Here we go with another advanced review for you. I've been enjoying Witchblade once again. I was away for too long. We do get a chance to catch our breath after the events of First Born here. Although I'm not saying there's no action. Heck, it starts out with an Angelus Warrior attacking. That isn't the end either. So I guess there isn't too much time for Sara to catch her breath. We do have to assume that some time has passed since Hope was born. We see Sara in her Witchblade outfit. Looks like she got rid of some of her pregnancy weight. Also there's the appearance of Jackie. According to Phil Hester, about six months passes in between First Born and The Darkness #1, so it makes sense that some time has passed here also.
I have to admit it's a little weird with looking at the art. I was getting used to Stjepan Sejic's art. The cover...Dani looks...different. On the inside we have Rick Leonardi's pencils. I'm sure you're all familiar with his work. I just always think of Spider-Man 2099 when I see his art. I keep waiting to see Miguel swing into action. Check out the preview:
(W) Ron Marz
(P) Rick Leonardi
(I) Kevin Nowlan
(Cov) Mike Mayhew
First Born epilogue issue! A new life has entered the world ... but that life, as well as the world, might be in more than danger than ever before. Following the shocking events of First Born#3, who will protect Sara's Pezzini's baby from agents of the warring Darkness and Angelus? Is rookie Witchblade bearer Dani Baptiste anywhere near ready for the job?
First Born architect Ron Marz (Ion, Samurai: Heaven And Earth) is joined in the final of three very special First Born tie-in issues by the veteran art team of Rick Leonardi (JLA, Superman Returns), Kevin Nowlan (Batman: Black & White, Superman v. Aliens) and cover artist Mike Mayhew (Vampirella, The Pulse).
