Xena Warrior Princess/Army of Darkness: What, Again? is a four-issue limited series from Dynamite Entertainment and released in 2008. It is the second Army/Xena crossover from Dynamite.
Xena, Gabrielle, and Autolycus are brought to the 21st Century to help Ash battle a swarm of Deadites outside his S-Mart store. During the battle, the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis flies off to the local library. In the library, a hooded Deadite almost gets their hands on the Book of The Dead, but Ash says "Choco, Bamalama, Ditko" and a vortex opens, sucking up Ash, Xena, Gabrielle, and Autolycus inside. The vortex also pulled in some books, causing Ash and the others to go inside the stories the books contained, such as A Christmas Carol, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, except now Deadites are integrated into the story. They escape the book worlds and arrive back to the present, it has been overrun with Deadites. The group is greeted by Solan, the future son of Gabrielle and either Autolycus or Ash. Solan takes them to The Wise Man who works in Universe-Mart, a shopping center for Deadites and Demons. With his help, the group confronts the hooded figure from earlier: Deadite Xena. The team fights the super-powered Deadite Xena and Deadite Gabrielle, and fix the present, but because the present was fixed, Solan begins to fade from reality. Before he is gone, he whispers to Gabrielle who his real father is: Ash.
