INTRO

Hoooo-lee crap!

As I sit down to write this ever-loquacious yet somehow-scintillating copy, I am struck by one inescapable fact:

We must be doing something right.

V.I.C.E. #1 is sold out.

Necromancer #1 is sold out.

Both Freshmen #1 and #2 are sold out.

Heck, we've got Stephen Sadowski laying in for a couple issues on Witchblade.

And I don't know if you've been reading, but…City of Heroes really rocks bells. Dangerous Dan Jurgens has amped up the fear factor in that book and created a story that's so scary-good…it's scary.

As I sit down to write this ever-loquacious yet somehow-scintillating copy, I am also working on "The New Top Cow." Come spring/summer of 2006, we'll have yet MORE new titles, and an all-new look to our books. Yet I can't help but think…

…maybe the new Top Cow is NOW. The new stuff is clicking, thanks to you, the reader. Keep it up. You're making me damn happy with the sales and response we've been getting. We'll keep making you happy with bigger and better books yet.
