Official Press Release
Cyberforce is returning…in full force.
The time is finally right for the first and only revamp and relaunch of the title that started the Top Cow universe. Writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Green Lantern) and artist Pat Lee (Batman, X-Men) kick off the new era in a new Cyberforce #1 in March, 2006.
Pat Lee contributes ground-up redesigns of both existing and new Cyberforce characters, while Ron Marz takes off with a new story already built on a solid plateau-Cyberforce’s origin was recently revealed by original Cyberforce creator Marc Silvestri in the Image Comics 10th Anniversary hardcover.
“When Top Cow asked me what I wanted to put on my plate in addition to Witchblade, my answer was Cyberforce. I’ve been wanting to write a team book, especially from the ground up, for a while now. Cyberforce is a perfect fit, because while we’re definitely building on the previous incarnation that was so successful in the ’90s, we’re also reinventing the book with contemporary sensibilities,” said Ron Marz. “Team books have grown quite a bit in the last decade, thanks to books such as The Ultimates and Grant Morrison’s glorious JLA run, and Cyberforce will reflect that. It’s going to be widescreen, large-scale action coupled with characters you actually give a damn about.”
“I remember picking up the original Cyberforce #1, and I grew up reading it as a fan. Redesigning the characters has been such a blast, and a professional dream come true,” said Pat Lee. “There is a ton of detail in the art, and each issue gets crazier and crazier yet. I’m incredibly pumped up about the project, and feeling the energy I get back from Ron and from Top Cow.”
Cyberforce #1 debuts at the 2006 Wizard World Los Angeles convention, where advance ticket-holders will receive a free Wizard-exclusive copy of Cyberforce #1 with Marc Silvestri cover.
Cyberforce #1 hits comic stores on March 22, with three covers by David Finch, Pat Lee, and Marc Silvestri.
