Seven Holes for Air is a heartbreaking story of a stoic man coming to terms with his coming death at the hands of cancer. It looks at how we perceive ourselves, how our past influences our present day behavior, and what truly makes a man.

Bob has had a headache for months but refuses to go to the doctor. He is too busy working on a new building where the foreman and company owner are behaving shady and is wanting to build a shed for his daughter to store her things when she comes home from college. After his wife Lisa schedules an appointment and conveniences her brother-in-law to take him, he soon finds out he has cancer. Trying to handle the treatment, his job and his home responsibilities, is leading him to fantasize about an alternate life where he is a farmer out in the west in the time of the railroad being built. There, his past, present, and work all meld together to let him play out both what is happening along with what he wishes would happen.

Bushido #5 preview banner

Today we present you with the last of our exclusive previews for Top Cow’s Bushido by Rob Levin and Jessada Sutthi, as the series wraps up with issue #5 on sale October 30, 2013.

There’s not too much I can say about this last installment. We’ve been following Kichiro through four issues of vampire action. It’s high-time for him to lead the charge and eliminate the monsters who have killed his family and kidnapped his girlfriend. It’s time for him to take his revenge and wipe out the scourge of vampires once and for all.

Once again, thanks to our friends over at Top Cow for letting us premiere these exclusive preview pages of Bushido, for what has been a fun series. I hope they’ve gotten you interested enough in the series to give it more than just a look. I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear from Levin or Sutthi… but I’m not so sure about Kichiro.

I hope that all you fine readers have been enjoying our exclusive previews for the Top Cow 5-issue mini-series, Bushido by Rob Levin and Jessada Sutthi. I’ve certainly been enjoying the series so far, with its mix of Japanese culture and the scourge of vampires. Now, it’s time to take a look at the penultimate issue in the series.

So far our hero, Kichiro, has lost his adopted father and been mistakenly arrested for murder while his adopted brother is set to marry Kichiro’s love. Now, Kichiro has lost his brother to the vampire curse, and it is time for him to step up and save the nation and possibly the whole world, but especially the woman he loves.

We’re happy to present this exclusive preview of Bushido, and you’d better believe we’ve got one more preview in store for you next week. Enjoy!

Netherworld CoverNetherworld
Written by Bryan Edward Hill and Rob Levin
Line Art by Tony Shasteen with Dennis Calero
Colors by Dave McCaig with Lee Loughridge
Letters by Troy Peteri
Image Comics | Top Cow
Release Date: May 23, 2012
Cover Price: $19.99

Crime noir comics are not usually my cup of Joe. It takes a unique twist on the hardboiled genre to capture my ridiculously short attention span. Image Comics/Top Cow’s Netherworld accomplishes just that, adding a supernatural flair to the typical dirty cop storyline. You’ll ponder this deceptively deep storyline well after its exciting conclusion.

Ray Parker is a former cop scratching out an existence as a bounty hunter. Two separate clients hit him up with jobs concerning the same person: a young woman named Madeline. Alexis wants Ray to find Madeline at a specified location and bring her to a second location. On the other hand, Cyrus Kane has less information and wants Ray to simply find Madeline’s whereabouts. Ray must use all of his instincts to decide on which path to take. Finding Madeline begins a violent, action-packed tale of discovery as Ray peels away the layers of his city and his role within it.

Top Cow Brings Noir Goodness With ‘Netherworld’

NetherworldTop Cow is adding a new miniseries to its roster of offbeat stories starting April 13, 2011 with Netherworld, from writers Bryan Edward Hill and Rob Levin, as well as illustrator Tony Shasteen and colorist JD Mettler.

Netherworld tells the story of one long night in a city following private detective Ray Parker as he searches for an 18-year-old girl named Madeline. The story promises to be dark and feature deep, layered characters. The city itself is seedy and full of criminals, and other unsavory types. If there’s good in this city we aren’t likely to see much of it along Parker’s path.

The writers take great inspiration from Frank Miller’s Sin City. While that world was the inspiration for the writers, Shasteen believes only Miller could create that particular city. He instead goes for something much more realistic and akin to films such as Se7en and Blade Runner. Shasteen’s references to Blade Runner meld well with his ideas for creating a city that is both familiar and foreign. He used images of densely populated Asian cities to help him craft the unique look of Netherworld. Shasteen also looked to Hollywood when designing the characters. Parker for example is based on a mix of Russell Crowe and Clive Owen while Avril Lavigne and Blake Lively inspire Madeline.

Broken Trinity Pandora's Box #1Broken Trinity: Pandora’s Box #1
Issue 1 of 6
Written by Rob Levin and Bryan Edward Hill

Cover Art by Tommy Lee Edwards
Top Cow
Price: $3.99; Release date: February 24, 2010

Marvel and DC have been getting most of the mainstream buzz over big event storylines like Blackest Night and Siege, but they aren’t the only game in town when it comes to crossover events. Top Cow has debuted several crossovers in recent years that have introduced major changes for their characters, and that trend looks like it will continue in 2010.

For those who haven’t been following Top Cow closely as of late, the trend began with a mini-series called First Born. That series saw the birth of a daughter to Sara Pezzini and Jackie Estacado, better known as Witchblade and The Darkness, respectively.

In 2008, First Born was followed up with a mini-series called Broken Trinity. This event established Witchblade, Darkness, and an angelic warrior known as Angelus as the three primary forces in Top Cow’s supernatural universe. Their individual weapons became known as artifacts and by the end of Broken Trinity we found out the three were not alone, and that a total of 13 artifacts existed in the world.
