While we’re unlikely to see Ash blasting the scourge of Crystal Lake and the Springwood Slasher on the big screen, the battle royale is happening right now in comic book form. Fans of crazy horror movie mash-ups are sure to get a kick out of Wildstorm and Dynamite Entertainment’s Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors. A sequel to their smash hit horror crossover event. Marvel Zombies artist Arthur Suydam is again on cover duty, supplying fun images like the scene above of the terrible threesome brawling on the Capitol lawn.
The sequel picks up six months after the first series,
finding a power-hungry bureaucrat unleashing the evil denizens of the
Necronomicon — which just happens to include the pesky spirit of Freddy
Krueger himself. Meanwhile, beneath the waters of Crystal Lake, another
unstoppable killing machine has risen to begin his reign of terror
anew. It’s up to Ash to come out of
retirement and bust some bad guy skulls.
Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors
#1 (which hits stores in June) is once again written by Jeff Katz and
James Kuhoric, with art by Jason Craig. Let’s hope it lives up to that
