Top Cow Launches Aphrodite V by Bryan Hill and Jeff Spokes in July

Posted by April 16, 2018 Comment

Top Cow and Image Comics are launching an Aphrodite V series this Summer, from writer Bryan Hill and artist Jeff Spokes. Hitting stores in July, Aphrodite V offers a simple and universal premise: “One machine wants to destroy the city. Another has come to save it. Only one will survive.” And according to Hill, the comic represents the much-vaunted “jumping-on point,” a magical time in a comic’s publication history during which a brief window exists for new readers to penetrate the dense continuity and insular nature of the comic book universe.

“This is a great way for people unfamiliar with this side of the Top Cow universe to jump into a story about the intersection of technology, humanity, and justice,” said Hill in the press release. Here’s the synopsis of the story:

In the near future, Los Angeles is a city on the brink of evolution, struggling with a new wave of terror fueled by black-market technology. Enter Aphrodite V: a fugitive from her masters, seeking individuality and purpose. She is the bleeding edge of biomechanics, and L.A.’s best hope against a new enemy—one that seeks to become a god among machines.

Aphrodite V #1 hits stores on July 18th, and final order cutoff is June 25th.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
