Army of Darkness vs. Reanimator: The Rematch!

Army of Darkness versus Reanimator

Some of Dynamite‘s earliest hit comics star the one and only Ash Williams of Army of Darkness and Dr. Herbert West of Reanimator – and now they’re going toe to toe once more for a summer blockbuster by Erik Burnham and Eman Casallos! Their first bestselling and out of print crossover is going back to press and shelves in time for the new story.

An archaeological dig unexpectedly unveils an important artifact from the world of Army of Darkness. Great find! The problem is that it ends up in the absolute worst hands possible – the mad, truly mad Dr. Herbert West. Which means the world must turn to its reluctant hero once more – Ashley Joanna Williams.

More than 15 years after their last tangling, Dynamite is upping the ante in the new series. The original crossover was written by James Kuhoric and drawn by star Sanford Greene. After two miniseries kicked off the Army of Darkness comics – and Dynamite’s comics as a whole – Ash and Dr. West opened up the first ongoing AOD title to the acclaim of fans and critics.

To commemorate that story and the new one, Dynamite is also reprinting that bestselling graphic novel. Long out of print, readers can pick up the original at the same time to dig into a duo of classics, old and new.

Army of Darkness Versus Reanimator is guaranteed to feature plenty of excitement, Deadite action, and glowing reanimation serum! Plus a set of horrific covers to kick off the mood before page one. Superstar Tony Fleecs leads the pack with the first of several inspiring takes on the AOD franchise. Christopher Mitten, Arthur Suydam, and Stuart Sayger also contribute great horror inspired covers.

Army of Darkness versus Reanimator : Necronomicon Rising #1 will be out in July 2022.

Aquamen Protect the Seven Seas Starting February 2022

Spinning out of Aquaman: The Becoming and Black Manta is Aquamen, a new ongoing comic book series. Aquamen is by the creative team of Chuck Brown, Brandon Thomas, Sami Basri, and Adriano Lucas. It comes to shelves in February 2022!

When a suicide bomber in Middle America is revealed as an Atlantean sleeper agent seemingly gone rogue, the Aquamen—Arthur Curry and Jackson Hyde—are on the case. But it soon becomes clear that the tragedy was not just a single bad actor, but the beginnings of a much larger and more dangerous chain reaction…and the heart of an explosive Atlantean conspiracy! If Arthur’s not careful, the secrets he’s keeping—from Mera, Tula, Tempest, Atlantis, the surface, and even Jackson—could cause a rift from which the Aquamen might never recover!

Aquamen #1, written by Chuck Brown and Brandon Thomas with art by Sami Basri and Adriano Lucas, launches on February 22! The debut issue of the ongoing new series will have a cover by Travis Moore, card stock variant covers by both Kael Ngu and Nick Robles, and a 1:25 ratio variant cover by Jim Lee and Alex Sinclair. Additionally, fans will be able to purchase a Black History Month variant cover by Alexis Franklin.

Also in February 2022, the final issue of Black Manta will be a can’t-miss issue leading directly into the Aquamen launch! It’s villain versus villain as Black Manta fights to stop Devil Ray, whose eyes are set on Atlantis but whose ambitions might very well bring about the end of the world. Will Manta finally be able to own his roots, his power, and his flaws to save Atlantis…and himself?

Black Manta #6, written by Chuck Brown with art by Valentine de Landro, a cover by David Talaski and a card stock variant cover by Sanford Greene, arrives in comic shops on February 8—two weeks before Aquamen #1 arrives! 

And the final issue of Aquaman: The Becoming leads directly into the Aquamen launch as well! Alongside family old and new, Jackson Hyde races to stop the next big undersea terrorist attack—and this time, Mera’s the target! But if he hopes to overcome his greatest enemy yet and protect the people he loves most, he’ll have to stop waiting for someone to give him permission to lead. It’s time for Jackson to reach out and take the mantle of Aquaman!

Aquaman: The Becoming #6, written by Brandon Thomas with pencils by Diego Olortegui, inks by Wade von Grawbadger, color by Adriano Lucas, a cover by David Talaski and a card stock variant cover by Khary Randolph, arrives in comic shops on February 15—one week before Aquamen #1!
