“Attention, everyone. Detention has been cancelled due to severe Deadite activity in the chemistry lab. Thank you and have a good day.”Ash goes undercover as a substitute teacher to find out who is messing with Necronomicon and the only thing harder than ridding the earth of an evil, undead scourge is figuring out who the cool kids are!

    Yet again, what we have here is a comic book that, despite what you know, or don't know, about Ash and his history, is highly entertaining and worth reading. And although I'm unsure if whether Chris Sims and Chad Bowers will be able to keep the series feeling fresh as we move forward, I am confident in their abilities and have faith that readers will not only keep coming back for more but also, that new readers will stumble across this gem and get hooked.

    Outright Geekery - Christa Harader Jul 31, 2017

    I'm particularly thrilled to see Ash get the crap beat out of him" it's always important that Ash not actually be a real cool dude, and what I was missing just a little in issue 1 is definitely present here. He gets his licks in, but he also spends enough time getting licked to preserve the satirical “hero” elements we all know and love from the film universe. The kids have vignette moments that're true to their established characters so far, and the cliffhanger leaves me excited for the next installment. A fun romp, to be sure, and I'm on board enough to keep with it. How Sims, Bowers and co. will pace the rest of the run remains to be seen, because I'd like a few slower moments that maintain good character development sometime soon now that we've gotten a dose of excitement. Pick up a copy, or the aggro dumpster cannibal'll getcha. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Aug 9, 2017

    There's a nice twist towards the end of the book that could have great effects for Ash's role as the Chosen One in the battle against the deadites. I'm very curious to see how this will play out. At the bare minimum, I hope that it provides a respite from the corny gags that have been peppered through the book so far. Ash vs. The Army of Darkness has the potential to do some cool and interesting stuff with the character. Read Full Review
