Top Cow and Bandai Entertainment proudly present the Witchblade, diving into the popular world of manga with this authentic Japanese series. Takeru is an average schoolgirl being raised in a Buddhist monastery by a group of nuns. Except for the forbidden wicked-looking claw locked in a box that keeps appearing in her dreams!

That’d make a relationship with cute Kou hard enough, but when a group of mysterious, black clad monks show up at the monastery, the Witchblade chooses its newest bearer! Originally serialized in Japan’s popular magazine, Champion Red and written by Witchblade Anime head writer, Sumita Kazasa, this uniquely Japanese tale is considered part of the Witchblade canon. Now collected for the first time for an American audience in standard comic format and in full color, plus this first issue is double-sized for the same low price!

40 pages, $2.99.

Welcome to the world of The Darkness. Captain Eddie Shrote is a corrupt cop and he’s made one critical mistake. He killed Jenny, the one person Jackie Estacado cares about. And Jackie doesn’t forget… and he certainly doesn’t forgive.

This special series, brought to you by The Darkness video game/comic scribe Paul Jenkins and The Darkness co-creator David Wohl, parallels the levels of the much anticipated video game by 2K, while bringing you original stories that show you a side of The Darkness you’ve never seen. Jenkins and Wohl are joined by Top Cow star Eric Basaldua, artist of Witchblade/Wolverine. These standalone stories can be enjoyed without the video game, but add a new level to the playing experience!
