BROKEN TRINITY DELUXE HARDCOVER

Much like 2007's First Born story arc, Broken Trinity upsets the status quo of the Top Cow Universe as one of the three principal characters in the never-ending battle between Light and Dark -- Witchblade, The Darkness and The Angelus -- dies, never to return. In addition, new characters enter the fray, setting the stage for a new ongoing series to debut later in 2009!

176 pages, $34.99.

Jackie loves little beyond himself, but when his childhood friend Jenny is threatened, his hard-edged persona is tested. He begins to understand that The Darkness has its own agenda, and although the dark power might help him, it might also consume him...
