Newsarama: May is Darkchylde Month with Top Cow & PopCultureShock
May is Darkchylde Month
Darkchylde Ent. proudly announces May as Darkchylde Month. With the triumphant release of the highly anticipated crossover with Top Cow's The Darkness, and her first ever statue release through Jerry Macaluso's PopCutureShock Collectibles, fans of Randy Queen's nightmare haunted beauty, Ariel Chylde, will be in for some happy surprises this May. Darkchylde excitement should hit a fever pitch when test footage for a Darkchylde film created by the Academy award winning Weta Workshop hits the net around the same time.
"The tale of a beautiful but cursed southern teen who can become any of the creatures from her many recurring nightmares was a bonafide late 90's, early 2000's sensation, seeing the character realized in comics, trading cards, action figures, skateboards, apparel, mini busts, and more", says creator and writer, Randy Queen, "and it is with great joy that all these exciting new elements are congealing at this time, with the Top Cow Crossover, the Statue from PopCultureShock Collectibles and the release of the Weta Test Footage. This is a concept fans have shown they love and there aren't many comic characters created post 1960's with any real staying power. I'm delighted the plight of Ariel Chylde has endured and proved so memorable for fans around the world and it'll be terrific to see where her wings carry her from here."
