Top Cow/Marvel Crossover Fusion #1 Lands in Stores in May

Jay Cochran - March 26, 2009
Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that the characters from their popular titles Hunter-Killer and Cyberforce will team up against The Mighty Avengers and Thunderbolts from Marvel Comics, in Fusion, a three part crossover mini-series with the first issue to debut in May 2009.

As a summer crossover event, Fusion represents an apex in the continuation of an ongoing packaging agreement between Top Cow Productions and Marvel Comics that began in 2006. The agreement between the two companies produced a number of great stories such as The Darkness/Wolverine, Cyberforce/X-Men, Witchblade/Punisher as well as a Magdalena/ Daredevil match-up.

“The crossovers with Marvel characters have been the most fun part of deal with Marvel,” commented Top Cow Publisher, Filip Sablik, “We wanted to go out with a bang and telling a multi-part story involving four of the biggest teams from both companies seemed like a natural.”

The writing team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova) will script Fusion, which begins when the Mighty Avengers and Cyberforce are together when Cyberforce’s own teammate, Ripclaw, appears in a small Northeast town in an uncontrollable rage.

“We're really excited about the opportunity to bring the Top Cow and Marvel Universes' mightiest teams together for the first time and weave the continuity of these two universes into a head-on collision of titanic proportions,” added co-writers Abnett and Lanning. “We've had a blast writing these classic characters both old and new and hope readers enjoy the ride. We think you will be blown away with Tyler Kirkham's amazing artwork!”

Fusion will be drawn by Top Cow artist Tyler Kirkham (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Broken Trinity: Aftermath) and will feature covers by Marvel Young Guns Mike Choi and Sonia Oback (Uncanny X-Men, X-Force).

“I have always wanted to draw Ripclaw. I grew up with Cyberforce. Not to mention the chance to draw a nice lineup of big name Marvel Characters,” said artist Kirkham, “The great writing of Dan and Andy had me pumped up from the beginning!”

The conclusion to Fusion leads nicely into Top Cow’s Cyberforce/ Hunter-Killer, a new event series to be released by Top Cow in July 2009. Fusion will take place during the “Initiative” era of Marvel Comics continuity, prior to the events of Secret Invasion.
