The Darkness Mini-Signing Tour Announced!

New Trailer Released on YouTube, New Mini-Site Live!

To coincide with the release of The Darkness #1, Top Cow is pleased to announce a series of exciting signings with creators Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Superman Confidential) and Michael Broussard (Unholy Union). The creators will be signing at several locations in California and the Midwest to commemorate the release of The Darkness #1 on December 12th.

The Darkness #1 marks the return of one of Top Cow's flagship characters to his own ongoing series and major changes in the status quo of the character. Jackie Estacado, the eponymous lead character, has fled the United States following the events of First Born and has set himself up as kingpin in Sierra Muñoz. The story promises to deliver unexpected twists and turns for die hard and new fans alike. To coincide with the release of the first issue, Top Cow has released a brand new trailer on YouTube by Fith Studios which can be viewed at:
