    Ash vs. The Army of Darkness #1 builds upon the zero issue perfectly, acting as a brilliant introduction in it's own right. Giving us an awkward lesson from Ash, a mysterious subplot, and a odd twist near the end, the creative team do a marvellous job of getting this series off the ground, with there being plenty to look forward to as we await the next issue.

    Outright Geekery - Christa Harader Jun 28, 2017

    A key feature of the franchise for me is that Ash is only really cool in his own mind, and I'm pleased to see that the story team preserves the goofiness of the character without really knocking him down. It's clear Ash vs. The Army of Darkness is crafted by fans of the Evil Dead universe, for fans of the Evil Dead universe, while keeping the story accessible enough for the uninitiated to have a good time " and maybe take a trip to a tranquil cabin sometime soon to do a little, uh, light reading?

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 16, 2017

    Ash vs. The Army of Darkness has an interesting premise, but feels like an old man trying way too hard to stay relevant.  It's like that meme of Steve Buscemi floating around from 30 Rock.  "Hello, fellow kids."  This is one step below a Looney Tunes cartoon.  It's a bummer because I really like this franchise and character.

    A nice first issue that successfully builds on the momentum of its prelude, this issue has a bit more action and pinch more wit than last month's entry. It also does a solid job of moving forward to develop its own characters and voice--relying less on previous incarnations of the Evil Dead films and setting up fresh stakes and more outlandish threats than expected.
