Dale Keown’s character, Pitt returns to comics in August as part of The Darkness/Pitt crossover event.Â The three-issue series will be written by Paul Jenkins with art by Keown.
The story behind The Darkness/Pitt follows Pitt and his human half-brother Tim on their mission to New York to track down those infected by an alien virus.Â But mob boss and current bearer of the mystical power of The Darkness, Jackie Estacado, doesnâ€™t permit anything to go down in his neighborhood unless he knows about it.Â When the two forces attract the unwanted attention of the Federal Government, mayhem ensues!
â€Darkness/Pitt has been a labor of love but it has been well worth it. As always, Iâ€™m excited to work with Dale on Jackie Estacado, a character weâ€™re so familiar with, and Iâ€™m gratified heâ€™s allowed me the opportunity to work with characters so near and dear to his heart in Pitt and Tim,â€ commented writer Jenkins in a prepared statement, â€œThe book looks as beautiful as I always hoped it would, and I trust fans will forgive me for bringing a voice to some of Daleâ€™s most beloved creations.â€
