Humble Bundle and Dynamite Launch Army of Darkness Comics Bundle


These days, it looks like everything is turning up positive for those of us with boomsticks. Starz has already renewed Ash vs. Evil Dead for a second season and now Dynamite is offering a lot of Army of Darkness books on the cheap. Thanks to their latest Humble Bundle, fans can get some of their favorites in the Army of Darkness mythos in comic book form. In total, there are 92 comics bundled here to help commemorate 1992 - the year that the Army of Darkness movie first hit theaters! The first taste is free as each day throughout the promotion, fans can sample the content as Ash brings some "sugar" with a new FREE comic at 2 PM Pacific time daily.

"Army of Darkness was our first title at Dynamite and we've loved Ash since day one!" said Nick Barrucci, CEO/Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "Combining his eleven year of adventures with Humble Bundle to bring to a new audience is fantastic as it will help create awareness and bring more fans into the comics market. We've had great success with Humble Bundle, and are excited to create new opportunities for fans to come aboard and read more Dynamite Comics. In addition, we are able to help three incredibly important charities including Make-A-Wish, Doctors Without Borders, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. This bundle is "groovy!"

The stories bundled here feature legendary crossovers with other icons of the horror genre including Re-Animator, Dracula, and Hack/Slash - not to mention a groovy guest spot as Ash saves President Barack Obama. When he's not bailing out the commander in chief, follow Ash on his many misadventures as he goes from ancient Egypt to entering a video game, blasts off into SPAAAACE, not to mention his scariest destination of all - the altar. This bundle also features some of comics' biggest names including Cullen Bunn, Steve Niles, Nick Bradshaw, Sanford Greene, Andy Hartnell and even The Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman, plus many more.
