Top Cow has sent us a sneak peek at The Darkness: Level 1, which is scheduled to be in stores January 3, 2007. Level 1 gives readers a whole new look on the story of Jackie Estacado and the Darkness in this Top Cow Productions/2K Games crossover issue. There are four different covers in this sneak peek, so take the jump.
Here is how Top Cow describes the issue:
This special series, brought to you by The Darkness game/comic scribe Paul Jenkins and The Darkness co-creator David Wohl, will revisit the fateful day when Jackie Estacado became the Darkness, conveyed in an all-new way, and will have Jackie embark on a new adventure that will span dimensions and, for the first time, will show the INNER WORKINGS of the power that is called The Darkness…
I’m usually not one for this kind of cross promotion, because it usually ends up being a huge commercial for the product being pushed (in this case a video game). In this case, however, I really like the art and the story looks good too.
