CA – Pilot Season 2010

Press Release:

Top Cow Productions, Inc. wants your votes for Pilot Season 2010, and to ensure fans can be educated voters, they are offering readers the opportunity to read all the contenders for this year’s Pilot Season for free.  In addition, the publisher invites fans to join them at this week’s Bagged and Boarded LIVE! at the SModCastle in Los Angeles to hear their pleas.
 
Up until the end of the voting period on November 30, 2010, 39 Minutes, Asset, Crosshair, Forever, and 7 Days From Hell will be available for free through many of Top Cow’s digital distribution partners including Wowio, MyDigitalComics.com, DriveThruComics.com, with more to come, as well as through select comic book and pop culture news sites like Comic Book Resources and Newsarama.
 
To further make their case, Asset writer and Top Cow publisher Filip Sablik, Crosshair writer Jeff Katz, Forever creator and Top Cow President Matt Hawkins and 7 Days From Hell writer Rob Levin will join Bagged and Boarded’s Matt Cohen and Brendan Creecy at the SModCastle (6468 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA).  Tickets to the show are available for purchase here: http://smodcastle.com/tickets.html.  If fans are unable to attend the live show, the show will be available online shortly after its recording, or fans can head to the Top Cow YouTube page for video pleas from the creators themselves.
 
Polling stations are now set up at the Top Cow site (www.topcow.com) with additional polling stations to appear on various comics news sites, blogs and social media platforms.  Readers can vote multiple times a day up until the polls close on November 30, 2010.
 
Pilot Season is an annual initiative Top Cow began in 2007 that borrows its concept from the television industry: “Pilots” are submitted for consideration to be “picked up for a season,” except instead of TV executives deciding their fates; it’s the fans who decide by voting online. 
 
Previous winners of Pilot Season include: Cyblade, Velocity, Twilight Guardian, and Genius.  Velocity can currently be found at your local comic book shop shelves, with Twilight Guardian and Genius debuting in 2011.
