Witchblade #169



Comic series

Release date

September 4, 2013
Whatever your view about his take on Witchblade, he took it and made it his while attempting to give fans something new. That right there deserves some applause if you ask me. This still remains a Top Cow title that’s worth checking out!
Hey! I liked this issue more than I thought I was going to. I was pretty worried with pretty much every element of Tim Seeley's run coming together with one issue left, that there'd just be too much going on, and I'd just get lost, which to be honest, I was on the verge of. But! That didn't happen, and I thought Seeley managed to balance everything he'd been working with for the past 19 or so issues pretty well.
3.5 out of 5 stars
Tim Seeley pens the script and once more the scribe uses all the tools in his chest to bring this odyssey to a fitting end. His characterizations suffered a bit from time to time but for the most part in this release the pieces were used smoothly, as Sara Pezzini and her allies took on the Corruption Cataract. The dialogue is by far the strongest portion of this affair but there were quite a few times when wit or clever timing failed to give the necessary weight required by some potent scenarios. In short: the story told more than fit the narrative but there were bumps along the way.
