Top Cow Productions Inc. is proud to announce that many of its creators will be participating in Free Comic Book Day (May 3, 2008) by making public appearances at select comic book stores across the country.
Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores. This is the seventh year the event is being held.
“Free Comic Book Day is one of the few days you can count on seeing a lot of families out to the comic book store together,” observed Phil Hester, who writes The Darkness. “Kids mean new readers, if not for a darker book like The Darkness, but at least for comics in general!”
Hester is just one of the many Top Cow creators who will go out on Free Comic Book Day to meet fans. “I’m so proud that many of our writers and artists are helping to create buzz for Free Comic Book Day at their local shops,” said VP of Sales and Marketing Mel Caylo. “We love our fans as much as they love us, plus, this is a great way to earn ourselves some new readers!”
As part of Free Comic Book Day, Top Cow is releasing an eight-page prelude to its big summer event, Broken Trinity, written by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Samurai: Heaven and Earth) and drawn by Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade, First Born). The issue also contains four-page introductions to each of its flagship titles, Witchblade and The Darkness.
