My Pick of the Recent New Releases

With monthly or fortnightly shipping I don't always get my books the week they are published, so my pick of the recent new releases is a book that was, I believe, released last week (7 October 2009) - Witchblade #131.

No surprise there I know - I think it's fair to say I blog about Witchblade, in particular, and Top Cow titles in general, more than I do anything else.

I'll write a full review in due course, but for now I wanted to highlight the three stunning covers available for this issue: simply beautiful:

But will the gauntlet allow her a moment of respite in the wake of war and loss?
