Fancy that.

The folk at Dynamite Entertainment and Top Cow (Famous for such fine all-ages reading fare as Witchblade and Magdalena) are doing one of those inter-company crossover thingies designed to boost the profile of their properties to each other's respective audience: This time, its The Darkness and Eva: Daughter of Dracula: in this case, the Darkness is a long-running independant horror comic and Eva is a newer character who seems to be an attractive girl with a sword.

The astute comic book reader will recognise this ploy from 62.35% of the comics published between 1992-1998. The covers would feature buxom lasses wearing clothing in inverse proportion to the size of their busts, and muscular dudes standing in the shadows with, like, tentacles or shadows or shadowy tentacles coming out of their backs. Like all the great ideas in comics publishing, this idea got real old real fast, and I see nothing in what has been released so far about this project to indicate otherw-

Well, wouldja look at that. Female character whose breasts aren't the focus of the picture, wearing clothing exposing only a socially acceptable level of flesh holding a sword in a determined pose with a facial expression that doesn't indicate submission or undue sexual excitement.

Aw, Top Cow comics covers. You're all growing up. ^_^
