PRESS RELEASE: Image Comics Reveals WITCHBLADE COMPENDIUM VOLUME 3A comics news article
EVERYTHING CHANGES IN WITCHBLADE'S THIRD COMPENDIUM
Full-color, 1280-page volume collects issues #101-150
Image Comics and Top Cow Productions are proud to announce that the long-awaited WITCHBLADE COMPENDIUM VOLUME 3, which collects fifty full-color issues, will land in stores June 27th, 2012.
Definitive WITCHBLADE writer RON MARZ (ARTIFACTS, SHINKU) along with an electrifying roster of artists that include STJEPAN SEJIC (ANGELUS), ADRIAN MELO (Ms. Marvel), SAMI BASRI (Power Girl), MATTHEW DOW SMITH (Dr. Who) and more, continue Top Cow's groundbreaking Compendium format with this massive, 50-issue full-color volume collecting the most explosive tales from the Witchblade canon.
Sara Pezzini, New York Police Detective and bearer of the Witchblade, discovers she is with child, gives up the Witchblade, becomes a mother, finds herself overwhelmed by the dark side of the Witchblade, and eventually finds she must choose between the Witchblade and her career — all collected in this volume!
"As a reader, I'm an easy mark for big, fat collections. So as a writer, I'm thrilled to have the bulk of my Witchblade run collected into one big compendium,” Ron Marz said. “The 50 issues in this volume really show the character arc we put Sara Pezzini through, from becoming a mother to making an almost unthinkable decision about her career as an NYPD detective. I had some great artistic collaborators in Stjepan Sejic, Adriana Melo and Sami Basri. Their work especially deserves to be preserved in this format."
WITCHBLADE COMPENDIUM VOLUME 3 is a full color, 1,280 page that collects issues #101-#150. This collection will be offered as both a softcover edition retailing for $69.99 and a limited edition hardcover edtion retailing for $99.99. Both editions will be in stores June 27th, 2012.
