Witchblade, Vol. 1 In Stores This July


Witchblade, Vol. 1 In Stores This July
A CONTEMPORARY SPIN ON A CLASSIC COMIC—WITCHBLADE, VOL. 1 TRADE PAPERBACK WILL HIT STORES THIS JULY

The new story is packed with Buffy-esque action and Jessica 
Jones-like character drama

PORTLAND, OR, 06/05/2018 — Writer Caitlin Kittredge (THROWAWAYS, Coffin Hill) and artist Roberta Ingranata put a contemporary spin on the classic WITCHBLADE—first co-created by Image Comics co-founder and partner, Marc Silvestri, with Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, and David Wohl—WITCHBLADE, VOL. 1 trade paperback will collect issues #1-6. It will hit stores this July.

Gunned down and left for dead on a New York rooftop, Alex Underwood's life should have ended there—but instead, at the moment of death, she became host to The Witchblade, a mystical artifact that grants the woman wielding it extraordinary powers. But those powers come with a heavy cost, and Alex soon finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC.

WITCHBLADE, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0685-1, Diamond Code MAY180096) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, July 11th and bookstores on Tuesday, July 17th. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Select praise for the new WITCHBLADE:

“I dug the hell out of this first issue and am excited to see where this series goes. I
guess I’m a Witchblade fan now.” —Nerdist

“The work that Kittredge and Ingranata have put into this issue is more than obvious
and may end up being more memorable than the original’s legacy. They have captured
and injected a world of emotion into these pages bringing this property out of the 90s
and into the modern times.” —Comicosity

“Sharp, powerful and cutting urban fantasy...What Ingranata and Valenza are creating is
a fusion of minimal indie comics-style art and high energy urban action comic book
storytelling.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots

Witchblade is back in action but with a modern day Image Comics glow!” —Snap
Pow

"There’s enough of the original mythos present that longtime readers can find their way
around, but this new beginning is also accessible enough that brand new readers...this
is exactly what the series needed to move forward.” —ComicCon.com

“It does an excellent job creating a story that is intriguing and allows readers to ease
into the legend of the Witchblade... the future is bright for the franchise.” —Rogues
Portal

“Every panel has a sense of urgency to its composition and the splash of bright colors
is restrained until a bloody explosion is shown with a vibrancy for emphasis. It's a very
post-Jessica Jones comic, but the juxtaposition of the trauma-centric themes with the
urban fantasy setting make this a comic with a lot of potential.” —Newsarama

“Ingranata and Valenza’s art is stellar. They’ve set this story in a very realistic New York
City, that’s also the setting of a horror movie. The deep shadows, the strange angles,
all contribute to a story that’s more ghost story than the supernatural superhero of the
previous volume of Witchblade.” —ComicBuzz

Witchblade Finds a New Host And a New Audience


Witchblade Finds a New Host And a New Audience
WITCHBLADE FINDS A NEW HOST
AND A NEW AUDIENCE

The refresh on the classic comic is packed with action and contemporary drama and hits the mark with readers

PORTLAND, OR, 12/12/2017 — Fans fell in love with Alex Underwood—writer Caitlin Kittredge (THROWAWAYS, Coffin Hill) and artist Roberta Ingranata’s newest WITCHBLADE host—in WITCHBLADE #1's fresh spin on the classic comic series. WITCHBLADE was first co-created by Image Comics co-founder and partner, Marc Silvestri, with Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, and David Wohl, and launched as an all-new series last week to overwhelming critical acclaim. It will be fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with increasing customer demand.

“Issue #1 has sold out! Wow, thank you to all the fans for supporting this bold new chapter in the Witchblade saga! And thank you Caitlin Kittredge, Roberta Ingranata and Bryan Valenza for your creative vision,” said Silvestri. “It takes a truly talented team to make a book this good!”

A journalist who thinks she’s seen it all… Underwood is a contemporary character with an already storied past—and an unlikely recipient of the ancient and powerful artifact known as the Witchblade—who immediately captured the imaginations of fans.

This new WITCHBLADE #1 drops readers into the action from page one. Gunned down and left for dead on a New York rooftop, Alex Underwood's life should have ended there—but instead, at the moment of death, she became host to the Witchblade, a mystical artifact that grants the woman wielding it extraordinary powers. But the power comes with a heavy cost, and Alex finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC. Demons are real and walking among humans, and every one of them is intent on taking out the Witchblade's newest host before she becomes too strong to kill. But the artifact chose Alex for a reason—and she's not going down without a fight.

WITCHBLADE #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

WITCHBLADE #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code NOV178001) and WITCHBLADE #2 (Diamond Code NOV170871) will be available on Wednesday, January 10th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 18th.

Caitlin Kittredge and Roberta Ingranata Take on Witchblade

Caitlin Kittredge and Roberta Ingranata Take on Witchblade
KITTREDGE & INGRANATA TAKE ON THE WITCHBLADE

PORTLAND, OR, 09/18/2017 — All-female creative team—writer Caitlin Kittredge (THROWAWAYS, Coffin Hill) and artist Roberta Ingranata—join forces for an all-new story about one Alex Underwood, a journalist who thinks she’s seen it all… until she becomes the unlikely host to an ancient and powerful artifact known as the WITCHBLADE. The ongoing series—first co-created by Image Comics co-founder and partner, Marc Silvestri, with Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, and David Wohl—is set to launch this December.

“Everywhere you look in the real world, you’ll see a hero. Not the kind that wears a cape and flies around a comic page or across the big screen but the kind you see walking around being kind of unremarkable. Basically people. People that, when given the choice, will simply do the right thing. Because that’s what a hero does,” said Silvestri. “Doing the right thing isn’t always easy, as it often means being selfless. Without hesitation. But again, that’s what a hero does. Our most enduring superheroes come from this simple idea: people choosing to do the right thing. People like the wielders of the Witchblade.”

WITCHBLADE #1 drops readers into the action from page one. Gunned down and left for dead on a New York rooftop, Alex Underwood's life should have ended there—but instead, at the moment of death, she became host to the Witchblade, a mystical artifact that grants the woman wielding it extraordinary powers. But the power comes with a heavy cost, and Alex finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC. Demons are real and walking among humans, and every one of them is intent on taking out the Witchblade's newest host before she becomes too strong to kill. But the artifact chose Alex for a reason, and she's not going down without a fight.

“The idea of people choosing to be selfless was always at the forefront when Brian Haberlin, Michael Turner, David Wohl, and myself went about the business of creating Witchblade 20 some years ago. Now a talented new team has grabbed the creative reins and, quite frankly, they’ve knocked the new Witchblade out of the park! Writer Caitlin Kittredge, artist Roberta Ingranata, and colorist Bryan Valenza have taken Witchblade in a bold new direction that is completely fresh and exciting,” added Silvestri. “So do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Witchblade where you can follow the adventures of a person granted great power and choosing to do the right thing with it. You know, a hero.”

WITCHBLADE #1 (Diamond Code OCT170557) hits stores on Wednesday, December 6th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, November 13th.

Spotlight on Grim Tidings by Caitlin Kittredge


Grim Tidings, the 2nd novel in the Hellhound Chronicles by Caitlin Kittredge, is published today by Harper Voyager. Check out this series!



Grim Tidings
Hellhound Chronicles 2
Harper Voyager, April 19, 2016
Trade Paperback and eBook, 272 pages

Spotlight on Grim Tidings by Caitlin Kittredge
In this thrilling sequel to Black Dog—the first volume of award-winning Caitlin Kittredge’s dark urban fantasy series, Hellhound Chronicles—a soul catcher must stop demonic monsters from her past from infecting the world.

After winning her freedom from a reaper and facing off against a fearsome demon boss, Ava is now a masterless hellhound. Her friend, Leo, has found a new life after death: He’s returned as the Grim Reaper—the first in centuries. As both try to adjust to their new circumstances, Ava’s dark past comes back to wreak havoc on her . . . and the entire world.

A breed of monsters as smart as vampires—but who behave like zombies—has been sighted in Kansas. Ava can’t believe these “zompires” are back. She thought she’d kicked their asses for good when she first battled them in a Nazi death camp. Now, they’re spreading their infection across America’s heartland thanks to a nasty piece of business named Cain.

Free at last after being locked up in Hell for millennia, Cain has some scores to settle. To stop him, Ava must form an unholy alliance with some old foes . . . a bargain that will lead her to uncover deeply buried truths about her past—and Leo’s future.

Black Dog
Hellhound Chronicles 1
Harper Voyager, October 28, 2014
Trade Paperback and eBook, 368 pages

Spotlight on Grim Tidings by Caitlin Kittredge
The first installment in a fabulous dark urban fantasy series—think Kill Bill with demons and gangsters instead of martial arts—from the award-winning author of the Iron Codex trilogy and Vertigo comic Coffin Hill.

Ava has spent the last hundred years as a hellhound, the indentured servant of a reaper who hunts errant souls and sends them to Hell. When a human necromancer convinces her to steal her reaper’s scythe, Ava incurs the wrath of the demon Lilith, her reaper’s boss.

As punishment for her transgression, Lilith orders Ava to track down the last soul in her reaper’s ledger . . . or die trying.

But after a hundred years of servitude, it’s time for payback. And Hell hath no fury like an avenging Ava. . . .

Interview with Caitlin Kittredge and Giveaway - August 29, 2011

Please welcome to Caitlin Kittredge to The Qwillery.  Devil's Business (Black London 4) is out tomorrow.

TQ:  What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

Caitlin:  I need background noise. TV, music--something. If it's dead silent I get bored and unfocused very quickly.

TQ:  Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Caitlin:  Definitely a plotter. I need to know what happens next or I tend to wander off and get stuck on the draft I'm writing, which is never fun.

TQ:  What inspired you to write the Black London series?

Caitlin:  I wanted to write a series that wasn't set in the US, and it sort of grew from there.

TQ:  Describe Devil's Business in 140 characters or less.

CaitlinDevil's Business sees Jack and Pete trying to stop a demon with a penchant for ritual murder, and his eye on Armageddon.

TQ:  Why did you set Devil's Business in Los Angeles?

Caitlin:  I wanted to move my characters out of their comfort zone, and LA is so weird and amazing in its own right. It's tailor-made for setting a novel about trying to cause the apocalypse.

TQ:  In Devil's Business, who was the most difficult character to write and why? The easiest and why?

Caitlin:  The most difficult was the bad guy (who I can't give details about for spoiler reasons.) He's ancient evil--the primal sort of evil--but I didn't want him to be a cartoon character, because that's no fun. I wanted to give him layers and humanity, so it was hard to distill this primal force into a human looking and sounding character. The easiest was Belial, my favorite demon. He always gets the good lines.

TQ:  Who should play Pete Caldecott and Jack Winter if the books become movies?

Caitlin:  I don't know--I like David Tennant for Jack, especially after seeing him in the Fright Night remake. For Pete, I'm open to suggestions!

TQ:  Without giving anything away, what is/are your favorite scene(s) in Devil's Business?

Caitlin:  Definitely the first time Jack and the ancient evil come face to face, in the guy's creepy little lair that he's made for himself. I had a lot of fun writing it--I like atmospheric scenes.

TQ:  How many books are planned for the Black London series?

Caitlin:  At least two more! Soul Trade, the next, will be out in early 2012.

TQ:  What's next?

Caitlin:  Next, obviously, is Devil's Business. And my second YA novel, The Nightmare Garden, will be out on Valentine's Day, 2012. I'm incredibly excited about that one.

TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery

Caitlin:  Thanks for having me!


About the Black London Series

Devil's Business
Black London 4
(St. Martin's, August 30, 2011)
Interview with Caitlin Kittredge and Giveaway - August 29, 2011
Pete Caldecott did everything she could to save Jack from Hell, even reigning in the dark machinations of the Morrigan to help bring him home. Still, Black London has not welcomed Jack back with open arms. . . So when a friend in Los Angeles asks for help tracking a sorcerous serial killer, Pete and Jack decide a change of scenery couldn’t hurt. . .

But the shadow side of the City of Angels turns out to be more treacherous than they ever imagined. Together, Pete and Jack must navigate a landscape teeming with hostile magic-users— and fight an unknown enemy. When their investigation leads to a confrontation with the demon Belial, Jack learns that he wasn't the only thing to escape from Hell. Now it’s up to him and Pete to track and eliminate an evil older than the Black itself—before it turns L.A. into Hell on Earth. And destroys life as they know it back at home…

Bone Gods
Black London 3
(St. Martin's, November 30, 2010)
Interview with Caitlin Kittredge and Giveaway - August 29, 2011
Witch hunts are on the rise and supernatural turf wars are reaching a boiling point. Then, just when it seems life couldn’t get any worse for Pete, Jack reappears—but he’s no longer the man she’s always known. Hell has changed him forever. And he’s brought back with him a whole world of trouble…

A cabal of necromancers are using ancient, unspeakable magic to turn the tide of war in their favor. Then, as the city is about to sink into chaos, Pete receives a chilling directive: To end the war, you must kill the crow-mage. Beset from all sides, Pete finds herself turning to an unholy source for help…even if doing so could destroy Black London—and life as she knew it—once and for all.

Demon Bound
Black London 2
(St. Martin's, December 1, 2009)
Interview with Caitlin Kittredge and Giveaway - August 29, 2011
Thirteen years ago, Jack Winter lay dying in a graveyard. Jack called upon a demon and traded his soul for his life… and now the demon is back to collect its due. But Jack has finally found something to live for. Her name is Pete Caldecott, and because of her, Jack's not going to Hell without a fight.

Pete doesn't know about Jack's bargain, but she does know that something bigger and far more dangerous than Jack's demon is growing in the Black. Old gods are stirring and spirits are rising--and Jack doesn't stand a chance of stopping them without Pete's help.

Street Magic
Black London 1
(St. Martin's, June 2, 2009)
Interview with Caitlin Kittredge and Giveaway - August 29, 2011
Her name is Pete Caldecott. She was just sixteen when she met Jack Winter, a gorgeous, larger-than-life mage who thrilled her with his witchcraft. Then a spirit Jack summoned killed him before Pete’s eyes—or so she thought. Now a detective [MSOffice2] , Pete is investigating the case of a young girl kidnapped from the streets of London. A tipster’s chilling prediction has led police directly to the child…but when Pete meets the informant, she’s shocked to learn he is none other than Jack. Strung out on heroin, Jack a shadow of his former self. But he’s able to tell Pete exactly where Bridget’s kidnappers are hiding: in the supernatural shadow-world of the fey. Even though she’s spent years disavowing the supernatural, Pete follows Jack into the invisible fey underworld, where she hopes to discover the truth about what happened to Bridget—and what happened to Jack on that dark day so long ago…

Then a spirit Jack summoned killed him before Pete’s eyes—or so she thought. Now a detective [MSOffice2] , Pete is investigating the case of a young girl kidnapped from the streets of London. A tipster’s chilling prediction has led police directly to the child…but when Pete meets the informant, she’s shocked to learn he is none other than Jack. Strung out on heroin, Jack a shadow of his former self.  But he’s able to tell Pete exactly where Bridget’s kidnappers are hiding: in the supernatural shadow-world of the fey.  Even though she’s spent years disavowing the supernatural, Pete follows Jack into the invisible fey underworld, where she hopes to discover the truth about what happened to Bridget—and what happened to Jack on that dark day so long ago…

Thirteen years ago, Jack Winter lay dying in a graveyard. Jack called upon a demon and traded his soul for his life… and now the demon is back to collect its due. But Jack has finally found something to live for. Her name is Pete Caldecott, and because of her, Jack's not going to Hell without a fight.

Pete doesn't know about Jack's bargain, but she does know that something bigger and far more dangerous than Jack's demon is growing in the Black. Old gods are stirring and spirits are rising--and Jack doesn't stand a chance of stopping them without Pete's help.

Witch hunts are on the rise and supernatural turf wars are reaching a boiling point. Then, just when it seems life couldn’t get any worse for Pete, Jack reappears—but he’s no longer the man she’s always known. Hell has changed him forever. And he’s brought back with him a whole world of trouble…

A cabal of necromancers are using ancient, unspeakable magic to turn the tide of war in their favor. Then, as the city is about to sink into chaos, Pete receives a chilling directive: To end the war, you must kill the crow-mage. Beset from all sides, Pete finds herself turning to an unholy source for help…even if doing so could destroy Black London—and life as she knew it—once and for all.
