Newsarama: ARTIFACTS: Prologue 4: The Magdalena & Spear of Destiny

Now in Part 4, it's the religious artifact, the Spear of Destiny, and its wielder, the Magdalena, descendant of Jesus the Christ.

Separately, 13 Artifacts guide the fate of the universe. Together, 13 Artifacts will end the universe.

This summer, Top Cow Productions, Inc. kicks off the 13-issue world shattering event series with Artifacts #1. The first chapter, presented by writer Ron Marz and artist Michael Broussard, marks the beginning of the path that will forever alter the course of the Top Cow Universe.

Reporting from the underbelly of New York for the weekly Twilight Alternative is Gretchen Fullmer, byline “Gretch.” She is the go-to-girl for late-breaking news if you believe in Angels, Demons, or Homicide Detectives who bear supernatural gauntlets. Her dedication to unearthing the news that the other scandal tabloids deem too fantastic and unbelievable for print keeps her in the know of the forces that truly guide this world.

There are 8 weeks remaining until Artifacts begins.

But at the right cathedral, with a little bit of prodding and a few bucks dropped in the poor box, you’ll earn yourself a ticket to the story of the spear that pierced the side of Christ.
