Following issue #127, things didn’t look too good for Sara Pezzini, and the variant cover to Witchblade #128 might unsettle long term fans.

In this issue of “War of the Witchblades,” both Sara Pezzini and Dani Baptiste are on the ground and it’s uncertain who will rise to reunite and claim the divided Witchblade for herself.  The epic storyline continues to raise the stakes in the battle for the ancient artifact called the Witchblade and promises to dramatically change the landscape of the series by its conclusion.

The regular cover is a take on John Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men #136 by series artist Stjepan Sejic, with the Crisis on Infinite Earths homage cover by Luke Ross.

“Obviously things don’t look too promising … for Sara or anyone else … by the end of Witchblade #127,” explained writer Ron Marz in a prepared statement, “The Luke Ross cover for issue #128 definitely takes that in account, and gives us a chance to homage two of the great covers in the history of comics in John Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men #136 shot, as well as the George Perez Crisis #7 image. If there was ever a time for this kind of cover on Witchblade, it’s now.”

Witchblade #128 is scheduled to be in stores on July 8, 2009.

    So how is the regular cover a take on Uncanny X-Men #136? That X-Men cover is the same as the Crisis of Infinite Earths cover.

      The variant cover is a take on the Crisis cover, the regular cover is the homage to the X-Men Bryne cover.

    the variant cover is a take on x-men because that issue came first… therefore the crisis cover is also a take on the x-men cover.
