The superstar creator of the hit Image Comics series Killadelphia brings his supernatural horror chops to one of the genre's most (in)famous characters. Ashley Joanna Williams finds himself this time in late 70s New York City. In a less cleaned up era, that means gangs tussle for every block in the South Bronx. And these particular gangs model themselves after zombies and vampires. Things only get even more out of control when they find the one and only Necronomicon!

Barnes is joined in this horror flashback romp by artist Tom Garcia (Pathfinder, Hellraiser), colorist Dinei Ribero, and letterer Troy Peteri. This crew assembles togeth more

    ARMY OF DARKNESS 1979 #2 captures the sights, sounds, and the spirit of 1970s NYC ala The Warriors (1979) as Ash and his new friends make their way through a gauntlet of gangs and Deadites. The writing succeeds in capturing the look and feel of 70s NYC and the Ash Williams character equally well. And the art practically pumps tough-guy swagger into every panel. Read Full Review

    The self-aware tone puts nearly all of these elements beyond effect as it's unclear who this joke is being played upon, perhaps the reader. Read Full Review

    Good to see Ash back where he belongs, in a position of leadership. Barnes has done a great job capturing the essence of, what I perceive to be, the 1970's. The story is progressing well as we get to see Ash officially join the Half Deads and we get some more exposition. The half Deads suspect the Warlocks are at Central Park and are headed that way which sets up what I hope is an epic fight in issue 3!
