“War of the Witchblades” continues this week with Witchblade #128. Is Sara’s fate written in stone, or is there still hope?
Writer: Ron Marz
Artist: Stjepan Sejic
Cover Artists: Stjepan Sejic & Luke Ross
I love Stjepan Sejic’s artwork. Yes, I know I usually don’t start out that way, but it just needs to be said. Every frame in Witchblade #128, and every issue of the series, catches my eye. Every detail is great. I don’t know if I would be so entralled by this book if he wasn’t doing the art. I’m sure I sound like a broken record about this, since I say the same thing about Sejic every month, but it’s the truth.
Of course, I’m not dismissing Ron Marz’s writing, because this storyline in particular has held my attention for months. I feel like not a lot actually happened to move the story forward in this issue, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. At the end of Witchblade #127, it seemed like Sara was, well, totally screwed. This issue reveals her fate, and also involves the Angelus, Dani, and Sara’s daughter Hope. Just what role will Hope play in this whole thing? I have a few ideas, but I’m curious about what will actually go down.
Witchblade #128 will be in stores tomorrow. We’re only halfway through this epic war between the dark and light sides of the Witchblade, what is going to happen next?
