Apparently, October 5 is unofficial ‘Wacky Comic Crossover Day.” This week, a few notable mashups in the comics world began, bringing together disparate heroes for zany new adventures. We had a read of all the crossover series out today to let you see which team-ups were worth your time.
It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Ash vs Evil Dead here at io9. It’s one of the funniest, goriest shows ever to grace the airwaves, and after all, it’s based on one of the greatest horror trilogies of all time. With season two kicking off this weekend, we’ve been thinking about what we’d like to see in the new…
Good news, you primitive screwheads: At today’s Ash vs. Evil Dead press room, executive producer Rob Tapert confirmed that cult classic Army of Darkness would play a part in the show’s second season.
Sure, in real life, Lucy Lawless and Bruce Campbell have already teamed up in the new Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV show. But now their heroic counterparts are uniting in the pages of comic books, for a new series spinning out of their current ongoings at Dynamite Entertainment. Expect lots of glorious undead killing!
Don’t have Starz? Good news, as you can still watch the excellent season premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead for free. The channel is allowing people who don’t currently subscribe—which is a lot of people—to check out the show here on its streaming online media service, Starz Play. Warning: You will very much consider…
Every morning when I wake up, I thank the deities I do not believe in that somehow the Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV series is actually a thing that’s happening, and that it looks so damn good despite it being more than 20 years since Army of Darkness premiered. This brief but excellent new trailer has only increased my…
And I mean “bloody” both in the British sense of “extremely” and the more traditional definition, “covered in blood.” Ash Vs. Evil Dead looks fantastic— funny, gory, and delightfully messed-up—and clearly Bruce Campbell hasn’t missed a beat since he last strapped on Ash’s chainsaw hand. Can’t wait til Halloween!
The king returns. Hail to the king, baby.
Pretty much all we've known about Starz' Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV series is that it would star Bruce Campbell, and that's all we've needed to know. We're in. But now Campbell has actually started describing the show's plot — you know, beyond the "Vs. Evil Dead" part — and it still sounds pretty damn great.
You're about to go back in time, but you don't know when and you are allowed to bring just one item with you. What item do you choose and why?
Uh, remember how when Sam Raimi announced at Comic-Con that he and his brother Ted were working on an Evil Dead TV series and that Bruce Campbell was somehow involved? And I figured he could be doing anything from starring to producing? Turns out it's the former. Groovy.
Tucked away in the Last of Us movie panel, like a demon under the floorboard of a cabin in the woods, director Sam Raimi revealed he and his brother Ted are attempting to turn his iconic horror movie franchise Evil Dead into a TV series... with Bruce Campbell involved.
Crossovers are an everyday occurrence in the comics industry, where Spider-Man hangs with Wolverine, Batman stops by Teen Titans HQ, and Aliens battle Predators. But not all crossovers make as much sense as these do. Here are a dozen of them that aren't necessarily bad, but they're all definitely weird.
Oh, for @#$%'s sake. Bruce Campbell has told everyone that despite the recent rumors about a long-awaited sequel to Army of Darkness, you shouldn't believe them. What makes this a bit obnoxious is that the person who started this most recent batch of rumors was Bruce Campbell.
The sequel to the Evil Dead remake may be (evil) dead. Director Fede Alvarez and his co-writer Rodo Sayagues have confirmed they won't be back for the sequel — which seems extra weird, given that a chummy Alvarez was very recently confirming that Sam Raimi would direct Army of Darkness 2. Hmm.
Last week, Bruce Campbell announced that Army of Darkness 2 was in the works, but the internet — having heard so many rumors about a sequel for so many years — dared not to let themselves get too excited. But now the Evil Dead's remake director Fede Alvarez has announced that Sam Raimi will be helming the long-awaited…
While speaking at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Bruce Campbell confirmed that there will be an Army of Darkness 2 and he will be in it.
Don't believe me? Watch this video and you'll be completely convinced that Sam Raimi remade his 1992 classic too (spoilers for Oz, by the way — and Army of Darkness too, I guess, if you were still waiting to see it or something). I tell you, Oz would have been a lot better if James Franco had a chainsaw hand.
There were plenty of toys for collectors in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, but if you wanted the best toys, you turned to McFarlane. The founder of Image and creator of Spawn, decided to make his own toy company in 1994 and the results were nothing short of spectacular.... for a while, at least.
