Early Review/Preview Fusion

You have to love a good crossover. We don't see a lot of inter-company crossover these days. It seems that some publishers are too competitive to simply don't get along. Not so with Top Cow. Top Cow is about to release it's massive crossover with Marvel featuring Cyberforce, Hunter-Killer, the Mighty Avengers (pre-Secret Invasion) and the Thunderbolts.

The key to a good crossover is the set up. There has to be a good reason for the different characters to meet and/or fight each other. The nice thing about this is it's not crammed into one issue (like some past Top Cow/Marvel crossovers). Things are set up here. We get a taste of what is to come. And it tastes pretty good. We have a great creative team handling this. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are doing the writing with Tyler Kirkham doing the art. It looks good and we get a credible situation to bring the teams together.
