Dani Baptiste Is The Angelus, New Series On The Way

A new host for the Angelus has finally been found.

Have you been reading Witchblade lately?  We recently had the War Of The Witchblades and things didn't go too well.  Top Cow has announced that former co-Witchblade bearer, Dani Baptiste will assume her role as the Angelus in Angelus #1.  The first in a six-part series will be on sale December 2, 2009.
Angelus will be written by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Magdalena) and feature art by Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade).  In the first issue, Dani will return home to New Orleans and has to come to grips as the Angelus, a human bearer of the primal force of light.  To make things more complicated, Dani has to sort out her undefined relationship with Finch.
Ron Marz said the following:

Sara and Dani were really dual leads for the better part of the last three years in Witchblade, and I liked having both characters be part of the storyline. But now that we've paid off everything we'd been working toward since issue #100, I'm looking forward to Sara regaining the solo spot in Witchblade.  Moving Dani into her new role as the Angelus, and into her own mini-series, allows me to approach her character and the concept from a fresh perspective. Just like when I took over Witchblade, my goal with Angelus is to start with the foundation we already have, and build something new and exciting from there.

Angelus #1 will begin where the War of the Witchblades storlyline left off.  It will have a $2.99 cover price as Top Cow continues its pledge to remain $2.99 in 2009.

well i guess now the war against the Dark and light will come to a halt since the current hosts dani and jackie are good friends if i recall so yeah i guess there won't be anything to worry about as long as they stay as the hosts ya know but anyway i think dani as the Angelus is kick ass shes more powerful now then she was with half the witchblade and unlike the last host who was a total bitch Dani is a sweetheart which i respect in a human being well in her case half god, half Hot chick
