Dynamite Entertainment sent us information and a sneak peek at Eva: Daughter of the Dragon. Fans of Army of Darkness will remember Eva as the monster hunter who fought along side Ash in Army of Darkness #5 – #8 (Ash vs. the Monsters).
Writer Brandon Jerwa described the character and plot as, “Eva is the daughter of everyone’s favorite bloodsucker, Count…Chocula? Blacula? Duckula? Wait, no. Dracula. Count Dracula. She was raised by monks who tried to keep the truth from her for as long as they could, but we all know how that usually works out. In the Army of Darkness story arc, Eva is a monster-hunter in training when she’s sucked forward into present day to face down her old man and his gang of monster followers. My story is set both before and after that little romp, but you absolutely do not have to know anything about the AOD story to enjoy this. I don’t disavow her previous appearance at all, but you’ll see why we don’t have to get hung up on the specifics of it.
“How do we top Eva facing off against Dracula? By having her fight him again! Seriously, though, there is a threat in this book that actually puts Dracula’s top-of-the-heap position into question. This is no team-up between our heroine and her evil dad, though; it’s a mutual threat to both of them.”
Eva: Daughter of The Dragon arrives in August for $4.99.
