Preview Package

Both Angelus #6 and Witchblade #139 will hit stores this Wednesday, Nov. 10. Preivew pages of both can be found below.

Angelus #6 is the finale of the mini, bringing the storyline to a (hopefully) satisfying conclusion. After some health concerns that landed him in the hopsital, artist Stjepan Sejic is back to full strength on the issue, and I think it shows in the art, including that fairly stunning spread on pages 4 & 5.

The art for Witchblade #139 is by Eisner winner Michael Gaydos, probably best known for his work on Aliaswith Bendis. Michael had an available slot in his schedule, which made the decision to bring in a pinch-hiiter for regular WB artist Stjepan Sejic a bit easier. While Stjepan concentrated on Angelus #6, Michael penciled, inked and colored #139, and turned in a gorgeous job. The story follows up on the tragic events in Sara’s life revealed in Artifacts #1, showing the emotional fallout for Sara and those around her. You don’t need to have read Artifacts to fully grasp the Witchblade issue, and you don’t need to read the Witchblade issue to “complete” Artifacts in any way. But if you read them both, I think you get a bit richer story experience.

Hope you check ’em out.

Two new previews

Preview pages for Angelus #3 and Magdalena #1 were just released.

Issues #1 and #2 of Angelus sold out at the distributor level, so hopefully that’s a good omen for issue #3, which includes appearances by Jackie Estacado, a.k.a. the Darkness, and Tom Judge, who seems to have something of a cult following in the Top Cow Universe. It’s still very much the story of new Angelus host Dani Baptiste, but the issue also lays a little groundwork for this summer’s Artifacts series. It also contains one of my favorite lines of dialogue I’ve written in a while, something that would not be printable in a family publication. You can check out the Angelus pages, with art by Stjepan Sejic, here


The Magdalena preview shows pages 1-4 of issue #1, which is a sequence that was added after I completed the first draft of the script. We decided to include an introduction that would be the Magdalena concept more accessible for new readers. So these four pages serve that purpose, as well as introduce a plot thread that will pay off later in the series. The art is by Nelson Blake 2nd (pencils), Sal Regla (inks) and Dave McCaig (colors). You can check out the Magdalena pages here.

Angelus #3 will be in stores April 14, while Magdalena #1 will be in stories April 21. Advance copies of Magdalena, with a con exclusive cover, will be available at the C2E2 convention in Chicago, April 16-18, which I will attend along with Nelson and other members of the Top Cow herd.

Cheers,

Ron
