NOOOOOOOOO!!!! That was my first reaction upon hearing the news that one of my longest-running addictions was coming to an end. And during its twentieth anniversary year, no less. What horrible thing did I do to earn such a cruel punishment?! How can Witchblade #185 be the end?

First Look: Witchblade #179

Here at Geeks of Doom, we strive to provide our readers with the very best the comic world has to offer. And there’s not much that can top presenting to you this awesome Marc Silvestri cover for Witchblade #170. An interesting factoid is that it’s an homage to another cover that Silvestri did for Uncanny X-Men #251, all the way down to using the same color palette.

Check out the cover right here below.

Sara Pezzini, a tough former New York City Police Detective, is the current wielder of the artifact known as the Witchblade. Possessed by a single woman in every generation, this weapon helps to retain the balance between good and evil. Existing since the very beginning, it adapts to the user and the needs of the world. Sometimes seen as bracelet or a gauntlet, it is unrestrained by any physical limitations which gives the wearer amazing abilities and power.

Witchblade: Day of the OutlawsWitchblade: Day of the Outlaws
Written by Joshua Hale Fialkov

Cover by Nelson Blake II and Dave McCaig
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Though Witchblade has been an active title of Top Cow Productions since 1995, I’ve never actually read an issue before. I wouldn’t say that I wasn’t interested — heck, the premise of a woman physically bonding with a supernatural, sentient artifact of great power sounds awesome — I suppose that I just never got around to taking the leap.

This week, Top Cow has come out with a one-shot issue called Witchblade: Day of the Outlaws, written by Joshua Hale Fialkov and illustrated by Nelson Blake II and Dave McCaig. For a first-time reader like myself, this is a perfect place to delve into the mythos and get psyched about what’s come before and what lies ahead.

Cover by Nelson Blake II, Sal Regla and Dave McCaig
Top Cow Productions
Release Date: May 23, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a sucker for a strong, badass heroine. I’m not talking some woman that is half-dressed and somehow managing to pose with her boobs and bum in full effect (though, as a pre-teen, that might have been the case, just sayin’). I’m talking about a well written, driven character that shows purpose in her actions and is in it for the long haul. Well, The Magdalena #12 gives us just such a person.

Patience is, for all intents and purposes, not a big fan of the church with which she is so deeply affiliated. They have lied and betrayed her and her friends many times over. But as she is the official bearer of the Spear of Destiny, she is sort of stuck with them to some extent. She is also discovering that not everyone in the church follows blindly, there are others that continue to work for the greater good regardless of the intent behind the orders they are given. Kristof is one such person and one that she finds herself trusting in spite of her fears.

I have been a fan of Top Cow comics for years, unfortunately I have never had the chance to read this series before. Lucky for me, though, Dave3 sent the first ten issues to catch me up for The Magdalena #11. Like most comics from this company, it rocks! Plus, in this issue, we have Sara Pezzini… you know, the freaking Witchblade!

Our story for this issue revolves around Patience (The Magdalena) and Kristof (a Vatican agent) searching for not only a piece of the one true Cross, but also for the freshly stolen Spear of Destiny. Knowing she needed help, Patience contacted Sara for assistance. Not just the bearer of the Witchblade, Sara is also a detective… and pretty handy to have around.

The new series Witchblade/Red Sonja combines two of the comic book world’s most famous female warriors and puts them together for a major crossover event between Top Cow and Dynamite Entertainment. In Witchblade/Red Sonja #1 we learn that a quest for vengeance has led Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, into uncharted lands far from her native Hyboria. Her tale takes place in the past “in an age undreamed of” where she’s hunting down a beast who’s been taking female virgins for sacrifice. Meanwhile, in modern-day New York City, police detective Sara Pezzini, the bearer of the ancient mythical Witchblade artifact, gets called in to investigate the gruesome death of a Catholic priest.

Story by Tim Seeley

Covers by John Tyler Christopher, Dennis Calero
Top Cow
Release Date: January 4, 2011
Cover Price: $2.99

It’s been awhile since I’ve read the title, but with Witchblade #151 being the start of a brand new creative team, I thought I’d check it out and give it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised.

It seems that writer Tim Seeley has breathed new life into this book. It’s no longer the hot girl with mystical weapon fighting monsters book, now it’s the hot girl private eye with mystical weapon fighting monsters and solving cases book. And it makes a big difference. It’s nice to have the heroine be proactive instead of reactive for a change. As a covert “first issue” this book did exactly what it should have done — got me interested in the story and characters and hooked me enough for me to want to buy the next issue.
