Newsarama: Okay, Caitlin, Roberta, Alex Underwood hasn't had the Witchblade for that long but she's getting the idea of what's going on. Where is she by the end of Witchblade #6, which wrapped up your first arc?>Caitlin Kittredge: This particular issue is the culmination of everything that's happened since Alex became the Witchblade - she faces off against the body-jumping demon she's been chasing, she learns some unpleasant truths about her friends and her foes, and we get a bigger slice of her past and the tragedy and survival instinct that shaped her into the Witchblade's perfect host. And there's a full-blown, no holds barred demon vs. Witchblade brawl, which is always fun.
Roberta Ingranata: For Alex, the Witchblade was a tortuous road to go. For us, readers and fans, who knew already the Witchblade’s powers, was unusual that Alex not to be using them immediately in issue one. For Alex, the Witchblade has been a personal challenge, a mysterious discovery that has a long way to go, crowded with lots of demons...inner and supernatural.
The new arc will be more focused on Alex, she will expanding her knowledge of the Artifacts. We’ll see the armor more often, and she will fight with new enemies. Johnny, Alex’s first love, will play a fundamental role throughout role in the next issues, so we will see Alex fight even emotionally.
