Press Release:

MAKE A SPLASH WITH THE HERD AT SOUTH FLORIDA’S THREE DAY FESTIVAL

TOP COW AT FLORIDA SUPERCON

LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 16, 2010 – Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that they will be exhibiting at Florida Supercon in South Florida this weekend. Three three-day comic book, anime, animation, video game, fantasy and sci-fi convention will be open to the public on Friday, June 18 running through Sunday, June 20, 2010, at the Doubletree Miami Mart Airport Convention Center in Miami.

Fans who stop by the Top Cow booth will be among the first to get a glimpse and purchase Velocity #1 by Ron Marz (Witchblade, Artifacts) and Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer, Madame Mirage). The story centers on the 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. Velocity #1 will arrive in stores on Wednesday, June 30th.

The publisher will be offering two exclusive Florida Supercon variants for the event: a blank sketch Velocity #1 Past Present and Future Comics variant and a Rocafort line art Velocity #1 Tate’s Comics variant. The exclusives are both extremely limited and will be initially made available at Florida Supercon. Fans will also be able to pick up numerous free promotional items and free comics at the Top Cow booth. Publisher Filip Sablik will be available at 4:00-5:30pm on Saturday, June 19 and at 12:30-1:30pm on Sunday, June 20 for portfolio reviews for aspiring artists.

On Saturday, June 19 at 1:00-2:00pm, join Sablik as he shares with guests of the panel what’s coming from Top Cow in 2010, including exclusive early looks and exciting announcements.
