Darker Image #1 launched new characters by Jim Lee, Sam Kieth, and Rob Liefeld. This comic was meant to show case stories that were darker in nature than the other Image Comics titles at the time. Though it sold well, there was sadly only ever one issue.
On a personal note, this was one of my all time favorite comics in middle school. That Sam Kieth cover still slaps!
