Back in December I got to read and review Witchblade #140 and I asked this question: Why don’t I read Witchblade more often?
The art is some of the best out there at the hands of Stjepan Sejic and Ron Marz’ writing is some of the best in the Image/Top Cow Universe. Now with issue #141, I have to say that I’m hooked and this is a comic that I won’t be quitting anytime soon.
If you read my review for issue #140, you may remember that the team of Sara Pezzini (Witchblade ) and Patrick Gleason are investigating the death of a hotel doorman when they come across two rich kid’s with a very odd power. Whatever they draw, will come to life and of course, they don’t draw cute little bunnies either. They draw up some of the worst looking monsters in anyone’s nightmares. With Sara fighting off one of the monsters in the streets, she sends Gleason to go stop the kids from creating anything else. They know he is coming for them, so they create another monster to stop him. Before he gets eaten alive, Sara shows up and kills this monster. The little boy then tries to make something else, but he is stopped before he is able to draw up anything else. The dad is then confronted about his kids, which he doesn’t seem to know they had these powers. However, the nanny did know. She was afraid of the children because she was afraid she would lose this job and be send back to her home country or worse, killed like the last nanny was. Our story ends with Sara calling in someone from Hunter Killer to take the kids to be studied and learn how the powers work.
To sum it all up, this was a great comic arc, even if it was only two issues. I would have given issue #140 5 ( outta 5 ) stars and this issue deserves just a little less, so I’d give it 4.5 stars.
