Yesterday saw Top Cow’s SDCC panel filled with exciting news and some mild disappointment. Here are the basics:
- Matt Hawkins announced a new book, The Tithe. Written by Hawkins and art by Rahsan Ekedal. Looks to be heist meets religion and a few images were released but none that gave any kind of clue.
- Marc Silvestri and his wife Bridget Silvestri will be publishing The Daily GORB, a series of illustrations they often leave for one another when their busy schedules keep them apart (awwww!).
- Top Cow will be launching a new Talent Hunt-style initiative called Top Cow Discovery which will be Kickstarter funded (keep in mind that the Cyber Force kickstarter was very successful a few years ago and resulted in free comics!). This seems very promising.
- September Mourning announced a new single called “Superhuman”.
The best news of all: Ron Marz is bringing back The Magdalena. After his immensely successful run on Artifacts, this should be a title to watch.
The bad news: No report on when “Darkness Falls” will be released – if it ever will be for that matter. Sigh. However, Top Cow claimed on their Facebook page (after the panel) “The Darkness is very much alive but in terms of the movie there are things we aren’t yet allowed to discuss, keep the faith!”
That was all the big news from Top Cow. In Tuesday’s column, we’ll be looking at some of the best sketches Marc Silvestri produced at the Top Cow signing table throughout the weekend.
