We had the 2nd Archives volume printed early, so I've had my copy for a month or so now (and so have some lucky attendees of the Emerald City Comicon), and I can't tell you how cool it is to look at both volumes sitting on my shelf. The idea that I (along with an extraordinarily talented group of collaborators) put out this huge body of work is pretty wild.

Witchblade Annual 2009

Story by Jay Faerber, Joshua Cozine, Joe Henderson, Art by Eric Basaldua & Sheldon Mitchell, Covers by Eric Basaldua & Sami Basri

Presenting the first ever Witchblade Annual issue, complete with a new, original self-contained story by writer Jay Faerber and artist Eric Basaluda. Includes a second bonus story! Beautiful women all over the city are killing men they don't even know, and then claiming they don't even remember the events. When Sara and partner Gleason are assigned to investigate the case, they're thrown head-first into the dangerous and deadly world of... plastic surgery?

Plus an additional story featuring Ian Nottingham by newcomers Joshua Cozine & Joe Henderson, and artist Sheldon Mitchell (Freshmen Summer Special).

My story in the Witchblade Annual turned out much better than I could've hoped, and I owe it all to Eric Basaldua. That guy can draw! You can read the first few pages of our story right here.
