    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Mark Verheiden
    Pencils: John Bolton
    Covers: John Bolton

    "We're gonna get you! We're gonna get you!"

    Writer Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, My Name Is Bruce) and illustrator John Bolton (God Save the Queen, Harlequin Valentine) present an exciting EXPANSION on the classic horror film that introduced us to the powerful Book of the Dead, the relentlessly violent deadites, and Ash-one resilient, blood-stained survivor. Now an iconic horror hero, relive Ash's first visit to the cabin that brought him face to face with the delectably deranged deadites who possessed his girlfriend and friends . . . and turned "the perfect place to get laid" into a house of fear and fury. Return to the original nonstop gore-fest and experience the thrills, gags, and gagging anew, with unexpected new directions, additional scenes, and Bolton's jaw-dropping new paintings.

    This is a four-issue, fully authorized celebration of the original Evil Dead film that started Raimi and Campbell down their paths of gory glory, brought to you by Dark Horse's Verheiden/Bolton storytelling dream team!

    The ultimate illustrated experience in grueling terror!
