Because no one’s making a big enough deal out of it …
Yeah … Dale Keown is the artist on Artifacts #13, which releases this September, probably not-so-coincidentally the same month Witchblade #150 releases, which is Ron Marz’s last issue on the title (sad Paul). Kinda shocked that this wasn’t released in USAToday or something … maybe the solicits came out early. Anyway, here’s the solicit copy on Artifacts #13:

It all comes down to this! The Survivor’s plan has come to fruition. All thirteen Artifacts and their bearers are in their fated place. The stakes are simple – the very fate of the Top Cow Universe. And the only question that remains is, will either Jackie Estacado or Sara Pezzini doom the world as Tom Judge predicted? Legendary special guest artist DALE KEOWN (THE DARKNESS/PITT, Hulk) joins Top Cow Universe architect RON MARZ to bring fans an event conclusion they will never forget!
PLUS: Each issue will also feature an Artifacts: Origin story written by RON MARZ and drawn by a guest superstar artist.
