"THE CRACK IN EVERYTHING", PART 4 We can tell you only two things about this issue: One, this issue will dive into depths of horror darker than any previous Darkness issue, and two, you won't see the end coming.
It's a great time to start reading THE DARKNESS. While we're four issues in, new readers can still get a handle on what's going on, especially with the first page giving a detailed summary of what's been going on. We are witnessing a train wreck about occur. Jackie had to destroy and rebuild the world but took the opportunity to make some adjustments to get what he wanted, specifically bringing his childhood sweetheart back from the dead. Messing with these sort of events must come with a price and we're slowly seeing Jackie's world crumbling around him. The clean slate that writer David Hine has been given allows him to do as he pleases with the characters and we have no idea what could or will happen to everyone. It's rare for a comic to make you a little uncomfortable in a way that you can't help but know something bad is going to happen. THE DARKNESS will easily suck you in each month as you wait to see what could possibly happen next. Read Full Review
Overall, if you're a fan of The Darkness you absolutely should be reading what Hine is doing. If you are not a fan but interested, I highly recommend you pick it up from the start. Hine is really making his mark on the character and building up Jackie's world just to make it all crumble around him. It is an excellent read that balances characters, violence and drama just right.
