Vol. 1 Issue 33 is the 33rd issue of first The Darkness comic series volume published in 1996.
Sometimes you can learn more about a person by hanging out with that person's sister. Family, as they say, is everything. This two part story (by Scott Lobdell and guest penciler Brian Ching) explores The Darkness from a a whole different angle, as we get to learn about the past of Jackie's twin sister, Capris Castaglione. For all those fans who have been following the exploits of Mr. Estacado -- you might be surprised to discover he's the good twin! (Both this issue and the next set up for the extended story arc starting in Darkness #35 -- featuring the return of Ripclaw!)
