Dynamite Entertainment have announced Ash Vs. The Army of Darkness, an all-new series based on the 1992 cult film, and are going to be publishing a #0 issue with an introductory price of only $0.99. Called “S-Mart Special Pricing” as a in-joke to AOD fans, this zero issue will also welcome new fans and readers to the franchise in this 25th anniversary year for the film, Army of Darkness.

The opening chapter in this Army of Darkness epic will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims (X-Men ’92, Swordquest), and drawn by Mauro Vargas (Crossed: Badlands).
Ash may be the Chosen One, but that doesn’t mean he can hold down a steady job at S-Mart. When he’s scrambling for employment, will he find himself once again thrown into battle against the Deadites? Here’s a hint: The book ain’t called Ash: The Guy With A Regular Job Who Doesn’t Battle Against The Forces of Evil.
The 99-cent debut issue of Ash Vs. The Army of Darkness features a cover by Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine & The X-Men). Five variant cover editions are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue. These variant editions include three “Sneak Peek” editions by Reilly Brown (Deadpool & Cable), series artist Mauro Vargas (Crossed: Badlands), and Pasquale Qualano (Doctor Who); a “Blood Red” Line Art cover edition by the aforementioned Nick Bradshaw; and a J. Scott Campbell “13th Anniversary Flashback” cover edition, in homage to the very first Army of Darkness comic book cover when Dynamite launched its flagship title in 2004.
