I don't know if you read my review, I don't wanna just repeat myself but I haven't read Witchblade in years. Since like issue twenty-something. I really liked the way it looked. I don't know anything about this Dani girl. I've never seen her in action and...I guess I shouldn't say much about her fight with Celestine in issue #109. Oh, and then there's Celestine. I know zip about her. I made a page for her but it seriously needs work. So 109 does have a lot more action compared to #108.
I really didn't know who Dani or Celestine were either, but it wasn't hard to get. I wouldn't call it a jumping on point or anything, but it's not confusing. I haven't read hardly any Witchblade (just early stuff and when she has Darkness crossovers) but I'm reading it so I'm not lost in First Born.
Celestine was just an enemy from a previous story arc. As for Dani... I personally think she's just annoying. I've been hearing rumors that she might actually become the next Angelus. But guess we'll have to wait till First Born comes out.
