If you thought one Ash Williams wasn't enough, how's six? That's what's in store for us in Death to the Army of Darkness, a new comic debuting in February 2020 from Dynamite Entertainment. Written by Ryan Parrott, illustrated by Jacob Edgar, colored by Kike J. Diaz, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, the book splits Ash into multiple differing clones, each packed with the same over-the-top personality as the original.

Picking up just barely after the legendary Army of Darkness film, the big mixup is of course due to some classic bad translation of the Necronomicon. Introducing the cast... Ash is joined by the personification of his feminine side with Ashley Williams, the erratic Lil' Ash, Dash aka Doggie Ash, the cynical and morose Skeleton Ash and Chainy - Ash's now sentient chainsaw! 

Together they must travel through time to Ancient Egypt and prevent the Necronomicon from ever being written in the first place. Along the way, can Ash solve his split personality predicament - and how would the others feel about that? Could one of the party members be hiding something? Fans will just have to read to find out!

Parrott shared, "Ash is just such a unique character to get to write, a self-serving braggart who always stumbles backward into being a hero. And I'm really excited about the story we're telling. This series is wacky fun and really digs into Deadite mythology. It's full of blood, sweat and boomsticks... so I really hope fans come along for the ride."

Artist Jacob Edgar said, "Army of Darkness has pretty much everything you’d want to draw in a comic book, and Ryan is playing to ALL of that with his scripts. Ash is a ton of fun as a character, trying to translate his expressiveness and... unique brand of heroism to the page. There’s quite a legacy for us to live up to on a property like this, with all the films/TV/comics that have come before, but I think we’re bringing something fresh and really special!"
“This series is a love story dedicated to the concept of beating the ever-living hell out of evil demons and breaking as many things as possible and pouring buckets of monster blood on everything!," added editor Nate Cosby. "And I think Ryan, Jacob, Kike and Hassan should be ashamed of themselves. Buy it in February!”

Death to the Army of Darkness features covers from Ben Oliver, Arthur Suydam, and Mirka Andolfo, plus a Valentine's variant by Sebastian Piriz and a remastered Icon incentive cover featuring J. Scott Campbell's piece from Dynamite's first ever Army of Darkness comic from 15 years ago. Look for Death to the Army of Darkness #1 at your local comic shop in February 2020.
