Top cow is super excited to announce the kick off of Pilot Season 2007 with the debut of Ripclaw #1.
Ripclaw Pilot Season #1 features the founding member of Top Cow’s original team Cyberforce in a unique light. The Top Cow Universe’s resident badass enters the spotlight as he takes on Yakuza kingpin, Boss Yamamoto. But first he’ll have to fight his way through level after brutal level of deadly gun-toting thugs and sword-wielding assassins. The genre mashing tale is written by Eisner nominee and Vertigo darling Jason Aaron (Scalped, The Other Side) and Marvel regular Jorge Lucas (Incredible Hulk, Annihilation: Ronin).This initial issue features an intense cover by Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Exterminators) demonstrating why Ripclaw is not to be crossed.
“My goal with this book was to give Ripclaw a new direction and purpose, something that would be accessible to new readers,” said writer Jason Aaron in a prepared statement, “But at the same time, we haven’t turned our backs on what made Ripclaw so popular to begin with: he’s a guy with big claws, and those claws stay good and bloodied.”
Take the jump for the full cover.
Ripclaw Pilot Season #1 is available for $2.99.
