    Witchblade #178 does not re-invent the supernatural wheelhouse that allowed this title to thrive, but it does show how innately bad-ass Sara Pezzini can be. And for that reason this comic comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Witchblade 178 is a great book, whilst it is part of a larger story as a whole, anyone can pick up this book and have fun with it. Fans will be pleased to see Sara put the Darkness and Jackie Estacado behind her and move on into the future with new stories and possibilities. The art sells this book though, Marz's writing is a fantastic as ever but, Braga's art really takes this book to the next level to make this issue well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    In conclusion then, Witchblade #178 is another stellar issue from the excellent creative team that continue to keep the book incredibly entertaining. Newcomers wont have too much trouble understanding what goes on here even though it is the second part of an arc, and this reviewer strongly urges you to consider adding Witchblade to your pull-list if youre not already. It really is top notch stuff. Read Full Review

    Laura Braga continues to elate my graphical sensibilities every time a new issue drops. Her clear line work, bolstered by Top Cow editor Betsy Gonias colors, just makes for some of the most consistently enjoyable artwork in the biz. Ron Marz, whose run on Witchblade stretches back to 2004, clearly still has many stories to tell within this universe, and its an absolute treat to be able to watch his work unfold with such capable and enabling collaborators.

    Plenty of action but missing something at its heart. Read Full Review

    I lied, it seems. I am being a bit precious. But frankly, overall this is a wasted opportunity. Read Full Review

    Expected a little more but still enough to enjoy what was there.

    It's very bizarre the way Rooney's jacket changes colour from magenta to purple and back again, how does that happen? Aside from that the art looks good. The story is alright, fairly short because the issue is essentially one fight. I like it, it could just benefit from a little more substance and character.
