Ash Williams of Army of Darkness and Dr. Herbert West of Reanimator are two of Dynamite’s first hit comics and now the publisher has them facing off this summer again with Army of Darkness vs Reanimator.
Written by Erik Burnham and drawn by Eman Casallos, the new title is a follow up to the original crossover written by James Kuhoric and drawn by Sanford Greene (Bitter Root, Power Man and Iron Fist). After two miniseries kicked off the Army of Darkness comics (and Dynamite’s comics as a whole), the popular characters opened up the first ongoing Army of Darkness title to the acclaim of fans and critics. To commemorate the pairing even more, Dynamite is reprinting that bestselling graphic novel, which has been out of print for some time.

“An archaeological dig unexpectedly unveils an important artifact from the world of Army of Darkness. Great find! The problem is that it ends up in the absolute worst hands possible – the mad, truly mad Dr. Herbert West. Which means the world must turn to its reluctant hero once more – Ashley Joanna Williams.
Army of Darkness Versus Reanimator is guaranteed to feature plenty of excitement, Deadite action, and glowing reanimation serum! Plus a set of horrific covers to kick off the mood before page one. Superstar Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs, My Little Pony) leads the pack with the first of several inspiring takes on the AOD franchise. Christopher Mitten, Arthur Suydam, and Stuart Sayger also contribute great horror inspired covers.”
“This opportunity not only came out of the blue, it came together fast – and I couldn’t be more excited,” said Burnham. “Army of Darkness has always had that perfect mix of horror and humor, which makes it a very fun sandbox to play in. And it’s great to be working with Eman Casallos again – he’s really bringing some of the weirder elements of this story to life. All in all, it’s been a blast, and I can’t wait to share it with folks!”
Army of Darkness vs Reanimator #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ May 2022 Previews catalog and will release in July 2022. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder with their favorite local comic book shop. It will also be available through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
