Free Comic Book Day 2010: Top Cow Productions

For their FCBD giveaway, Top Cow brings out their big guns with Artifacts #0, written by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Magdalena), and stunningly illustrated by Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade, Angelus).  If you've been wondering what's going on with Top Cow, and it has been going on for about 5 years now, Artifacts #0 will bring you up to speed with the world of Top Cow, including Witchblade, The Darkness, Angelus, and more, setting the stage for their next big movement, the 13 issue Artifacts series.

In addition, Top Cow talent have spread out all over the US, including an appearance by Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri and artist Michael Broussard at Collector's Paradise (actually my old shop…) in Los Angeles.

  1. that looks truely terrible

  2. Blegh.

  3. Maybe you should give Top Cow a try before dismissing it.  Ron Marz has been doing great work over there.  I’m currently rereading his run on Witchblade, and it’s very good. The First Born and Broken Trinity events were also pretty amazing.

  4. Ron Marz is the Geoff Johns of Top Cow.

  5. yea, I like Ron Marz, he was the main reason I was reading so many CrossGen titles.  There was a video podcast and the fellas seemed to like Top Cow.  Unless anything has changed,  (I wouldn’t know) I would assume it’s still putting out ok comics.

  6. I gotta say that I’m looking forward to this Aritifacts mini-series. I’ve been waiting for the secrets of the Top Cow universe to be revealed since their other mini-series UNIVERSE, from around 2001/2002. And Marz has been awesome on the Witchblade book so I’m confident this will be good too.
