Bruce Campbell Writing SGT. ROCK VS. THE ARMY OF THE DEAD Comic Series For DC

Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell is writing a six-issue limited series titled DC Horror Presents – Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead. This sounds like a cool project and there’s no doubt that Campbell is going to have a lot of fun with it. It’s described as an “action-packed, terrifying adventure.”

The story is set in Berlin, 1944. “The Nazis are flanked on all fronts by the combined Allied forces, and defeat seems inevitable. In a last-ditch effort to turn the tide of the war, Hitler and his team of evil scientists create a serum that resurrects their dead soldiers, creating an army of the dead even stronger than they were in life.”

In response, Sgt. Rock, “hero of the European Theatre, and his Easy Company find themselves dispatched into enemy territory to face off against the strangest, most horrific enemies they’ve encountered yet: Nazi Zombies.”

The comic will consist of six issues and the art for it is created by Eisner and Harvey Award-Winning Artist Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets) and he “brings the battlefield to gruesome life as the Easy Company tears across Europe.”

Sgt. Rock first debuted in DC’s comics in 1959, in Our Army at War #83. Sgt. Franklin John Rock and his Easy Company became a mainstay of DC’s popular war comics. Created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Joe Kubert, Sgt. Rock was soldier of almost preternatural ability and grit, battling Nazis across Europe and Northern Africa during World War II.

DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. The Army of the Dead will be released in September 27th. Check out all four covers below:
