Any readers of Witchblade? I recently bought the Witchblade: Compendium Volume 1. I'm really enjoying the comic, but I just figured that I don't like reading from a very heavy book. The spine is completely bent.

The compendium ends at issue #50. Rather than buy another cumbersome Compendium Volume 2, does anyone know the trade paperback titles or the story arc that contains issues #51-79? I'm sticking to TPB from now on.

Sorry I can't help you out on this one. Hopefully someone else can. All I know is there are SO many different TPB lines for Witchblade (and Darkness) that they can be extremely confusing to figure out.

Did some research and unfortunately I think you are gonna have to get compendium vol 2. It appears that a trade paperback was never released or is no longer available for issues #40-#79. Individual trades are available starting again with issue #80 when Ron Martz took over as writer for the series.

Yeah, seems like Compendium is the only way to get #51-53 and #59-79.

Between Vol 3 and Vol 10, there are collections of mini-series making up Volumes 5 & 6. Blood Relations (below) is Vol 7 and there may never have been an actual Vol 8 or 9.

#1-8: Witchblade Origins Vol 1
#9-17: Witchblade Origins Vol 2, Witchblade: Revelations
#18-25: Witchblade Origins Vol 3, Witchblade/Darkness: Family Ties (#18-19), Witchblade: Prevailing (#20-25)

#54-58: Witchblade Blood Relations

#80-85: Witchblade Vol 10: Witch Hunt, Witchblade (2008) Vol 1
#86-92: Witchblade Vol 11: Awakenings, Witchblade (2008) Vol 2
#93-100: Witchblade (2008) Vol 3
#101-109: Witchblade (2008) Vol 4
#110-115 & First Born #1-3: Witchblade (2008) Vol 5
#116-120: Witchblade (2008) Vol 6
#121-124 & Annual #1: Witchblade (2008) Vol 7
#125-130: Witchblade (2008) Vol 8
#131-135: Witchblade: Redemption Vol 1
#136-139: Witchblade: Redemption Vol 2
#140-144: Witchblade: Redemption Vol 3
#145-150: Witchblade: Redemption Vol 4

If I skip the Compendium Vol. 2 and just go straight to the Ron Marz stories (starting at #80) I'm not going to be missing any major plot line, will I?

And thanks for all the replies and help.
