    A lot of exciting comics coming out this month from Top Cow Productions, including four titles that are written by Ron Marz. Marz has really taken on a lot of storytelling weight in the Top Cow universe and thrived, developing a unified voice and plan where it was once scattered.

    Check out all of the solicits after the jump.

Bringing together writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and artist Kenneth Rocafort (Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer) for the first time. Featuring two covers by Rocafort and Chriscross (Captain Marvel).
