Dakness Vs. Eva interview and previews

With issue #1 of our new four part Dynamite/Top Cow crossover scheduled to arrive in stores in a few weeks we spoke to Shaun Manning over at Comic Book Resources about the upcoming series.

In this corner, Top Cow’s tortured mobster-turned-hero Jackie Estacado, wielder of The Darkness; and in that corner, the challenger, from the pages of “Army of Darkness” and her own Dynamite Entertainment one-shot, Eva, Daughter of Dracula!
