It's been four years since Jackie Estacado and the Darkness appeared in his own series. The character created by Top Cow/Image founder Marc Silvestri along with Garth Ennis and David Wohl is the balance to the Angelus and one of the 13 artifacts that make up the Top Cow universe of characters. Others include the Witchblade, the Rapture carried by Tom Judge and the Spear of Destiny carried by the Magdalena. A few years back, Top Cow put these titles aside and focused on more science-fiction series like Aphrodite IX, Symmetry and Think Tank as well as more grounded series like Postal and the Tithe. We've seen Magdalena return recently and talk of a new Witchblade series… and now a teaser image posted by Matt Hawkins shows that the Darkness will be returning, as well.
In the tweet/post that shared the image, Hawkins says that he and Silvestri are working up a new take on the Darkness. Will it be Jackie Estacado or something completely different? And who will draw it? Hawkins is asking for fan input on who they should tap as the artist.
