Top Cow's "The Darkness #78" Advance Preview And Review

Babs gives us a sneak peak of the comic and shares her personal perspective on the issue prior to it's release!


 

Good old Top Cow! They gave me the opportunity of checking out their latest comic, "The Darkness #78," before it comes out in stores tomorrow! I'd say that's very sweet of them. I had all sorts of nice things to say about this issue, which is why I recommend that you pick it up. Are you looking forward to the issue? Have you been following this story?

Should I try Top Cow comics....time to ponder that question.

I've been wanting to start reading The Darkness for a while, and now I have an uncontrollable urge to spend more then I should tomorrow.

I haven't read the Darkness, but I really enjoyed the video game and its story. Perhaps I will check this out.

Also, ether my speakers really suck or you need to speak a bit louder Babs.

Phil Hester was great when he wrote Green Arrow. I might be wrong on this but I would like to see The Darkness in different attire. It seems like he (other than attitude) really hasn't change for a long time. Or is this the beginning of an overall change of this character.

I need to stop watching these reviews y'all keep on adding titles for me to buy.... :) I was a big fan of the Darkness when it first came out. I like Jackie almost more than the darkness itself. Jackie has been a douche bag for most of the series but it may be nice to see him change. I kinda fell out of it after the first born series because I couldn't get past the artwork. I may have to pick this up. Great review

Top Cow has dropped the ball, Darkness has been lame for the past 3 issues and Witchblade has been lame since they started their "war"

I personally enjoyed it a lot, I guess we just have different tastes in comic books! :)

The writing overshadowed the art work in this for me. Usually that's the first thing I talk about, but I found that the action was so well intertwined with the narrative, that everything just seemed to flow effortlessly, and I loved that. Don't get me wrong, the art work was incredible; but the writing made me just want to get to the next page.

I know! It's really easy for me to say "go out and get this" but I completely understand if things get to be too expensive. However, I really feel as though there is at least one Marvel title you can drop to pick this up. (If you read Marvel). I feel like this is so much better than half of the X-titles out right now.

@Babs:
Yeah I'm picking this issue up. I haven't paid too much attention to Marvel's X-titles. I agree they have been pretty bad. I'm reading pretty much all the "Diet" Batman titles though.
