Not only is Dynamite Entertainment bringing rock band KISS and Army of Darkness together for a comic series early next year, but they’re also resurrecting Pumpkinhead!
The original comics, being penned by Cullen Bunn, will tell brand new stories that expand upon the rich mythology present in Stan Winston’s directorial debut.
In Issue #1, arriving in February 2018…
“For thirty years, the demon of vengeance has been still, its corpse buried in a pumpkin patch graveyard in the hills. But when a reckless driver accidentally kills a pair of children, the creature is called up once more. This time, though, the monster’s intended target is protected by a cruel backwoods crime family. They hatch their own supernatural plans for dealing with Pumpkinhead. For each of man’s sins, a special demon exists, and when seven infernal creatures roam the hills and the hollows, no one–guilty or otherwise–is safe.”
And then, in Issue #2, arriving in March 2018…
“The demon of vengeance has been awakened, and the creature is stalking a group of backwoods drug kingpins responsible for the deaths of two children. Sheriff Andi Ferris is caught between an unstoppable killer and those marked for an agonizing end. But the would-be victims have some supernatural tricks of their own up their sleeves, and in their desperation to survive, they may unleash more pure evil into the world.”
The comics will also feature a side story about the witch known as Haggis.
