Army of Darkness is getting a new sequel (sort of)

This ... is my BOOMSTICK. Part 2. 

Author of 30 Days of Night Steve Niles is bringing the adventures of Ash to Dynamite Comics with Ash and the Army of Darkness. This story will act as a true sequel and tell the story of what happened directly after the film ended. As per Steve Niles himself:

What I’m doing with Ash and the Army of Darkness is a complete reboot. We start and the last frame of the film and then go right to the next.  It’s a wild ride and I think fans of the film will be very happy because I am bringing back a lot of what made the movie so fun.  My run of Ash and the Army of Darkness takes place almost entirely in the 1300′s setting. That was what made Army of Darkness stand apart.  I’m hoping readers agree.

So it sounds like Ash and company won't last very long in the present (er ... '90s) day, but be transported back in time once more. As you'll see in the gallery below, though, things are even less hospitable when Ash returns. And an old ally becomes a bitter enemy.
