Following the issues before it, the third issue from Top Cow’s limited event series that ties in the publisher’s entire Universe, ARTIFACTS, heads back to the printers for a second printing after a distribution-level sellout. The second printing of ARTIFACTS #3 will be out in stores the same day as ARTIFACTS #4 for readers who couldn’t get their hands on the issue in time.
“Three issues, four sold out issues! I couldn’t be prouder of the amazing work Ron Marz, Michael Broussard, Rick Basaldua, Sunny Gho, and the rest of the Artifacts team are doing on our biggest event to date,” said Top Cow publisher Filip Sablik. “And a big thanks to all of the retailers and fans who are supporting the series. It only gets better from here!”
The first chapter of Top Cow’s biggest event-to-date from Top Cow Universe architect Ron Marz (WITCHBLADE) and Top Cow superstar artist Michael Broussard (THE DARKNESS) concludes with ARTIFACTS #4. Artifact bearers from around the globe including Sara Pezzini, bearer of the Witchblade; Jackie Estacado, bearer of The Darkness, Dani Baptiste, bearer of the Angelus; the Magdalena, bearer of the Spear of Destiny; Tom Judge, bearer of the Rapture; and many others have found themselves pulled into an ancient struggle ignited by the kidnapping of Hope Pezzini. The fourth issue will reveal the architect of this fateful orchestration.
” Separately, thirteen mystical artifacts guide the fate of the Universe. Together, thirteen Artifacts will end the Universe. When a mysterious antagonist kidnaps, Hope, the daughter of Sara Pezzini and Jackie Estacado, Armageddon is put into motion. Artifacts brings together a number of plot threads from all over the Top Cow Universe the past few years.
