Broken Frontier: Pilot Season: Demonic #1 Sells Out!
Official Press Release
Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that following the path of Pilot Season: Murderer #1, the second installment of the 2009 Pilot Season, Pilot Season: Demonic #1, has also sold out at the distributor level.
”It’s really exciting to see the reactions of fans, reviewers, and retailers for the new Pilot Season concepts,” commented Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik. “We really appreciate the retailer support for another immediate sellout.”
From the creative minds of Image Comics partners Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible) and Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri (X-Men/Dark Avengers: Utopia, The Darkness), Pilot Season: Demonic #1 is 32 paged-look into the story of Scott Graves and his inner demon. Unfortunately for Scott, his demon manifests itself in his real life. Written by Kirkman and featuring art from Top Cow alumni Joe Benitez (Soulfire, The Darkness), Scott’s demon is only satiated when Scott kills. In a conflicted Faustian bargain, Scott will continue to kill as long as the demon promises not to make him kill his wife and daughter. Stalking the night as Demonic, a vigilante known for savagely slaughtering the wicked, Scott must asks himself how long can he continue living this way and if the demon is in fact real.
Top Cow Productions, Inc. plans to digitally release the comic through channels set up with partnered digital content producers for fans to catch up.
Up next for Pilot Season 2009 is Pilot Season: Stealth #1, set to hit stores in March. Written by Kirkman and featuring art from Top Cow studio artist Sheldon Mitchell (Trinity: Blood on the Sands, WItchblade: Annual), Pilot Season: Stealth #1 centers on the story of Todd Carey whose life is falling apart on him. While recovering from a nasty divorce, he learns that his daughter is flunking out of college and his father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Even though he is unable to really take care of himself, Todd allows his father to move in with him. What Todd doesn’t know is that his father is the masked vigilante Stealth, and has been his entire life. Stealth has many enemies and his erratic behavior could easily get him killed – and all these troubles fall squarely in Todd’s lap.
Pilot Season has been an annual Top Cow tradition since 2007 that give fans the power to choose the next Top Cow series based on a selection of one-shot Pilot Season “pilot” issues through online voting. The inaugural Pilot Season initiative garnered more than four million votes from fans across the globe.
Pilot Season: Demonic #1’s success joins five other recent sold-out Top Cow titles, The Darkness/Pitt #1, The Darkness/Pitt #2, Tracker #1, Angelus #1 and Pilot Season: Murderer #1.
