When they say beauty is an eternal thing, they weren’t kidding. Meet the Angelus, they are the warriors for the side of light, one of a few that wield some of the most powerful forces in the universe, the other main two being the Witchblade and the Darkness (which are also two of the other major titles out by Top Cow Productions right now).
Danielle Baptiste could be considered your average woman, except for one thing: she is the current vessel for The Angelus, a source of power that embodies the bearer with the force of light. Before this though she had once held the power of the Witchblade, but those days are behind her. Danielle is returning home to New Orleans for a change and to reconnect with family. And to top it all off, Mardi Gras is going on at the same time. This of course means partying, parades, and costumes. But there is something else waiting for Danielle there, something that is hiding in the dark. Will the power of the Angelus be enough to fight off what awaits her? Or is her homecoming a death sentence?
Pick up Angelus #3 and find out.
Writer and creator Ron Marz (Witchblade, The Darkness) is joined by Stjepan Sejic (has done cover art for Battlestar Galactica: Season Zero,The Darkness, Witchblade, and Broken Trinity ) on the art, bring us a well constructed masterpiece of ingenious writing and breathtaking art to give us the third installment in this six-issue miniseries. I am a big fan of the work that comes from Ron Marz, and I love the trinity he has created with the Angelus, the Witchblade, and the Darkness. This is definitely a must-read, so drop everything and run and pick it up. I do not think you will be disappointed.
