WildStorm


WildStorm, an offshoot of publisher DC Comics, picked up New Line Cinema’s “House of Horror” license in October 2006. WildStorm published an eight issue series for A Nightmare on Elm Street and followed with a one-shot, New Line Cinema’s Tales of Horror. Popular comics writer Chuck Dixon wrote the main series with art by Kevin West, Tony Harris, Jim Clark, Joel Gomez, Don Ho, and Ben Oliver.

In 2007, WildStorm teamed with Dynamite Entertainment to publish a direct sequel to the hit film Freddy vs. Jason: Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash. The sequel’s premise teamed villains Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees against Evil Dead/Army of Darkness hero Ash Williams and was based on the film treatment by Jeff Katz. WildStorm released Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash as a six-issue mini-series. It was written by James Kuhoric with art by Jason Craig and J. Scott Campbell. The creative team followed with another sequel in 2009 titled Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors.
