Arriving in stores this week are brand new issues of The Darkness: Lodbrok’s Hand, and Witchblade #122.  Top Cow Entertainment has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of both issues that hit the comic shops on December 10, 2008.

The Darkness: Lodbrok’s Hand
(W) Phil Hester     (A) Michael Avon Oeming     (Cov) Michael Avon Oeming, Massimo Carnevale

The unique stylings of superstar artist Michael Avon Oeming (POWERS, MICE TEMPLAR) are a perfect match for a Darkness and Vikings tale by current series writer Phil Hester!

In a barbaric age lost to history, mad kings sacrifice their subjects to strange gods, dragons fill the sky, witches weave their spells, warriors wade through bloodstained snow, and still The Darkness reigns. LODBROK’S HAND is Viking mayhem on an epic scale with an intense twist only The Darkness can provide!

Features a jaw-dropping variant cover by Massimo Carnevale (NORTHLANDERS, Y: THE LAST MAN)!

Cover A – Michael Avon Oeming
Cover B – Massimo Carnevale

Witchblade #122
(W) Ron Marz        (A) Stjepan Sejic       (Cov) Stjepan Sejic

Sara Pezzini is drawn deeper into Brooklyn’s Ultra Orthodox Jewish enclave, where an unspeakable evil has been unleashed and is slaughtering members of the community. Neither Sara’s detective training, nor the power of the Witchblade, have prepared her for what she’s about to face. Making matters worse, the crimes have attracted the attention of a newspaper reporter who is beginning to piece together the truth about Sara and the Witchblade.
