The premise of Demon Reborn is a very interesting one. A serial killer who dubbed himself a demon in the Millar story met an early, and very just, end at the hands of Detective Pezzini as she hurled him off of a the roof a building to the street below. In this first issue of the four-part sequel, we learn that the “demon” ultimately ended up in hell. While dealing with what would be eternal torture and damnation in his new home, the “demon” is visited by the powers that be. He is given a chance to prove his passion for unbridled evil by returning to earth and exacting revenge on the woman who brought him to justice.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t left wanting more from this issue, but what was there was good enough to overcome that. With so much history with the series/character, it seemed to me that the creative team had less pressure to go all out with issue one and could just start at the point that most series can’t get to until about issue 3, which is just setting the stage at a more natural pace. Either way though, it was a very good comic. The writing flowed naturally and the art was just top notch. This might be getting too specific, but I especially loved the “pencilly” feel of the shadowing.
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): If you’re already a Witchblade fan, I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you to check this comic out. If you’re late to the whole Witchblade craze and don’t know where to start, this series isn’t a bad jumping in point. It’s a self contained story that won’t be too hindered if you lack knowledge of the rest of the series.
