Most of the Army of Darkness comics have sucked. This one might suck too.

From Bleeding Cool (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/07/15/steve-niles-to-write-ash-and-the-army-of-darkness/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter):

Steve Niles, author of 30 Days Of Darkness, is moving from vampires to demons to reboot the Army Of Darkness franchise at Dynamite with Ash And The Army Of Darkness, drawn by Dennis Calero, making it a direct sequel to the third Ash film and ignoring all other Army Of Darkness comics.

In a press release, Niles is quoted as saying;

“What I’m doing with Ash and the Army of Darkness is a complete reboot. We start and the last frame of the film and then go right to the next. It’s a wild ride and I think fans of the film will be very happy because I am bringing back a lot of what made the movie so fun. My run of Ash and the Army of Darkness takes place almost entirely in the 1300′s setting. That was what made Army of Darkness stand apart. I’m hoping readers agree.”

This is a series of pre-San Diego Comic Con announcements being made by Dynamite and embargoed across the day at a number of comic book websites, including Bleeding Cool.

I do like the cover art.

There are some sample pages in B&W at the link.

I thought some of them were pretty good? Army of Darkness vs Marvel Zombies was awesome. Heard good things about From the Ashes too.

"Dynamite are pulling their Steve Niles reboot of Ash and the Army of Darkness #1 from the first week of November to the last week of October, on sale on the 30th in time for Hallowe’en.

And here’s the Arthur Suydam retailer exclusive cover to go with it, available to any store that orders two hundred copies of the comic, with a space inside the comic thanking the store in question."
