I had to go ahead and immediately write a follow-up review to my first column on Ron Marz's WITCHBLADE because I think he really hits his stride in this second collection. Basically, just like I think you need to stick with SANDMAN for the first two to three volumes before you give up on it, I think reading the first two volumes of Marz's run is essential to even begin to know whether his take on the series might be of interest to you.*

In my first review of WITCHBLADE, issues #80-85, I argued fr

Witchblade is one of Top Cow’s biggest IPs, by far. Unless I am mistaken, it is one of the publisher’s only two titles to have made it past the landmark 100th issue, and the only one to have made it past the landmark 175th issue as well. And one writer who has shaped this incredible run, more than others I’d reckon, is Ron Marz, who enjoyed a seventy-plus issue tenure before he got back on the title with issue #

Ron Marz's Witchblade is fun to read. Some of the stories suffer from strange pacing - often there's a long build-up to a very swift and abrupt climax. I particularly like the storytelling device in this volume of changing art styles (and artists) during flashbacks. The final story, which reveals the origin of the Witchblade, gets back into the "cheesecake" art style for which the series was infamous for in earlier stories (and still indulges in for their covers), coming dangerously close go "ey ...more

This story arc is a little too by the numbers. I suppose that applies somewhat to the first one, but the problem with this time around is that almost everything is self-contained. That in and of itself is not a bad thing, but the storyline (which I won't spoil) is pretty predictable and not quite as exciting as the first. I will give high marks to the smart talking parrot. He was very fun to read and probably the best part of this volume.
The best art of all has to be the one on the cover. The artist fully did all the drawings in some of the future volumes and it is simply beautiful, frame it up art.
I enjoyed this but found the first book better. This had a good story but the buildup towards the big event wasn't as well done as the first volume.
This volume is more of the same from the first volume of Witchblade by Ron Marz...but it still gets a little better.
