Top Cow has announced The Darkness/Darkchylde/Witchblade: Kingdom of Pain one-shot will be coming to comic shops in late December. For a look at the full cover, and the official press release, hit the jump.


LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 29, 2009 – Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that The Darkness/Darkchylde/Witchblade: Kingdom of Pain one-shot comic book will hit comic book store shelves late December 2009.

Written by fan-favorite writer and artist Randy Queen and colorist Sarah Queen, the 48-page The Darkness/Darkchylde/Witchblade: Kingdom of Pain standalone finds Jackie Estacado, the bearer of the Darkness, with new nightmarish armor, and Ariel Chylde, the girl who can become creatures from her nightmares, with a new beginning. In addition to creating Darkchylde, Queen has the distinction of being the first artist to draw The Darkness after Marc Silvestri designed the character over 10 years ago.

In the crossover, marking the first appearance of Darkchylde since 2002, Jackie intercepts a psychic plea for help and inhabits Ariel’s nightmares.  In doing so, he awakens her from a seven-year, self-imposed exile.  However, summoning his Darkness Armor in her Nightmare world, Jackie’s armor comes over corrupted and darker. With a guest appearance from Sara Pezzini, the bearer of the Witchblade, what happens when these monster makers encounter a new threat that can create anything?

Additionally, the one-shot comic will include a brand new original 8-page preview of Queen’s next epic series, Starfall. The sci-fi series was announced by Top Cow at Comic-Con International 2008 and has been hotly anticipated by Darkchylde and Top Cow fans alike.
