spotlights on our favorite penguin spies. If anything, I'll be flipping for more (not talking about the animated television version, of course).
