With school out, and the convention schedule well under way, comic publishers are pulling out all the stops to bring you signings and show exclusives. Top Cow slipped us a peek at its show exclusive and programming schedule, and now I’m really envious of those attending WWP.

Top Cow will be represented heavily at Wizard World Philadelphia with four of comics’ brightest creators appearing for signings at the Top Cow (Booth, #1501) Ron Marz (Ion, Samurai: Heaven & Earth) the architect behind Top Cow’s summer event, First Born, will appear on Friday and Saturday. Rising star Michael Broussard, artist on the upcoming Unholy Union special and the recently announced new ongoing The Darkness series and Eric Basaldua, Top Cow superstar and convention favorite, will appear all three days of the show. Iconic cover artist Greg Horn will appear at the Top Cow booth on Friday. Wizard World Philadelphia also marks the first US appearance of hot new artist Kenneth Rocafort and the debut of Paul Dini’s Madame Mirage #1.

Additionally, Top Cow has announced three new convention exclusives including a shared exclusive variant with Fantastic Realm for Madame Mirage #1 featuring an original piece by Kenneth Rocafort. Also available at the show will be First Born: First Look with a new cover by Michael Broussard and Witchblade Takeru Manga #5 featuring a new cover by Eric Basaldua. Top Cow will hold two panels including a Wizard School on Marketing on Friday afternoon and a Top Cow panel on Saturday afternoon which will see the debut of a brand new Top Cow trailer and exciting announcements about upcoming events in the Fall. Attendees for both panels will receive an exclusive mini lithograph for stopping by.
