Official Press Release
Fresh faces, new concepts, and a renewed passion by the core creators have
energized Top Cow with a solid start to the new year. New creative teams
prepare to rock the status quo on both Witchblade and Tomb Raider, Fathom
resumes its publishing schedule, the Darkness gets a new look, Inferno
continues its heat and many exciting new characters and concepts loom on the
Witchblade: Original Witchblade writer and co-creator David Wohl takes over
writing Top Cow’s premiere heroine with issue #54. One of the most exciting
new talent finds of last year, Francis Manipul, will be penciling the book.
Tomb Raider: Hot off his introduction as the writer for Marvel’s Captain
America, John Ney Reiber writes the ongoing Tomb Raider title starting with
issue #21. Former Witchblade and Star Wars penciler Randy Green joins John
as they take control of Lara’s destiny.
Darkness: Marvel’s Origin writer Paul Jenkins takes a crack at the Darkness
with legendary Hulk and Pitt artist Dale Keown. Having killed Jackie
Estacado in the landmark 40th issue of Darkness, this creative team reunites
to tell the further tales of the Darkness.
Inferno: Top Cow owner/founder Marc Silvestri continues to pencil Inferno
with artist Clarence Lansang doing a planned single fill in with issue four.
Held up originally by trademark issues that delayed the first issue’s
release and prevented Silvestri from commencing the second until just
recently, the title is back on track in terms of scheduling with the third
issue being resolicited for a May release date.
Fathom: Fully recovered from his ordeal with cancer, Michael Turner is back
to the drawing table and Fathom’s publishing has re-commenced with issue #13
which is in stores now.
New Projects: Battle of the Planets (07/2002) and both Michael Turner
(11/2002) and Marc Silvestri (03/2003) have untitled projects that will be
announced in the next few weeks.
