Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that Pilot Season 2009 will continue with Pilot Season: Demonic #1.Â Hitting comic book stores December 16, 2009, Pilot Season: Demonic #1 is a 32-page glance into the creative minds of Image Comics partners Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible) and Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri (X-Men/Dark Avengers: Utopia, The Darkness).
Written by Kirkman and featuring art from Top Cow alumni Joe Benitez (Soulfire, The Darkness), Pilot Season: Demonic #1 centers on the story of Scott Graves and his inner demonâ€”only his demon manifests itself in his real life.Â Providing him strength, the demon is only satiated when Scott kills.Â In a conflicted Faustian bargain, Scott will continue to kill as long as the demon promises not to make him kill his wife and daughter.Â Stalking the night as Demonic, a vigilante known for savagely slaughtering the wicked, Scott must asks himself how long he can continue living this way and if the demon is in fact real.Â Pilot Season: Demonic #1 features a cover by co-creator Silvestri.
Pilot Season: Demonic #1 will carry the price of $2.99 as part of Top Cowâ€™s ongoing initiative to maintain their price point at $2.99 throughout 2009 for all of their regular comic books. A total of five new properties will be introduced in Pilot Season 2009 from co-creators Kirkman and Silvestri. Previously announced has been Pilot Season: Murderer in stores in October. A bargain priced issue titled Pilot Season: Declassified introduces readers to all five concepts for only one dollar.
