Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on Apr 8, 2010
Top Cow is a proud sponsor of C2E2 and can be found at booth #551. Fans who stop by the Top Cow booth will be among the first to be able to get a glimpse and purchase Magdalena #1 by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Green Lantern) and Nelson Blake II (Pilot Season: Murderer, The Darkness). The story centers on Patience, the current Magdalena and bearer of the Spear of Destiny in the Top Cow Universe. Patience finds herself unable to trust those in charge of the Catholic Church and faced with the decision if she can work with them to fulfill her role as the Church’s protector or not. Magdalena #1 will arrive in stores on Wednesday, April 21st.
The publisher will be offering two exclusive C2E2 variant covers for the event: a wrap-around Magdalena #1 variant by Blake II and a Darkness #84 photo cover featuring Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs. The exclusives are both extremely limited and will be initially made available at C2E2. Fans will also be able to pick up numerous free promotional items, posters and free comics at the Top Cow booth. Fans interested in sketches from some of the artists should stop by at the beginning of each day to acquire a sketch ticket. Sketch tickets are limited to one per attendee per day. Publisher Filip Sablik will be available throughout the show for portfolio reviews for aspiring artists.
Top Cow will be joined at C2E2 by the following guests: writers Ron Marz (Witchblade, Green Lantern), Phil Hester (The Darkness, Green Arrow), Joshua Hale Fialkov (Pilot Season: Alibi, Tumor) and Bryan Edward Hill (Broken Trinity: Pandora’s Box); pencillers Nelson Blake II (Pilot Season: Murderer, Magdalena), Eric Basaldua (Hunter-Killer, Witchblade Annual) and Alessandro Vitti (Broken Trinity: Pandora’s Box, Secret Warriors); and inker Ryan Winn (The Darkness).
