Can Jackie get a grip on his life before everything gets more disturbing? I genuinely hope not, but read on to find out.
The official description from Image:
“BREAKING DARK”, Part One
Jackie Estacado never feared much of anything, except the Darkness itself. Then the rules changed and he learned that there are things in this world that even the Darkness should fear.
There are more questions than answers in this issue, as the series takes a slight shift in tone. Yes, it still employs some uniquely disturbing horror visuals but this release is beyond trying to scare you, now it wants to show you the big picture established in that first five-part arc. But no worries everybody, Jackie‘s family is still in this and they are very much stuck in the same messed up situation they’ve been in.
David Hine once again delivers a very solid script and to be honest my one and only complaint is that I wish #107 was arriving next week so I could know for a fact what happens next. But beside that, once again his characterizations, use of dialogue and close-knit plotting gives fans a fascinating piece that flows rather briskly. His use of the Top Cow Rebirth has simply been exceptional, as the threads he seems to be laying in this monthly book seem to be possibly, germinating and popping up in Witchblade.
Jeremy Haun is an exceptional artistic talent. His panel work in this issue is as good as its ever been, as he employs stiff and curvy line to extenuate The Darkness and it’s Darklings in a way fans have simply come to love. Detailed faces, dynamic angles all features that continue to prove that he’s a very exceptional talent.
The Darkness #106 is another very good issue that may not answer the questions it brings up, but it will keep you tied to your seat and frantically turning pages until you reach the cliffhanger. Recommended.
