KISS (yes, that KISS) is about to get groovy, as they crossover with Ash and the Army of Darkness.
Knights v Deadites
So, this is a strange one. And I mean that in almost every conceivable way. Dynamite Comics has announced that they’re crossing Army of Darkness’ Evil Dead with the legendary rock band KISS. Told you.
Yeah it definitely sounds odd at first brush. But even so, the story actually does make a bit of sense. You know, in an Army of Darkness way.
KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!
Yeah, well again – I warned you. Honestly though, I’m an even bigger fan of AoD than I am of Evil Dead. And yes, I know it’s the same franchise. Sort of. Even though KISS isn’t really my bag, I’m excited to see more zaniness from Ash and crew.
Check it out when KISS/Army of Darkness #1 launches this coming February.
“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”
