Top Cow has announced Aphrodite IV (not to be confused with Aphrodite IX) is returning to the pages of Witchblade in issue #134.
Witchblade #134 finds Detective Sara Pezzini, bearer of the Witchblade, back in New York City, still struggling to come to grips with her inhuman actions during â€œWar of the Witchblades.â€Â Introspection, however, might just get Sara killed when she finds herself in the crosshairs of the mysterious and deadly Aphrodite IV, who is on a mission to recover a valuable piece of technology for her hidden masters.
“We got a great response to Aphrodite’s appearance in Witchblade #119,â€ said writer Ron Marz in a prepared statement.Â â€œI’ve been anxious to her back into the book and back into Sara’s life. The storyline that ramps up starting in issue #134 will give some real juicy hints about Aphrodite IV’s origins. And, of course, we’ll blow up a lot of stuff.”
Witchblade #134 arrives January 6, 2010.
