Top Cow and ComicsPRO Celebrate "Artifacts"

Official Press Release

Top Cow Productions and ComicsPRO are teaming up to celebrate the end of the entire Top Cow Universe as we know it with a nationwide event! Many of Top Cow's best creators and some of North America's finest comic retailers will be bringing in the new year and new universe in style. In addition to hosting a variety of signings, all ComicsPRO member retailers will also have access to two limited edition variant covers for ARTIFACTS #13 and WITCHBLADE #151 to commemorate the event!

ARTIFACTS #13 concludes the Top Cow Universe's biggest event to date with sweeping changes to the status quo of some of Top Cow's biggest franchises including THE DARKNESS and WITCHBLADE. Written by Top Cow architect Ron Marz with art by legendary artist Dale Keown, ARTIFACTS #13 arrives in stores on January 4th, 2012, kicking off the new year in a big way! The very same week, fans will be introduced to the new direction and creative team in WITCHBLADE #151 by Tim Seeley and Diego Bernard.

"This is truly the most ambitious change to the Top Cow Universe we've ever attempted," commented Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik, "And a great opportunity for new readers to try out these titles. We've had a long, successful relationship with ComicsPRO and wanted to involve their forward-thinking retailers in some way. This nationwide event will allow us to interact with the biggest group of fans and we want to be there first hand to see their reactions!"
