Comicvine Reviews Witchblade #124

I meant to review this last Tuesday but it's been a busy week. When I started reading this issue, I started getting a little concerned. Sara and Dani have become like sisters with everything they've gone through together. For whatever reason fate has decided to have them share the Witchblade, they have a bond that can't be broken. Yet both seem to be acting out of character.


Mark Waid posts Hunter-Killer proposal on

The difference between a pitch and the next stage of the development process—a proposal—is story. A proposal must demonstrate that your pitch has “legs” by providing a more specific outline of events, additional background on the characters, and some sample plots.

As with most every document in comics, there is no “right” way to format a proposal, but I’ve found through years of experience that this is what works best for me:

Lead with the high concept, a brief but dynamic one- or two-sentence description of the idea—

—follow that with a little more detail on the bigger picture, clarifying the who, what, where, when, how and why of it all—

—next, give brief bios of the main characters—no more than a short paragraph for each, but enough about them so that whoever’s reading your proposal can have a good handle on them by the time they get to—

—the outline, a more detailed version of “the bigger picture” that walks us gradually through the series an issue or two at a time. Provided it’s interesting to read, feel free to devote about a page to synopsizing issue one, a half-page or so to issue two, and gradually less detail for the next handful of installments. At this point, you’re still in the proposal stage, so you’re walking the fine line between showing you have confidence in your ideas and revealing that you’re so in love with them that you have every page of your opus worked out nine years in advance, which frightens every editor ever. If, as you’re writing your proposal, you’re not sure of the difference, imagine buying a car. Imagine buying it from a confident, knowledgeable salesman who demonstrates its most attractive features and then lets the merchandise do the talking. Then imagine buying it from a salesman who won’t let you leave the showroom until he explains in excruciating detail exactly how the high-performance fuel injection system interfaces with the 1.6L 4cyl VTEC-E engine and insists on giving you the 82-year history of the factory that tooled the camshaft. My point is, don’t overwhelm.

Then end your document with a fitting summary/conclusion.


Top Cow Reveals February Participating Stores for "Let Us Win YOU Over"

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Top Cow Productions, Inc. announced today that their “Let Us Win YOU Over” initiative would begin in February and the inaugural title in the program would be the highly anticipated anniversary issue – The Darkness #75.

The “Let Us Win YOU Over” initiative is a yearlong campaign by Top Cow Productions to give out free copies of its regular comics to potential fans in the U.S. and Canada through participating comic book stores. Each month, a different set of stores, each month a different free comic. The stores vary by geography and demographics. Top Cow has partnered with ComicsPRO to bring this promotion to fans and all of the retailers are members of ComicsPRO.

Some rather fiendish combat and a lot of slow-motion bullet-fire failed to ruin my second hands-on demo of March’s “Wanted: Weapons of Fate” game, even if the game’s producer was certain I’d be too squeamish. Wary of my reaction, he began my hands-on time with the game in a most unusual way…


“I should have brought you the German version,” Pete Wanat, producer of the upcoming game “Wanted: Weapons of Fate” said as he greeted me last week for a demo of his game. German versions of games tend to be tamer than their global counterparts due to that country’s content restrictions. Wanat was joking. Sort of.


Top Cow Announces First-Ever Witchblade Annual

Top Cow Productions, Inc. announced today that fan favorite Witchblade will get a long deserved, first-ever, annual issue in Witchblade Annual 2009, something diehard fans have been waiting for since the series debut in 1995.

"I had a great time working with all the guys at Top Cow during Pilot Season, so when they asked me to pitch ideas for the Witchblade Annual, I jumped at the chance. I love what Ron Marz is doing with the book, so I tried to remain true to the tone he set," commented writer Jay Faerber.

GEN reviews Witchblade #124

Witchblade #124 is a “very special episode of Oprah.” Or just a comic, whatever.
Now that I have the entire Oprah cult glued to the screen—because they’re definitely the target audience here, of course—we can discuss a little Witchblade. The “Crown Heights” epilogue definitely proves to be an essential issue, as it leaves Sara Pezzini and Danielle Baptiste’s friendship in tatters, their world in jeopardy, and introduces the next foe by the end of the book.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate Progress Report

If you're a bad guy in the Wanted: Weapons of Fate world, you should probably start wearing a knife-proof cup. Sure, when you think of this comic/movie franchise that's now gearing up for its videogame debut, curving bullets into people's brains probably comes to mind, but after a full day of seeing and playing this game, I can tell you it's the knife attacks that will keep you coming back for more. There's people getting stabbed in the balls and lifted off their feet, there are blade-to-blade fights, there are guys getting kicked in the knee and having their throats slit so that blood sprays onto the screen, there's cutlery getting buried in chests, and there's even the option for your assassin to reach across cover and stab baddies in the head.

Comic Book Resources previews Witchblade #124

Witchblade wielders Sara Pezzini and Dani Baptiste find themselves at odds over the fate of a girl Dani has taken on as a dance student. Could this be the end of their friendship and perhaps the start of something far more deadly? This issue sets the stage for a storyline that will change Sara, Dani and the Witchblade forever!


The Quarter Bin reviews Dragon Prince #4

By now, it’s no secret that I’m a fan of Ron Marz. His name is on the short list of writers that I’ll read anytime they have something coming out. A book like Dragon Prince isn’t necessarily something I would pick up, but since it’s a Ron Marz penned project, I gave it a shot. Now that the first mini-series is complete, I’m actually pretty glad I followed this story all the way through.


CBG reviews

Jazma Online reviews Dragon Prince #4 and Darkness #10/74

Dragon Prince #4
Its all in the family. A family torn apart by what they think is right or wrong. Should dragons roam free?
A young dragon just learning his way has some serious adventures ahead. The art and colors bring out the magic within these pages giving it life. It is truely an artistic delight. The dragon is a majestic sight. The artwork brings out the power in it. READ MORE.

Darkness #10/74
Jackie has become a collections man. He now works for Sovereign. How the mighty have fallen. He is a shell of his former self.
Jackie can be one sadistic mean SOB. Phil Hester writes a compelling story. Jackie's character grabs your attention. Jackie is by no means shown as a good person he does though have a way of dealing with those who are outright evil. Jackie is an anti-hero he does whatever he feels is right and to hell with the consequences. His character is one of no morals where he is concerned with doing what he thinks is right. READ MORE.

Common Grounds spotlighted on CBR's Comics Should Be Good! blog

Every day this month I’m going to feature a current comic book writing “star,” someone who I think is a very good writer.

I’m mostly going to try to keep from the biggest names as much as possible, because, really, do I need to talk more about the awesomeness of Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Warren Ellis?

Here is the archive of previously featured writers.

Today we look at the unannounced second part of our two-part feature on writers named Hickman!


Top Cow's $2.99 in 2009 mentioned during FbR Episode #500

Give a listen to our buddies, Scott and Oliver, as they discuss Top Cow's $2.99 in 2009 pledge during Fanboy Radio's 500th episode with a caller. It's about mid-way through the episode.


Comic Book Review reviews The Darkness #10

Another issue of The Darkness! Just another comic I eagerly await the release of each month. While The Darkness #10 (aka Legacy #74) might not be an essential issue, it’s still an enjoyable read. On the other hand, the reading does progress a bit sluggishly. But hey—when you’re Jackie Estacado and you’re submerged in a deep vat of turkey poo, you might be a little torpid, too.


Graze Anatomy: Sketches from Your Publisher

Today's sketch is pretty simple, even by my standards. I play on a weekly rec dodgeball team here in Los Angeles. It's a fun escape a couple of nights a week and a great way to relieve stress. It's also allowed me to meet some unique, cool people as a new transplant to the City of Angels. The teams get quite creative about uniforms and whatnot and so when they discovered I could draw, they requested I work up a crest for our team, "The Old Balls".
The next couple of days will feature some sketch ideas for the crest. I hope they amuse you. This one is a Griffon to symbolize the country club, regal nature of "The Old Balls".

Comic Book Resources reviews Dragon Prince #4

Aaron Chiang's adventures continue, so I sat down with my daughter, Amanda, and we took a look at the final issue in this first (I hope) "Dragon Prince" mini series.

"I like it! Good ending," are the words my eleven-year-old Amanda had to share following her reading of this issue. Amanda liked how it ended, but wonders how the Dragon Hunter's story is going to end. Does he find a family of his own? Will we see more adventures with him? Amanda is officially curious about what happens next, moreso with the Hunter than Aaron and his family.

Filip Sablik posts a new Blog @Newsarama

Here at Top Cow, we don’t publish a lot of straight up superhero comics. Most of the stuff we do is rooted more in other genres like horror, supernatural, sci-fi, espionage, and so on. Even the superhero style projects we do like Wanted or Twilight Guardian tend to be a bit left (or right) of center. I (like almost all fanboys) grew up on a steady diet of superhero comics. My first love was The Uncanny X-Men during the Chris Claremont/Marc Silvestri/Jim Lee era. Years later, the 14-year-old part of me still can’t believe I’m working for one of the guys who initially got me excited about the art form. Thanks to George Perez and Marv Wolfman, I will always have a soft spot for The Teen Titans. But at some point in college I realized that my favorite superhero is Superman.


Best Shots reviews Dragon Prince #4

There are some really great moments in this series and I've really enjoyed it. Lee Moder's style really fits Ron Marz's script very well. It's not gritty or edgy. There's no tits and ass. It's just an enjoyable story that readers of almost any age can pick up. I know it's just the beginning of the year, but I'm sure this will make my top picks. It'll be released in trade sometime this year, so if you missed it the first time, be sure to scoop it up.

Top Cow has released a preview of Dragon Prince #4 by Ron Marz and Lee Moder, with covers by Moder, Jeff Johnson, Ryan Sook and David Petersen. The solicitation for the issue reads: Imprisoned in a dungeon high up in the Himalaya Mountains, Aaron Chiang comes face to face with the father he always believed was dead – the Dragon King. Can father and son manage to escape from their imprisonment…or will one have to sacrifice his own life to save that of the other? The modern fantasy by Ron Marz and Lee Moder roars to its pulse-pounding climax! Featuring a special variant cover by Ryan Sook (Countdown)!


Quarter Bin reviews The Darkness #10/74

I’m ready to follow this story wherever it goes, though. I just hope it continues to be as good as the last two issues have been. The Darkness #10/#74 is in comic shops now, and it’s worth adding to your buy pile.

Graze Anatomy: Sketches from Your Publisher

I just recently read the complete "War of the Witchblades" and I have to admit I got pretty giddy. I knew the general idea of what we were going to do, of course, but Ron always throws in additional ideas when he fleshes out a story that just get me excited. Here's a sketch of Dani pondering the burden of the Witchblade as a result.

These panelists, who join keynote speaker and Pulitzer Prize winner Art Spiegelman, include key executives, creators, and other industry figures who will bring their impressive credentials to this important discussion of the graphic novel medium and industry.


Another online reaction to $2.99 in 2009

Top Cow has actually done something very bold and exciting by pledging to hold all their cover prices at $2.99 through 2009. Sounds great to me! Publisher Filip Sablik has made a commitment to their current and potential (that’s me!) fans that I believe should be supported.


Wanted nominated for two Academy Awards!

Girls Entertainment Network reviews Wanted DVD

Recently the comic ladies and I put together a list of our favorite comics from 2008. One of the categories was Comic Movies, and one of VirtualGirl’s picks was the adaptation of Top Cow’s Wanted. Regretably, I hadn’t seen the film, but figured I better get crackin’. So I finally got around to watching Wanted, based on the Top Cow graphic novel by writer Mark Millar and artist J. G. Jones. I haven’t read the comic either, but I am a big Millar fan. Well, I’m going to have to pick up the dvd along with the movie, because for the most part I loved it.

This was a warm up sketch I did quickly before finally working on an actual full size comic page. As you can see I'm still playing around with some ideas for Glorianna Silver from Broken Trinity. Enjoy!

Stjepan Sejic interviewed by Wizard

It's a fact Witchblade fans have known since the Croatian artist (whose name is pronounced Stee-pan Say-itch, if you're wondering) took over the book, giving it a whole new visual identity with his three-dimensional fusion of paint and digital editing, using light to give figures definition and depth. With Volume #6, the first trade collecting Sejic's work on Witchblade issues #116-120, we asked the artist about his experience so far.

Pop Culture Zoo reveals Top Cow April Solicitations

Top Cow Productions has sent over their solicitations for comics, books and products scheduled to ship in April 2009. Make note that their regular sized books are still priced at $2.99, so if you’re dropping titles from other publishers due to a price increase you might want to consider replacing them with some of the comics below. Just sayin’. READ MORE.

NYPD Detective Sara Pezzini wields half of the powerful ancient artifact known as the Witchblade. But now she faces a foe that predates even the mystical gauntlet, confronting a deadly horror that has descended upon Brooklyn’s Ultra Orthodox Jewish community. Could the biblical Angel of Death truly have been unleashed?

Meanwhile, the bearer of the other half of the Witchblade, Dani Baptiste, goes to the aid of one of her dance students, but is she being reckless with her power? READ MORE.

Pop Culture Shock reviews Witchblade #123

I’m honestly a bit worried about the latest issue of Witchblade. I’ve really enjoyed the supernatural murder mystery arc that’s been going on the last few issues, but I can’t shake the sinking feeling that the conclusion might end up being less than satisfying. And why is that? Because the big “January War ” (or will it be “March War” because of the delays?) storyline that Top Cow has been hyping up is on the horizon. And it leaves me thinking that some of Witchblade #123’s story might feel a bit rushed through just to make room for any set up that might be needed for the next arc. I hope I’m wrong, but I’ve definitely talked about Ron Marz rushing to conclusions before… READ MORE.

It’s gotten to the point now where I see the names Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic on the cover of an issue, and I just smile. It’s an involuntary thing, but it’s not hard to understand why. Like I’ve said time and time again, the two of them make a fantastic team on this series, and I can’t (and don’t want to) imagine Sara Pezzini and company in the hands of anyone else. READ MORE.

Troy Hickman begins his column on Blog@Newsarama

"So when it came time to write my first blog piece for Newsarama, I asked myself what I could bring to the table that was uniquely my own. Could it be the perspective of a bearded, overweight comics fan? Wow, that’s like carrying coals to Newcastle, or trying to sell Lemmy Kilmister on the benefits of facial wens. Perhaps I could talk about what it’s like to walk into a convention with a pro badge, and proudly notice everyone I pass eyeing it, right before they murmur “who the @#$% is Troy Hickman?” Nah, a column on that would serve only to make me long for the sweet release that oblivion will bring. I guess the obvious choice would be to use it to hype my upcoming Twilight Guardian mini-series, but hey, if I spent a lot of time trying to convince strangers to embrace something of mine, it’d be like dating again."


Weekly Comic Book Review reviews Witchblade #123

"As it turns out, the latest Witchblade is about as far from a conclusion as you can possibly get, even if it does bring about a few satisfying plot resolutions. And that readers, is a good thing. I’ll tell you why. The storyline (and battle) involving the voodoo spirit is surprisingly engaging since it seems to only scratch the surface of the bigger plot being developed."


Comicvine reviews Witchblade #123

"The "Crown Heights" storyline comes to a close but things are just beginning for Sara. In trying to solve the murder and meeting the voodoo Loa, Marinette Bwa Chech, Sara has more questions than answers. We also see more on Gretchen Fullmer's character and her crusade to discover what is going on with Detective Pezzini."


Broken Frontier reviews Witchblade #123

"Top Cow does two things very wisely in this issue. They continue their recent tradition of an intro page for new readers (paying attention, Marvel and DC?) and kick the story off with an in-your-face opener. A skeletal woman atop a similarly lifeless horse chasing a pretty young lady down an alley is a great attention grabber and Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic do their darnedest to keep your attention through the remainder of the issue."


Graze Anatomy: Sketches from Your Publisher

One of the benefits of being an artist (albeit an inferior one) in my position is that occasionally I can breach the gap between our writers and artists when words just don't get the idea across. Ron Marz had a very specific idea for a particular page in Witchblade #125 and it didn't convey quite right when Stjepan Sejic turned in his layouts. Rather than spend a bunch of time going back and forth trying to clarify with words, Ron just had me draw a quick thumbnail.

Top Cow's $2.99 in 2009 featured in Colorado Springs Gazette

Comic book shops - home to high-flying heroes and colorful adventures - appear to be weathering the economic crisis better than many retailers.

"The conventional wisdom has long been that comics do well in a bad economy in that they are relatively cheap entertainment and they're escapism," said Mike Coco, manager of Bargain Comics in downtown Colorado Springs. In fact, comics first rose to popularity during the Great Depression.

Sometimes me and the missus head over to our neighborhood Starbucks and hang out. We enjoy a cup of coffee and often times play a game of Scrabble.

I re-watched "Tropic Thunder" recently with the wife and found it just as funny as when I saw it in the theater. While we were watching the movie, I ended up doing some sketching including this sketch of Four Leaf Tayback. I thought Nick Nolte did a phenomenal job with the character.

The real winners in the movie though were of course Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. Those guys really elevated the movie to higher comedic genius.
