ARMY REBOOT: Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Army of Darkness will receive “a complete overhaul” in a new ongoing series, Ash and the Army of Darkness, as imagined by Steve Niles.

<“We start with the last frame of the film and then go right to the next,” Niles said. “It’s a wild ride and I think fans of the film will be very happy because I am bringing back a lot of what made the movie so fun.  My run of Ash and the Army of Darkness takes place almost entirely in the 1300’s setting. That was what made Army of Darkness stand apart.  I’m hoping readers agree.”

The book’s artist will be Dennis Calero.

LEGENDS OF RED SONJA: Dynamite Entertainment has announced Legends of Red Sonja, a four-issue anthology miniseries featuring a lineup of female writers, including  Marjorie M.

HARLEY QUINN MONTHLY: DC Comics has announced an ongoing Harley Quinn series that will be written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti and will begin in November.

 

DC Comics did not reveal the artist for the series.

 

“Harley is a complex character and we are going to build on her background, motivations and her home and supporting cast. Sort of what we did with Power Girl but with a mix of a bit more homicidal maniac added in,” Palmiotti said. “She is the hero in her own story. What happens, who gets killed, what house gets burned down and so on, well, thats just part of her story. She looks at the world differently and we will be building on that and looking even closer on her past and what makes her tick. There are so many layers to this fantastic character that we cannot wait to explore.”
