PHIL HESTER DRAWS THE DARKNESS

Top Cow Productions has announced that Phil Hester, the current writer for The Darkness, will take over artistic duties on the series for "Bog," a two-part story which he has also written.

"Bog" begins in The Darkness #80 , which is solicited for a 2009 release, and will conclude the following month in The Darkness #81.

Hester, whose previous art credits for Top Cow include the Daredevil/Magdalena one-shot, has been the sole writer for the third volume of The Darkness since its launch in 2007. The Darkness #80 marks the first time that his art will accompany his writing in the series.

The story follows current Darkness bearer Jackie Estacado and his recently formed crew of criminals as they head to the swamp on their quest to destroy every representation of The Sovereign in the world. But they soon find that the swamp they are in has a monstrous protector.

"Although I'm not a typical Top Cow artist, the story line in Bog allows me to really play to my dark, angular, twisted strengths," Hester said.

Two cover variants will be offered for The Darkness #80, one by Hester and another by artist Michal Ivan. The Darkness #81 will feature a cover by regular series artist Michael Broussard, who returns to the The Darkness with issue #82.
