Join MTV Comics Executive Editor Tom Akel for MTV Presents: Creator Pitch LIVE!, a live pitch competition between three of the top creators in the business, including Image co-founder/Top Cow CEO and co-creator of "Witchblade" and "The Darkness," Marc Silvestri, co-creator of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and owner/editor/publisher of "Heavy Metal," Kevin Eastman, and Eisner Award-winning creator of the all-ages hit "Mouse Guard," David Petersen. Just three weeks prior to Comic-Con, the creators will each be given the same topic, something that's been a hot button issue to the industry from the past year, from which they will draw their inspiration to develop a new comic series. Creators have 10 minutes to present their pitch to the fans, there will be time for questions, and then put it to a vote that's determined by the fans.
