?We?re thrilled to be working with the Top Cow team,? said City of Heroes
Lead Designer Jack Emmert. ?Top Cow is putting together a lineup of artists and writers who are tops in this business. This is an experienced team that has a strong track record for making quality comics. The big winners will be our players, who are really going to enjoy this new experience.?
As the official comic book for City of Heroes, the ongoing series will focus on the signature heroes from the online game: The Freedom Phalanx: Statesman, Manticore, Positron, Sister Psyche, and Synapse. ?Our goal is to bridge the gap between game players and comics readers with something that appeals to both and conjures the best elements of both media,? says Top Cow Productions President Matt Hawkins. ?I?ve been playing the game since it came out and met with game creator Jack Emmert and NCsoft product marketing manager Kevin Sullivan. Our discussions eventually let to this deal and announcement.?
