Top Cow Productions Madame Mirage is set to hit stores this May, and if these cover previews don’t do anything for you, there are three more reasons this could be a big hit.

First up, it is written by Paul Dini who has been writing Detective Comics, Lost, Harley Quinn, and most notably, Batman: The Animated Series. I love his stuff, and if Madame Mirage is anything like the work he’s done for Detective to date, I know the story telling is going to be top notch.

”Madame Mirage has long been a character near and dear to my heart”, remarked writer and creator, Dini in a prepared statement from Top Cow. “At one point I had the opportunity to introduce her in animation, but I always felt her first home should be in comics. Specifically Top Cow Comics as Kenneth and the team there really gets what Mirage is all about. Yes, she is thrilling and deadly, but that only scratches the surface on the character and the world she haunts. Like my work on Detective Comics and the TV series Lost, Madame Mirage will be steeped in mystery with twists and surprises every step of the way.”

The mysterious Madame Mirage is systematically and coldly hunting down the criminals of the shadowy ASI organization. But even these villains in business suits are at a loss as to why the beautiful woman has such a vendetta against them. The series will combine classic elements of crime noir fiction, intrigue, murder, and revenge with a high-tech world of espionage and deceit.

Second is the artwork. Wow! Yes, there are some of you who are going to say, “Yeah, you like the art because she has big bazooms,” and to an extent you are right, but I also like the art style, colors, and so on. I don’t expect all of the females in this series to have large breasts, but I predict everyone and everything will look extraordinary.

Finally, there is the price point for the debut issue. Top Cow is planning on selling Madam Mirage for a mere $.99. Considering most titles are going for a $2.99 minimum these days, being able to read a new issue for less than a buck is a welcome sign.

This is one of those titles, that is already on my must read list, and as the time draws near, I’m sure we’ll have some sneak peeks just for you.
