Countdown to Halloween 2015 Day 16: Alice Cooper vs Chaos! #1

This is one of those posts that I could have written last month but I saved it up for the Countdown to Halloween 2015. Alice Cooper vs Chaos! #1 from Dynamite Comics rocks on so many levels. The cover features Alice among several characters from the Chaos Comics including Purgatori, Chastity, Evil Ernie and Smiley.

Alice Cooper moonlights as the Lord of Nightmares and something is amiss in the other world:

Chastity and Lane Silver are hunting a big baddie underneath Denver, Colorado and things don't go well for them:

They meet up with Purgatori, which is really not a good thing:

Meanwhile in Roseville, Minnesota, Rashad and Vex from the Chosen gets closer, which is weird considering he is a zombie, moments before the rest of the gang shows up:

Vex becomes possessed by Draum-Njorun and recites part of the lyrics from Alice Cooper's Welcome To My Nightmare:

Finally, we catch up with Evil Ernie in Box Butte County, Nebraska:

I won't reveal the ending here but this issue sets up the rest of the series pretty good. While I never read many of the original Choas! Comics from the 1990s, I am familiar with them mostly thanks to reading articles and previews in Wizard (remember that magazine?). I highly recommend reading Alice Cooper vs Chaos! #1.
