Ok, I'll admit, I haven't really read a lot of WITCHBLADE. I'll also cop to not exactly being Ron Marz's biggest fan.
That said, I must also admit to liking this issue.
First and foremost, let me just say that Stjepan Sejic's art is nothing less than godlike! The man is incredible. I couldn't tell from the pdf files if it was painted, CGI, or both, but DAMN this book looks good, like a more stylized 3-D Alex Ross type of thing. Lots of Angelus in gleaming armor flying about in regal poses. Incredible.
