Top Cow Productions has announced Angelus is getting the Pilot Season treatment this October. The Pilot Season series is a way for fans to vote on their favorite character who will then get their own series in 2008.
“It’s been a pleasure and privilege to be invited to take part in Top Cow’s Pilot Season. To expand on the characters of The Angelus and Celestine, to contribute to the Top Cow canon and top it off by being team-up with the peerless Stjepan Sejic. It really doesn’t get any better than this!” stated writer Edgington in a prepared statement.
Take the jump for more information and the full cover.
More than any of the other Pilot Season issues, The Angelus Pilot Season #1 will be impacted by the events of Top Cow’s summer event First Born. It’s fitting that the art chores will be handled by the painter who redefined The Angelus in First Born, Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade). Joining Sejic will be writer Ian Edgington (2000 AD, Warhammer: 40,000) who plans to delve right into the new relationship between The Angelus, the primal force of Light in the Top Cow Universe, and Celestine, the bi-polar adversary from Witchblade. Together the two characters are more than just the sum of their parts, but even as Celestine is gaining a long sought after sense of peace and The Angelus begins to question if she is more than simply a weapon of righteous wrath, they are confronted by Celestine’s dark past. Celestine is going to find out that you never turn your back on The Family!
