The Necromancer Returns in Pilot Season

Necromancer Pilot Season #1 coverPress Release

Top Cow Productions is pleased to announce the fourth release in their Fall promotion, Pilot Season – The Necromancer Pilot Season #1. Pilot Season takes six established characters and puts them each in a self-contained “pilot issue” by different all star creative teams. Once all six issues have been released, fans will be able to vote online to determine which two characters will star in their own series in 2008!

In The Necromancer Pilot Season #1 original series writer, Joshua Ortega (Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer, Star Trek: The Manga) returns to the character he helped create. Original series artist Francis Manapul (Iron & The Maiden, Legion of Super-heroes) graces the cover art and selected the new interior artist to continue his vision, Jonboy Meyers (Ninja Scroll). The Harvey nominated property picks up after the events in issue #6 of the original series, with Abby van Alstine investigating the events that brought her to this point. When she encounters a new monstrous evil that threatens to consume her, the story takes a turn towards a surprise ending that no one will see coming!

“It’s great to be back on The Necromancer and to get a chance to chronicle more of Abby’s journey into the secret world of magic,” stated writer Ortega, “Necromancer is easily one of my favorite projects that I’ve ever worked on, and as I’ve said before, I’ve got about 50 issues planned for Abby and The Necromancer cast. So if we get a great response from the fans during Pilot Season, that’ll bring us that much closer to seeing her story through!”

“The Necromancer is definitely a serious contender in Pilot Season,” added Filip Sablik, Vice President of Marketing & Sales for Top Cow, “Joshua and Francis did a fantastic job building up a hard core fan following with the original series and I have no doubt those fans will get out there and campaign their hearts out for Necromancer to be one of the winners in Pilot Season.”

The Necromancer Pilot Season #1 can be ordered through Diamond under DCD code AUG072049 and is expected in stores in October. Ripclaw Pilot Season #1 is currently in stores under (DCD code AUG072049) and Cyblade Pilot Season #1 (DCD code JUL071977) will be in stores on September 12th while Velocity Pilot Season #1 (DCD code JUL071975) will be in stores on September 26th.
