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!

July – Revenge of Dracula by Scott Person

 September – Revenge of the Martians by Ty Templeton

Being hounded by the forces of darkness? Ash understands that. But being trapped on a space station 200 miles above the Earth? That’s unfamiliar territory! What would make the Deadites head into outer space? For Ash, the answer is like a kick in the family jewels! And if demonic entities weren’t bad enough, an old enemy makes a shocking return!

Cullen Bunn Launches New Army of Darkness Series

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that its flagship title and longest-running comic book series, Army of Darkness, will launch with a brand new #1 issue in December. Cullen Bunn, the celebrated writer of Deadpool, will take iconic horror hero Ash Williams somewhere he has never been before: outer space. Longtime franchise fans are invited to strap themselves in for the bold new direction, in a series featuring interior artwork by Army of Darkness staple Larry Watts, as well as cover artwork by industry heavyweights, including Gabriel Hardman, Tim Seeley, Art Adams, Walter Flanagan, and Jay Shaw.

Ash Williams, the hero of horror franchise Army of Darkness and reluctant “Chosen One” in the war against demons, has encountered so many strange happenings over the years, but nothing could have prepared him for his latest misadventure. Catapulted into the depths of space, Ash must confront the Deadites in a place where no one can hear his screams… or his chainsaw… or his boomstick! What do the forces of the evil dead want with the International Space Station… and can our square-jawed protagonist prevent Armageddon?

Army of Darkness #1 is slated for release in December.
