… and now, for my big secret …
MICHAEL AVON OEMING JOINS NELSON BLAKE ON FINAL TOP COW TALENT HUNT WINNER
Artifacts #35 is the last issue in Top Cow Productions 2012 Talent Hunt issues, and they’re making sure it goes out with a bang. Written by 2012 writing winner Hannibal Tabu (best known for his biting and relentless column The Buy Pile at Comic Book Resources), the book already had a cover from Nelson Blake 2 (Artifacts, Magdelena) and now Eisner and Eagle-Award winning artist Michael Avon Oeming (Powers, Bulletproof Monk) will be providing interior art.
“I am still floored by the idea that two artists of this caliber are bringing my words to life,” Tabu said. “I knew it was hard, with no Talent Hunt-winning arists left for me, but this, wow, this is the dream coming true!”
Artifacts #35 follows Irish gunrunner and lovable scoundrel Michael Finnegan as he navigates through a world of zealots, mercenaries and dangerous curves. The issue is slated to land on retail shelves February 26 from Top Cow Productions, an Image Comics imprint.

That’s the thing I can tell you. I’ve been sitting on it for a while. Michael freaking Avon Oeming sitting with my script somewhere, just … wow.
However, there’s so much I can’t tell you yet. So many cool things … well … I can tell you some things, I suppose. Quinn McGowan. Project: Wildfire …
Okay … we’ll have more to discuss as time goes on. Yes, I’ll address Watson & Holmes in due time. Feel free to chat up the wonder of myself and Mr. Oeming, because that’s awesome.
