    Witchblade #176 may not have Laura Braga handling the visuals but with a competent stand-in and a solid, albeit, predictable conclusion this outing never ceases to be anything less than engaging. In other words pick it up this Wednesday and enjoy a trek on the supernatural side. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Lanza Jul 2, 2014

    This wasn't an excellent issue of Witchblade, but it wasn't bad by any means either. It featured a solid story, and while it was resolved relatively quickly and simply, it gave you all you needed for a standalone issue while staying true to the series. I'm not entirely sure it convinced me to start reading regularly again, but it definitely changed my mind about what Witchblade is nowadays and I've got a new appreciation for the title. I'll definitely take another look at this book down the road. Baby steps right? Read Full Review

    In the overall scheme of things, Witchblade #176 is a relatively solid issue. While it may be predictable, Ron Marz offers some great dialogue and the artwork from House allows for this book to have a very dark tone and feel. At times, the title feels like a jumping on point for new readers, and you dont have to be familiar with the rest of the series to know whats going on. So as a result this book can come recommended.

    Maan House gets the unenviable task of following Laura Braga on art, but he has very little to work with. Using a thin style that's a bit like Jae Lee but with heavier shadowing, the effect does create a creepy atmosphere for a run-down park. Unfortunately, there's no originality in the layouts to compensate for being part of a holding pattern story. Read Full Review

    The artwork is creepy but it looks rushed and low on detail, I'm glad this was just a stand in artist. The story was going well.. and then it ended. It set up for a short arc that was never meant to be, so much potentially cool stuff happens off-page. On top of that, I think this may be the first time a villain has agreed to take the easy way out when offered.
