The following exclusive interview with Tim Seeley contains minor SPOILERS for ARMY OF DARKNESS VS HACK/SLASH 1. Go read the book first and then come back to read the responses!
1. Margaret mentioned her and Cassie having jobs. What jobs did they get?
TIM: Ha, Cassie was working as a waitress (having had some experience working at a club back in MFM) while Margaret was working at an office as an administrative assistant. Yes, I thought this through even though it’s never mentioned again.
2. Any specific reason for settling in Coon Rapids, Minnesota?
TIM – Not really, other than the fact that I figured it was far enough out of the way that it’d fit into the retirement plan, as well as being sorta Midwestern, which Cassie likes.
3. Vlad’s mask can still be seen hanging on the wall in two panels. Does this take place before the epilogue, or are the mysterious hands taking the mask… and putting it back?
TIM – Well, that would be telling, now wouldn’t it?
4. The Sam Raimi Oldsmobile (“The Classic”) made an appearance in the book. Are there any other AoD Easter Eggs in there?
TIM – I don’t think there’s any very specific references, though there will be a few laced throughout the series. I’m pretty much an expert in AoD and I’m a general Bruce Campbell fan…so there’ll be some deep cuts in here.
TIM – He was the guy I wanted for this for a long time…I even steered him towards the covers for the regular AoD series to get him some Ash-practice.
6. This issue had covers from you, Ben Templesmith, Stefano Caselli, and Ken Haeser. Where can we see more of Templesmith’s work?
TIM – Ben is all over the place. Currently he’s doing a book at Image called TEN GRAND, but he’s probably best known for his work on 30 DAYS OF NIGHT from IDW. Also, he’s a really cool guy,
