Official Press Release
Runnemede, NJ – With issue #1 in stores and selling briskly – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information for the third issue of the all-new ARMY OF DARKNESS mini-series event – DARKMAN VS. THE ARMY OF DARKNESS! This issue is scheduled for release in November.
Dynamite stated, “Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern have thrown plenty of Necronomicon evil toward Ash and Darkman by way of the nefarious Deadqueen, and now they’re digging up Darkman’s original adversary- that ruthless mobster, Durant! Its action and excitement in the most “deadite” way possible, and the fans love every page of it! The interior art by James Fry has captured the dark comedic nature of both Darkman and Army of Darkman flawlessly. And, as if having Ash and Darkman team up isn’t wild enough, we’ve got covers by none other than the legendary George Perez and AOD veteran Nick Bradshaw! This whole series has been dual cool and ghouls cover to finish!”
Writer Kurt Busiek described the basis of the story in an interview with Wizarduniverse.com as, “The premise of the series is pretty simple. If you want to do an Ash story, it’s got to have the Army of Darkness, and if you want to do a Darkman story, you’ve got to mess with his city, and particularly, with Julie Hastings. So we have Julie accidentally read an incantation from the Necronomicon ex Mortis and summon the Army of Darkness to Darkman’s city.”
DARKMAN VS. THE ARMY OF DARKNESS #3 (OCT063349) WRITTEN BY KURT BUSIEK WITH ROGER STERN; ART BY JAMES FRY; COVERS BY GEORGE PEREZ AND NICK BRADSHAW (EQUAL RATIO)!
Dynamite presents the cross-over no one thought they would ever see – Ash and Darkman as we present Darkman Vs. the Army of Darkness #3!
The Deadqueen decides that Ash and Darkman are becoming a royal pain in her dead @$$, so she sets out to create her own special “Army of Darkness” — And from one particular gravesite, she calls forth the burned and battered body of Robert G. Durant. Whoo-Boy, Darkman isn’t going to like that!
All the mayhem is brought to you by writers Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern, artist James Fry and series cover artists George Perez and Nick Bradshaw!
