Jackie Estacado, the current bearer of The Darkness, was blackmailed and
lied to by a devil who calls himself The Sovereign. Now free from The
Sovereign's grip, Jackie has assembled a motley crew of criminals with one goal
- destroy every last one of The Sovereign's reliquaries! His quest will
pit him against a former Russian mob boss turned art collector, a mute mystic,
countless of The Sovereign's statues, and even traitors within his midst!
Collecting The Darkness #85-89, this volume concludes the second year
of writer Phil Hester's (Firebreather, Wonder Woman) epic run with
Estacado confronting The Sovereign. Featuring art by Sheldon Mitchell (Pilot
Season: Stealth) and Romano Molenaar, and a special stand-alone "Tale of The
Darkness" issue set in the Wild West by Joshua Hale Fialkov (Tumor,
Echoes) and Matt Timson (Impaler, Popgun).
