Pilot Season Winner Velocity Is Back
THE PILOT SEASON WINNER IS BACK!
LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 3, 2010 – Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that the Cyberforce character and winner of the 2007 Pilot Season, Velocity, will break out in her own series. Velocity #1, the first in a four-part series will hit comic book store shelves June 30, 2010.
Written by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Magdalena, Artifacts) and featuring art by Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer, Madame Mirage), Velocity #1 focuses on Carin Taylor, 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. The series will utilize a unique story-telling technique by having a literal ticking clock through out the series counting down one minute per page as Velocity races around the globe.
“I’ve been getting to use the supernatural side of the Top Cow Universe as my playground for a while now, so I jumped at the chance to write one of my favorites from the superhero/tech side. Plus, I’ve got a thing for redheads. I’ve also got a thing for Kenneth Rocafort, who I think is one of the brilliant artists working in comics right now. We’re going to pay off Velocity’s Pilot Season win with a story that’s got her literally running for her life, and the lives of her teammates.”
