CBR: "Witchblade" Walks The Road To "Artifacts"
Homicide detective Sara Pezzini is one of New York City's finest police officers, but she has much more than a service revolver at her disposal - she's the bearer of the Witchblade, one of thirteen highly coveted Artifacts in the Top Cow Universe.
Created by Marc Silvestri, David Wohl, Brian Haberlin and Michael Turner, Sara is virtually synonymous with Top Cow thanks to her long-standing ongoing series, "Witchblade," currently written by Ron Marz. Soon, Sara will assume a central role in another series - "Artifacts," the 13-issue event penned by Marz and drawn by a team of artists including Michael Broussard. CBR News spoke with Marz and Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik to learn more about Sara's role in "Artifacts."
As an Artifact, the Witchblade represents the balance between the Darkness and the Angelus, the primal forces of dark and light within the Top Cow Universe. Thankfully, this burden falls into the hands of Sara, a character that Sablik described as the "purest hero in the Top Cow Universe, in the sense that she's always trying to do what's right in her mind."
