Vault Comics’ Witchblood, the story of Yonna, a young witch cruising the southwest US on her motorcycle, accelerates with issue 2.

The town of Carlos is burning, and Yonna has been injured. Meanwhile, Paxton LaBelle and the Hounds of Love are in ‘dance and destroy’ mode, looking to make bad things worse!!

Created by Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle, Witchblood is coloured by Gab Contreras and lettered by Jim Campbell.

It’s a cross country horror show, with loads of drama. Yonna certainly helps in the ‘drama department’, always stirring up magic emotions around her. The artwork is well defined, big shapes with clearly delineated areas. It’s not confusing to understand. Loads of colour contrast, fully realized palettes. This is a colourful horror book, with exaggerated characters and buckets of slapstick/big gesture scenes. It’s big, in that sense. It is NOT a dark, super-creepy torture type of book.

Well realized, and an interesting road trip with great potential.

Vault Comics, Witchblood 2, $3.99 for 24 pages of content.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
