Over six months ago we reported to you that this comic was in the works and now it looks like Dynamite is finally ready to release the horror crossover we’ve all been waiting for, Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash!
Hit the jump for all the details.
Comic Vine reports that the series will last six issues and is being written by Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley (no word on who the artist will be). It is described like this:
“The story involves Cassie, after the events of the HACK/SLASH series, trying to live a normal life. Of course things won’t be normal for long as a Deadite attack forces her back into action. Used to working with a partner, this time Cassie will find herself teaming up with Ashley J. Williams. The question is, can they get along in order to complete their quest to find the stolen pages from the Book of the Dead. Another question is, will Ash get some sugar?”
A long time in the making, Seeley says the series will have everything you could possibly want.
“Besides being one of the inspirations for Hack/Slash, Army of Darkness has long been one of my all-time favorite films. Readers have been asking for Cassie and Ashley J. Williams to meet for as long as I’ve been making Hack/Slash, and we’re finally going to give them what they want. There will be blood, boobs, baseball bats, and boomsticks.”
Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash #1 will be released this July. Check out all the covers for the first issue below!
