I will admit to trying to sneak glances at Witchblade comics when I was younger. I suppose I should also admit to hanging out in comic book stores. Mostly just for the X-Men, though. I was terrified of even the idea of trying to purchase a comic like Witchblade. Scared of what the guy at the counter would think. How I would sneak it into the house. What I would say if my parents did eventually find it. And that was before I even heard there was some psychosexual interactive between the Witchblade and the person using it. [I think that’s right, but maybe I’m thinking of some other fictitious comic weapon]
I’m not positive that it’s as sure a sign of the apocalypse as, say, a remake of Robocop and a movie version of 21 Jumpstreet, but Witchblade is coming in 2009. And judging by the poster, I will probably revert to my 10-year-old self and not be able to fight through the shame to actually buy a ticket.
