Ron Marz Listens to His Better ANGELUS
For readers of Top Cow's Witchblade, the end of the War of the Witchblades has led to the character's mythology entering a whole new phase. And it looks like it's going to be a doozy.
But first, the writers have to flesh out a part of Top Cow's trinity that hasn't gotten as much attention as the other two: Angelus.
"We always felt that Witchblade and the Darkness have always been well-established properties for Top Cow, with animation and video games," said writer Ron Marz, one of the main orchestrators recently of the Witchblade universe and author of December's Angelus mini-series. "They've really been kind of the twin pillars of the company for quite a while. And the Angelus is supposed to be kind of this third part of that trinity of characters and concepts, but it's always come across as little more than, 'Oh, yeah, that lady that the Darkness fights once in a while.'"
