“To be polite, it was kind of an F-You to the status quo,” Silvestri says in the 2-part video. “The status-quo back then was: we literally created all these characters for the two biggest publishers — the pretty much 2 only publishers that mattered in comics back then, Marvel and DC. They had the biggest characters, they were the biggest gorillas, and you either worked with them or you didn’t work in comics.”
Now the highly-successful comics publisher of a number of high-profile titles like Witchblade and The Darkness, Top Cow has also seen their properties appear in everything from video games to TV shows and toys. Check out our studio tour below to learn about the inspiring story of Top Cow Publishing!
