Of all of the Pilot Season titles being released from Top Cow, Aphrodite IX is being pulled by the publisher.
“The decision to cancel Aphrodite IX Pilot Season was a tough one,” explained Matt Hawkins, President of Top Cow, “The issue wasn’t coming together in a way that would work for Pilot Season. We didn’t want to risk delaying the voting process for Pilot Season or releasing a pilot issue we weren’t completely happy with, so the responsible thing to do was to remove it from the promotion. Fans haven’t seen the last of Aphrodite IX though.”
Pilot Season will continue with five titles; Ripclaw, Cyblade, Velocity, The Necromancer, and The Angelus.
I’m happy Top Cow isn’t giving up on Aphrodite IX, and I hope we do get to see the full issue next year.
In the mean time, check out the full color cover (not previously released) to the issue that almost was.
