A while ago, Mark Millar and Jae Lee teamed up on a series called Witchblade: Demon, about a serial killer who believed himself to have a demonic nature. Now, Top Cow is teaming up with Dynamite and their Lone Ranger writer Ande Parks will be giving us a sequel to that series called Witchblade: Demon Reborn, featuring art from Jose Luis and covers by Dennis Calero and Lee himself. In the new story, The Demon returns from Hell to try to drag Sara Pezzini back down there with him.
Here's what Parks said about the miniseries:
The Witchblade has sent a lot of bad people to hell over the centuries. WITCHBLADE: DEMON REBORN gives us a chance to see what happens when one of them comes back. Mark Millar and Jae Lee created a character they called The Demon several years ago, in a Witchblade/Demon crossover one shot. Since then, Demon has discovered, at the hands of a genuine demon in the pits of hell, just how petty and insignificant he really was on earth. As Sara Pezzini has been getting on with her life, Demon has been going through some very unique and specialized tortures in hell. He's also been collecting a lot of hatred and resentment toward the woman that sent him there. Our series sends Demon back to earth for a short time in an effort to exact his revenge against Sara and the Witchblade. More important than the Demon's schemes, though, is how they reveal Sara's ongoing struggle to keep the Witchblade and her life under control. Hosting the Witchblade allows Sara to help rid the earth of some people we're all better off without, but it's also a burden. WTICHBLADE: DEMON REBORN looks at that burden very closely, examining the toll living with the Witchblade exacts on Sara and the people she loves. So, we've got all kinds of bloody, hellfire action, along with a penetrating look at what it's like to be the Witchblade's host. It's a dark story that has been really fun to work on. I think readers who dig Witchblade, demons, or just police procedurals are going to really dig it.
