And as the survivors of Freddy and Jason's murder sprees congregate, the short-lived reunion is shattered by the violent arrival of Jason Voorhees. But when a mysterious stranger arrives to aid in the battle, Jason must confront the one man who has not only survived his murderous rampages but has also "killed him" in the past.

Freddy Krueger has become one with the Necronomicon, and he has the full power of the book at his disposal – including control of the Deadites. Making a Faustian bargain with Jason Voorhees, Freddy promises to return everything he's lost if Jason will be a general in Freddy's army. Will Washington D.C. fall to such nefarious foes?

Zombies, Deadites, and demons – oh my! The army of the dead is loose in Washington, D.C. and no one is safe from their rampage. As the capital city burns, Freddy Krueger's devious plan starts to come together. No longer is he limited to the kids from Springwood or Crystal Lake. Now the world is his Elm Street, and the streets will flow with blood. Jason Voorhees leads the dead in the sacking of D.C. that cuts down everyone from shoppers to senators.
Things are looking grim for Ash's Nightmare Warriors as Tommy Jarvis and Jacob Johnson are taken captive, leaving a depleted group to figure out how to stop the storm of slaughter taking place in the streets. Pulled into Freddy's nightmare, they are given an ultimatum: "Bring the Necronomicon to me or I'll gut your friends while you watch." It's all-out Armageddon in the White House when Freddy takes his place on the highest seat in the land…the Oval Office.Co-published with Dynamite Entertainment.
