Death of The Darkness is Here


Every good thing must come to an end, even what that "thing" is The Darkness. Jackie Estacado has thrived on the darkness, using its rage to fuel his abilities. Despite his unique skillset, Jackie will quickly realize that altering reality to stop his world rotting from the inside out brings with it a rather serious consequence. David Hine and Stjepan Sejic are putting an end to Jackie Estacado in The Darkness: The Death of Jackie Estacado, a 128-page graphic novel releasing this November.

When Jackie chose to alter reality by resurrecting a past love, he provided a pathway for an older, more horrible evil than the Darkness to enter the world. As long as Jackie lives, that evil will strengthen its hold on the world. In order for everyone to live, Jackie Estacado must die, and Witchblade-bearer Sara Pezzini, whose own life was irrevocably altered by Jackie's choice, is his executioner.

The Darkness: The Death of Jackie Estacado will be released on 12/11 at $9.99 for 128 pages and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code SEP130525. Full press release below.

THE DEATH OF THE DARKNESS HAS ARRIVED
For a world to live, Jackie Estacado must die!

Jackie Estacado, bearer of the Darkness, saw a chance to alter reality and took it. The consequences of that decision played out in the pages of THE DARKNESS, as Jackie watched his world rot from the inside out while he was powerless to stop the corruption. 

Now, writer David Hine and artist Stjepan Sejic are putting an end to Jackie Estacado in this landmark event in the mythos of THE DARKNESS with the release of THE DARKNESS: THE DEATH OF JACKIE ESTACADO, a 128-page graphic novel releasing this November.

Recent praise for THE DARKNESS:

- Harrison Rawdin, Unleash the Fanboy

"[David Hine] understands horror and has used it to good effect throughout his run."
- Joe Edward Lewis, Geeks Unleashed

"The Darkness is becoming a favorite comic each month."
- Rob McMonigal, Newsarama
