Witchblade is soon coming to a close. I have a lot of fond memories of this series for many reasons, but I probably should have kept them as that, instead of trying to pick it up again now. Following the events of Artifacts, Top Cow's universe has undergone a big shake up and many of its cast members are starting their lives over. Sara Pezzini, wield of the mystical Witchblade, is among them. Now a Chicago private detective, she struggles with her new role and the annoying beat cop who always wa ...more
I’ve always had a love/indifference relationship with Witchblade. I will adore it for a few arcs, then I will lose all interest in it. I was really hoping that the new Top Cow Universe would rekindle that love for the series, but the first “Reborn” arc was underwhelming. Do’t get me wrong, it’s a neat concept: taking Sara out of New York and having her deal with corrupted, bastardized versions of her own power and that of the Darkness, but this arc just never drew me in. There are places where t ...more
I haven't read any Witchblade since the 90s. This Rebirth Vol 1 was on sale at my local comic shop, so I thumbed through it and thought I'd give it a try. I was already very familiar with The Darkness series, and the "Rebirth" happening in that series, so it was a bonus that it all tied in a bit between the series. Anyway, this was in fact a great place to start for me. The premise doesn't really require that you come to the book with any background, although it surely helps. This is not a perfe ...more
I used to read Witchblade some time ago but stopped when Danielle came on board. But after learning that TopCow was rebooting the Artifacts series, I thought I'd give it a try once more. The story was good and looks quite promising as a larger arc and the artwork was fine. I wasn't too thrilled with the writing and dialogues, though. Overall, it's a good start for someone who hasn't read anything from the previous series.

This is a great new start for Witchblade... I look forward to seeing whaere Seely takes the story from here. Unfortunately, Neither the writing nor art quite measure up to the standard set by Marz and Sejic, but I enjoyed tge story, and I love the new Chicago setting, and the fact that Pezinni is now not a cop, but a lowly PI.
mostly made sense, even to someone like me who knew nothing about Witchblade. My attention was held but constantly distracted trying to figure out how tall Sara was supposed to me. Her body doesn't seem to keep its proportions in relation to her environment. And then there's the coven of witches with no nipples.
