The third Volume in a series that gives readers - especially newcomers - a sufficient glimpse into the origins of a celebrated series is easily one of the highlights of The Darkness Origins collection. Great artistry and writing are a mainstay as usual, with our favorite villains - Sonatine - scheming as usual while new forces enter the fray, further complicating Jackie Estacado's difficult life. There's nary a disappointing moment.

As usual, carnage, horror, and graphic violence is intertwined w

Despite the weirdness caused by Volume 2, Volume 3 manages to create an interesting story between two antagonists which should pay well in Volume 4. Jackie is turned into an evil supernatural force and we are really shown that while he can still be a bloody murderer, that is while his humor just cannot disappear.

The Magdalena is a power passed down from mother to daughter since the time of Christ. The current one is tasked by cardinal Innocent to target the wielder of the Darkness.

The background here focuses on the world's decadence and the Church's attempt to cleanse it. Jackie makes some good points against the Church, though, when he mentions the Inquisition, that peopl ...more

La loca y divertida macarrada de Ennis y Silvestri es menos loca, menos divertida y bastante menos macarra cuando Ennis y Silvestri no están. Un cómic en la linea de lo que se publicaba en los 90 al que le salva el componente autoparódico.

En el siguiente tomo empieza la etapa de Scott Lodbell. TERROR.

Ennis began his comic-writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls. Appearing in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish 'Troubles'. It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast-based comedy featuring two supporting ch ...more
