Fans of Top Cow Comics' Witchblade can now get their fix with a brand new animated series based on the character - and until October 26, you can get the first episode downloaded for free via iTunes. Thanks to SCI FI Wire for giving fans the heads-up about how to get the episode.

The animated series is based on the Top Cow comic series, although it does not directly follow the storyline from the comics.

In the series, we travel to the future where there is a new wielder of the Witchblade. Masane Amaha, a woman on the fringe of society, bouncing rootless from town to town with no memory of the past and no clue as to what the future holds. Upon her return to Tokyo, chance and circumstance conspire to unleash the fury of the Witchblade.
