Jackie Estacado, bearer of the Darkness, saw a chance to alter reality and took it. The consequences of that decision played out in the pages of THE DARKNESS, as Jackie watched his world rot from the inside out while he was powerless to stop the corruption.
One of the bigger announcement for the Top Cow panel was a Darkness film being made by New Regency, Mandeville and Sketch Film. Part of the announcement for this included the inclusion of Witchblade and Angelus. Marc Silvestri stated that despite starting with the Darkness, they always kept heading towards Witchblade. Because there should be a cop, Sara Pezzini, chasing the criminal Jackie Estacado around. The film is apparently further into development than most announcement made like this as well.
A new Darkness graphic novel is also to release this Novemenber, the David Keown cover is shown above.

The events of Top Cow’s vanguard titles have been building to the climactic confrontation in a universe-changing four-issue crossover event: “Progeny.” Jackie Estacado, wielder of the ancient power The Darkness, has remade the world according to his own wishes. His daughter with Witchblade bearer Sara Pezzini, Hope, sacrificed as a baby to save the universe from obliteration, is, in his new world, on the verge of adolescence, and Jackie’s high school girlfriend who had died tragically, Jenny, is her mother — and alive.
Jackie Estacado, crime boss and wielder of an ancient force called the Darkness, seemed to have his life under control. In the unfolding “Breaking Dark” story arc of Top Cow’s long-running series THE DARKNESS, Jackie has used the power endowed by the Darkness to remake the world according to his will. But this act has had disastrous consequences.
