â€œJust like we did when Ron Marz first took over writing Witchblade, we want to reward longtime readers of The Darkness and at the same time entice new readers to come and check out Phil Hesterâ€™s storytelling, and you just canâ€™t beat $4.99 for six, full-color quality issues of a comic series,â€ proclaimed Top Cow VP Marketing and Sales Mel Caylo in a prepared statement.
The Darkness: Accursed Vol. 1 will contain the initial storyline by current series writer Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Firebreather) and artist Michael Broussard (Unholy Union). The six-issue story, entitled â€œEmpire,â€ kicks off the third and most current volume of The Darkness, which Hester took over writing in December 2007. It is an ideal jumping-on point for readers interested in discovering the modern Darkness series. The collection will also contain a cover gallery featuring pieces by Dale Keown and Stjepan Sejic.
The Darkness: Accursed volume 1 arrives in November.
