Dynamite Invites You to the Army of Darkness Wedding

That's right. Ash is getting hitched!

Dynamite is proud to announce that Ash is going to tie the knot this upcoming July in Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched #1. Written by the best-selling comic writer, Steve Niles and interiors by Nacho Tenorio, this monumental event comes with covers by the who’s who of comic artists today: Jae Lee, Lucio Parrillo, Francesco Francavilla, Nick Bradshaw, Arthur Suydam, and Stephanie Buscema!

In Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched #1, Ash and Sheila are reunited and Ash vows they will never be separated again. Can evil stop evil? This will be the question Ash has to answer, now that he has unleashed the Faceless Man on the land.

“I think fans of the films will really enjoy what we're doing in Ash & the Army of Darkness,” says Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched writer Steve Niles. “It was a dream come true for me to create the sequel we never got and I hope fans enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Now we head into the next chapter, the marriage of Ash and Sheila. This is pretty huge for the AoD universe because it means Ash is going to stay in the Dark Ages and be a father and husband. It's going to be a very strange and fun trip.”

“Ash has always been a very important character at Dynamite, given Army of Darkness was our first book launched back in July of 2004,” says Dynamite CEO / Publisher Nick Barrucci. “We’ve had a great relationship with MGM over the last 10 years and are grateful for their support and our ability to continue with such an iconic character and a great license. As we continue to celebrate our 10th Anniversary in July, it was very important to us that Steve Niles, someone who is an incredible talent, would be the writer of this milestone story continuing his stellar work from Ash and the Army of Darkness, and be the person to write such a defining moment in the life of Ash!”

Steve Niles is an American comic book writer and novelist, known for works such as 30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre, Simon Dark, Mystery Society, and Batman: Gotham County Line. He is credited among other contemporary writers as bringing horror comics back to prominence, authoring such works as 30 Days of Night, its sequel, Dark Days, and Criminal Macabre. Steve currently writes Ash and the Army of Darkness for Dynamite Entertainment.

Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' May Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release on July 9, 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched #1 with their local comic book retailers. Army of Darkness: Ash Gets Hitched #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

@maddpanda531:

Oh don't remind me of that Batwoman can't be married bull crap because of scared to take risks DC. Like how a main continuity Lantern can't be gay.

Deadpool got married so basically everyone but Batwoman can get married.

I so hope there will be more couples getting married in comics as a whole. Plus this seems like it could be awesome it has a great writer attached.
