Today sees the US release of the collected edition of our Dynamite Entertainment/Top Cow crossover series The Darkness vs. Eva – Daughter of Dracula. It’s a series we’re both very proud of not least because the reactions of the Top Cow fans in particular were so positive when the single issues came out last year. We also had a great artist, Edgar Salazar, on the project who we really clicked with.
Here’s the official blurb:
Jackie Estacado is the current wielder of The Darkness – an ageless power dating back beyond human history – as well as a member of the Franchetti Family mob. Though he lives life on the wrong side of the law and can kill without remorse, Estacado has a strict set of morals and a fierce loyalty to those that earn it.
Born of the ultimate darkness, yet raised to fear and respect the light, Eva – the Daughter of Dracula – now finds herself trapped centuries from her own time. Destroying all of those with evil intent that cross her path, Eva marches towards the final battle with her father – Dracula, Lord of the Undead.
As his control over the Darkness teeters on collapse, Eva tracks the rogue Darklings fleeing Estacado’s control and confronts Jackie himself – but not before the two of them come to the attention of Count Von Orlok, who has his sights set on both the elimination of Eva, and control of the Darkness!
And here is a 13 page preview of the TPB:
