Following on from yesterday, I bring you some more Witchblade (issues 63 and 64), feat. Magdalena. Whose name, in this incarnation (legacy heroine), is Patience.

This post also includes one of my favourite comics panels ever, drawn by Francis Manapul. WHY was he the first peciller whose name I knew? LEARN! SEE! WONDER!

Way back when I put up the last requests post (the next one is COMING SOON), I promised some of Francis Manapul's run on Witchblade to somebody. I forget who. I am sorry.

I just managed to get those scans done. The quality is weird and I don't know why. Better late and dodgy than never??

One thing I didn't notice at the time but find wanting in hindsight, is that whilst I was reading Witchblade in.. 2002-2003?.. and in the live-action television show as well, Sara doesnt really have that much in the way of female support characters. Her flake sister shows up sometimes, and there was that daughter of her dead best friend, and every now and then Lara Croft would drop by.. but the day to day, comic to comic stuff was pretty dudefilled.

So it was always nice when another lady did come and visit - such as here. I picked these scans in particular because it's also always neat to see some evidence of in-world "rules" when you're dealing with supernatural jiggery pokery.

I'm not that fond of the way Top Cow chose to advertise it, but maybe you are.

This week, I have been mostly reading The Magdalena.

I had a flick through vol.1, but it was too dark and the art too cheesecakey and Top Cow-y (I know, there's a shock.) Why would the Catholic Church's black ops warrior wear a belly shirt and a pair of briefs as well as her armour and cowl? It's not like the Catholic church is a massive fan of people in their orders flaunting their flesh.

The third volume was much better, with much clearer art and a decent (but not great) story. I just need to read #8 of it and then have a look at the Phil Hester drawn Magdalena vs. Daredevil.

For those of you who don't know, this is what the Magdalena is )
