DKv3000TPBCOVsf2.JPGFor those who have hesitated on picking up the new Darkness series, might have reason to make the jump as Top Cow announced the first trade of Darkness: Accursed will have a $4.99 price point.

“Just 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 Hester’s storytelling, and you just can’t beat $4.99 for six, full-color quality issues of a comic series,” 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 “Empire,” 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.

    Stephen: I think the reason why i am so annoyed is cause i’ve had to search the issues out cause they’ve shipped so sparodically and my regualr store isnt the best of remebering to hold them. Ive then had to go to the store a town over and it had consisently annoyed me. I see his point and i have no problem with him doing this. Its a bloody good idea, im just a bitter nerd.
