Top Cow will be running special promotions throughout Comic-Con including daily raffles, a different comic giveaway every day, and on Saturday from 1pm to 3pm, fans will have the opportunity to literally "Buy The Shirt Off The Top Cow Cowgirl".

Top Cow also announced a panel on Friday at 5:30pm in room 1AB, which will include special guests Seth Green and Hugh Sterbakov from Freshmen and Ron Marz and Stjepan Sejic of First Born join Marc Silvestri, Top Cow President Matt Hawkins, and Vice President of Editorial Rob Levin to discuss Top Cow's biggest events for 2007. The panel will also feature major announcements regarding Top Cow's merchandising plans, Witchblade, and other key Top Cow properties along with a surprise guest or two. And every attendee will have the opportunity to win a top secret grand prize and will receive a limited edition mini-lithograph just for coming to the panel. Top Cow will also be involved in The Darkness video game panel with Union and 2K on Saturday at 3pm in room 8. Also appearing throughout the convention for Top Cow will be Paul Jenkins promoting his work for Top Cow and along with partner Rob Prior promoting their film Tatua with free t-shirts, temporary tattoos, and other opportunities for fans to win fabulous prizes.

"I'm as prone to hyperbole as any other Marketing guy," said Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Filip Sablik, "But I think our signing list this year speaks for itself. We barely fit everyone on there!"
