"We have Halo in the [Top Cow Comics] office," Marc Silvestri says. The comic creator is in San Francisco today, showing off a preview version of The Darkness, a video game based on the book he created. "I can hold my own pretty well."
Sadly, Silvestri won't join in on the mayhem when three game writers and a representative from 2K Games have a go at Darkness' multiplayer action. He's content to sit and watch, and to praise the game's maker, Starbreeze. "They understood what The Darkness was," he says. "And they brought it. They brought it to this game."
