Pilot Season Brings Home 4 Million Votes!

Winners to be Announced on February 12th!

Top Cow Productions is incredibly proud to announce that from the final voting tally from fans at the official home of Pilot Season ( totaled over 4.1 million votes. The unprecedented comic event generated more interest from fans than even the publisher anticipated.

Pilot Season is the innovative publishing initiative from Top Cow Productions, which released five self-contained pilot issues starring established characters without a current series by established creative teams in 2007. Each issue set up a potential series in a similar manner to a television pilot episode. Fans were called to “Take Control” and vote online at to determine which two series receive their own series in 2008. Fans were allowed to vote as often and as many times as they like and those fans who purchased all five pilot issues were rewarded with a secret voting code that allowed for their votes to count double those without the special code. The two winning series will be announced on February 12th.

“A promotion like this is always a bit risky because you don’t know what kind of results you’re going to get. But the fans really impressed us with their enthusiasm with Pilot Season,” said Top Cow Publisher, Filip Sablik. “Over 4 million votes is almost unbelievable and we’re even more proud to say that all those votes are legitimate, without the aid of any scripts or bots. We’re incredibly proud of our fans and all of the talented creators involved in Pilot Season.”
