It’s hard to tell at this point if Jackie’s restructuring of the world will have more bearing on how the Darkness passes on to his child or bringing the dead back to life, either way it’s nail biting in a way that’s usually reserved for television dramas like Breaking Bad... If you’re reading this because you want to know if this new direction is working for the book then your answer is yes, it’s better than it’s ever been. If you are reading this because you’ve never read the Darkness and are wondering if this longstanding character is something you’ve been missing then I urge you to wikipedia his powers and jump right in as it’s one of the most addicting books out there

Make no mistake about it folks, issue #104 is dark. Yeah, I know, a comic that is appropriately titled The Darkness is going to have its fair share of dark occurrences, after 100 plus issues it’s what you should come to expect. But trust me, this issue will far exceed any of your expectations...Moving on, the ending is a shocker, albeit one that many of us probably saw coming since the start of this new arc, but a shocker nonetheless. David Hine and Jeremy Haun deserve much of the credit for their smooth handling of every character, especially Jackie. Not to give anything away, but the collimation is definitely a game changer to say the least.

It's a great time to start reading THE DARKNESS. While we're four issues in, new readers can still get a handle on what's going on, especially with the first page giving a detailed summary of what's been going on... The clean slate that writer David Hine has been given allows him to do as he pleases with the characters and we have no idea what could or will happen to everyone. It's rare for a comic to make you a little uncomfortable in a way that you can't help but know something bad is going to happen. THE DARKNESS will easily suck you in each month as you wait to see what could possibly happen next.

A few hiccups, sure, but this is still another extremely solid issue of The Darkness under David Hine. Pick it up with #101, you'll be fine. Because that's what I did. David Hine makes this incredibly accessible to new readers without losing the 100 issues of history. Jackie's family is cracking apart, and The Darkness is at the root.
David Hine hits this issue out of the park, delivering a crescendo of sorts that contains some of the most messed up material I’ve ever had the pleasure to read in a comic book ... Jeremy Haun continues to impress with his stylistic take on the Darkness. His character designs are near flawless as his view of the world explodes in lavishly detailed panels. There are times when the art seems a bit stiff but in the end this is not a detriment to the story on any level, as Jeremy Haun consistently finds a way to make the book look engaging.
I said in the last review, that the Darkness is not going to be for everyone, nonetheless it’s still a very strong comic with a talented creative team at its back. And this latest issue shows how brilliant they can be. Highly recommended.
