Official Press Release
Top Cow Productions, Inc. revealed the final colored cover for Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer #3 by Whilce Portacio, Joe Weems & Sunny Gho of IFS. As Cyberforce and Hunter-Killer team members rush to destroy key secret facilities around the world, Morningstar waits for them with a deadly welcoming party. The midpoint issue of the highly anticipated summer event promises to introduce new threats as well as delve deeper into the mystery of “The Jett.”
Mark Waid (Irredeemable, Amazing Spider-Man) and Kenneth Rocafort (Astonishing Tales, Madame Mirage) are working together to bring the most dynamic crossover possible. Fans can expect Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer #2 to arrive in comic book stores Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009, for the cover price of only $2.99. The issue will feature a cover by regular cover artist Kenneth Rocafort as well as Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade).
“Beyond the fact that they all just look cool together—they’re all really well-designed and visually interesting—they work really well together,” says Mark Waid, “because the Hunter-Killers are all about distrust of the government and Cyberforce is all about distrust of mega-corporations.”
