Sometimes you just need a fresh start. The epic war between the light and dark sides of the Witchblade may have ended months ago, but that doesn’t mean it’s really over. Like any great battle, the aftermath remains long after the dust is settled, with some things never able to return to the way they were. Sara Pezzini is trying her best, though. She nearly ruined her relationship with Patrick Gleason when she was overtaken by the dark side, and is still trying to make up for it.

This month, Sara and Patrick decide to go on a romantic getaway to Vermont, with Sara hoping that some alone time will fix their problems, or at least heal their relationship a little bit. Naturally, the vacation doesn’t last long, as the town they are staying in has had a rash of disappearing children, and Sara and Patrick can’t help but get involved.

Witchblade #132, in addition to giving its characters a change of scenery, was refreshing for the same reasons. It was nice to see Stjepan Sejic get to depict something besides the usual New York City streets and environments. Changing things up from time to time keeps the story and artwork from ever getting stale, and it was interesting to see Sara in a more relaxed environment, if only for a few pages.

This is only the first issue of a two-part storyline, and I really liked Ron Marz’s take on a classic Grimm fairytale. I’m curious about where he’s going to take it next month. Witchblade #132 will be in comic shops Wednesday, November 11.

    I love Witchblade especially lately. It just keeps getting more and more complex and the characters are getting more rounded and interesting rather than annoying.
