This cover just went up on comics.org. "Series finale," it says. Can't say I'm surprised, now that the industry is finally starting to move away from the Boy's Club mentality it's proclaimed proudly since the late 80's. They're introducing new female superheroes who actually wear clothes, act like actual women, have a normal chest size, etc....and a growing female audience is buying them. The strategy of aiming at the lowest end of a gender-specific market by printing what is essentially soft porn is dying, and good riddance to it. This cover alone illustrates the problem: it looks like an old 90's comic. The art is ugly, sleazy and exploitative. And if you look closely, yes, there are tentacles involved. This is still a recognizable IP, which is sheer gold in this crowded market, but the bigger problem is that Witchblade's premise makes it impossible to reboot for a growing female interest in comics without radically changing the entire thing. It is about an organic superweapon that can become full-body armor, but only after it's ripped its host's clothes off. The new audience for comics would be just put off by this.
