Evil Dead the Comic

Postby darkjedijaina on Wed Feb 28, 2007 4:41 pm

Mark Verheiden is adapting and expanding on the movie for an 88 page, fully painted, four issue comic book series due out in late 2007. John Bolton is the artist.

From Mark's blog:
I visited the lovely Dark Horse offices in Milwaukie Oregon last week, where I got to see the almost finished artwork for our EVIL DEAD adaptation/expansion. I know I've posted this before, but artist John Bolton is absolutely pulling out all the stops on this baby. Every page is a full color painting, and John's renderings of the demonic goings-ons are absolutely horrific.

Remember, this isn't just a straight adaptation, but an authorized "expansion" of the first movie, with new scenes. For instance: for those familiar with the film, there's a sequense where the Scotty character runs from the shack, only to return battered and broken. Well, for the first time you're going to see exactly what happened to poor Scotty in the woods. And it isn't pretty!

Finally, for those comic fans who are concerned about scheduling, 3 1/2 issues of the 4 issue series are in-house, done, finished, complete! So when this series is finally solicited, you're going to get four slabs of on-time, monthly hell-on-Earthness. Beautiful art, Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead and timeliness! Is this a great world or what?


I'm uber-excited about this.

With John Bolton drawing this comic, I hear Sam Raimi is interested in being the new ambassador to the UN.
