    ::Howl's Moving Castle's Characters:: The Witch of the Waste The Witch of the Waste has been largely dormant for fifty years which is why it is such a shock to find her evil active again, although it seems likely that she is now under the control of her fire demon. She is ancient but continues to make herself appear younger. She also seems to out-maneuver Howl alarmingly often and is generally one step ahead of the game. Although she cursed Sophie and turned her into an old woman, she did ::Howl's Moving Castle's Characters:: The Witch of the Waste The Witch of the Waste has been largely dormant for fifty years which is why it is such a shock to find her evil active again, although it seems likely that she is now under the control of her fire demon. She is ancient but continues to make herself appear younger. She also seems to out-maneuver Howl alarmingly often and is generally one step ahead of the game. Although she cursed Sophie and turned her into an old woman, she did not intend to as it was Sophie's sister Lettie whom she was jealous of and angry with. Despite a fierce battle the Witch is killed at the close of the novel. *** Calcifer Calcifer is a fire demon and he is bound by contract to work for Howl. He is a well-intentioned demon as he has no desire to become Howl's master as the Witch's fire demon has become over her, and this is why he wants the contract to be broken. Although he feels he is kept in the grate against his will, once he is released he finds that he actually likes living with Howl, he just wants it to be his choice to do so and not his contractual obligation. Calcifer is a courageous demon and protects Howl and his group. He is the main example of the fire theme that goes throughput the book and also the best example of its symbolic nature as when his life starts to ebb away there is barely a flicker of flame from him, but when life is strong in him so are the flames.

    I devour them like apples. It is just so good to have more time to cherish the good, sweet and funny moments from the film.

    Firstly, I haven't read the written version of this book, nor have I seen the film. Also, in a desperate bid to find some Graphic Novels to read I didn't realise until I got home from the library that I had picked up volume three, so apart from the brief "the story so far" at the beginning I had no idea what had happened previously. That being said, this was pretty easy to follow the story, it didn't seem to start or end in the middle of a massive plot point or anything so that was good.

That being said, this was pretty easy to follow the story, it didn't seem to start or end in the middle of a massive plot point or anything so that was good. The art work was amazing, credit where credit is due to the artist/illustrator(s). The biggest issue I had with this book (which, again, I didn't realise until I got the book home) that it was meant to be read in true manga fashion - from the back to the front. Reading from the back wasn't really the issue as such but it was the reading from right to left which threw me off kilt a few times as I am not used to reading like this. I was reading the right pages but the wrong comic frame on quite a few occasions. Obviously this is a reader (me) fault and not the fault of the book but it definitely took away points from my experience of it.

    Die Comics sind eins zu eins eine Adaption vom Film. Und da ich das häufiger in den Kommentaren/ Reviews gesehen habe: Der Film ist genauso verwirrend und abrupt zu Ende wue die Comics. Das ist demnach kein Kritikpunkt an den Comics sondern am Film. Aber wenn man die Geschichte und das Ende auf sich wirken lässt, versteht man es schon irgendwann. Ich wusste nach dem ersten Mal gucken auch nicht worum es im Film geht.

Ich mochte die Comics sehr, da diese in Farbe sind und den Film wiedergeben, zum durchblättern und sich erinnern einfach top. Übrigens sind die Comis durch den farbigen Druck recht schwer. The comics are a one-to-one adaptation of the film. And since I've seen this in the comments/reviews a lot: the movie is just as confusing and abruptly over as the comics. So this is no criticism of the comics but rather of the film. But if you let the story and the ending get to you, you will understand it at some point. I didn't know what the movie was about after the first look either. I liked the comics very much, because they are in color and show the movie, so you can flip through them and remember it. By the way, the comics are quite heavy because of the color print.

(geee you must see Laputa 'the castle in the sky' or Zen to Chihiro 'spirited away', and howls moving castle won an award in the children movie in Venice and dont forget My Neighbor Totoro where the Ghibli adopted it's logo...i can go on and on about it and you'll get bored) Miyazaki sensei, ganbatte kudasai...arigato!

    This 4 book series is great. I love it. I like that it reads like a manga book and that it is stills from the movie used as the artwork. I absolutely loved the movie. This volume takes you from the meeting with Madame Suliman (Howl just shows up) to Markl asking Sophie not to leave.

    The adventures of Howl and Sophie continue as the Witch of the Waste and Suliman's dog Heen move into the castle. The castle has to move as Suliman closes in, and Sophie gets her own room.

    Why haven’t they abandoned the Witch of the Waste? I don’t see the point of keeping her around.

    Beautiful artwork, wretched story. Weakened the original plot, destroyed characters...the original book is much to be preferred.
