the official comic-book franchise operators for
Eidos Interactive's Tomb Raider adventure series,
announced on Wednesday several changes in the
creative teams on its core titles. According to
a press release from the company, executives stated
faces, new concepts, and a renewed passion by
the core creators have energized Top Cow with
a solid start to the new year. New creative teams
prepare to rock the status quo on both Witchblade
and Tomb Raider, Fathom resumes its publishing
schedule, the Darkness gets a new look, Inferno
continues its heat and many exciting new characters
and concepts loom on the horizon."
Original Witchblade writer and co-creator David
Wohl takes over the writing with Witchblade #54.
A new talent find of last year, Francis Manipul,
will be penciling.
Raider: John Ney Reiber is the new writer as of
#21, and former Witchblade artist Randy Green
takes over as penciler.
Paul Jenkins is teaming with Dale Keown.
Top Cow owner/founder Marc Silvestri continues
to pencil Inferno, with artist Clarence Lansang
doing a planned single fill in with #4. Held up
originally by trademark issues that delayed the
first issue's release and prevented Silvestri
from commencing the second until just recently,
the title is back on track in terms of scheduling
with the third issue being re-solicited for a
May release date.
Fully recovered from his ordeal with cancer, Michael
Turner is back to the drawing table and Fathom's
publishing has re-commenced with #13, which is
in stores now.
Battle of the Planets is scheduled for July. Both
Turner (November) and Silvestri (March) have untitled
projects that will be announced in the next few
