Here at Geeks of Doom, we strive to provide our readers with the very best the comic world has to offer. And there’s not much that can top presenting to you this awesome Marc Silvestri cover for Witchblade #170. An interesting factoid is that it’s an homage to another cover that Silvestri did for Uncanny X-Men #251, all the way down to using the same color palette.
Check out the cover right here below.
Sara Pezzini, a tough former New York City Police Detective, is the current wielder of the artifact known as the Witchblade. Possessed by a single woman in every generation, this weapon helps to retain the balance between good and evil. Existing since the very beginning, it adapts to the user and the needs of the world. Sometimes seen as bracelet or a gauntlet, it is unrestrained by any physical limitations which gives the wearer amazing abilities and power.
This issue things take a drastic turn, it seems. With the return of Ron Marz as writer, we are given the chance to bear witness to a rebirth of sorts. For you see, Sara has evolved much during her possession of the Witchblade. But with the death of Jackie Estacado, possessor of the demonic force known as The Darkness, has the balance shifted? Only time will tell.
Here’s what Top Cow Productions has to say about Witchblade #170:
Sara Pezzini has been a cop, mother, a girlfriend, and a private investigator. She is none of those things anymore. The only thing tying Sara to her past and preventing her from forging a new chapter in life is the Witchblade. But with everything else gone, who is Sara Pezzini without the Witchblade?”
