Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik Interviewed

Newsarama have published a really interesting interview with Top Cow publication Filip Sablik - recorded I believe at C2E2 - in which he talks about a number of current and future Top Cow projects including Witchblade, The Darkness, Artifacts, Pilot Season, Murderer, Stealth and Stellar.

here to load the video.

Of particular interest to me from this interview were some details about the forthcoming Velocity mini-series. Told over four issues the story will see Velocity with just 60 minutes to save her team members who, it transpires, are in a variety of locations scattered around the world.

Issue one, we are told, will set up the story while issues two, three and four will see the story unfold in real time: every page will represent one minute of time. Nice idea.

I'd preordered the book some time ago and having now heard the plans for the 'real time' format I'm looking forward to reading it even more.

Velocity #1

The Pilot Season Winner is Back
Carin Taylor is the fastest woman in the world. At least, she'd better be if she wants to save her own life and the lives of her Cyberforce teammates. When a former Cyberdata scientist - and test subject - seeks revenge against the members of Cyberforce, only Velocity can save her friends before the clock literally runs out. Bringing together writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and artist Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer) for the first time. Featuring two covers by Rocafort and Chriscross (Captain Marvel).
