At the start of First Born #1, Pezzini is on leave from the NYPD and no longer in possession of the mystical Witchblade. Unknown to her, epic events are unfolding around her. Agents of the Angelus are seeking a new host, but first they want mob boss and bearer of The Darkness, Jackie Estacado out of the way… permanently. The cold war between the forces of Light and Dark is heating up and Sara will be caught in the middle. Plus the stunning circumstances surrounding Sara’s mysterious conception will be unveiled!
