REVIEW WITCHBLADE #121
Marz and Sejic have done it again. I was expecting something to do with Broken Trinity. I'm enjoying that but it was nice to read an issue that focused more on Sara being a cop. This is something I'd like to see more of. I think the Special Cases Unit was a brilliant idea. It gives a reason for a couple of New York police officers to be checking out weird cases all the time.
As can be seen on the cover, the main portion of the comic takes place in an Orthodox Jewish community. Seeing this side of New York along with the racial tensions helps to give the comic that realistic feel that goes hand in hand with Sejic's art. What starts out as a seemingly routine investigation is bound to take a turn for the weird. Why else would Sara and Gleason be called in?
