Witchblade review by Chris Blair

Directed by Yoshimitsu Ohashi, Witchblade is a twenty-four episode series based on the original creation by Marc Silvestri of Top Cow Productions. In taking this property, which has already seen an adaptation into live action form in the US, Gonzo opted to use the basic concepts and ideas and create a new original story alongside Top Cow. The end result is something that has some very solid ties to what has come before but has to stand on its own. Having been a fan of the Witchblade comics when they came out in those heady days of Image Comics, seeing this sort of adaptation of the franchise is extremely fascinating. So few western properties get adapted in this manner and that alone merits some extra attention. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
