Press Release Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that the first issue of The Darkness/Pitt has sold out at the distributor level.Â The highly anticipated crossover series has been over five years in the making and was held back from release by Top Cow Productions until all principal work on the series had been completed.
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

Or – “For The First Time Ever, An Actual New Warrior Appears!” Hint: It ain’t Night Thrasher. But he does look all manly, and stuff, doesn’t he? Anyway, in recent years, comics have entered a phase wherein each individual issue is no longer treated as a singular entity. The old Jim Shooter storytelling method of explaining everything in each issue so casual readers won’t be lost has been thrown aside for a “write for the inevitable trade paperback” mentality. Nowhere has this “It’ll read better collected” mentality been so aptly illustrated than in the monthhly trainwreck called New Warriors. Will
