What is going on over in New York City? Sara and Dani, the co-bearers of the Witchblade, are no longer speaking. Sara has gone bitchcakes, while Dani has a new lady friend. The Angelus is still reeling from the loss of its host and looking for a new one. The mysterious Curator is… well… being mysterious.
Maybe it’s just another day in the Top Cow universe.
Normally, when two adults have a falling out, things might get a little awkward. Friends have to choose sides, feelings are hurt, and the bickering parties might act out a bit. When supernatural and potentially dangerous forces like the dark and light sides of the Witchblade are taken into account, however, it could be war.
I don’t think Jackie Estacado understood, when he destroyed Celestine in Broken Trinity, exactly how badly he was throwing the powers of the Top Cow U off balance. The Darkness and the Angelus are supposed to be on opposite sides, with the Witchblade keeping the balance in the middle. Now there’s no Angelus, and the dark and light sides of the Witchblade are taking over their respective owners.
This story is in good hands with Ron Marz, who has been doing an excellent job with Witchblade since he stepped in. Also, getting to look at Stjepan Sejic’s artwork is always a plus. Aside from being beautiful, I just love that Witchblade‘s visual style is so unique; it doesn’t look like anything else that I read on a monthly basis.
You’ll find “War of the Witchblades, Part 2″ in comic shops tomorrow. If you haven’t been reading Witchblade recently, better hurry up and get on board; I think things are about to get crazy.
