Comic News: Aphrodite IV Returns for More Trouble Beginning with WITCHBLADE #134

Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that Witchblade #134 will begin a three-part story arc, guest-starring Aphrodite IV, with the first in the series hitting comic book stores January 6, 2010.

From the series’ critically acclaimed team of writer Ron Marz and artist Stjepan Sejic, Witchblade #134 finds Detective Sara Pezzini, bearer of the Witchblade, back in New York City, still struggling to come to grips with her inhuman actions during “War of the Witchblades.” Introspection, however, might just get Sara killed when she finds herself in the crosshairs of the mysterious and deadly Aphrodite IV, who is on a mission to recover a valuable piece of technology for her hidden masters.

"We got a great response to Aphrodite's appearance in Witchblade #119,” said Marz. “I've been anxious to her back into the book and back into Sara's life. The storyline that ramps up starting in issue #134 will give some real juicy hints about Aphrodite IV's origins. And, of course, we'll blow up a lot of stuff."

Aphrodite IV, a modern variation of the character originally created by David Finch, previously in Witchblade #119 and The Darkness Vol. 3 #8.

The 32-page Witchblade #134 issue will ship with two covers—one by regular series’ artist Sejic and another from digital painter Michael Ivan. The issue will carry a cover price of $2.99.
