When Dejah Thoris and Vampirella do a crossover, you think you’ve seen it all. Guess again, Dear Spoilerites, as Dynamite Entertainment has announced the upcoming crossover that will make you think you are seeing double in Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep #1.
In Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep, Ash embarks on a soul-searching road trip to Texas on a hunch that Elvis Presley may still be alive and kicking (and supposedly vanquished a mummy)! What follows is a series of universe-spanning events that involve an Elvis jumpsuit with special time-travel abilities, a trip to 70’s Vegas, plus the reveal of an evil new Book of the Dead, the Necronomicon Ho-Tep.
The mini-series will be written by Scott Duval, with art by Vincenzo Federici. This is going to be all kinds of messed up, especially if the creators take Ash and Elvis into the weird pervy side that we’ve seen in the other Bubba Ho-Tep series.
“Being a huge fan of the character of Ash, and by extension, actor Bruce Campbell, I was instantly drawn to the movie Bubba Ho-Tep, based on an original story by the great Joe R. Lansdale, and starring Campbell as Elvis. Immediately upon release, I added it to my DVD collection, and I would group it with Army of Darkness because it felt like a companion piece to it,” said author Scott Duvall in a press release from Dynamite Entertainment. “Often viewing them in close succession, I knew the Ash and Elvis team-up would go together like peanut butter and banana. These two worlds already fit so well together in tone, it made it totally plausible that they could co-exist on the same plane. Wanting to see what it would be like if Ash and Elvis interact is a big part of what sparked this, and so I’m thrilled we’ll get to finally see that in these pages. ”
Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep #1 is scheduled to arrive in February 2019.
