SDCC: The Darkness/Darkchylde

Randy Queen is the creator/artist of one of the hottest series of the late Nineties, outselling some of the biggest titles in comics. Darkchylde was a series that revolved around a traumatized high school girl Ariel Chylde, who could become the creatures from her many Nightmares. A heart-breaking story that has spawned a surprisingly large female fan base, merchandising, many comics and a staggering 261 various covers (source).

Randy's last major news was at the San Diego Comicon 2008 in regards to his new property Starfall, partnering with Top Cow Entertainment. Starfall will be sollicited after it has been fully produced and will be finished to meet deadlines.

The big news from the San Diego Comicon 2009 is that Top Cow Entertainment and Darkchylde Entertainment will publish a The Darkness/Darkchylde 30 page one-shot, which features the return of Ariel Chylde. The crossover reveals a new visual take on The Darkness when his armor gets corrupted in Ariel's Nightmares. Randy will be writing and drawing, with his partner Sarah Queens providing colors.
