THE DECISION! It all comes down to this! The Survivor's plan has come to fruition. All thirteen Artifacts and their bearers are in their fated place. The stakes are simple - the very fate of the Top Cow Universe. And the only question that remains is, will either Jackie Estacado or Sara Pezzini doom the world as Tom Judge predicted? Legendary special guest artist DALE KEOWN (THE DARKNESS/PITT, Hulk) joins Top Cow Universe architect RON MARZ to bring fans an event conclusion they will never forget! PLUS: Each issue will also feature an Artifacts: Origin story written by RON MARZ and drawn by a guest superstar artist.

    The execution, though, is tremendous and trust me when I say you don't want to miss this. Whatever Marz has planned for the Artifacts ongoing, I will be on board for, but readers, you are in for something quite rare with this read. Read Full Review

    This issue changes everything. The Top Cow universe will never be the same. "Rebirth" begins here and it's done in a way that sets up the characters for new readers but there are clearly hints that older readers won't get ticked off. You can see subtle hints that this is something that will have repercussions in the months to come. Marz planted the seeds of the 13 Artifacts years ago and it's great to see it finally come together. Having Dale Keown join in to handle the art was a great treat as well. If you're a fan of Top Cow comics or thinking of taking advantage of the "Rebirth," you'll want to get this issue so you'll be prepared for the big changes. Read Full Review

    Artifacts has been one hell of a trip, proving that it's not gigantic fight scenes and multiple earths that make an event, but a focus on the characters of a shared universe struggling to not only overcome a great threat, but being able to stand one another long enough to do it. Artifacts has been an education in building a proper comic book event. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Andrenn Jan 9, 2012

    Artifacts #13 is not a badly written comic nor is it badly drawn. The characters are good and the dialogue is strong work from Marz. Keown also gets to do some good emotional work in the opening. With all of that said, there was clearly something here that could have been better or more worth your time. So it is not all bad. Read Full Review
