Image and Top Cow are releasing special one-shot issue, “The Darkness: Close Your Eyes”, that explores Jackie Estacado’s past. The issue is coming at your from Ales Kot and Maro Oleksicki and brings you a hundred years back in time to examine the Estacado’s ancestors, also plagued by The Darkness. Look for the one-shot in shops this June.

From the press release:

Ales Kot (ZERO, WILD CHILDREN) joins Maro Oleksicki (Judge Dredd, Predator, Books of Magick) to deliver THE DARKNESS: CLOSE YOUR EYES. Readers of THE DARKNESS, WITCHBLADE, and ARTIFACTS will enjoy this special glimpse into Estacado’s past, which will be released by Top Cow this June.

Los Angeles more than a hundred years ago: a different place, yet the sun still burns and the oilfields still flow.

“This is a story no-one told before,” said Kot. “This is a missing piece of the puzzle that is the Darkness.”

This is a story of another Estacado. This is a story of love. This is a story of death. Perfect for readers interested in jumping onto the long-running series or curious about the Top Cow Universe, THE DARKNESS: CLOSE YOUR EYES provides the perfect sampler.

THE DARKNESS: CLOSE YOUR EYES (ONE-SHOT), arrives in stores on 6/4, and will be available for $3.99.

THE DARKNESS: CLOSE YOUR EYES (ONE-SHOT) can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code APR140500.
