A CONTEMPORARY SPIN ON A CLASSIC COMIC—WITCHBLADE, VOL. 1 TRADE PAPERBACK WILL HIT STORES THIS JULY
The new story is packed with Buffy-esque action and Jessica Jones-like character drama
PORTLAND, OR, 06/05/2018 — Writer Caitlin Kittredge (THROWAWAYS, Coffin Hill) and artist Roberta Ingranata put a contemporary spin on the classic WITCHBLADE—first co-created by Image Comics co-founder and partner, Marc Silvestri, with Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, and David Wohl—WITCHBLADE, VOL. 1 trade paperback will collect issues #1-6. It will hit stores this July.
Gunned down and left for dead on a New York rooftop, Alex Underwood's life should have ended there—but instead, at the moment of death, she became host to The Witchblade, a mystical artifact that grants the woman wielding it extraordinary powers. But those powers come with a heavy cost, and Alex soon finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC.
Witchblade, Vol. 1 will hit comic shops on July 11 and other retailers on July 17. Check out the preview below.
