If you have a list of panels and booths you want to hit during the San Diego Comic-Con, here's another one to consider. 2K Games is hosting a panel titled "Spreading the Darkness: From Comic Book to Video Games and Entertainment." It will feature discussions about The Darkness II by talent from Top Cow and Digital Extremes and is scheduled for Thursday, July 21 from 12:00 - 1:00 Pacific in room 9.
The panel will look at the expansion of The Darkness from a comic to videogame as an entertainment medium. Marc Silvestri, CEO of Top Cow and co-creator of the comic, will be joined by Top Cow president Matt Hawkins and Darkness II project director Sheldon Carter from Digital Extremes. There's going to be other guest speakers, but they are being kept a secret.
2K is also bringing a demo of the game, playable at the Top Cow booth (#2629). Anyone who plays will get to try out the quad-wielding, which translates to more slaughter.
