News: Ash vs Dracula June 23, 2006Posted by HC in Independant, News.
It's a marketing opportunity missed. This week's Army of Darkness issue 8 sees Ash taking on old Dracula himself. Groovy yes, by why, oh why haven't we got a Ash vs Dracula flash on the cover.You wouldn't even know that Drac's onboard from most of the varient covers. Saying that, you also wouldn't know that Frankenstein's monster turns up with a bunch of mummies. Bizarre.
Anyway, for a quick preview of the battle of the month click here and read on for the official blurb from Dynamite:
He's dismembered Deadites in every form but never faced a creature born of undead legend. Gathered from the darkest and most remote corners of the globe, the monsters have assembled under the vengeful hand of Dracula to lay siege to the new world. New York is being bled dry by a plague of vampires and Ash must battle the inner wolf, the soulless man, the curse of the ancients, and the Prince of Blood himself before they turn the city that never sleeps into a hotbed of the living dead. Only a bumbling second fiddle monster hunter and our own chainsaw wielding hero can recover the artifact with the power to destroy the vampires forever. But Ash’s disbelief in the monsters of old may be the gateway to his downfall and their ultimate victory. Grab your crucifix and the spare shotgun shells — this is one over-the-top monster mash you don't want to miss! Also features the first appearance of Dracula’s daughter — don’t miss it!
First apperance of Dracula's daughter? What about Lilith or Countess Marya Zaleska? How many daughters has the Lord of the Damned got? He's an inhuman cad that's what he is.
Look out for a review soon.
