Top Cow Productions is proud to announce the upcoming release of the collected The Darkness Levels limited series. The Darkness Levels consist of six self contained single issues, each of which parallel a level in The Darkness video game and add depth to The Darkness mythos established in the video game.
The Darkness Levels Trade Paperback captures the intensity and horror of the video game from 2K Games and Starbreeze, which had widespread release on June 25th on X-Box 360 and Playstation 3, while at the same time expanding The Darkness universe for both players of the video game and established fans of the comic. Each issue can be read individually or all six can be read to create an even deeper understanding of The Darkness. All six issues were co-written by Paul Jenkins (Civil War: Frontline, Wolverine: Origin) and The Darkness co-creator David Wohl (Witchblade, Aphrodite IX). Jenkins also wrote the video game script. Each issues features a different art team including Starbreeze concept artist Mattias Snygg and Top Cow regulars Stjepan Sejic (First Born, Witchblade), Eric Basaldua (Hunter-Killer, Aphrodite IX), Tyler Kirkham (New Avengers vs Transformers), and Mike Choi (X-23: Target X).
"The Darkness video game was hailed by the video game press for having a killer script and rightly so," stated Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Filip Sablik, "Paul and David along with all the phenomenal art teams took that story and really take it to new heights with the "Levels" stories, but somehow managed to make it accessible for a non-gamer."
The Darkness Levels Trade Paperback is a 176 page full color trade paperback with a suggested retail price of $14.99. Additional information regarding The Darkness can be found at www.topcow.com and www.thedarknessisrising.com.
