Top Cow Productions has just announced a new and exciting forty-eight page one-shot featuring some of their hottest and most popular characters! Coming in December of 2009, Darkness/Darkchylde/Witchblade: Kingdom of Pain will feature several important and exciting features, not the least of which is the appearance of all three of these characters in one amazing book! Written by writer and artist Randy Queen with coloring by Sarah Queen, the book will feature the bearer of the Darkness, Jackie Estacado, with new armor and Ariel Chydle, the girl with the power to become creatures from her nightmares, at the crossroads of an important new beginning! Another big event for this issue is the fact that Queen becomes the first artist to draw Darkness since Marc Silvestri designed the character over ten years ago! We can't forget the other important part of this trio, bearer of the Witchblade herself, Sara Pezzini, who makes an appearance when the worlds of the other two characters intersect inside Chylde's nightmare world. The three must face a threat like no other, capable of creating anything it desires! That's not all, as an eight-page preview of Queen's latest project, the soon to be released sci-fi series Starfall. Top Cow has plenty of action and supernatural events to last you a good while, and this team-up is proof!
