Enter the world of The Darkness, a mysterious and violent power bestowed upon one Jackie Estacada, ruthless mafia hitman and dedicated ladies' man, whose dark gift maneuvers him to the center of an epic struggle between hellish forces of cosmic proportions. The Darkness gives Jackie the means to revenge his uncle's attempted assassination, and in a whirlwind of addictively vivid illustrations an engrossing panorama of grab-you-by-the-throat-and-won't-let-go story and pure eye candy artwork, bending your optic nerves into staring O's of captivated astonishment, is unleashed.

Now, just so we get a few things straightened out here. The writing is OK, but it's not Alan Moore. Still, it's sleek and hip enough to make the characters--if not leap off the page then at least walk and talk in a way that's in tune with the flow of the story. Speaking of which: the story is fine, a real grabber, as I already mentioned, but it's not very original. You get the blend of mafia crime story and horror fantasy yarn, with lots of cliches and overused concepts thrown in--that's where Alan Moore could have worked his magic, I suppose. YET--and that's a BIG YET: the story, despite it's somehow unoriginal components, is assembled in a way that makes it utterly irresistible.

The book's strong point, of course, is the artwork. The visuals are nothing short of breathtaking. Every page is a revelation of color, shape and iconicity. What themes are neglected or unfairly shortchanged in the storytelling of the written narrative receive abundant compensation through the dramatic scope of the drawings.

HASH(0xa6a50f18) von 5 Sternen Even Better Than I'd Hoped 17. September 2009
Von Keith White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

After recently purchasing and reading through both Witchblade Compendiums (Volumes 1 and 2), I ordered The Darkness Compendium, never having read this series before, my interest peaked from reading through Witchblade. I am glad to say now, after recently having read it, that it is certainly on-par with Witchblade, which is my favorite graphic novel/comic book series of all time. The rivalry between the Darkness and the Angelus, with the malevolent Sonatine in the mix, is a pleasure to read through, having beautiful artwork depicting these epic battles between "good" and "evil" and dialogue that is highly engrossing, though it does falter from time to time with spelling/grammar errors and inconsistencies. Add in the fact that my version of the book is hardcover--which is *really* sweet--and what you have (or what you could have) is a book that will likely be among the most coveted in your collection.

HASH(0xa6ab6804) von 5 Sternen Strong Art Poor Story 13. März 2010
Von Citan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Eh, rather mediocre and disjointed. I was really disappointed upon reading the Darkness after seeing other people's reviews. It sounded like it would be a good read but I was personally never engrossed. The stories are extremely disjointed and as other people have mentioned there's chunks of the story simply missing which ruins the already weak story telling. Couple that with the fact that Jackie never seems to do anything and everything is done to him the story flows more like, "Ok, who else can we throw at Jackie that might possibly challenge him". There is no personal development and you don't care for the characters until the very very end when things start to pick up, but then the compendium switches to stand alone tales. It's hard to care for characters as shallowly presented as those in the Darkness. Seriously, for most of The Darkness Jackie's only two thoughts are "Who can I kill next who hasn't tried to kill me" and "Why can't i have sex?" with the occasional "I miss my childhood friend Jenny but alas we can never be together because she doensn't like me killing people". Those thoughts over and over again. The art is good though and if a decently interesting story is of no importance to you then I would recommend this compendium. The hardcover binding is solid and the book does indeed have a nice heft to it.

HASH(0xa6ab9240) von 5 Sternen A MUST HAVE!!! (If you can get one.) 19. August 2013

I usually purchase from the Top Cow Store site, but to find "The Darkness Volume 1 Compendium" as a HC version, is impossible now. I'm so excited I was able to get my hands on one that looks absolutely perfect. Worth every penny, and I'm ecstatic to have found it in a HC version. Now I have both Volumes in HC! I'm a hardcore fan of "The Darkness" so finding this SOLD OUT limited edition of this Volume in HC and such amazing condition, is like finding buried treasure!!! A perfect edition to anybody's Top Cow collection or collection of THE DARKNESS!!

Great reading if you are into this series. The construction of the book is good, excellent printing and layout. Will be adding more to this collection. I bit pricy,but to have in a compendium form is great.
