Top Cow Entertainment has announced Witchblade #116 has sold out and is going back to press. It’s been a while since the title has sold out, and it looks like the creative team of Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic are the reason.

“We knew that the re-pairing of the First Born team of Marz and Sejic was going to make people stand up and take notice, but we were incredibly elated to see how quickly retailers and fans supported this new era of Witchblade,” added Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik. “Even with a healthy overprint, issue #116 was an almost instant sell-out and we’re rushing back to do a second printing with a rare penciled image from Stjepan to fill demand.”

And what an image it is. You can see the full thing after the jump.

“It’s great that there’s been enough demand to go back for a second printing,” remarked Ron Marz. “I think there’s still a segment of the audience that has a preconceived notion of what Witchblade is, so we want to get the book into the hands of as many of those people as possible and let them see what the book really is. Stjepan and I are happy with what we did in #116, but we’re just getting warmed up.”


Witchblade #116 – the second printing will arrive in stores April 30, 2008, and if you are looking to pick up issue #117 at the same time, be aware that it arrives a week earlier on April 23, 2008.
