Top Cow Productions, Inc. will release "The Art of Top Cow", a 320 page hard cover coffee table book, July 2009, celebrating the artwork of Top Cow CEO/founder Marc Silvestri and alumni of the Top Cow Artist 'Pit'.

Top Cow is noted as the home of the "Witchblade" comic books, previously adapted as a Toronto-lensed episodic TV series and currently in development as a theatrical motion picture.

The feature film adaptation of their comic series [i]Wanted[/i] starred Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie.

Illustrations include those paintings from best-selling Top Cow Comics titles "The Darkness, "Witchblade" and "Cyberforce", by noted artists Michael Turner, Dave Finch, Joe Benitez, Eric Basaldua, Dale Keown and Stjepan Sejic.

“Marc Silvestri is one of the greats among comic artists and this volume will showcase that," said Filip Sablik, Top Cow Publisher.

"But the true impact Marc has had on the comic industry is in the legacy of the artists he has trained..."

"The Art of Top Cow" hard cover is presented in an oversized 10” x 12” hard cover with a two-sided dust jacket that folds out into a poster, featuring a new cover collaboration between Silvestri and Steve Firchow...
