Witchblade/Red Sonja TPB

Paperback128 pages
Expected publication: April 2nd 2013 by Dynamite Entertainment


Join Dynamite Entertainment and Top Cow Productions as they bring two of comics most celebrated heroines together in one terrifying tale of loss and redemption. Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, and Sara Pezzini, the modern-day bearer of the Witchblade, must find a way to defeat a wickedly depraved being as old and dark as the cosmos in order to prevent the world from eternally becoming a true Hell on Earth. Witchblade/Red Sonja is written by Doug Wagner (The Ride, I.C.E.) with stunning interior art by Cezar Razek (Total Recall, Hack/Slash/Eva: Monster's Ball).


Witchblade and Red Sonja together? I was Curious how Doug Wagner was going to pull it off. I have not read the Withchblade comics before this but was an avid reader of the Red Sonja comics during my teen years.

The current bearer of the Witchblade, Sara Pezzini , is called to a crime scene at a church. Things go bad really quickly. One of the "Fallen" has been released from his prison. To stop him fromdestrying the world, Sara must find a way to defeat him with the help of Red Sonja.

The story line shifts from Sara in the present to past with Red Sonja and the bearer of the Witchblade, Nissa. This is done many times throughout the tale to eventually lead us to how Sara and Red interface with each other. It was masterful how Mr. Wagner threaded this tale through time. Czar Razek beautifully brought Red Sonja's environs to life with his artwork.

Overall this was an enjoyable read and after reading this TPB I will have to look into perusing the comics store to get some copies of Witchblade to enjoy.
