    Comic Crusaders - Shawn Warner Feb 13, 2019

    Vincenzo Federici's artwork is a pitch perfect match full of the same kinetic energy as Duvall's script. His take on the characters made famous by Campbell's rakish good looks come to life with just enough realism to make it work. There are no unwelcome easily identifiable traced images like those found in some of the other licensed properties, no there is just solid sequential art storytelling. The pages pulsate with energetic images exploding from one panel to the next in a cacophonous concerto of chaos, all that's missing is a raucous Rob Zombie soundtrack. Michele Monte's colors are vivacious, almost violently vibrant, every sequine on Elvis' jumpsuit sparkles with the promise of a little less conversation and a little more action. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Feb 15, 2019

    This crossover, more than most, risked falling false and flat. Instead, Duvall's brought the protagonists together on their common ground. Ash stuck in Housewares drudgery until an undead threat looms and he rises against it. Elvis's dreams of being a hero waylaid by fame, and only realized in the twilight of life. This title is like a movie with split-screened Bruce Campbell working his mojo on both characters, allied and taking care of business. Read Full Review
