Top Cow Pilot Season 2008: TWILIGHT GUARDIAN #1

Twilight Guardian #1TWILIGHT GUARDIAN is the first of Top Cow’s 2008 Pilot Season one-shot comics. Two out of these 6 one-shots will be fan selected towards becoming an ongoing series.

Twilight Guardian is the story of a teenage girl that goes out every night patrolling her local neighborhood from crime. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, no actual crime actually appears to occur for her, but every night she knows she becomes more prepared and closer to the time when she may need to become a hero!

I really liked this comic. The pace of the storytelling is great, and Troy Hickman’s script genuinely interesting. Art by Reza really bounces off each page, and I loved the faux retro comic book pages.

The comic actually has a quirky Vertigo vibe about it; which is good from my point of view, but is not the traditional kind of comic that has usually come from Top Cow. Time will tell whether fans and publisher alike believe Twilight Guardian can fit within their publishing universe.

There are still the five other “pilot season” comics to be released by Top Cow, but I can confidently state that this will be one of the two I will be supporting and voting for!

8 out of 10.

  1. Thanks so much for the review! I greatly appreciate it. And yeah, it’s not what a lot of folks would consider a “typical” Top Cow comic (but then, none of the Pilot Season 2008 books are, really). Much like my Common Grounds series, though, it takes place outside the TC universe.

    Anyway, thanks again, and lets cross our fingers (and ready our voting hands) that the Twilight Guardian saga continues!
