Dynamite is killing it with the announcements by creating a crossover called, Army of Darkness / Xena, Warrior Princess: Forever… and a Day. That is a weird title, but this 4-issue limited series by Scott Lobdell (Red Hood and the Outlaws) and illustrator Elliot Fernandez (Harley Quinn and Power Girl) looks sick cool.
Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher, said “Ashley Williams will always be one of my favorite characters, because there’s so many great AOD tales to tell, and he was the first Dynamite title we ever published. You never forget your first. As one of the most unlikely heroes in pop culture, it makes it impossible not to love him… unless, of course, you’re a battle-hardened warrior like Xena, who has a little less tolerance for such shenanigans. It’s an odd couple pairing that fans of both franchises will love!”
This will be a huge crossover for the publisher that fans should be really looking forward to. Like I said, I am very impressed by all the stuff Dynamite has been announcing at Comic-Con, just proving they are really pushing it. I am a fan of Lobdell’s so I might read it and give it a shot. This could be my introduction to these characters. I heard the TV Show Ash vs. Evil Dead which originated from Army of Darkness is really good so count me in. The issue #1 of the crossover comes in October. As always give me your thoughts in the comments below and check out these variant covers:
