Quite possibly one of the absolute best campaigns going in comics this year was Top Cow Comics fantastic “PILOT SEASON” series from “THE WALKING DEAD” scribe Robert Kirkman. Although the books have been plagued with release date issues the series itself was still able to release some of the single best one-shot titles we have seen in years (See “MURDERER”/”DEMONIC”). Well this October the publisher has announced that they are coming back with more “PILOT SEASON”, but without Kirkman’s involvement. The first of the new one-shots is ’7 DAYS IN HELL’ (pictured below) which is written by Bryan Edward Hill and Rob Levin. No word on if each of these ‘one-shots’ will be written by the line-up of Hill/Levin or if the company will be using a new writing team for each issue. You may be asking yourself “What happened to the other issues of ‘PILOT SEASON’ that Kirkman was supposed to be doing?”. Well, to answer that question “HARDCORE” is still slated to be released, although it was pushed back from its original release date.Below you can get all the details on the issue that goes on sale October 20th.
WRITTEN BY: Bryan Edward Hill and Rob Levin

“Ex-pat turned mercenary John Bishop is mortally wounded, but spared from Hell by a renegade demon seeking redemption. The price of John’s salvation? He’s reborn as the demon’s personal assassin and charged with ridding humanity of our worst criminals, sadists, and murderers…with a seven-day deadline for each kill.
Redemption can take a lifetime. John Bishop only has 7 days.”
