Top Cow announced that Witchblade #130 will feature the concluding chapter of the War of the Witchblades saga, where someone emerges as the lone Witchblade.
In a prepared statement, writer Ron Marz said, â€œThe book has very much been a two-character drama since we introduced Dani. We might not have had both characters in every issue, but both characters were definitely a presence in the book. At the end of this storyline, we’ll be back to focusing on one character and that character’s life.â€
â€œThere are a lot of different plot threads going on in this arc â€“ Sara, Dani, Sara’s sister Julie, Dani’s friend Finch, the Angelus. And while they might seem like disparate threads now, they’ll all tie together.â€
â€œI will say this: when I kill somebody in one of my books, they stay killed if I have anything to say about it. Death shouldn’t be a revolving door, because it saps the drama out of a story. Sara’s first partner, Jake, took a dirt nap, and it’s gonna stay that way. If somebody is really dead, they’re dead.â€
â€œSomebody ends up with the Witchblade, somebody ends up as the Angelus. But I’m not telling who. That’s why we solicited three different possible versions of the Sejic cover to #130. Obviously we’re only going to press with one of them â€“ but the question is, which one?â€
The issue ships with three covers and arrives September 9, 2009 and features a $2.99 cover price.
