Top Cow Productions, Inc. is running a Kickstarter for The Darkness Complete Collection Vol. 2 HC. For The Darkness fans, Top Cow is offering a premium hardcover edition with a Kickstarter Exclusive dust jacket signed by Marc Silvestri along with some other reward tiers, including art prints, T-shirts, and key chains.
The reward that’s most interesting is The Darkness #1/2 Kickstarter Exclusive Issue by original creator Marc Silvestri and artist Christopher Mitten. As part of Top Cow’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, they’re offering a brand-new story that centers around the return of Jackie Estacado, notably the most powerful host of the Darkness who first appeared in Witchblade #10.
Top Cow President/COO Matt Hawkins says
It’s rare for the original creator to have the opportunity to return and relaunch a character and concept he created twenty-five years later.
“Giving a character that is prone to following his darkest impulses almost unlimited power is scary,” adds Silvestri. “Making someone like this the hero and the only thing that stands between our survival and our destruction is terrifying. Jackie Estacado wields the power of The Darkness. He’s a dude with stories to tell and he’s coming back to tell them…with a vengeance.”
