One story will be written by Ron Marz, the current (awesome) writer of Witchblade and Broken Trinity. The other story will be written by up and coming writer, Bryan Edward Hill. Jorge Lucas (The Darkness, Pilot Season: Ripclaw) and Tyler Kirkham (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Darkness/Wolverin) will be drawing the issue. There will be two variant covers, one by Tyler Kirkham and Stjepan Sejic and the other by Ryan Sook.
“Continuing the work that Ron Marz started with Broken Trinity is an honor, and the freedom that Top Cow gave me for Broken Trinity: Aftermath is just more evidence that Top Cow continues to support creativity, push the envelope and put quality first,” explained Bryan Edward Hill.
The two stories will explore how the two new artifact bearers will cope with their new power and responsibility. Irish thug, Michael Finnegan, who was introduced when he was hired by Darkness wielder Jackie Estacado in Broken Trinity, comes to terms with his new powers as the wielder of the Glacier Stone. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, Glorianna Silver must embrace the power of the Ember Stone to survive after her banishment at the hands of The Angelus.
“Look, it's got a guy who turns into a frost giant, a lady who turns into a fire-breathing dragon, plus Jackie Estacado being his usual bad-ass self,” Ron Marz quipped, “Short of gorillas riding dinosaurs, what could be cooler than that?”
According to the Girls Entertainment Network, “By the end of Broken Trinity a whole new lore has been added to the Top Cow universe.” Broken Trinity: Aftermath aims to satisfy the fan who has, up to this point, only been teased by what the ramifications of the Broken Trinity series mean to Top Cow’s core comic book titles, Witchblade and The Darkness.
