Ash faces off against Dr. Herbert West again in Army of Darkness Versus Re-Animator: Necronomicon Rising. Written by Erik Burham and illustrated by Eman Casallos. Published by Dynamite Comics. The first issue is due out this July.
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.
“This opportunity not only came out of the blue, it came together fast – and I couldn’t be more excited,” said writer Erik Burnham. “Army of Darkness has always had that perfect mix of horror and humor, which makes it a very fun sandbox to play in. And it’s great to be working with Eman Casallos again – he’s really bringing some of the weirder elements of this story to life. All in all, it’s been a blast, and I can’t wait to share it with folks!”
