Jackie Estacado (current bearer of The Darkness) has assembled a team to fight for revenge against the Sovereign. However, their ongoing mission has been interrupted by a team of Hunter-Killers who are under orders to take Jackie dead or alive. Unfortunately for the team of Hunter-Killers, they’re only the B Team and quite frankly don’t stand a chance against Jackie.
This issue gave Jackie a chance to further develop his skills and abilities as the power of The Darkness itself is limited only by light and a lack of imagination. Beyond that he’s learning that he can literally do just about anything. This was also the first issue in a while that featured Jackie and didn’t involve much of his Sovereign hunting team.
Overall this was a very strong issue leaving me wanting more.
