Witchblade


As I'd told you, I've been reading Witchblade. I read uptil issue 15 and then gave up. The story is insipid at best. It narrates the story of this young, female cop, who (surprise!) happens to have the body of a goddess, and who discovers a magical object of immense power called witchblade. Understandably, there are a lot of people who want to possess the witchblade so the poor girl has to one by one vanquish these enemies and also simultaneously discover the true nature of the witchblade.

The only reason why this comic must have sold is its depiction of hot females in various states of undress. It is funny how, when the witchblade manifests itself on the body of the protagonist, her clothes gradually turn to shreds, progressively revealing her very healthy thighs and breasts which are positively the epitome of mammary precision. The same happens with most of the other female characters of the comic (and there seems to be an abundance of them). Clothing obviously is the least of anyone's cares when there are such mysterious things happening all around them.

The men too, have been depicted as typical hunks. No one has less than 50 Kgs of musculature on them. And all the women seem to drool over these muscular hunks irrespective of whether they are worth it or not.

  1. Hee hee.

    Reminded me of Devi. The first thing I checked after reading your post was if Witchblade belonged to Virgin Comics. Didn't really have to. The creators of Devi could have ripped off the idea in the first place (if men still need inspiration from elsewhere to unclothe women, that is), though the concept seems to be entirely different.

    If you have them in electronic form and emailable size, could you please mail them to me? Want to have a look.

  2. @ Swetank - True. These ones are a bit big to email. (And the net connection at home is rather limited.) You can download them from torrents, though.

  3. Yeah, yeah, save your ass. And anyway, I'm not into torrents. Just too tedious, and I don't even know how to use them. I'm happy using/reading/watching pirated material if someone else does all the hard work and gives me the final thing.
