USA Today broke the news that Hack/Slash creator, Tim Seeley has been hired to write Witchblade when Ron Marz steps aside at the end of issue #150.

“I’ve been doing the book Hack/Slash for seven years, and it being full of attractive ladies who fight monsters and magical stuff indicated that I might be able to do such a gig,” Seeley says.

According to USA Today, Seeley will swing the story away from horror/police proceedural to more of a “dark fantasy with a hint of crime noir.”

She’ll have a new hometown, a new job and a bunch of new supporting characters, Top Cow publisher Filip Sablik adds. “But one thing will remain constant: Sara Pezzini will continue to be one of the strongest female comic characters, and the Witchblade is definitely going to continue acting as a ‘weirdness magnet’ in Sara’s life.”

No word if Seeley is planning on making a go at Marz’s 80 issue run, but I’m looking forward to seeing what he will bring to the table when issue #151 arrives in October.
