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.Â While the storyline is being kept a secret, we do know Mark Waid will be writing with Kenneth Rocafort providing all the art.
â€œI canâ€™t wait to work with Kenneth again,â€ said Waid in a prepared statement. â€œHe blew my mind when I first saw his Hunter-Killer pages during the first run. To be brutally honest, itâ€™s rare that I see a new artist whose work doesnâ€™t feel redundant or a clone of something else already out there. Kennethâ€™s energy knocks me out.â€
â€œThis is a dream come true to draw one of my favorite teams of all time, Cyberforce,â€ said Rocafort, who was a fan of Top Cow books well before he started drawing for them. â€œAnd 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.â€
Take the jump for a Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer pin-up and character sketches from Rocafort.
â€œThe past two summers, weâ€™ve focused on the more supernatural aspects of our universe with First Born and Broken Trinity,â€ said Rob Levin, VP Editorial for Top Cow. â€œNext summer, weâ€™re going to shine a light on our tech-based heroes. Mark Waid is one of my favorite writers out there. And Kennethâ€¦that guy is unstoppable. The work heâ€™s doing is going to melt eyeballs, and dare I say it, crack the Internet in quarters. Quarters!â€
