NOOOOOOOOO!!!! That was my first reaction upon hearing the news that one of my longest-running addictions was coming to an end. And during its twentieth anniversary year, no less. What horrible thing did I do to earn such a cruel punishment?! How can Witchblade #185 be the end?
Matt Hawkins, President of Top Cow Comics and mega-badass, has been kind enough to offer up a few signed goodies for us to give away our readers. The contest is pretty simple: you vote on your favorite Witchblade cover and if it matches mine, you get a prize! No, wait…that’s not the rule. Sorry, my bad. The real rules are that I will randomly pick two contestants, regardless of their choice of cover (mainly because all of the covers are awesome)! But additionally, one of the folks who votes for the most popular cover will get the third prize. So, pick your favorite cover out of the three dozen shown here below, and send us your vote via Twitter. Three awesome Witchblade prints signed by none other than Marc Silvestri are available, folks…so take a shot!
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.
Each and every week, I, “Run to the hills” Henchman21, and “Run for your life” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 17, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Let’s see, what do we have for you this week? We’ve got robots and teen heroes and vampires and so much more. And I ran out of time, but you had better plan on buying He-Man and the Masters of the Universe from DC Comics, because it’s going to be awesome and also because Battle Cat. So don’t forget to buy it and all the other great comics on this week’s GoD List!
Though Witchblade has been an active title of Top Cow Productions since 1995, I’ve never actually read an issue before. I wouldn’t say that I wasn’t interested “” heck, the premise of a woman physically bonding with a supernatural, sentient artifact of great power sounds awesome “” I suppose that I just never got around to taking the leap.
This week, Top Cow has come out with a one-shot issue called Witchblade: Day of the Outlaws, written by Joshua Hale Fialkov and illustrated by Nelson Blake II and Dave McCaig. For a first-time reader like myself, this is a perfect place to delve into the mythos and get psyched about what’s come before and what lies ahead.
