Previews Interviews Ron Marz about FCBD 2010 and Artifacts
The longtime writer of Top Cow's Witchblade, Ron Marz has also been behind its most recent, best-selling event comics, including Broken Trinity and First Born. This summer, the scribe shakes things up in the Top Cow Universe again with his Artifacts storyline.
For Free Comic Book Day, Silver sponsor Top Cow gives readers a taste of things to come with Artifacts: First Look, and Marz recently gave Freecomicbookday.com insight into the FCBD, the greater storyline it's tied to, and much more in an exclusive interview.
Freecomicbookday.com: Set your project up for those that might not know much about it. What can we expect to see in terms of story and art?
Marz: This year’s FCBD offering is a lead-in to the Artifacts storyline, which is the biggest series Top Cow has ever done. Artifacts #1 debuts in July, so the FCBD book introduces the main concepts and characters that will appear in the series. The issue is written by me, with art by my Witchblade partner, Stjepan Sejic. The point-of-view character in the issue is Aphrodite IV, who will play a large role in Artifacts, especially issue #1. The FCBD issue will also contain interviews and text pieces about Artifacts.
