W.i.t.c.h. was launched in its Arabic version in February 2004 by Dar Al-Nasher, from Dubai, UAE. The monthly magazine is titled TeenWitch (Teens) comic. It is distributed to United Arab Emirates, Saudia Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Yemen, Lebanon and Jordan.
W.i.t.c.h. is a comic book magazine about five ordinary girls with five extraordinary powers. Their mission is to protect the world from the evil forces of the Metaworld. To succeed, the girls have magical powers that can control the forces of nature: air, water, fire and earth.
But W.i.t.c.h. is also about the realities of growing up. The main characters are Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin (W.I.T.C.H.). Will, the leader of the group, can control and strengthen the powers of her friends. The magazine is targetted at girls aged 9 to 15.
