January 21, 2008, Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today is showcasing images and information announcing the March release of Army of Darkness #8, the concluding chapter of the all-new “The Long Road Home” storyline by co-writers James Kuhoric and Mike (Marvel’s Zombie, Dynamite’s SAVAGE TALES) Raicht along with artist Fernando Blanco! Also, fans should be on the look out for Army of Darkness #6, due in stores on February 6th!
After the apocalyptic events of “From the Ashes” (AOD #’s 1-4) Ash is reunited with Sheila as the two set out to remake the world and reclaim the legacy of humanity. How can Ash possibly screw this up? Oh, just you wait. It all starts here in Ash’s “Long Road Home”!
In “The Long Road Home” everyone’s favorite chainsaw wielding hero Ashley J. Williams faces off against deadites, mutants and even the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse! In the conclusion of “The Long Road Home” Ash faces the Riders of the Apocalypse and the dark demon behind it all as our hero attempts to reverse the course of the “End of Days”! It all comes to an explosive conclusion that finds Ash once again on the receiving end of a swift kick in the ass, courtesy of the Necronomicon!
Army of Darkness #8 features a cover by fan-favorite artist Fabiano Neves and a special variant cover by Stjepan Sejic!
According to AOD co-writer, Mike Raicht, “Working on Army of Darkness: The Long Road Home with James Kuhoric and Dynamite has been a blast so far. Ash and the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse are on a collision course with nothing less than the fate of the world in the balance, of course. This confrontation will very likely lend itself to Ash unleashing some serious Chosen One justice. And while I have favorite moments in the first few issues, the last two issue (of ‘Long Road Home’) definitely take the cake. We deliver an insanely large body tower, witty Four Horseman banter (at least to us), huge mutant warriors fighting gladiator style in a sporting event unlike any you’ve ever seen, and we even throw in a barbecue pit. Can you believe that? Who doesn’t love barbecue? And that’s all in the first 9 pages so – I’m not even close to giving away the ending. Imagine what we have planned for the other 13 pages and the finale in issue #8. All of this leads us into a brand new story arc which I am super excited about.”
Along with being the “chosen one” in the constant battle against the Deadites and the evil of the Necronomicon, Ashley J. William’s adventures in Dynamite’s Army of Darkness series have had him trekking through realities and facing horror icons such as the Re-Animator, Darkman and even Dracula.
