Two new issues out this week. First up, Magdalena #9, with art by Nelson Blake 2nd, Sal Regla and Dave McCaig. It’s the start of a new story arc, and a good jumping-on point, as we get back to a regular schedule on the book. The story is Part 1 of “The One, True Cross,” which is actually a concept suggested by my Witchblade collaborator Stjepan Sejic.

We’ve tried to maintain a globe-trotting aspect to the series, and this issue visits Romania, the Vatican and San Cristobal, Mexico, which is a town in the mountainous Chiapas region that I spent some time in a number of years ago.

There’s a Magdalena preview here: http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stories/1110/23/imagefirsts.htm

Also out this week is Voodoo #2, with art by Sami Basri, Hendry Prasetya and Jessica Kholinne. The story follows Priscilla after her departure from the Voodoo Lounge at the end of issue #1, and gives a bit more insight into Agent Jessica Fallon.
