Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) is back with a follow-up to his first original comic book series Lucas Stand.

Military vet Lucas Stand has been forced to hunt demons on the orders of his master Gadrel. Now he has finally managed to break free and strike out on his own.

However, his actions have garnered him a formidable reputation and it’s not just the demons who are after him this time…

Co-Writer Caitlin Kittredge (Coffin Hill) and illustrator Jesús Hervas (Penny Dreadful) return to join creator Kurt Sutter on the next chapter of his supernatural anti-hero.

Witchblade #1 is a New Spin and Getting a Second Printing

Fans fell in love with Alex Underwood—writer Caitlin Kittredge and artist Roberta Ingranata’s newest Witchblade host—in Witchblade #1‘s fresh spin on the classic comic series. Witchblade was first co-created by Image Comics co-founder and partner, Marc Silvestri, with Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, and David Wohl, and launched as an all-new series last week to overwhelming critical acclaim. It will be fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with increasing customer demand.

A journalist who thinks she’s seen it all… Underwood is a contemporary character with an already storied past—and an unlikely recipient of the ancient and powerful artifact known as the Witchblade—who immediately captured the imaginations of fans.

This new Witchblade #1 drops readers into the action from page one. 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 the power comes with a heavy cost, and Alex finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC. Demons are real and walking among humans, and every one of them is intent on taking out the Witchblade’s newest host before she becomes too strong to kill. But the artifact chose Alex for a reason—and she’s not going down without a fight.

Witchblade #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code NOV178001) and Witchblade #2 (Diamond Code NOV170871) will be available on Wednesday, January 10th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 18th.

Review: Witchblade #1

“LIFE AFTER,” Part One 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 the power comes with a heavy cost, and Alex finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC. Demons are real and walking among humans, and every one of them is intent on taking out the Witchblade’s newest host before she becomes too strong to kill. But the artifact chose Alex for a reason, and she’s not going down without a fight.

Writer Caitlin Kittredge delivers an intense start in a brand new Witchblade, with a brand new host and direction. The new protagonist Alex is driven by a desire for justice and that’s evident through her work within the Witness Aid Service Unit for the police department. Alex’s case involves an abusive police officer which unto itself feels like a statement by Kittredge that sets her Witchblade apart. Corrupt police. Spousal abuse. These are some weighty topics as a backdrop to an issue.

The art by Roberta Igranata delivers a somewhat grounded style to the first issue that incorporates fantastical elements to the experience. Igranata reveals snapshots Alex’s life, death, and her rebirth through flashbacks. And through the art it hints at the supernatural forces that are against the Witchblade. While it’d be easy to recreate what has come before, Igranata delivers a new visual experience that’s clear by the issue’s last panel. This isn’t what we’ve seen before and feels like something new.

It’s been too long since we last saw Witchblade with some false starts, but it’s nice to see any take and especially one that works so well in its debut issue.
