The Event FIVE Years in the Making!
Thirteen mystical Artifacts, including the Witchblade, the Darkness and others, guide the fate of the Top Cow Universe. For centuries, it’s been whispered that bringing together all 13 Artifacts would herald mankind’s destruction. But a mysterious figure has been manipulating events, laying plans to put Armageddon into motion. The final phase begins here, with the abduction of Hope, the daughter of Sara Pezzini and Jackie Estacado. What ensues will remake the entirety of the Top Cow Universe, from the Witchblade and the Darkness, to the Angelus, Magdalena, and countless others. Artifacts #1 is the perfect place for faithful readers to see their loyalty pay off, and for new readers to experience the Top Cow Universe.

    I thought it was a weird move for Detective Pezzini to say this upon encountering her perp, “I’m identifying myself as Detective Pezzini of the NYPD.” That seems a little redundant, it’s almost like she’d say something like that to a rookie before busting in on a drug deal. Shouldn’t it have been alright to just say, “I’m Detective Pezzini of the NYPD”?
