    Witchblade is soon coming to a close. I have a lot of fond memories of this series for many reasons, but I probably should have kept them as that, instead of trying to pick it up again now. Following the events of Artifacts, Top Cow's universe has undergone a big shake up and many of its cast members are starting their lives over. Sara Pezzini, wield of the mystical Witchblade, is among them. Now a Chicago private detective, she struggles with her new role and the annoying beat cop who always wa Witchblade is soon coming to a close.

Sara Pezzini, wield of the mystical Witchblade, is among them. Now a Chicago private detective, she struggles with her new role and the annoying beat cop who always wants to bust her chops. An investigation leads to Pez being accused of murder, but of course, there's more to the story. By that, I mean a group of people seeking immortality through an alien symbiote, and a coven of witches who want all the power. Interesting things are happening in this story, but not interesting enough to impress me. It's a whole lot of ghastly bad guy of the week after phenomenal cosmic powers, with little depth to their purpose, and lots of extra skin. Pez is still her badass self, and it's great to see her in better control of the Witchblade, but like I said, I'll just stick with my nostalgia instead of joining Sara Pezzini on her rebirth. www.Bibliosanctum.com

    Girls with porn-star bodies, occult powers, and pea brains. The sad part is that the art is good, along with the neo-noir/pulp background. But the corny lines are enough to make Schwarzenegger sound Shakespearean. For example, after a bad girl tortures her prisoner she says: "Something about the blood. It seems more intimate than sex. Maybe I've read 'Twilight' too many times." Witchblade is stuck in a weird limbo between YA and adult.

Still, I didn't mind the boobs.

    I mean, this was kind of entertaining. This reminds me of a sort of sexier Buffy the Vampire Slayer, if Buffy were an ex-cop who possesses an anti-monster murder weapon that, when activated, shreds her clothes in sexy ways. It’s kind of fun watching full metal Buffy dash about Chicago and kick the snot out of monsters and witches (except when her Witchblade conveniently stops working so that the plot can continue). This comic is in many ways aggressively anti politically correct, since our heroi I mean, this was kind of entertaining.

This comic is in many ways aggressively anti politically correct, since our heroine always wears the sexiest clothes, the tightest pants, and many of her enemies are even sexier. Like the witches who, I kid you not, strip down to give a sexy dance in order to change a man into a monster. It’s so dumb. Still, the story is kind of entertaining. I’m not bored like I was with Aphrodite IX, though Witchblade is pretty unstoppable too. Just in case you are enjoying the book, though, each issue ends with a two page short story (all text) about ghosts and supernatural events about characters that I don’t know anything about and I was too lazy to try to put everything together. Basically blah. Too bad my comic bundle came with like seven volumes of this stuff.

    It's one of those books which you would borrow from the library but wouldn't buy. Even though it was ok and the art was good, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

    Leaning slightly towards 3.5*, but like the mythology and overall story. Stylised art is clean and good throughout. Looking forward to reading book 2.

    More wonderful stories about the police officer with the most ancient and powerful weapon known to womankind.

    Sara is in a new city and stirring up trouble. I liked this volume but as an intro to the witchblade universe I probably could have chosen a better starting point. They do an alright job re-introducing characters but some are not as clear as if you had read earlier volumes. That being said, the story line is solid, and the artwork is amazing with some beautiful full page spreads that would be great as stand alone pieces of art. I will be reading more from this universe.

    The main story is an okay jumping-on-point for new readers. The backup transcripts at the end of each issue can be confusing if you are not really invested in the narrative. It has its moments, and since I think Tim Feely has done good in his more recent scripts, this is getting a pass justo to see were it goes in the long run. Very good art by Bernard.

    The writing is eloquent and beautiful, at times almost enough to make up for the tropey plot elements and gimmicks, the art is silly most of the time and occasionally beautiful. Overall, worth the read for the work put into the dialogue and excerpts

    I haven't read any Witchblade since the 90s. This Rebirth Vol 1 was on sale at my local comic shop, so I thumbed through it and thought I'd give it a try. I was already very familiar with The Darkness series, and the "Rebirth" happening in that series, so it was a bonus that it all tied in a bit between the series. Anyway, this was in fact a great place to start for me. The premise doesn't really require that you come to the book with any background, although it surely helps.

Anyway, this was in fact a great place to start for me. The premise doesn't really require that you come to the book with any background, although it surely helps. This is not a perfect release. First, the women are generally drawn in a typical over-the-top-vixen kinda way, and it gets old, particularly when a gang of biker chicks is involved later in the book. Second, I felt many of the female faces, including Sara's, looked very similar. Not a huge deal, but still. Eh. And third, some of the characters were pretty stiff, one-dimensional plot devices. Sara, however, was well written. I felt that I knew her pretty well after the 5 issues collected here. The art is quite solid throughout, and the story is not bad. The move from NYC to Chicago allows the writer, Seeley, to explore some of Sara's insecurities and weaknesses. By the end, I was actually looking forward to continued reading of this series. A pleasant surprise for me. If you like earlier Witchblade stuff I think you'll enjoy this as a fresh start. If you are new to the series, this is a good place to jump on board.

    I’ve always had a love/indifference relationship with Witchblade. I will adore it for a few arcs, then I will lose all interest in it. I was really hoping that the new Top Cow Universe would rekindle that love for the series, but the first “Reborn” arc was underwhelming. Do’t get me wrong, it’s a neat concept: taking Sara out of New York and having her deal with corrupted, bastardized versions of her own power and that of the Darkness, but this arc just never drew me in.

Do’t get me wrong, it’s a neat concept: taking Sara out of New York and having her deal with corrupted, bastardized versions of her own power and that of the Darkness, but this arc just never drew me in. There are places where the time and location jumps are extremely jumpy and ill-explained, and the art is too cartoonish to match the writing. I couldn’t really get immersed in the story because of the huge disconnect between the subject matter and the bright, animated style. I’ll give Witchblade one or two more arcs to rekindle my interest. If it fails to, I’ll probably just stick with The Darkness and Artifacts. Side note: Jackie Estacado created this universe in his image and rewrote Hope's story, erasing her as Sara's child and instead making her Jenny and Jackie's child. And, though Jackie has the power to scatter the Angelus host and apparently make a lot of folks forget him and what he can do, Sara still has him on speed-dial. Leaving Sara in his life isn't going to have catastrophic ramifications on Jackie's world later. Nope. Not at all.

    I used to read Witchblade some time ago but stopped when Danielle came on board. But after learning that TopCow was rebooting the Artifacts series, I thought I'd give it a try once more. The story was good and looks quite promising as a larger arc and the artwork was fine. I wasn't too thrilled with the writing and dialogues, though. Overall, it's a good start for someone who hasn't read anything from the previous series. I used to read Witchblade some time ago but stopped when Danielle came on board.

    mostly made sense, even to someone like me who knew nothing about Witchblade. My attention was held but constantly distracted trying to figure out how tall Sara was supposed to me. Her body doesn't seem to keep its proportions in relation to her environment. And then there's the coven of witches with no nipples. mostly made sense, even to someone like me who knew nothing about Witchblade.

    This is a great new start for Witchblade... I look forward to seeing whaere Seely takes the story from here. Unfortunately, Neither the writing nor art quite measure up to the standard set by Marz and Sejic, but I enjoyed tge story, and I love the new Chicago setting, and the fact that Pezinni is now not a cop, but a lowly PI.
