A mysterious fighter comes to Ash's aid and helps him get away from Wiseman and the Deadites. There's a new wrinkle in the action though. Ash figures out that a key item has gone missing and if he survives the City of the Dead, he might be able to get home in one piece. Two at the most.

    I cant stress enough how much I love this comic. I said it before and Ill say it again: this is the sequel that Evil Dead fanatics have been waiting a long time for. Ash Williams is back in a big way. Now that hes got his handy red chainsaw and his boomstick back, I dont think any number of flimsy skeletons can bring him down. Read Full Review

    This is fun, if brief, and Im sure that fans of the series will not feel let down which, at the end of the day, is the most important thing when it comes to books like this. Its for the fans,and to be honest, this is worth picking up for Templesmiths cover alone. Read Full Review

    Of course, we still get Ash's wonderful badass banter and the famous chainsaw even makes an appearance here, and it's good to know the creative team appreciate what makes Army of Darkness cool and entertaining in the first place, and going forward It will be good to see where they can take the character in this new, back to basics title.

    Right now the series fails to capture the zany insanity that the film is known for, and as it stands is my most major gripe. With a little more attention to the fun side of Army of Darkness and a little less time spent on moving the pieces into play for the longer game issue three might be able to capture the films magic.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Dec 4, 2013

    There's a pretty solid story here but everything else feels like a misstep. Niles does appear to be laying out the groundwork for what looks to be a good story. The art doesn't do much service to the written word though. The characters are spot on, but everything else could use a little polish. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Dec 29, 2013

    No specific editor is stated on this book's inside front cover and I can understand why. This is the worst Dynamite comic I have ever read and I'm amazed it ever got published. It's destroying my love for this character and the movie. Avoid this at all costs. Read Full Review
