Media Release — Hold onto your boom-sticks, deadite fans!!! Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that Ashley J. Williams, the wisecracking, chainsaw-wielding star of their hit Army of Darkness series, is meeting the man in charge and taking a trip to the White House in the all-new mini-series event appropriately called, ASH SAVES OBAMA: A NEW HOPE?
“We’ve addressed this a bit, but for the record, there’s a lot of skepticism about all these Obama appearances in comics these days,” said Dynamite Associate Editor Joe Rybandt. “But hands down, we feel this is the best out of all of them, because really, no one else gets to throw Ash, Obama, a comic book convention and hordes of Deadites into one four issue series mixed in with the realism of President Obama trying to help save the auto industry. So, for all the “posting haters” out there, we’ve heard them all (and even came up with a few of our own): Army of Darkness: Beating a Deadite Horse, Army of Darkness: Jumping the Deadite Shark, Army of Darkness: What, Again? – of wait, that’s the sequel we’ve got brewing… and so on.”
He’s faced them all, but Ashley J. Williams is about to face the greatest horror of his entire deadite-kickin’ career – a comic book convention! But this ain’t any ol’ comic book convention; this one features a special appearance from the president of the United States of America – Barack Obama! How do things go from there when Ash and Obama are in the same place at the same time? And did we happen to mention that the Necronomicon is there doing the thing it does best – turning ordinary humans into the demon possessed undead!
This special Army of Darkness four-issue mini-series event is written by Elliott (Army of Darkness/Xena) Serrano, illustrated by Ariel Padilla and features covers by Todd (Amazing Spider-Man) Nauck and Lucio Parillo!
