Evil Dead 2 Comic Book Omnibus and Art Book Launches on Kickstarter

Space Goat Productions has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a set of deluxe, oversized Evil Dead 2 hardcover books. Included in the set is The Art of Evil Dead 2: Comic Books and Board Games as well as The Evil Dead 2 Omnibus. Both will be housed in a slipcase styled after the iconic Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from the cult classic film.

Art of Evil Dead 2: Comic Books and Board Games book provides backers with the chance to see behind-the-scenes character designs, concept artwork, penciled pages, layouts, and drawings. All of the assets are fully licensed and certified 100% groovy!

The Evil Dead 2: Omnibus Vol. 1 collects: Beyond Dead by Dawn, Cradle of the Damned, Dark Ones Rising, and Tales of the Ex-Mortis in one massive 300-page Necronomicon-sized tome.

The books are ready to send to the printer. The crowdfunding campaign is to raise funds for manufacturing. There are a variety of stretch goals to upgrade the production of the books available to backers–as well as high-end product from other Evil Dead licensees. Retailers are also able to back the campaign at an exclusive retailer tier with free shipping.

Space Goat Productions Extends Evil Dead 2 Comic Book License

Space Goat Productions, in partnership with Studiocanal and Creative Licensing, has announced they are extending their license for the Evil Dead 2 comic books for another 3 years.

The Evil Dead 2 themed coloring book will be unveiled at Emerald City ComiCon in March 2017.

A new 4-issue comic book mini-series Evil Dead 2: Doppleganger Wars is scheduled to be released in the latter half of 2017 and will feature Ash Williams going against an army of Ash doppelgangers. The adult coloring book, art book and hardcover omnibus will also be released in the latter half of 2017, along with anniversary editions of already released trade paperbacks.

Evil Dead 2 the Board Game Kickstarter!

Board games are about to get a lot more groovy–and gory–with The Official Evil Dead 2 Board Game. The game is a tile- and miniature-based survival-horror game that has launched on Kickstarter, produced by Space Goat Play (a division of Space Goat Productions) in conjunction with Studiocanal. And it’s Certified Groovy.

The game is designed with both casual and veteran board game fans in mind. Depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi cult classic, the official Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the definitive tabletop experience for Evil Dead 2 fans. 2-6 players will work together in 90-120 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

The game contains 8 figures which includes Ash, Annie, Jake, Ed, Bobby Jo, and Linda as well as Deadites and, naturally, Ash’s severed hand. The board game also includes custom Evil Dead 2 dice, a fully illustrated tile based board featuring the iconic cabin and the prequel mini-comic.

Space Goat has partnered with Kickstarter veterans Backerkit in order to process and execute the Kickstarter campaign.

The campaign also offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, as well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likenesses drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book. The Kickstarter campaign will run 30 days.

Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2 Universe Expands!

If you missed Hitler in March, don’t worry! He’s coming back in May!

Space Goat‘s Evil Dead 2 titles have successfully struck a horror nerve, according to Space Goat CEO Shon Bury. The company’s first “Revenge Of” one-shot, Evil Dead 2: Revenge Of Hitler by Ian Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers is sold out from the publisher and going back for a second printing.

Spurred by the strong initial orders and reorder activity on their initial title, Space Goat is expanding their “Revenge Of” titles pitting Ash against other classic horrors. The company has signed critically-acclaimed writers Scott Peterson, Ian Edginton, Georgia Ball, and Ty Templeton to handle the new Evil Dead 2 one-shots.

And they’re bringing with them tales of Martians, Vampires, Jack the Ripper, and Krampus for their 2016 titles.

The titles are meant to have a little fun with a property that’s already meant to be fun.

Veteran DC writer and editor Scott Peterson will tackle Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula this July. In the announcement release, Peterson said:

Ash and Dracula have to team-up to fight an even greater evil. But should you really bring a vampire to a demon fight?”

The one-shot will be illustrated by Yvel Guichet and Horacio Domingues. A variant cover by legendary Batman artist Kelley Jones will be offered as well.

Georgia Ball, who’s currently writing two graphic novels for Scholastic, will script Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Jack The Ripper. Ball said:

Ripper is the quintessential bad guy. He’s one of the original unsolved mysteries. That makes him a natural to go up against Ash and the Deadites with the Kandarian dagger as his weapon of choice.

Ty Templeton will revive H.G. Wells’ classic Martians from The War of the Worlds. Templeton said in the release:

Deadites are reanimating the preserved bodies of the original Martians. The Earth is looking at a second War of the Worlds, unless Ash can stop them, and it won’t be with the old cold-and-flu virus this time.

Templeton has previously worked on a round of EC-style variant covers for Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2: Cradle of the Damned series earlier this year.

Rounding out the first quintet of Revenge titles is Ian Edginton’s ode to holiday joy, Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Krampus.

The second printing of Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Hitler by Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers will ship in May. Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula will ship in July. Shipping dates and artists for the other Revenge Of titles will be announced shortly.

Be on the lookout for these titles this Summer and Fall!

May – Revenge of Hitler REPRINT

July – Revenge of Dracula by Scott Person

 September – Revenge of the Martians by Ty Templeton

October – Revenge of Jack the Ripper by Georgia Ball

November – Revenge of Krampus by Ian Edginton
