Top Cow's biggest event gets even bigger! While Witchblade bearer Sara Pezzini and Darkness host Jackie Estacado form an uneasy alliance to search for their missing daughter, more of the all-powerful Artifacts are brought into play as Magdalena, Tom Judge and the Angelus join forces. But unbeknownst to any of them, the unseen villain is manipulating people and events to bring about the end of the world. From Top Cow Universe architect Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and Top Cow superstar artist Michael Broussard (The Darkness) comes an event series, which will literally shake the Top Cow Universe to its foundation. Featuring a gorgeous cover by superstar artist Kalman Andrasofszky (Dazzler, R.E.B.E.L.S.) as well as a variant cover series featuring Tom Judge by John Tyler Christopher (Witchblade). Each issue will also feature a Top Cow Origin backup written by Marz and drawn by a superstar artist.

    This is another fantastic issue , and well worth buying for any fan of the Top Cow universe. Even if you're not a fan, it's not too late to pick up issues 1 and 2 and catch up"something I would highly encourage any fan of fantasy comics to do. Read Full Review

    I can't say it enough: Buy this comic. If the idea of it being an event put you off to it then I assure you its better than anything Marvel or DC could ever hope to put out. It's got the great characters that make up any great storyline and it's got a huge building plot that's sure to please. Artifacts is still building up but the journey as it builds up is an excellent read that no one should miss out on. Read Full Review

    I've read the first four issues of Artifacts so far. The only problem I had with the book was that I didn't know the characters well enough which is, of course, my fault and not Top Cow's. If you've enjoyed what's come so far you should give this a shot, it's shaping up to be a massive event" Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2010

    Artifacts #3 is a weird beast. In some ways, the flurry of character introductions puts you in information overload, but on the flipside, the lack of story movement makes you wish there were more meat in the issue. This draws and interesting parallel with the absurd number of artists who touch this issue, but don't seem to touch it enough. I'm intrigued by where the story is going and I want to know more about the characters we are introduced to here, but I need something more than what we are getting here. This issue is on the right track, it's just not going anywhere yet. Read Full Review
