Sara Pezzini and Detective Gleason are back investigating the violent murder that kicked the Crown Heights story arc last issue. The lab finds some unlikely information, and more and more details related to the homicide are revealed. Plus, look at that cover by Stjepan Sejic. If you read ish 121, you will be wondering if the artist just thought it would be cool to have a cover that looks like a newspaper, or if there’s something more to it. I, of course, will reveal nothing, other than what you should know by now: Witchblade might just be one of the best comics on the shelves right now. Ron Marz crafts both interesting stories and formidable dialogue, those two elements coming from amazingly vivid and compelling characters; and Stjepan Sejic is as gifted an artist as they come. Witchblade is a book showcasing mystery, the supernatural, love relationships, and overall, humanity and what happens to people when both natural and supernatural evil strike. So go to the store and buy this series, which you can also get in trade (there’s five out already, I think—isn’t that convenient?). You will not regret it.
