I just got an interesting mass mailing from a PR firm…
Top Cow (as you would already know them from Tomb Raider, Witchblade, Darkness, and the most recent – Wanted) has expressed an interest in working with you to do a story on what they and Marc Silvestri have been doing to revolutionize the trend of comics, books, video games, soundtracks, and feature films – all from the same story or writer within entertainment (an evolving story package). Marc is known for creating stories that evolve from a comic book to a feature film and video games to accompany. Others that follow Top Cow’s model is [sic] Fox Atomic, Virgin Comics, and a small handful of others, who are hoping to break into this concept circle.
I know they want to capitalize on having a feature film in production, but is “our comics get licensed” really fertile grounds for press coverage? Seems like a pretty obvious story, with not much to set it apart. And does Top Cow really think they’re being copied by these other companies, when it’s the most common idea out there today in the comic business?
Now you’ll know, if you see any stories with this slant, where it all came from.
