Witchblade: Demon Reborn by José Luís, Ande Parks
Date Read: April 2015
Genre: Graphic Novel
A year ago in the life of Sara Pezzini, the New York Detective found herself on a rooftop, facing a demon born on earth... a cold-blooded machine that generates nothing but suffering. The Demon met his match in Sara. He didn't know that she played host to the Witchblade. He paid for his ignorance with his life, and Sara was left wondering exactly what kind of menace she had just encountered. That story was told by Mark Millar and Jae Lee several years ago. In 2012, Dynamite gave Ande Parks the opportunity to continue the story, and delve into both characters, especially the Demon. Witchblade: Demon Reborn follows the demon character to hell, where he encounters a Demoness who has been assigned to his case. She offers him a chance to revisit earth, an opportunity to get even with the woman who sent him to hell, and something he's never known before - hope. Meanwhile, Sara Pezzini is doing her best to juggle her career, her roles as a wife, a mother, and as the host of the Witchblade. Combined with a stressful trial of a vile criminal Sara arrested, she is near her breaking point. Now, the Demon will arrive and try to push Sara over the edge! Collecting the 4-issue mini-series, plus the original Witchblade Demon #1 by Mark Millar and Jae Lee, along with a complete cover gallery.

JUST A NOTE: These are books that I have Snagged @ The Library . Some of the reviews will be long and others will just be quick thoughts on the story.
Read for Fun (Library)
Overall Rating: DNF
Quick DNF Thoughts: I was a huge fan of the TV Show Witchblade so I was perhaps a little too excited about seeing Witchblade: Demon Reborn by Jose Luis on my library’s shelf. The thing was it just fell flat for me. It didn’t have my favorite elements and also had too much drama. The story didn’t work.
Graphic Thoughts: I am not a graphic novel reader in general but I loved the artwork in this. I thought it was exceptional!
