Active Voting Begins Monday December 17th!
Top Cow is proud to announce that the official home of Pilot Season on MySpace, the world’s leading social networking site, is now online and fully live. Fans can direct their browsers to www.myspace.com/pilotseason to participate in the voting process, download exclusive content, and interact directly with creators involved with Pilot Season.
Pilot Season is the innovative publishing initiative from Top Cow Productions that places fans in control of the publisher’s 2008 publishing plans. Top Cow released five self-contained pilot issues starring established characters without a current series by established creative teams. Each issue sets up a potential series much like a television pilot episode. Fans will determine which two series get their own series in 2008 by voting online at www.myspace.com/pilotseason. Fans can vote as often and as many times as they like and those fans who purchased all five pilot issues will be rewarded with a secret voting code that allows for their votes to count double the normal votes.
In addition to hosting the voting mechanism the Pilot Season home page will feature downloadable content fans can use to promote their favorite character, exclusive blog entries by the Pilot Season creators, and forums for fans to interact with each other and creators. Voting will become active on Monday, December 17th and will continue through January 21st. The winners will be announced in February. Fans are encouraged to check back with the site frequently for new exclusive content and to track the progress of the election.
“This is what it all comes down to – the fans getting in there and telling us what they want to see more of. It took us a bit longer than expected to get our Death Star fully operational but it was worth the wait. It’s a bold untested experiment and I for one can’t wait to see the fans take control,” said Top Cow Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Filip Sablik.
The final Pilot Season issue, The Angelus: Pilot Season #1 is in stores this week. Additional information regarding Pilot Season can be found at www.myspace.com/pilotseason.
