    Overall this was a very strong issue leaving me wanting more. It was one of the best one-shot stories that I’ve read in quite a while. It was also a great change-of-pace to see Jackie solo while trying out some new abilities. Since the beginning of Top Cow’s Darkness stories, Jackie’s abilities have usually involved his darklings. As much as I love the little guys with filthy mouths, it was great to see something different. Read Full Review

    Hester is having a great run on The Darkness. In his hands the character is as good as hes ever been. This is another great issue that builds upon the larger story that Hester is crafting. I say, buy it. Read Full Review

Its easy for new readers, has a solid done in one story and has absolutely amazing art. Definitely worth your time and should not be missed if you see it on the shelves. Read Full Review
