He's faced off against demons in Hell. He's battled the dead in the future. He's even combated the armies of darkness in space. But Ash Williams has never gone up against evil in an arena like this: the political arena! From the writer who brought you "Hail to the Queen, Baby" and "Ash Saves Obama" comes the off-beat adventure that answers the question: "What if Ash Williams ran for President of the United States?" When the Necronomicon Ex Mortis gives him a cryptic message, Ash Williams enlists the help of a beautiful psychic to help him track down the agent of the "Great Darkness", an evil so great that it threatens both humankind and the demon realm. But what happens when the search for truth takes Ash on a trail that he never expected... the campaign trail?

    All in all, this is a great funny book. Will it win an Eisner? No. Will it encourage a third party candidate to enter the fray late in the presidential race? Maybe. But what it will definitely do is make you laugh. And laughing about what's on the news is always better than being embarrassed by it. Read Full Review

    Overall, Army of Darkness: Ash for President is a decent read. The plot is easy to follow and enjoyable, but I do wish it would have dug a little deeper. The work attempts to tackle America's current political landscape in a comical way. At times the crass nature of some of the dialogue undermines from that commentary. I still believe that fans of Ash will enjoy the work, so look for it on August 31st. Read Full Review

    Allindo and Pantazis make a great team, with crisp, well-defined scenes enhanced by a strong palette and dramatic use of shadows. The pages pop and action scenes are composed well, allowing Ash to do what he does best -- namely, kick demon ass. If youre looking to see Ash Williams get on the campaign trail and defeat evil baddies, this book is worth a read. If youre seeking out a traditional Ash Williams adventure or some strong political satire, youll have to look elsewhere. Read Full Review
