Witchblade #134
Writer: Ron Marz
Artist: Stjepan Sejic
Cover Artist: Sejic, Michal Ivan

I’m not really all that familiar with Aphrodite IV, nor do I know this character’s backstory. I have, however, been at Top Cow panels at conventions where it was announced that Aphrodite IV would be making an appearance in an upcoming storyline, and there was usually a pretty positive reaction from fans. She’s pretty distinguishable, what with the green hair and cyborg armor, and she also appears to be the only thing in recent memory that seems to pose a legitimate threat to the bearer of the Witchblade (aside from Sara herself).

As we saw at the end of the last issue, Aphrodite IV is back and stronger than ever. She’s being controlled by an underground corporation with super advanced technology, which makes the threat seem even scarier and harder to deal with. Sara’s sure as hell going to try and take her down, of course, but how do you take down something that can survive a rocket launcher to the face?

Once again the super team of Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic do a great job bringing this series to life. I really can’t imagine liking this series as much as I do if they weren’t working on it. Since this is the first issue in a three-issue story arc, there wasn’t a ton of action, but I think that will change right away when the next one comes out.

Witchblade #134 will be in comic shops this Wednesday, January 27. Since it’s the start of a new storyline, it makes a good jumping on point for new readers.
