I'm so tired this morning that if horseman Death came charged toward me, I'd limply reach out a hand to touch his scythe and embrace the sweet, sweet sleep that awaits. But fortunately he's fictional, and I'll wake up soon. He is, however, to feature in Darksiders II, and if you needed more proof than my word, there are screenshots of said game below. They're new, and they've got big, cross monsters in them.
The game is currently set for a June release this year.
