Review by Kathy LaFollett
Editor note: This is not the cover for this comic because I coudn't find the cover for this comic.
Well I feel like a dweeb. I've never read WitchBlade before. I thought it was a television show.
#83 with it's limited cover pretty much fixed that situation, though. Imagine it only took Top Cow 22 pages to make me an addict. I'm a TombRaider addict, too. I think I'm living vicariously. ((damn you Top Cow))
Sara Pezini in her old yet new form is an inviting lead for this reader. I also love Batman and Lara Croft for the same reason. The hero/heroine has a particular "characteristic"; super power, anger, divine declination to villain kill'n, whatever, and they fully and wholly embrace that situation and insane drive as we would embrace our latest fad diet.
I LOVE that. I LOVE a balls-to-the-wall, F-it attitude that smears the face of confusion with silence.
Sara and Lara and Bruce himself welcome crazy turns of events and people and villains and environments that would make the rest of us pass out in fear. But they jump in, eliminate the deal and walk off for a smoke, or a bite to eat, or just that badass strut into the sunset.
So yeah, Witchblade is on my reading list now and I highly suggest you give her a look.
