Top Cow Productions on Tuesday announced its crossovers as part its packaging agreement with Marvel Comics.

The crossovers start in August with a Darkness/Wolverine one-shot, pairing Top Cow's supernatural mobster with Marvel's mutant warrior. Frank Tieri, who has written both The Darkness and Wolverine, handles scripting chores, while Tyler Kirkham, who's already drawn Amazing Spider-Man #530 and #531 as part of the packaging deal, handles art.

A Witchblade/Punisher one-shot is scheduled for December. Ongoing Witchblade writer Ron Marz will handle the script, with art by Mike Choi.

Kirkham and Choi will also contribute art to two Marvel Comics series, with announcements coming from Marvel and Top Cow at the Wizard World Philadelphia convention next week.

"This partnership with Top Cow is one that everyone here at Marvel is thrilled to be a part of," said Marvel publisher Dan Buckley. "The character interactions and artistic possibilities on the books opens up many new doors and all add up to one thing-better product for the fans."

"We're very excited about our business with Marvel, and the positive ripple effect it will have at home at Top Cow," said Top Cow president Matt Hawkins. "We're riding a great wave of new and building interest in a title like Witchblade, and relaunching old favorites such as Cyberforce. Putting our artists on the high-profile platform of some of Marvel's great characters will allow everyone to see just how great they are."
