No Superheroes Here! Top Cow At ECCC 2017

The Top Cow panel was quick and easy featuring Production President Matt Hawkins. Hawkins gave fans a quick glance on upcoming series such as:

 

samaritan

aphroditev

genius

Out of all of them, Genius seems to be the most ambitious. From the Top Cow website:

"What if the greatest military mind of our generation was born to a people who are already supremely conditioned to wage war, who know nothing but violence since birth, and must continually adapt to new predators in order to survive? What if the second coming of Alexander the Great, of Genghis Khan, of Napoleon, of Patton…what if it was a teenaged girl from South Central, L.A. named Destiny? And what if she decides to secede three blocks of the 'Hood from the Union? Who is going to take it back from her and her army of gangbangers? Who CAN?"

Hawkins also gave us insight into Postal, which will be getting it's own TV show on Hulu next summer. The series will have a Twin Peaks vibe to it. In fictional Eden, Wyoming a group of criminals live in harmony until a murder interrupts their peaceful lives. If you want a more grown up Riverdale this is the series for you. Hawkins also made a point to say that Top Cow tends to stay away from superhero stories as the big two have that covered. He's more interested in sci-fi or fantasy, but won't say no to romance or any other story that catches his attention.
