Dynamite Entertainment has announced it has tapped writer Justin Jordon to pen Evil Ernie: Godeater, an all new series celebrating the 25th anniversary of Chaos! Comics’ leading madman.

In Evil Ernie: Godeater #1, something bad is coming. Something that could kill Heaven, Hell, and Earth itself: The Godeater. And the only thing standing its way is… Evil Ernie? Face it, we’re probably all screwed! Dynamite Entertainment proudly welcomes Justin Jordan, the Harvey Award-winning writer of such horror hits as The Strange Talent of Luther Strode and Shadowman, as he debuts the all-new “Godeater” storyline, an event so epic in scope, it promises to shake the very foundations of the Chaos! universe!

“The original Evil Ernie series was one of the very first comics I saw that wasn’t about superheroes and wasn’t intended for an all-ages audience, and it changed how I look at comics. So being able to actually write a character who changed my life twenty-odd years ago is actually cooler than I can easily sum up,” said Jordan. “I am doing my level best to make sure that fans of Ernie are getting something they have never seen before, while still being the character they’ve loved for the past couple of decades. I hope that they think it’s awesome and horrifying, and that I got the character right.”

Joining Jordan is artist Colton Worley, who you may remember from his work on The Shadow, Vampirella, and the Complete Dracula series.

“Hopefully fans will like what I’ve done with Ernie here, because I’ve had a lot of fun working on this book. Psycho-monsters, the undead, and a talking button — what’s not to like?”

Evil Ernie: Godeater has a 22-page main story, as well as backup material including an interview with Justin Jordan, Ernie designs by Worley, and the first chapter of “The Ditch Bitch,” a serialized back up feature written by Keith Davidsen and Cezar Razek.

Evil Ernie: Godeater arrives on August 3rd.
