Joint Effort Between American and Japanese Publisher Offers Action-Packed Finale!
In February, Top Cow Productions will release Witchblade Takeru Manga #12, the stunning over-sized conclusion of the first joint manga production of its kind between GONZO and Top Cow. The series tells the tale of Witchblade bearer Takeru as she struggles to controls the new found weapon while defending herself against demons and foreign governments that seek to control it.
Witchblade Takeru Manga was originally serialized in the Japanese magazine Champion Red and written by Witchblade Anime head writer Yasuko Kobayashi and illustrated by Kazasa Sumita. For the US release, the artist and original publisher gave their blessing to have the entire series re-printed at American comic size, flipped to read left to right, and re-colored by Top Cow colorist Blond (Freshmen II, Velocity: Pilot Season). The battle between Takeru and the US government will reach its grand explosive finale in issue #12. Will Takeru survive the fight or will she fall as so many bearers before her?
Witchblade Takeru Manga #12 will feature a cover by Sumita created exclusively for the US audience and carries a SRP of $3.99. Additional information regarding Witchblade Takeru Manga can be found at www.topcow.com.
