Horror fans awaiting more news on Evil Dead Now, the next film in the Evil DeadArmy of Darkness movie series have something to look forward to on June 17 when Dynamite Entertainment will release Death to The Army of Darkness #3, the latest in Dynamite's Evil Dead/Army of Darkness comic book franchise.

This series pits Ash and his allies against Lord Deadite, an unspeakable evil they must travel to Ancient Egypt to defeat – with predictably comedic horror effect.

As a franchise, the Evil Dead film series spans a series of original films that kicked off with The Evil Dead and which includes 1987's Evil Dead 2 and 1992's Army of Darkness, as well as a 2013 soft reboot that advanced the film series to the modern day, also titled Evil Dead, to which the upcoming Evil Dead Now will serve as a direct sequel. A TV series, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, ran for three seasons on Starz.

Here's the solicitation for Death to The Army of Darkness #3:
