    Proclamation: Solid writing and equally competent art working hard to inject some life into a cult classic albeit somewhat tired storyline. Read Full Review

    So, as a comic, its probably best for Evil Dead fans. Theyll probably relish the opportunity to see a high-quality artist work on their pet series, instead of the dodgy art that usually shows up on the various Army of Darkness series. But its not going to surpass the film anytime soon, unless theres some sort of turnabout in the next few issues. Myself, I dont see much reason to keep reading. Now if they got Eric Powell to adapt Evil Dead II, that might be a different story. Read Full Review

    The art is beautifuly painted by John Bolton (he did the Army of Darkness adaptation as well). For some of the panels it seems like he painted over the film, which are very well done, I might add. One thing to notice is that only Bruce Campbells likeness was used. The rest of the cast doesnt look the same as they did in the movie. Im also nitpicking here, but the wardrobe wore by the rest of the characters is different. Read Full Review
