Witchblade contest

The contest is pretty simple: you vote on your favorite Witchblade cover and if it matches mine, you get a prize! No, wait…that’s not the rule. Sorry, my bad. The real rules are that I will randomly pick two contestants, regardless of their choice of cover (mainly because all of the covers are awesome)! But additionally, one of the folks who votes for the most popular cover will get the third prize. So, pick your favorite cover out of the three dozen shown here below, and send us your vote via Twitter. Three awesome Witchblade prints signed by none other than Marc Silvestri are available, folks…so take a shot!

The future is inevitable.

Cyber Force, Vol. 2 picks up right where the first volume left off, as the heroes try to escape CDI (CyberData Industries) after a violent confrontation with CDI’s chairman. Just as one threat is extinguished, a new CDI created menace with a personal vendetta against Ripclaw emerges. As the team tries to elude their new, deadly foe — while doing their best to keep one of their own alive — the new chairwoman of CDI begins her nefarious plans for the creation of a new earth.

Think back to when you were a kid and saw The Dark Crystal, or read The Hobbit for the first time. Can you recall that thrill of adventure? Do you remember the electric buzz of excitement you got as these fantastical worlds filled your imagination? If you’re looking for a way to capture the pure joy of wild, magical adventures once again, get yourself a copy of Rise of the Magi #1.

Our story begins with a young Asa Stone, who leads a quiet life in the world of Rune, where everyone has magic powers. Even Asa, though his only ability is fixing magic carpets. Not quite the skill set needed for a life of high adventure.

Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

Summer is upon us! And if you’re like me, you’re no doubt spending time in the great outdoors, enjoying some fun in the sun: picnics, lemonade, playing beach volleyball while listening to Kenny Loggins and giving your shirtless friends elaborate high-fives…

Oh, who are we kidding? I’m inside, next to an air conditioner, waiting for my next trip to the comic book store. And later today when I arrive at my (hopefully air conditioned) destination, here are the top three comic books I plan on purchasing:

Cyber Force, Vol. 1Cyber Force, Vol. 1
Written by Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins
Illustrated by Khoi Pham
Inked by Sal Regla
Colored by Sunny Gho
Lettered by Troy Peteri
Covers by Marc Silvestri, Sunny Gho, Stjepan Sejic and Chris Giarrusso,
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: September 25, 2013
Cover Price: $9.99

In 2012, Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri teamed with writer Matt Hawkins to bring about an updated, re-imagined version of his cyber-enhanced super-team comic, Cyber Force. Celebrating twenty years since the series’ first launch, the creative team brought on illustrator Khoi Pham and began a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough funds to provide the first five issues completely free of charge! The first volume provides a great introduction of the characters and story for a Cyber Force newbie like myself.

Carin is the daughter of the chairman and chairwoman of the CDI — a powerful cybernetic research organization that has been the guiding light to the world for many years. When 16-year-old Carin discovers that her father plans to systematically annihilate the human species in order to start the world over, she goes in search Morgan Stryker — a genetically modified cyber-human whom she believes may be able to help prevent the devastating scenario from occurring. Taken in by a group of rogue SHOCS — cybernetic soldiers — who are now deemed terrorists by the CDI, Carin has little time to convince them of her father’s plans, gain their trust, and find the one man who can help them all.

First Look: Witchblade #179

Here at Geeks of Doom, we strive to provide our readers with the very best the comic world has to offer. And there’s not much that can top presenting to you this awesome Marc Silvestri cover for Witchblade #170. An interesting factoid is that it’s an homage to another cover that Silvestri did for Uncanny X-Men #251, all the way down to using the same color palette.

Check out the cover right here below.

Sara Pezzini, a tough former New York City Police Detective, is the current wielder of the artifact known as the Witchblade. Possessed by a single woman in every generation, this weapon helps to retain the balance between good and evil. Existing since the very beginning, it adapts to the user and the needs of the world. Sometimes seen as bracelet or a gauntlet, it is unrestrained by any physical limitations which gives the wearer amazing abilities and power.

Aphrodite IX #2Aphrodite IX #2
Written by Matt Hawkins
Illustrated by Stjepan Sejic
Colored by Stjepan Sejic
Lettered by Troy Peteri
Covers by Stjepan Sejic and Marc Silvestri
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: June 12, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Can you blame an assassin if she were literally created for such work and have no recollection of her actions afterwards? This is the moral conundrum issued in Top Cow’s Aphrodite IX #2. Written by Matt Hawkins with illustrations from Stjepan Sejic, we are thrust into the harsh, violent and dystopian future earth alongside Aphrodite as she tries to find her place in the new world.

The struggle continues between Marcus’ race of genetically altered humans and their cybernetic, humanoid enemies led by Executor Chronos. Unfortunately for Marcus and his people, their new ally, Aphrodite IX—the green-haired female powerhouse with no memory of her past—is in fact an assassin by design; and what Marcus and Aphrodite don’t realize is that she is being controlled by Chronos’ new ally and Aphrodite’s old handler, Robert J. Burch. Already unaware of killing Marcus’ father, the king, Aphrodite is on a new mission that could very well bring on the collapse of the kingdom.

Cyber Force #2Cyber Force #2
Written By Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins

Letters by Troy Peteri

Release Date: December 6, 2012
Cover Price: FREE

In the early ’90s, Cyber Force was one of those grim, X-Men derivatives that never quite pulled away from a packed genre. I owned the first issue back in the day, but never opened it. Probably because I thought I was rich. I’d forever ruin my fortunes if I ever smudged the cover with my grimy, mortal fingers. Twenty years later, I really have no clue what happened to that comic. Looking at the price guides, should I ever find it, I could possibly cash it in and for a foot-long sub and a soda.

Now that the get-rich-quick, collector phase of comics is merely a laughable side-note in history, many series born from that era are getting much deserved reboots. This past summer, Matt Hawkins conducted a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to resurrect and re-imagine Cyber Force. He also promised to release the first five-issue story arc for FREE. That’s zero dollars. $0! This innovative utilization of crowd-funding is a concept that every comic fan should embrace. It’s like a movie theater letting you sit in on the first 30 minutes of a movie before asking you to pay to see the rest.
