The comic book miniseries ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'' and its sequel, ''The Nightmare Warriors'', follow up on the events of ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]] [[Film/FreddyVsJason vs.]] [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]]'' and tosses [[Franchise/EvilDead Ashley J. Williams]] into the mix to create a horror crossover that fans could only have dreamed about before its publication. Creator/DCComics, Dynamite Entertainment, and Wildstorm published both series from 2007 to 2009, with James Kuhoric (writer) and Jason Craig (illustrator) helming both series. Kuhoric based the original series on the original ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'' film treatment by Jeff Katz; Katz himself helped pen ''The Nightmare Warriors'', which he and Kuhoric designed as a horror film parallel to DCís various Crisis events, right down to combining the three franchisesí continuities and turning the Nightmare Warriors into a Justice League-style Ďsuperteamí.

* ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash''

After the events of ''Freddy vs. Jason'', Freddy Krueger manipulates Jason Voorhees into retrieving [[Franchise/EvilDead the Necronomicon ex Mortis]], which Freddy plans to use to revive himself and cause more carnage. Ash happens to have moved to Crystal Lake for the opening of a new Super Ultra Mega S-Mart, which serves as his cover while he keeps his own search for the Necronomicon alive. Once the triumvirate of terror meet, chaos ensues.

* ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors''

Following the events of the previous series, the United States government resurrects both Freddy and Jason in an attempt to exploit their supernatural powers. The government soon discovers that it canít control the titans of terror, who now seek to take over the world using the Necronomicon. In the meantime, Ash stumbles upon the existence of the Nightmare Warriors, a support group for survivors of the two killersí supernatural rampages. Once Ash and his new allies learn of the resurrection of Freddy and Jason, the Nightmare Warriors make it their mission to stop the deadly duo once and for all.

* ShoutOut:
** ''Potentially'' in the first issue of ''Nightmare Warriors''. As the government agents surround the ice pond where Jason was dumped at the end of the first series, one agent calls the applications of an "un-killable soldier" more plausible than the Necronomicon; at the beginning of ''Jason X'', the military wanted to take Voorhees into custody (instead of putting him into permanent cryogenic suspension) to study his seeming immortality for their own purposes.
** Legit shout-outs in ''Nightmare Warriors'' include a scene from ''Army of Darkness'' which shows up in a dream sequence, Ash is listening to the Music/AliceCooper song "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)" during a car drive, and there's even a reference to Hypnocil.
** Also, in the original ''Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'', during Freddy and Ash's first confrontation, Freddy makes a wise-crack about playing "pin the tail on the Elvis impersonator". This could very well be a reference to Bruce Campbell playing not only Ash in the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series, but also Music/ElvisPresley in the movie ''Film/BubbaHotep''.
