Angelus looks the coolest, but I'm giving them all a try.
 
Where is everybody?

All of them look like they could be good, so I'll be reading all of them. I'm not sure if there's one I'm more interested in then any other.

I saw some preview pages for the Ripclaw book, Jorge's pencils remind me a lot of Scott Kolins. All of these look fantastic, but I ponder why they didn't use some more of the male heroes, and I know Top Cow is known for its fantastic female heroes but it has a lot of strong male ones as well (Darkness, Ripclaw, etc...)

I'll read all of these, and vote for the one I think is best which will be hard considering all the talent we have doing these books.

Well Ripclaw is a part of the Pilot Season and Darkness is already slated to get a new ongoing series written by Phil Hester.

Yeah I know that Brian, I was just pointing out two of Top cow's most prominent Male heroes. I guess I should've included some of the other members of Cyberforce or Strykeforce.

Gotcha. So what are some of the other male Top Cow characters that you think can support a solo project?

Wow...I've been out of the top cow thing for a long while, I've decided to come back on but wow...they've killed off a lot of the characters I thought would make good books, so you got me Brian. But the Scarlet Knight (I'm not completly sure if thats creator owned, or if they are aloud to do something without the creators of the Freshmen) it would just be such a funny book, he's so over the top, I haven't caught up with the recent Freshmen but in the original one he was so over the top and wild and such a fanboy.

Velocity drawn by Kevin Maguire! Oh yes, I'm there for that. Actually it could be anyone by Maguire and I'd be there.

Yeah I've more or less been away from Top Cow since its first run of books, not that I was ever really into it. Outside of early CYBERFORCE and CODENAME: STRYKEFORCE, I wouldn't really be able to suggest anyone myself.

Seems to me, though, that books connected to the Witchblade/Darkness mythos probably stand the best chance of success.

So the release of the Ripclaw Pilot didn't garner it any additional votes in the poll?

I just realized that Ripclaw was the only male character that's part of the Pilor Season. For some reason I thought/assumed Angelus or Necromancer were male characters. I agree there could have been another male option.

Whoops. Totally forgot to promote the poll one more time before it ended, looks like I'll be getting Velocity: Pilot Season. Thanks to all that voted!
