MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A special signed edition of the “Berserker” comic will be distributed to comic-book retailers who sign up to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund through Diamond Comics.  The promotion was announced by Top Cow Publisher Filip Sablik at the ComicsPRO annual meeting of direct-market retailers.

The issue will be signed by Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes”) and the creative team.  Ventimiglia brought the project to Top Cow;  the team creating “Berserker” is made up of writer Rick Loverd (“Friday Night Lights”), artist Jeremy Haun (“The Leading Man”) and cover artist Dale Keown (“PITT”).

The preview issue of “Berserker” is available now; the first issue is set to ship in June.  Sablik said the violent series should appeal to fans of “Wanted.”   In the story, the two lead characters discover they have incredible strength when they become filled with rage.
