Space Goat Publishing calls all Evil Dead fans to raise their hands – and chainsaws – for Evil Dead Days. Running from October 12th thru October 31st, Evil Dead Days will have Evil Dead 2 comic releases, host Evil Dead live-tweets, and hold an Evil Dead 2 photo contest.
“Because of the success of our Evil Dead 2 Board Game Kickstarter, we had to delay the release of some of our upcoming Evil Dead 2 comics,” Space Goat President Shon Bury said. “But in order to make it up to our loyal Evil Dead fans and comic retailers, we wanted to put on a big celebration of all things Evil Dead.”
The cornerstone of the event is the Evil Dead Days contest put on by Space Goat Productions. Evil Dead fans just have to post a picture of themselves with Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2 comics on Facebook or Twitter with #evildeaddays. Space Goat will pick their top 3 favorites out of all entries to win Evil Dead 2 prizes. First place is a deluxe copy of Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game (valued at $80), Second Place is Frank Hannah’s Evil Dead 2 graphic novel trilogy (Valued at $58.97), while Third place is a $25 gift card for MerchGoat.com.
Space Goat Publishing will also host Twitter viewing events of all the Evil Dead movies where fans can join in. Space Goat will be holding the online events at the following times:
On October 19th at 7PM PST: Evil Dead (1981), on October 21st at 7PM PST: Evil Dead 2, on October 26th at 7PM: Army of Darkness and on October 27th at 7PM: Evil Dead (2013). Fans just need to follow @gospacegoat and tweet using the hashtag #evildeaddays to join in.
Finally, Space Goat Publishing will debut three new Evil Dead 2 comics on the first day of the celebration.
