Top cow has sent us another sneak peek of Witchblade Manga #1. This time you get to check out the five pages in glorious color, and it does look amazing.

Witchblade Manga #1
(W) Sumita Kazasa
(A) Kobayashi Yasuko
(C) Yasuko, Christian Gossett, & Gonzo

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, Yasuko Kobayashi , 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!
