Top Cow Announces Three New Titles, Kickstarter Project and Editorial Appointments
At its panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Top Cow unveiled three new titles, Blood Stain, Romulus and Symmetry, that touch on the sci-fi and conspiracy genres from creators Linda Sejic, Bryan Hill and Nelson Blake, and Matt Hawkins and Raff Ienco.
The publisher also announced a Kickstarter to fund a comic book that coincides with a multimedia project about a "human-reaper hybrid" called September Mourning. The book is from a concept by Emily Lazar and Marc Silvestri, and will be written by Mariah McCourt with art by Silvestri and Summeye Kesgin.
According to the September Mourning website, the project also includes an album, but the artists behind it consider it a "theatrical art piece."
Here's Top Cow's synopses for its three new titles, along with launch dates:
Written by Matt Hawkins (Think Tank); art by Raff Ienco (Epic Kill)
In the future and for the greater good of the human species, all individuality, creativity and negative emotions have been genetically bred out and medically suppressed. Only one man and one woman seem to notice, care or think differently. Once they find each other, their relationship sparks a revolution...but will their love cause the salvation or destruction of mankind?
Written by Bryan Hill (Postal) with art by Nelson Blake (Magdalena)
The last in a line of near-mystical martial artists wages a revolutionary war against The Order of Romulus, the ancient secret society that trained her -- a global organization, hidden in plain sight, that's controlled the world since the days of Ancient Rome.
By Linda Sejic (Tales of Honor)
Mad science at its finest. Chemistry major, Elliot Torres has been unable to keep a steady job and eventually accepts a job by a rumored mad scientist Dr. Vlad Stein. Humorous hijinks ensue as their collaboration becomes epic.

Top Cow also announced that it has hired Hill (writer of the new Romulus series) as a story editor and colorist Betsy Gonia as an editor.
