Army of Darkness Meets Hack/Slash

A while ago I talked about how Hack/Slash, after 25 issues with Image Comics, ended with their "Finale." But the creator of the horror cult favorite Tim Seeley mentioned it wouldn't be the last time we would see Hack/Slash protagonist Cassie Hack. With this announcement of an Army of Darkness and Hack/Slash crossover, Seeley's words ring true. Better yet, the crossover will be written by none other than Seeley himself. The six issue mini-series known as Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash begins with Cassie Hack trying to have a normal life after the events of Hack/Slash when she is attacked by a Deadite. However, Cassie isn't joined by Hack/Slash behemoth Vlad but Ashley J. Williams (a.k.a. Ash of Evil Dead and Army of Darkness fame). Now, the two must refrain from killing each other to find stolen pages from the Book of the Dead. The covers for Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash will be drawn by Tim Seeley, Hack/Slash co-creator Stefano Casello, Ben Templesmith and there will be a special cover drawn by Chris Eliopolis. Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash #1 Caselli Cover Seeley is excited to finally have a crossover between the popular horror two franchises. "Besides being one of the inspirations for Hack/Slash," Seeley said, "Army of Darkness has long been one of my all-time favorite films... Readers have been asking for Cassie and Ashley J. Williams to meet for as long as I've been making Hack/Slash, and we're finally going to give them what they want. There will be blood, boobs, baseball bats, and boomsticks."

 But this isn't the first time Ash has met other popular horror characters. Ash has teamed up with and fought the likes of Marvel Zombies, Danger Girl Abbey Chase, Vampirella and Red Sonja in the pages of Prophecy, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger and, of course, Obama. Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash #1 Seeley Cover "It's a natural fit, putting Army of Darkness together with the ever-popular Cassie Hack," Nick Barrucci mused. "And honestly, it's what the fans have asked for! Ash is the Crossover King, that perfect combination of badass and jester which makes for amazing, amusing comic book team-ups. And what better combo could there be, between a splatter movie hero and the ultimate Last Girl?"

 Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash will be released both in stores and digitally on July 2013 and I'm looking forward to seeing some blood and sugar baby! Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash #1 Templesmith Cover
