This volume isn't very consistent as there are several artists working on it. Bottom line is the Witchblade gets a new bearer. The artwork is ok most of the time, so I can let that slide because of the highlights I mentioned below, but the story isn't all that impressive. We get it already: having the Witchblade is cool, but challenging.

Jake dies, but I can't really say I miss him as he was constantly in the way. The event leaves Sara sad and not scantily dressed. Her immaculate pregnancy is a d

Interesting to see a new bearer deal with the Blade...

Witchblade continues to shine. Something that shouldn't need to be mentioned in any book review, but is a problem with the first three volumes, is finally fixed. The previous three volumes' binding starts coming loose as you open the pages and eventually will completely fall apart. They stitched and glued the binding so that is not issue this go around (finally!). Now the Witchblade books function as nice as they look! Just like the previous iteration, there are major plot developments contained ...more

A critique leveled at superhero comics, one not wholly without merit, is that characters, by and large, don't change. Volume 4 of Witchblade, however, has change in spades, as Sara Pezzini, who begins the book pondering getting older and reflecting on choices made and roads not taken, realizes that she's pregnant and decides to give up the Witchblade. We meet Danielle Baptiste, the new bearer. In this volume Dani is largely whiny and abrasive; one hopes the character will become more interesting ...more

I don't know if I like this new girl. After Sara I've up the Witchblade due to her... Condition. We're introduced to Dani, a pompous, whiny snot who accepts the responsibility of Witchblade without thinking about it.

While Sara had her police instinct to fall back on, Dani has no transferrable skills that would lend itself to saving the world of fighting demons. I doubt pouting in her room is applicable.

I really hope Sara gets it back.

Side note: the art isn't nearly as slutty as the covers to

Ron Marz's writing is still really good (though I'm not sure he knows how pregnancy works), and the artists are talented...but this book has some of the most gratuitous sexualizing of female characters I've ever seen in comics. Granted, they are nice to look at, but it's also eye-rolling. I know that's part of the tradition of this book, but sometimes it's distracting from the story.

After last volume's amazing and unexpected climax, I think the addition of Danielle really spiced this story up and made it something I'm more excited about reading, as well as Sara's pregnancy.
