The Darkness #1-3: Raw Preview

The Darkness #1-3 Raw Edition
(W) Phil Hester (A) Michael Broussard (Cov) Michael Broussard

Now you can see The Darkness in a whole new light in this pristine, black-and-white presentation of artist Michael Broussard’s pencil work. No inking, no coloring. Broussard’s work is laid bare in this unique collection of the first three issues of this new volume.

Jackie Estacado, the current wielder of The Darkness power, joins forces with a brilliant scientist, who teaches the former Mob boss how to turn his curse into a blessing. Together, the duo overthrow a small South American country and turn its people into addicts of Nightfall, a synthetic drug made from The Darkness. But what Jackie doesn’t know is that the professor has a sinister, ulterior motive that will turn The Darkness powers against him, and he’ll be lucky if he gets out of this alive!

Even if you’ve read these issues before you’ll appreciate how Broussard, under Marc Silvestri’s guidance, has matured into a talented penciler in his own right.
