Witchblade Variant Covers Revealed


LOS ANGELES 06/07/2024 — New York Times bestselling writer Marguerite Bennett (Animosity, Batwoman, DC Bombshells) and artist Giuseppe Cafaro (Suicide Squad, Power Rangers, Red Sonja)’s upcoming Witchblade #1 launch will feature two eye-popping, extremely limited variant covers, a 1:50 copy incentive variant by J. Scott Campbell and a 1:100 copy incentive variant by Bill Sienkiewicz.

Campbell’s and Sienkiewicz’s signature styles will join the lineup of exciting cover artists—Giuseppe Cafaro, DANI, Brad Simpson, and Marc Silvestri—contributing variants to this momentous Witchblade milestone and will help kick off this new reimagining hitting comic book stores in July.


“We can’t wait for Witchblade fans to fall in love with Sara Pezzini all over again and for new readers to experience the energy of the ’90s with this new origin story!” said Silvestri, one of the original Witchblade’s co-creators, the CEO of Top Cow Productions, and one of the original founders of Image Comics.


In Witchblade #1, New York City Police Detective Sara Pezzini’s life was forever fractured by her father’s murder. Cold, cunning, and hellbent on revenge, Sara now stalks a vicious criminal cabal beneath the city, where an ancient power collides and transforms her into something wild, magnificent, and beyond her darkest imaginings.

Campbell and Sienkiewicz’s covers embody Bennett’s and Cafaro’s sleek, vicious, ferocious, and powerful new Witchblade—and prompt curiosity as to how Sara will use this ancient power—and whether she will be consumed by it.
