If you've been following Witchblade lately, you know we're fast approaching the end of the " War Of The Witchblades." Issue #130 marks the end of the arc and is due in comic shops on September 9, 2009. This also marks the 50th issue that writer Ron Marz has written (and the 22nd that he and Stjepan Sejic have done). This is what Marz had to say:
The book has very much been a two-character drama since we introduced Dani. We might not have had both characters in every issue, but both characters were definitely a presence in the book. At the end of this storyline, we'll be back to focusing on one character and that character's life.
There are a lot of different plot threads going on in this arc – Sara, Dani, Sara's sister Julie, Dani's friend Finch, the Angelus. And while they might seem like disparate threads now, they'll all tie together.
I will say this: when I kill somebody in one of my books, they stay killed if I have anything to say about it. Death shouldn't be a revolving door, because it saps the drama out of a story. Sara's first partner, Jake, took a dirt nap, and it's gonna stay that way. If somebody is really dead, they're dead.
Somebody ends up with the Witchblade, somebody ends up as the Angelus. But I'm not telling who. That's why we solicited three different possible versions of the Sejic cover to #130. Obviously we're only going to press with one of them – but the question is, which one?
Who do you think will end up with the Witchblade? Who do you think will become the new Angelus? Who do you want to get those roles?
