Official Press Release
DYNAMITE AND MARVEL today announced a sensational team-up of artistic talents for the final issues of the crossover event of the year, Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness! To complete Ash’s battle against the undead Marvel heroes, series artist Fabiano Neves is joined by none other than Marvel Zombies veteran artist Sean Phillips and Army of Darkness artist Fernando Blanco to complete the smash hit limited series. The team-up of artists will be featured in Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness #4, which is scheduled for a June release and the series finale in July with issue #5.
About the artistic team up, Dynamite stated, "Fans are getting the Triple Crown winner of artists with these last two issues of Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness. Teaming up Sean Phillips and Fernando Blanco with Fabiano Neves for the big climax is like… well, it’s like having the Marvel Zombies and Ash in the same series! Sean’s pencils certainly know their way around the brutal world of Marvel Zombies, and AOD fans went crazy for Fernando’s work on the final issues of AOD (and the final days of Ash), so to have them both work on Ash’s afterlife adventures is simply ‘Dynamite’! Of course, regular series artist Fabiano Neves and writer John Layman will continue their incredible work on Earth-2149, keeping Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness the pure brain-craving, chainsaw-slashing action and excitement that it has been from the very beginning."
Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness is a Five-Issue Limited Series that will serve as a direct prequel to last year’s smash Marvel Zombies series which featured "dynamite" covers by Arthur Suydam, crisp scripts by Robert Kirkman and fantastic art by Sean Philips and colorist June Chung! Marvel Zombies followed the events in Mark Millar’s and Greg Land’s Ultimate Fantastic Four #24. With the success retailers have had with Marvel Zombies (both the series, the Hard Cover collection going to multiple printings and the Ultimate FF appearances), and the sell out of Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness #1, #2 and #3, as well as Army of Darkness #13 (where Ash made his first appearance on to Earth-2149), retailers are asked to double check their orders for #4 and #5 to ensure having enough when the book is in stores.
