Witchblade Annual #1

Top Cow have released a number of preview pages from their forthcoming - and long awaited - Witchblade Annual #1. The main feature has been written by Jay Faerber with artwork from Eric Basaluda and there is also a backup story about Ian Nottingham, written by Joshua Cozine and Joe Henderson and penciled by Sheldon Mitchell.

Plot detail from the main feature are sparse although writer Jay Faerber describes it as a ''detective story with supernatural elements ... it's completely self-contained. You don't need to know anything about Witchblade continuity to appreciate it''.

There's a choice of 2 superb covers - each drawn by Basaluda - I'll be taking cover A (shown here).

If you've been thinking about reading Witchblade but didn't want to commit to a whole story-arc then I think this 'one shot' would be a great stepping-on point.

Witchblade Annual #1 is published 6 May 2009.
