There are a couple of things I like about his opening arc, though, such as a brief interjection in the latest issue, featuring a meeting between three past bearers of the Witchblade, Darkness, and Spear of Destiny.
Sara's been investigating the murder of a local alderman, which led her into conflict with, by turns, a coven of biker witches and a gang of rejuvenated senior citizens, who all wear some kind of bizarre suit of organic armor. It's not until this issue that she gets a handle on what's happened: there's an ancient power underneath Chicago and this isn't the first time it's run into the Witchblade.
The exact date isn't established, but Escatado's dialogue suggests that the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 hasn't happened yet.
