IN STORES NOW: "Pilot Season: Seraph #1"

Chicago Bears Pro-Bowl linebacker and comics fan Lance Briggs teams up with Phil Hester to take a stab at making his own book...

Here's the Sales Pitch:

The angelic warrior now known only as Seraph was once a sinner. After living a life of selfishness and sin, personal tragedy drove him to kill himself. Plucked on his way to Hell by Heaven, the man was made Heaven’s soldier in an endless battle. Charged with fighting an ancient war, but bound by God’s law, can Seraph triumph over opponents not restricted in the same way and regain his faith in the process?
Creator LANCE BRIGGS (Chicago Bears) and writer PHIL HESTER (THE DARKNESS, Wonder Woman) are joined by artist JOSE LUIS (Justice League of America) deliver a story of personal loss and redemption wrapped in a rich supernatural mythos.

I saw something about this while watching Football over my Thanksgiving grub. I know comics nerds get nervous anytime one of the cool kids dips their toe in our swimming pool, but Briggs is a hardcore comics fan who hands out comics to inner city young'uns in his spare time... He's probably not gonna come in your D 'n' D meeting and steal your girl, he's cool. Well, your girl might choose him, but that's not his fault, is it?
Anyways, Briggs's favorite book, Top Cow's flagship The Darkness, lent their house style to Seraph so hopefully Briggs's fellow Top Cow's fans base will dig it. The concept and art has that dark nineties appeal to it. I would be gonzo for this if Hester was drawing it... as it is, I find his role as co-writer encouraging. I'll put my debit card on the counter to support it, and hopefully it will reward me with a good story and a new tortured (anti) hero to follow.
