Top Cow and Virgin Comics Announce First Crossover
Top Cow Productions and Virgin Comics today anounced the first-ever crossover comic book featuring the top female characters from both companies. Sara Pezzini, the main character of Top Cow’s Witchblade and wielder of the mystical weapon, will cross paths with Tara Mehta, the supernatural force created by the Gods in the Virgin series Devi.
“The crossover seemed like a perfect connection,” said Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik. “It was a natural fit to have the Witchblade and Devi meet each other. And to have writer Ron Marz at the helm for us was by far the logical choice.”
Virgin Comics Gotham Chopra was equally as enthusiastic about the new venture.
“Simply put, this was a no-brainer for us to do,” said Chopra, "Not only are we at Virgin huge fans of Witchblade, but the whole team behind it at Top Cow. I know our guys—Samit Basu and Mukesh Singh—are both going to bring their A game to make sure that Devi holds her own against Sara.”
Top Cow will publish part one of the story, called Witchblade/Devi #1, in April. Virgin Comics will then follow up with part two, called Devi/Witchblade #1, in May.
