Top Cow Unveils Cyblade Cover by Rocafort

Cover to Cyblade #1 by Kenneth Rocafort


Have you read the Pilot Season issue of Cyblade?  It was my favorite of the bunch.  You can read my review, check out the preview or read an interview with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov about the pilot issue.  If this series is anything like the pilot issue, it'll be great.

This cover is amazong.

Madame Mirage artist Kenneth Rocafort tackles the Cyberforce beauty

Top Cow Productions Inc. unveiled today a second cover for the upcoming launch of the Cyblade solo series, drawn by renowned Madame Mirage artist Kenneth Rocafort. The series, written by Joshua Hale Fialkov (Elk’s Run, Pilot Season: Alibi) and drawn by Rick Mays (New Avengers), is scheduled to debut in October after becoming one of last year’s winners of Top Cow’s inaugural Pilot Season initiative.

Rocafort, a self-professed fan of Cyberforce, the superpowered team created by Marc Silvestri of which Cyblade is a member, was thrilled when he was offered this assignment.

“It is my dream someday to draw a Cyberforce series and hopefully I will get to do it,” he said from his home in Puerto Rico. “But something like this cover will do for now!”

The other cover to Cyblade #1 is drawn by interior artist Mays. Both will be available when the issue debuts in October.
