Disappointed that the tantalizing Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash movie looks like it will never happen? Well, don't worry, because DC Comics has you covered. Capitalizing on the enormous grassroots popularity of the concept among fanboys, DC has taken the initiative and launched a six-part limited series that picks up right where Freddy vs. Jason left off, and throws everyone's favorite chainsaw-toting sales clerk in for good measure.
Here's the synopsis from DCcomics.com:
In the bloody wake of the hit movie Freddy vs. Jason, Freddy Krueger finds himself clinging to the last shred of fear that allows him to exist…inside the demented mind of Jason Voorhees. Unwillingly bonded together, the murderous pair must seek out the Necronomicon, the only solution to their mutual torment. Nothing can stop this unholy alliance -- except the wisecracking, chainsaw-wielding Ash, aimed at destroying the Book of the Dead once and for all!
Written by James Kuhoric, with art by Jason Craig and covers by J. Scott Campbell (no relation to Bruce), the series is put out by DC's Wildstorm imprint. Issue #1 came out a month ago, and issue #2 just hit last week. Here are the street dates for the remaining four:
- #3: December 26
- #4: January 23
- #5: February 27
- #6: April 3
