Army of Darkness star Bruce Campbell is returning to Evil Dead with a new DC miniseries starring Sgt. Rock, DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock Vs. The Army of the Dead.

DC announced Campbell will pen the new six-issue miniseries, which features art by Eduardo Risso and marks the latest edition to the DC Horror Presents line. "The story begins in Berlin, 1944," DC said of the series. "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. 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."

DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock Vs. The Army of the Dead #1 features a "Duffel Bag Gore" variant cover by Frank Quitely that DC has dubbed "too gruesome to even show" fans at this time. Additional variant covers come from Charlie Adlard, Francesco Francavilla, Chris Mooneyham and Pia Guerra, with main cover art provided by Gary Frank.

Created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Joe Kubert, Sgt. Rock first appeared in DC Comics in 1959's Our Army at War #83. The character is known for battling Nazis across Europe and North Africa during World War II when fighting alongside his unit, Easy Company. In 1977, Sgt. Rock became such a popular character that DC changed the name of Our Army at War to Sgt. Rock, which ran until July 1988.
