Darksiders creative director and comic-book hero Joe Madureira will be headlining a special London launch of Vigil Games' new title on 7th January 2010.

"Mad" will be at London's Forbidden Planet comic/DVD/figurine shop on Shaftesbury Avenue between 6pm and 7pm. Not only will this be the sole place to buy the game a day early, but Joe Madureira may also sign your copy.

THQ's Darksiders, a blend of Zelda and God of War and Soul Reaver and whatever else you might find lying around, is shaping up into an unashamed pantomime romp through the underbelly of the Apocalypse. War, one of the Four Horsemen, will be your vessel, and proper hard he is too.
