Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information concerning their newest addition to the ARMY OF DARKNESS with a special cross-over, mini-series event, featuring DARKMAN!
The mini-series event begins in August, replacing the regular DYNAMITE AOD series for that month, and will continue bi-monthly until the mind-blowing final issue!
"We've got two great characters, two great cover artists [the previously announced George (Infinite Crisis/Brave and the Bold) Perez for issue #1 - and all 4) with AOD veteran Nick Bradshaw - what great creators!," commented DYNAMITE SPOKESPERSON J. ALLEN. "Fans will be talking about this one for years to come, and as far as AOD cross-overs go, this is just the beginning --we have BIG, BIG plans for Ash in '06 and '07, and we'll be giving you the sugar, that's for sure!"
Co-Writer Kurt ("Superman") Busiek, who wrote the former comic book incarnation of DARKMAN for Marvel describes the pairing "Kinda like Superman and Batman -- but this particular "world's finest" lives in a mixed-up, demented world..."
Co-writer Roger ("Living Legend" -- this guy's written everything from Dr. Strange to Superman) Stern added that the "characters of Darkman and Ash have already been pretty well established. It's all a matter of weaving stories that are faithful to both of them."
And artist James Fry, who worked with Busiek during that original run at Marvel, gets the final word: "I've been a fan of All Things Raimi since EVIL DEAD further disturbed my already deeply scarred psyche. I remember seeing Bruce Campbell's cameo as the Final Shemp at the end of DARKMAN and thinking "Wow!!! Wouldn't it be cool if this guy met Ash???" As a matter of fact, when Kurt and I are in our nineties and can no longer remember which hole in our faces we're supposed to stick the food into, we'll still be arguing over whose idea this whole project was in the first place!"
It all begins in JULY, reserve your copy today!
