Image announce new Aphrodite series "Aphrodite V"
Top Cow comics, which spun out of Image in the mid-90s, was one of the darlings of the creator-owned comics boom. In addition to popular titles like Witchblade and The Darkness, Top Cow also published the first Tomb Raider comics along with cyberpunk series Aphrodite IX. While the latter book has only seen sporadic publication over the years, it remains one of Top Cow's most popular offerings.
Today, Image Comics have revealed the next chapter in the Aphrodite saga: Aphrodite V. Written by Bryan Hill and illustrated by Jeff Spokes, the series will focus on the android Aphrodite V as she tries to escape her masters.
APHRODITE V—A NEW ENTRY IN THE APHRODITE MYTHOS—ARRIVES THIS JULY
PORTLAND, OR, 04/16/2018 — Writer Bryan Hill (POSTAL, BONEHEAD) and artist Jeff Spokes will launch APHRODITE V this July from Image/Top Cow.
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.
“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.
One machine wants to destroy the city. Another has come to save it. Only one will survive.
Aphrodite V #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on July 18.
