If you’ve heard of the Witchblade comic book series, but have no idea where to start then here is your perfect chance.
Image Comics and Top Cow Productions are about to compile the first five books of the Witchblade series in WITCHBLADE: REBIRTH VOLUME ONE, a trade paperback that brings together Witchblade issues #151 – #155.
Coming straight off the back of ARTIFACTS #13 and WITCHBLADE #150, major events in the Top Cow Universe, and bringing together the creative team of writer Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH, BLOODSTRIKE) and artist Diego Bernard (The Man With No Name), this thrilling and action packed comic is taken in a new and exciting direction.
In the wake of Top Cow’s REBIRTH, Sara Pezzini has relocated from New York to Chicago and struggles to adapt to her new job as a private detective. Pezzini quickly discovers that a change of scenery and occupation hasn’t changed one thing… the Witchblade is still a magnet for the supernatural. Quickly drawn into a conflict between two mystical gangs, she must once again balance her responsibility as bearer of the Witchblade with her personal life.
