Famous Monsters Previews Witchblade 131
Top Cow Comics begins a new Witchblade storyline in the series’ 131st issue, available in stores tomorrow. I’ve been given access to a seven-page preview, and it looks like this is a great time for new readers to jump on. Following the “War of the Witchblades” story arc, the Witchblade is whole again, with Sara Pezzini back in control of the unified weapon. However, it’s also hinted that the personality changes she underwent while wielding the Darkness half of the broken Witchblade may still linger, and will most likely come into play in future story arcs.
The new issue – or at least the first seven pages – is one part artful recap, to one part revelation of a new status quo, to one part setup for a badass action sequence.
