This summer, Top Cow Productions will launch a huge limited crossover series featuring the cybernetic killers of Cyberforce, and the Ultra Sapiens of Hunter-Killers.  While the storyline is being kept a secret, we do know Mark Waid will be writing with Kenneth Rocafort providing all the art.

“I can’t wait to work with Kenneth again,” said Waid in a prepared statement. “He blew my mind when I first saw his Hunter-Killer pages during the first run. To be brutally honest, it’s rare that I see a new artist whose work doesn’t feel redundant or a clone of something else already out there. Kenneth’s energy knocks me out.”

“This is a dream come true to draw one of my favorite teams of all time, Cyberforce,” said Rocafort, who was a fan of Top Cow books well before he started drawing for them. “And to combine that with the characters of Hunter-Killer, which I love to draw, and working with Mark again, this is an exciting project for me.”

Take the jump for a Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer pin-up and character sketches from Rocafort.

“The past two summers, we’ve focused on the more supernatural aspects of our universe with First Born and Broken Trinity,” said Rob Levin, VP Editorial for Top Cow. “Next summer, we’re going to shine a light on our tech-based heroes. Mark Waid is one of my favorite writers out there. And Kenneth…that guy is unstoppable. The work he’s doing is going to melt eyeballs, and dare I say it, crack the Internet in quarters. Quarters!”

    So, is this an admission that the team dynamic of Cyberforce works better than concurrent Cyblade and Velocity solo series? For that matter, this makes me think about what the heck happened at the end of Hunter-Killer in the first place. Didn’t they leave it open to another “season” happening?

    Top Cow’s on again/off again way of handling their properties drives me crazy.

    Over the past 12 months, I’ve picked most of Top Cows current titles and some tpbs and have been very impressed. Hunter Killer was a great book and I am enjoying the current Cyblade series. The $2.99 price promise is a bonus too!
    I don’t see this as any sort of admission that the solo series aren’t working. Many characters exist in solo series and team books.
