The Darkness #101
NEW CREATIVE TEAM! BOLD NEW DIRECTION!
“THE CRACK IN EVERYTHING”, PART 1
Hot on the heels of THE DARKNESS II video game release, Top Cow proudly welcomes the new creative team of DAVID HINE (THE DARKNESS: FOUR HORSEMEN, THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN) and JEREMY HAUN (ARTIFACTS, BATTLE HYMN, Detective Comics)! On the surface, Jackie Estacado has everything he ever wanted – control of the Darkness, a successful career, and happy family life. Only his desire to make his life truly perfect will be his undoing.
It all comes down to this. The shocking outcome of a pivotal fight forces M.M.A. brawler Oren “Rooster” Redmond to reconsider his future inside – and outside – the cage. Don’t miss the conclusion to this violent tale from artist KEVIN MELLON (LOVESTRUCK) and writer BLAIR BUTLER (G4’s “Attack of the Show”).
