Oh yeah while we’re announcing new comics teams, Laura Braga, the very talented Italian artist, is the new artist on WITCHBLADE as of issue #170. She joins writer Ron Marz and colorist/editor Betsy Gonia on the book, meaning the book will be 2/3s people not named Ron.
You may be amazed to know WITCHBLADE—the story of cop Sara Pezzini and her magical sword (which also, to be fair, removes her clothing)—is up to issue #170. I can’t even guess how many of those issues Ron Marz has written, but it’s one of comics’ longest running continuing series by now.
Braga previously drew CYBERFORCE and many European comics after collaborating with Milo Manara early in her career. It will come as no surprise that Braga also likes drawing the lovely ladies, which makes her a natural for WITCHBLADE.
This is a page of her CYBERFORCE work.
