Top Cow has announced the winners in its Pilot Season MySpace competition. Over the last several months, the company has released stand alone pilot issues for readers, who could then vote for their favorite at the MySpace website.
The winners after the jump.
Surprisingly it looks like it is a tie between Cyblade and Velocity.
Velocity will be written by original Pilot Season writer Joe Casey (The Last Defenders,Youngblood) and an artist to be named later. â€œI couldnâ€™t believe the voting topped four million votes,â€ marveled Casey. â€œBetter than a New Hampshire primary! If only that many folks would buy the comics…! In any case, the Pilot issue was only the beginning of what weâ€™re going to make sure is a wild ride when the new series hits in the fall.â€
Cyblade will see the return of the Pilot Season team of Joshua Hale Fialkov (Marvel Comics Presents, Punks The Comic Book) and Rick Mays (Kabuki, Gen 13). â€œIâ€™m incredibly grateful to everyone who voted for the book, and Iâ€™m positive they wonâ€™t be disappointed with where the series goes,â€ said Fialkov. â€œItâ€™s going to be balls-to-the-wall explodo, and Iâ€™m psyched to be along for the ride.â€
The new ongoing series will be released in the fall.
