This Week in Comics – Week of February 26, 2012

Featured Release:  The Darkness #100


It may have been hard to miss the commercials recently for 2K’s new video game The Darkness II.  However, some fans of the game may not realize that it’s actually based on the long-running Top Cow comic of the same name.  And, with today’s issue, marks a major milestone – hitting Issue #100.

The comic, created in 1996 by Marc Silvestri, Garth Ennis, and David Wohl, focuses on the character of Jackie Estacado.  Jackie inherits a force older than time called – get this – The Darkness.  According to the comic, The Darkness existed before God created light…  And wasn’t too happy about being pushed aside.  The Darkness is passed from generation-to-generation granting the bearer devastating powers including command over a legion of demons.

Issue #100 will be an oversized issue, wrapping both the current story arc as well as the run of writer Phil Hester and artist Romano Molenaar.

The Darkness #100 arrives today!
