Comics Bulletin reviews Witchblade #124

Last issue Sara defeated a spectral horror that was decimating an orthodox Jewish population in New York. Dani confronted the abuser and would-be pimp of one of her dancing students.

I must sound like a skipping CD by now. Stjepan Sejic's artwork makes Witchblade a joy to absorb. In this issue, the tone of the story becomes darker, and Sejic casts Sara Pezzini and Danielle Baptiste in the constant glow of rain excited by lightning. Weather reflecting the character's mood is an old trick, but it's a good one. In the hands of a masterful artist, it never loses its potency. Sejic is such a master.
