Even without the Witchblade secured to her wrist, Sara Pezzini cannot escape the corrupting influence of the gauntlet.

    Witchblade continues to astound as despite the fast pace it managed to show great characteristics as well as tease the future of the series perfectly. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Like the majority of the stuff coming out of Top Cow, the artwork is quite good and the writing is pretty excellent. Making a story like Witchblade, which has been around for more than 15 years at this point, resonate with readers is quite an undertaking, and Marz manages this task deftly. In the books addendum, Ryan Cady Top Cows production assistant has written a great little informational area called The Witching Hour with the intention of getting readers up to speed regarding some of the more complex subjects in the book. Its a terrific supplement to the book, taking its lead from Matt Hawkins similar stuff in Aphrodite IX and Think Tank, and for people like myself who have been out of the Top Cow loop until recently, its greatly appreciated.

    I would consider this a great jumping on issue as the story is well explained and the narrative contained with the front and back matter gives you a great idea of Sara’s on-going struggle. However it must be stressed this is a dialogue heavy issue with very little action I still found it intriguing and hope to catch up with Witchblade in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Laura Braga and Betsy Golina once again hit all the right artistic notes, showing Angelus' desperation that leads to less than virtuous acts and the determination on Sara's face. Read Full Review

    Good issue. Gorgeous art. This new direction has been great so far but I still wish Seeley and Bernard's run wasn't cut short.
