DC news -- and much more!!!


The Continuum has obtained a first look at the covers by Marc Silvestri and Pat Lee for Cyberforce/X-Men, a one-shot from Top Cow that will be released by Image Comics in November.

The book is by the Cyberforce team of writer Ron Marz and artist Lee.

As explained by Top Cow's Matt Hawkins at Wizard World Chicago, the book will feature Ripclaw and Cyblade from Cyberforce and Wolverine and Psylocke from the X-Men.

Hawkins said that at the time of Cyberforce's creation, some fans, including himself, thought that the Cyberforce characters were deriative of the X-Men. He said he challenged Marz to show how the most similar characters -- Ripclaw and Cyblade -- were different.
