The Army of Darkness Faces an Army of Ash Williams in February
Ash Williams is back in a new series, Death to the Army of Darkness, in February from Dynamite – but wait, there are more Ash Williams?!
The “Chosen One” has had enough of that nonsense, but gets way more than he bargained for when Ashley Joanna Williams suddenly splinters into multiple differing clones. And each is packing the same over the top personality as the original! Writer Ryan Parrott has concocted this comedy-horror extravaganza alongside artist Jacob Edgar. Their groovy crew is completed with colorist Kike J. Díaz and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou – who must have cloned himself to double as one of the best letterers and an Eisner-winning critic!
Picking up just barely after the legendary Army of Darkness film, the big mixup is of course due to some classic bad translation of the Necronomicon. Introducing the cast… Ash is joined by the personification of his feminine side with Ashley Williams, the erratic Lil’ Ash, Dash aka Doggie Ash, the cynical and morose Skeleton Ash and Chainy – Ash’s now sentient chainsaw!
Together they must travel through time to Ancient Egypt and prevent the Necronomicon from ever being written in the first place. Along the way, can Ash solve his split personality predicament – and how would the others feel about that? Could one of the party members be hiding something? Fans will just have to read to find out!
To celebrate all these fun new characters, Dynamite has enlisted its own wacky crew of cover artists. Ben Oliver leads the pack, perfectly capturing the attitudes of each of Ash’s new compatriots. The “Zombie King” himself, Arthur Suydam is a natural addition to the team. Mirka Andolfo brings her signature style. Fans can also be on the lookout for a special Valentine’s variant by Sebastián Píriz and a remastered Icon incentive cover featuring J. Scott Campbell‘s piece from Dynamite’s first-ever Army of Darkness comic book 15 years ago!
