Today Image Comics announced a one-shot title entitled The Darkness: Close Your Eyes from creators Ales Kot and Maro Oleksicki.

The book will take a look at the history of the Estacado family’s demonic legacy, set more than one hundred years in the past.

The title is expected in stores the first week of June.


Ales Kot (Zero, Wild Children) joins Maro Oleksicki (Judge DreddPredator, 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.
