Ash Joins Forces With KISS for New ‘Army of Darkness’ Comic Series!

You say “Why?” We say “Why the hell not?!”

The Evil Dead franchise’s Ash Williams has crossed paths with a handful of other pop culture icons in the world of comic books, including Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Xena: Warrior Princess and even the Christmas demon known as Krampus. But the Deadite-slayer’s most bizarre pairing to date may very well be his next one.

Dynamite Entertainment has just announced that they’ll be mashing together their Army of Darkness and KISS brands for a new comic series launching February 2018!

In Issue #1, written by Chad Bowers & Chris Sims, illustrated by Ruairi Coleman…

“KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path.”

Check out the three Issue #1 covers below!



  • Grimphantom
    I like Kiss’s music but it’s getting tire by watching them appeared everywhere…..

  • Creepshow

    Is this going to have the original members of KISS, or the replacement clowns? Eh, either way I couldn’t give a fuck. Gene & Paul can go eat mime shit.

  • Saturn

    So I guess All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose, and Ash will have to help (with Gene being the lead hero, no doubt) kill the Creatures Of The Night, but Ash will screw it up. Heaven’s On Fire, and will be Hotter Than Hell, and after the death of Ash we will have A World Without Heroes.
    But then a figure will appear out of the darkness and scream aloud “You Wanted The Best!”, the mist will clear and lo and behold, here to save the day is the one and only God Of Thunder, Johnathon Schaech, who will Destroy all that is Unholy, in this case by shooting the Black Diamond with his Love Gun.

    Or something.
    And it’s a Venom origin story.

    • Creepshow

      You made me spill the last of my Cold Gin. Looks like I’ll have to Lick It Up. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to Put the X in Sex.
      Um, Burn Bitch Burn.

      • Saturn

        I did consider burning my bitch, but Who Want’s To Be Lonely when I could have Thrills In The Night for the next what seems like 100,000 Years?
        . She is actually Goin’ Blind, and her last request before this happens is that she can spend some time with Schaechy in the Ladies Room Makin’ Love, she said to me “I Still Love You”, so, I reckon I’ll let her, as I am Almost Human. Anything for My Baby.
        I know he has Charisma, and the Magic Touch, and it’s only going to be Tomorrow And Tonight, and I could say no, but She’s So European and she has Great Expectations and I’ve gotta Love Her All I Can.
        Actually, fuck it, I’m going to kill them both and make sure they DyNasty……

        • Creepshow

          We have an emergency here!!

          I best be Calling Dr. Love.

  • Is Ash going to help them save Santa Clause from the Evil Dead?

  • IWC-3PO

    Kiss met up with Scooby Doo recently also. Ash/Scooby crossover in the future?

  • Sam Beckett

    Gave up on these comics after their incessant crossovers years ago and yet they still come. Do they have any respect for the franchise? I remember myspacing the creator of Hack/slash many times and he promised me he would never cross over with AOD.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    Can’t wait to read this one^^ I love the band, I saw them twice and I hope to see them again soon^^ I’ve read some of their comics, which were pretty good actually. And Evil Dead comics rock for the most part. Especially love Freddy vs Jason vs Ash ^^

    • disqus_f5PwdAn0uV

      Jason is a deadite. The necronomicon and the dagger are both in Friday the 13, part 9, Jason goes to hell.

      • Saturn

        Until Sam Raimi says Jason is a Deadite, he’s not, no matter what the director of JGTH may want us to believe.

      • TimR

        Jason being a deadite makes zero sense, just like JGTH made zero sense. Jason has zero deadite traits. He doesn’t talk like one, he doesn’t levitate like one, and he doesn’t have the sunken in white eyes and grotesque face like one (he has a grotesque face, but not like a deadite, just like a mongoloid).

        It also wouldn’t fit with the timeline, either. The Necronomicon had been lost since the medieval times in Kandarian ruins, and wasn’t found until about 1982. So there’s no way Pamela could have resurrected him, or anyone else, until after 1982. Problem is Jason was already seen to be alive (and human) in the opening of F13 p2, which took place only a few months after the original, which took place in 1979. What killed Jason in part 4 wouldn’t have killed a deadite, either, as his head and limbs weren’t completely chopped off. And in part 6 he was resurrected by lightning, not the Necronomicon. Just goes to show how little the director of the franchise understands about the franchise, as if JGTH didn’t show that enough.

  • Christopher Nickerson

    At this point isn’t teaming with KISS showing you are put of ideas for your property?

  • Pumpkin Witch

    Gene Simmons made me boycott everything KISS related… I like Ash and The Evil Dead movies but KISS is a huge turn-off.

  • Alanmac

    Fuck this. I won’t contribute to ANYTHING that Gene Simmons is profiting from.

  • Necro

    I immediately said no as soon as I read ‘KISS’ was involved! Fuck Gene Simmons and that entire piece of shit band! The people behind this should be ashamed of themselves putting ‘Ash’ anywhere near those assholes!

  • AdamX

    Four marginal musicians put on a bunch of makeup and got teens to love them well into their money producing golden years. Horrible people mostly but credit where credit is due.

  • Glitchiee Glitch

    …. LOL kiss…. stupid band stupid makeup stupid ass name and horrible fucking music

  • bigval
