This is the Hastings Exclusive cover to Ash and the Army of Darkness #1, coming from Dynamite. Artwork by Sina Grace, colors by me, Shaun Steven Struble.
I won’t lie. This is my favorite cover we’ve done.
I remember being so excited when Army of Darkness came out. I was twelve and my cousins Chandi and Jeri had a VHS copy of Evil Dead 2 that they recorded off of late night HBO. It quickly became all of our favorite horror movie. We watched it a thousand times. So we were all pretty excited that it had a sequel and that we’d get to watch it in the theatre instead of a grainy video tape in SLP mode.
Since then, I have purchased this movie several times in several formats (bootleg extended VHS, official VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray). I even sent fan-mail to the film’s star Bruce Campbell when I was in high school. The trilogy still remains one of my favorites, regularly getting pulled out to be watched in October to celebrate Halloween.
I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of something official connected to one of my favorite childhood memories, even if it’s just for one cover. Thank you to James at Hastings and Dynamite for letting Sina and I play a part.
This cover will be available directly from Hastings (http://gohastings.com) at a later date.
