It was a fun read. Officer Sara Pezzini has an artifact of great power called Witchblade, she doesn't know what excatly it is and how to use it and it seems The Witchblade kind of has its own mind too... Sara kind of wants her old life before Witchblade but they seem to stuck with each other. Sara Pezzini saves the world from some messed up cult of catholic priests in catholic church in this volume. The Classic Heroic stuff with horror elements and cops and priests. The art is beautiful and writ ...more

A great graphic novel in a series that I should have started a long time ago.

This is not my first time reading a story by Top Cow Productions, but this is my first introduction to Witchblade.

The story begins with a hospitalized Sara Pezzini and the mystery surrounding the circumstances that brought her there.

We are quickly introduced to two men who play significant roles throughout the story.

Patrick Gleason is the detective tasked with uncovering the events that brought Pezzini to her comatose

Witchblade has always been a favorite of mine. Maybe because the first introduction to it was when I was 12 and I saw a live action TV episode of it. Or perhaps it's because I love this strong female character. She's a complete badass. A smart, determined human being. Yes, there are some religious connotations to this piece of work (and for that matter all of Top Cow's comics), but it never glorifies anything - in all honestly it actually vilifies the church leaders.

This graphic novel is just gorgeous to behold. Every single page is glossy full colour. What a luxurious treat! The story is solid, but from what I can gather from the introduction is that it's a divergence from the comic book series itself. There are more modern refernces that date it after the conception of the Witchblade comics. The story is somewhat compressed, the entire plot playing out in these pages.

Routinely appalling cheesecake art...and surprisingly good stories. Ron Marz takes the bits and bobs inherited from other writers and pulls together a fascinating mythology and a genuinely engaging, sympathetic cast. Wish it were prose. :)

Bought the book, opened it, started reading and the pages started falling out like leaves on a tree during autumn. I'm not even sure I read it in the right order.

In the last couple years Top Cow’s Witchblade IP has become one of my favourite reads in comics. Whether it is Witchblade/Sara Pezzini in the pages of Artifacts or Witchblade or in any crossovers here and there, I’ve always loved her as a character. Sara Pezzini to me is one of the best female characters in comics, by far, easily a match for the greats such as Wonder Woman or Storm or Batgirl or Black Widow. And

That blurb is a little misleading. Sara wakes up from a coma and both her and her current partner are on leave because of recent events. She doesn't actually have a new precinct but she sets out on her own to find out what happened to her. The guy that tags along is doing just that, tagging along. He's not actually her new partner but IAB that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Beyond that I found the story pretty interesting although I couldn't help but think that I was walking into somet

This admission is really hard for me to make publicly, so I'm gonna just trust that you won't laugh, that you'll be nice to me (at least to my face), and that you'll reserve judgment for a few minutes while you read this review. Okay. Here it is. You ready? I love WITCHBLADE. There. I've said it, and I'm very uncomfortable. I feel like I just shouted, "I watch porn" in a crowded room, or admitted — just when there was a lull in conversation at a party — that I like reading Playboy — and not just ...more

this is a good graphic novel.I have read another graphic novel but this one was not as good as the Dark tower series. i kinda dont like these series they were not my type of style. When i read the dark tower series it was more interesting to me but that is my opinion. but i can say it does come with some thinking because there is characters in it that you dont think they would do any thing in the story.if i had to read another one of theae series i would look at them better. if you are into wome ...more

This was my first Witchblade comic and I went in without any familiarity with the character. My first impression was disappointment that a book focused on a female lead still had the ridiculous depictions of women where every one looks like they are ready for a playboy shoot. I understand this was rife in comics at the time but it's still a shame.

As for the actual book itself I was fairly impressed. Witch Hunt tells a super hero type story but without too much of the typical super hero tropes. I
This book manages to be good in spite of itself. Other than the main character, everyone is a stereotype (weird old Asian shopowner, pissy partner cop, secretly evil priest). Not being familiar with the previous Witchblade stuff, I can't comment on how this is related to the previous stuff. I can, however, say that this volume doesn't reflect the absurdly sexist costuming which is basically the only thing anyone knows about Witchblade, and for that I'm thankful. The art isn't the usual Top Cow t ...more

There is something funny about any media that has the central theme of female empowerment embodied by a character that is a teenage boy's wet dream.

Witchblade is an intriguing work and has me interested, but there is something about it that keeps me at a distance. It may be the drip-feeding of plot, or the fact that I'm reading the books whilst also watching the TV series (the differences between the two are noticeable), either way I look forward to reading more of this series, if for nothing mo

Up until I opened this book I had no idea what Witchblade was all about.

I'm still not entirely sure, but I know there are 13 people/beings who have the ancient power. The power is aware and can cause the wearer to do things they normally wouldn't do.

This volume tells the story of how Sara became the latest warrior to carry the power and how she saved the world from destruction.

I feel like there is another volume out there that mentions how Sara knows of Magdalena, since they had a very famili
I decided to read all of the new Witchblade issues since Ron Marz took over. He really really tries with it to turn this cheesecake comic into something thoughtful and full of rich mythology. This first installment of his writing is really just wrapping stuff up from the other issues, putting some of Sara's other stories to bed and getting ready to streamline the series. It was ok, but it gets a lot better.

I enjoyed this, though two things disappointed me. First, I thought the story was resolved very quickly after the set-up, and second, I had bought this book assuming that when it said "Witchblade Volume 1" that it would contain the first books, not start with issue 80. I now know which book to order to get issue 1 - 50, but it's a bit misleading.

This book was ok, but the story didn't really pull me in. I like the main character well enough, and maybe if I cared more about the plot, I would read further (I hear it gets really good). As it stands, this will probably be my only exposure to Witchblade -- unless the library sees fit to buy further volume. I might give it another peak then.
Okay, this might - might - have rated higher were it not misleading. Don't put Vol. I on the spine if the material covered starts in issue 80. Not exactly great form. I don't know if it was a retcon or relaunch or not. It's Witchblade though, it's pretty to look at, very straightforward. More or less exactly what I thought it would be.

And it was five bucks. Win some, lose some.
This is a great buy for any comic book junkie. The storyline is entertaining, the characters kick butt when they're not making witty wisecracks, and the artwork is fantastic. The binding on my issue started to fall apart as I first opened it, though, and I've reviews about other books from this title/publisher doing the same.

Really enjoyed this volume. Witchblade is a great story of police officer Sara Pezzini who wears the witchblade relic and fights off whatever demons are haunting her each day. I loved the art and the dialogue, although cheesy at times, added to the whole package well.

Pretty good first volume and a great introduction to the character. And the art is fantastic. Just absolutely beautiful pages and sequences. I have a lot of Witchblade to read, thanks to Humble Bundle, so...yeah. Here we go.

I think it was a bit confusing at times, though the story in itself kept me reading. I found putting it down difficult. It was just mind-boggling in such a way that I just had to see what happened next.

The basic premise of the series (this book is a the start of a reboot), is that a sentient/living weapon has bonded to the main female character. It protects her, but also attracts those the seek to destroy it, and her with it.

Mja. Niet zo goed als de Japanse versie, maar niet oninteressant. Misschien laat ik mij verleiden tot nog een deel, maar prioritair is het niet.

It had some good moments, but for a "Step on" story, you might as well just go get the original 1st volume of the series.
