Army of Darkness vs. Re-Animator #1

I never would of been able to of pictured this type of cross-over - "Army of Darkness vs Re-Animator?"  But now that I can actually see it.. it looks pretty damn good.

From their recent success of their two previous limited edition series, Dynamite Entertainment will be launching its Army of Darkness license into a monthly series, and they’ll start with a story arc featuring an unexpected crossover with another cult-classic horror property, H.P. Lovecraft’s the Re-Animator.

Here's what they have to say about the upcoming comic:

Written by James Kuhoric with art by Sanford Greene and Scott Kester, according to Dynamite, the first issue finds AoD’s Ash, "...Committed to Arkham Asylum. It’s here that he runs afoul of a rather ghoulish and creepy Herbert West... and the battle of the century begins!"

Fans of the Lovecraft creation know that Herbert West is a scientist obsessed with cheating death. "He discovers a serum that can be injected into the brain of the recently deceased that brings them back to life. But these revived people are no longer our friends, relatives or loved ones. They're adrenaline-driven zombies! Even more unfortunate is the fact that West runs into Ash, The Chosen One, who has a well-earned disdain for the undead!"

Army of Darkness Vs. Re-Animator #1 will feature four different covers shipping in approximately equal increments, by Greene, Nick Bradshaw, J.G. Jones, and Gabrielle Dell'Otto, as well as a "Super-Rare" 1-25 cover by Bradshaw featuring an "homage" to classic slasher monster films!

Dynamite promises future covers by Esad Ribic, Adam Hughes, Billy Tan, John Romita Jr., John Romita Sr., and more.

Sounds cool huh?  Here's a look at the 3 other covers.
