Top Cow Productions has announced its plans for the San Diego Comic-Con, featuring booth signings, exclusives, and panel information.

Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today its plans for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the world’s biggest and most exciting popular culture convention brought together in the San Diego Convention Center in California from July 23rd-26th.

Top Cow will set up in booth #2629 and barrels into the convention with exclusives, preview books and free goodies to augment their headlining announcements, including free copies of Berserker #0, the Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer First Look, tons of Top Cow bookmarks, and lots more (while supplies last).

Fans are invited to join Marc Silvestri (Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia), Matt Hawkins (President of Top Cow) and Filip Sablik (Publisher of Top Cow) as they hit you with a hurricane of exciting news and announcements from comics, film, television, anime, and much more! Joining them will be Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Berserker), Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible), along with a multitude of media and comic special guests! Don’t miss major announcements regarding the Witchblade feature film, The Magdalena feature film, and The Darkness video game! The panel will be featured in room 7AB from 4:30pm–5:30pm under the title, Top Cow: Comics & Multi-Media, on Saturday, July 25th.  Fans wanting to get in on the Berserker signing with Milo Ventimiglia, Russ Cundiff, and Rick Loverd will need to attend the Top Cow panel in order to secure a free ticket. The signing will take place at the Top Cow booth immediately following the panel.

Top Cow has an exciting and varied list of creators signing which include fan favorites like Marc Silvestri, Ron Marz (Witchblade), Phil Hester (The Darkness), Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade), Michael Broussard (The Darkness), and Eric Basaldua (Witchblade Annual).

Alongside these comic variant covers, the Top Cow Booth (#2629) will be selling Comic-Con exclusives of The Top Cow Bible softcover and The Art of Top Cow hard cover (books premiering at the San Diego Comic-Con Top Cow Booth). Top Cow will also debut a special First Look issue for a new series entitled Tracker, produced in conjunction with Heroes and Villains Entertainment.

Fans should note that because of anticipated crowding issues; artists appearing at the Top Cow booth will only be able to do a limited amount of free sketches per sitting. Sketch tickets will be available at the beginning of each day of the show. Sketch tickets are limited one per fan per day. Fans must be present at the appointed signing time to redeem their sketch ticket. Not all artists appearing at the Top Cow booth will offer free sketches and fans should inquire at the booth on the morning they plan to get a sketch for availability.
