The new anthology mini-series will feature original stories set in the ED2U from Jeff Mariotte & Marsheila Rockwell, Ivan Cohen, Justin Peniston, Georgia Ball and Frank Hannah, the writer of Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn.

The new mini-series focuses on the open-ended questions from the movie Evil Dead 2.

Space Goat Press Release:

“The ED2U is a rich, untapped place that spans back to the  darkest beginnings of human history,” said SGP CEO Shon Bury.

“The Ex-Mortis disappeared in the 13th Century, and we didn’t see it again until Ash turned on the tape recorder. That’s a biggap in time that’s packed with demons, Deadites, Kandarian history, and reanimated hands.”

For example, in Ivan Cohen’s “Deadite Man Walking” a wheelchair-bound ancient languages professor finds pages of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis. It gives him just enough knowledge to make him dangerous after granting him the use of his legs. Frank Hannah has two stories in the first issue. The first one, “The Lottery,” hauls Ash back to ancient Sumeria and the land of human sacrifice, while the second, “Das Book,” features Nazis and demons.
