Election season is upon us, and many Americans are searching for the right candidate to get behind this fall. Thankfully, Dynamite Entertainment arrives just before the end of the primaries to announce the entry of our own Independent candidate, Ashley J. Williams, in the all-new one-shot special, Army of Darkness: Ash for President!
He’s faced off against demons in Hell. He’s battled the dead in the future. He’s even combated the armies of darkness in space. But Ash Williams has never gone up against evil in an arena like this: the political arena! From Elliott Serrano, the writer who brought you Ash Saves Obama, comes the off-beat adventure that answers the question: “What if Ash Williams ran for President of the United States?” When the Necronomicon Ex Mortis gives him a cryptic message, Ash Williams enlists the help of a beautiful psychic to help him track down the agent of The Great Darkness, an evil so great that it threatens both humankind and the demon realm. But what happens when the search for truth takes Ash on a trail that he never expected… the campaign trail? Army of Darkness: Ash for President is the one-shot Election Special that America deserves, illustrated with star-spangled flair by artist Diego Galindo.
“The Army of Darkness: Ash for President is a thematic sequel of sorts to my Ash Saves Obama mini-series,” says writer Elliott Serrano. “With Ash Saves Obama, I was poking fun at all the ridiculous merchandising that surrounded Obama’s first term as President. With the new election special, I get to have fun in the political realm and with the wacky things that politicians will often say. No matter what side of the aisle you’re on, both sides have said their fair share of things that are just begging to get poked at.”
“In 2004, we launched our company with the candidate we believed in the most, and that candidate was, of course, Ash Williams,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “Over ten years later, I’d say it paid off well for us. This year’s presidential race has been one of the most talked-about in decades, and casting your vote for Ash this August is sure to pay off for comics readers from both political parties.”
Army of Darkness: Ash for President is 48 pages of fun priced at $5.99, by Elliott Serrano, Diego Galindo, and cover artist Elliot Fernandez! Look for it in the June cover-dated issue of Diamond’s Previews catalog, arriving on shelves on August 3rd!
