USA Today Chats with "Artifacts" Creators About Upcoming Series w/ Exclusive 5pg Preview!
In the upcoming 13-issue series Artifacts, writer Ron Marz dives headfirst into the unique mythology that ties together so many of the characters from publisher Top Cow's leading titles.
The story line will explain how 13 ancient, supernatural items (including the Witchblade, the Darkness, Magdalena's Spear of Destiny and the Crown of Angelus), if brought together, could spell the end of the world.
The series launch coincides with next month's Comic-Con in San Diego. Marz and series illustrator Michael Broussard took some time with USA TODAY to discuss Artifacts.
Q: How did the idea for Artifacts come about?
Marz: It came about more organically than most crossover storylines. It wasn't like we sat down and said, 'What's our big 2010 project?' This was driven by story a lot more than it was marketing concerns.
