    FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH #1-4 ALL AVAILABLE IN NEW PRINTINGS

    FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH issues #1 through #4 of the 6-issue miniseries co-published by DC Comics and Dynamite Entertainment, are all now sold out and have gone back to press for a new, second printing which are available for reorder.

    “For anyone that may have missed out on the biggest buzz-book cross-over of 2006 AND 2007, you’re in luck, because we’re going back to press on the first four issues,” exclaimed Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. “And if things continue at this pace, we may just have to convince the powers that be that we need a sequel for this runaway hit! While the fans were the ones who made the series a success, it could not have been done without the hard work of the creative team, as they knocked this out of the park in a story that could be one of the most important horror cross-overs ever!”

    “The fan response to FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH has been beyond my wildest dreams. It’s incredibly fulfilling to see fans embrace this story with such enthusiasm and I’m very proud to have been a part of it. With both the NIGHTMARE and FRIDAY film franchises being relaunched - and this series acting as a direct sequel to FREDDY VS. JASON - it feels like we’re now acting as the stewards of the classic film continuity,” said series writer Jeff Katz. “That’s both a huge responsibility and a tremendous honor. While I wish we could have gotten this story on film, it seems highly fitting that it will live on in perpetuity in comic books, the very format that originally inspired so much of the ‘Versus’ concept. Kudos to James, Jason, Thomas and the folks at DC, Wildstorm and Dynamite on a job very well done. I know that for all three characters the best is yet to come.”

    “Seeing the fan response to Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash has been an amazing and humbling thing. We’ve watched demand grow with each issue as the first four comics immediately sold out and were supported with second printings to keep the story accessible to new fans. Even now as we close in on the release of the final issue, retailers and consumers can get copies of the entire run to continue introducing new people to the story,” said series writer James Kuhoric. “FvJvA proved once again that the comic book medium is perfect for developing and accentuating film and television properties. As a creator you just can’t ask for more than to be a part of a project that sparks so much interest and passion into the hearts of hardcore comic readers and horror fans. This book has been a major success thanks to the people behind it – Jeff Katz, Jason Craig, Thomas Mason, Scott Peterson, Hank Kanalz, Joe Rybandt, and Nick Barrucci. Take a bow guys, you deserve it.”

    FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH #1 -4 Second Printing reprints the stories by writers Jeff Katz and James Kuhoric and artist Jason Craig. Each new printing features a new version of the art by J. Scott Campbell (issue #1) and by Eric Powell (issues #2 - #4).
