Cover Art and Plot Details for Next Year’s ‘Pumpkinhead’ Comic Books

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.

    I like the first cover but the human head looks a bit odd. I do like the 3rd and 4th one alot, the 3rd reminds me of the last page of the Dark Horse comics when Pumpkinhead grew wings.

  • It’s about damn time that they finally expanded the universe! The original film also mentioned that a demon exists for each sin, but none of the sequels had the creativity or common sense to actually explore that.

    This is cool and all, but I really wish there was an obsessed monster/practical effects director out there who wants to bring ‘Pumpkinhead’ back to the screen. I think ‘Pumpkinhead’ deserves a film that’s done the right way, not like the CGI crap they used in the other films. That’s one character that I dare say I’d like to see reimagined/rebooted, but only if it’s going to be done the way Stan Winston envisioned it in the first place!
