Witchblade To Return in 2021: Bennett & Kristantina new art-team
According to the current Witchblade Kickstarter:
The original Witchblade wielder, SARA PEZZINI, returns after five years since issue #185 was published. Top Cow is excited to resurrect its iconic series with a Kickstarter exclusive #1/2 issue featuring the new WITCHBLADE creative team: Marguerite Bennett (DC BOMBSHELLS), Ariela Kristantina (ADORA AND THE DISTANCE), and Bryan Valenza (DETECTIVE COMICS), cover by Marc Silvestri featuring the new WITCHBLADE gauntlet!
This is the only way to get your hands on this Witchblade #1/2 edition!
“After a five-year hiatus we are returning with an all-new series featuring Sara Pezzini as the Witchblade,” says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “This new creative team will start at the beginning and open a new chapter for Top Cow’s most prominent character.”
“Easy to say that I’m more than thrilled to be part of WITCHBLADE relaunch—and to be working with Marguerite and Marc as well,” Ariela says. “Hopefully, the long time fans of WITCHBLADE can enjoy Marguerite’s fantastic writing and my visuals as well. I’m very looking forward to collaborating with Marc to bring this project to life.”
“WITCHBLADE is iconic. I’m utterly delighted to be bringing Sara Pezzini back to her stalwart fans and honored to have the chance to introduce her to a new generation of readers,” Marguerite says. “We’re going through a world of cosmos and mythos, horror and sensuality, romance and danger — and I couldn’t be happier to be working with Ariela and Marc on making this impossible dream a reality.”
