Dynamite is offering this contest as a thank you to both the fans and retailers for their overwhelming response to Army of Darkness #13, which gave fans a sneak peek at Ash's welcoming committee to the Marvel Universe as a special page drawn by Marvel Zombies artist Sean Phillips along with colorist June Chung! The first run of Army of Darkness #13 has sold out at the distributor level (Diamond Comic Distributors), and a limited edition variant of the Sean Phillips cover is scheduled to fill standing orders and is available for reorder. The limited edition variant of the: ARMY OF DARKNESS #13 (NOV068185).

The crossover event of '07, Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness is a five-issue limited series scheduled for a March release -- The Marvel Zombies come face-to-face with Dynamite Entertainment's Ash from the Army of Darkness! Ash has faced legions of the undead before, but never like this…as he lands in the heart of New York just as the Zombie outbreak begins! See how his actions help turn more heroes and villains into Zombies! Under the watchful eye of Marvel Zombie guru Robert Kirkman, this might just be the comic event of 2007! Plus: The entire series will feature classic "homage" covers from painter Arthur Suydam!

Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness will act as a direct prequel - fitting seamlessly into the Marvel Zombies mythos - to last year's smash Marvel Zombies series which featured "dynamite" covers by Arthur Suydam, crisp scripts by Robert Kirkman and fantastic art by Sean Philips and colorist June Chung!

Marvel Zombies followed the events in Mark Millar and Greg Land's Ultimate Fantastic Four #24. The final pages of DYNAMITE'S Army of Darkness #13 by writer James Kuhoric, teases at the upcoming event. So the groundwork has been laid out through the Ultimate Universe, the Marvel Universe, and now Dynamite's Army of Darkness Universe!
