Dynamite Celebrates Army of Darkness Anniversary with Special Issue

 

 

 

Anniversary issues can be a big deal in comics.  From celebrating Batman's 75th birthday to reaching a milestone centennial issue, they're often lauded with great fanfare.  Dynamite Entertainment intends to do that this November with Army of Darkness #1992.1 a commemorative square-bound edition to honor the year of the original film's release.  The comic will feature short stories of the demon-hunting hero Ash Williams featuring the creative talents of Steve Niles, Elliott Serrano, Cullen Bunn, James Kuhoric, and Mike Raicht, each of which have contributed to the Army of Darkness comics at one point or another with the exception of Bunn.  

 

Senior Editor Joseph Rybandt says, "Army of Darkness will always have a special place in our collective hearts, as ten years ago, it was our very first title.  We've thrown everything at Ash in the interim, but we're throwing him into space next. And it all starts here."

 

"I'm proud to be a part of this incredible celebration, but truth be told, they couldn't have done it without me," says Ashley J. Williams, star of the movie and comics. "When they suggested the #1992.1 comic, I said, 'Why, that's the highest numbered comic of all time. That sounds great!' They stated that another company had done a #One Million, and shotgun in hand, I explained to them how that was a stunt and this is the real deal, so all I can say is... buy it! You'll love it."

 

Army of Darkness #1992.1 will be available both digitally and at your local comic shop this November.
