An all-new series by RYAN PARROTT (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and JACOB EDGAR (Red Sonja)! It's been six months since the events of the Army of Darkness film...Ash is just trying to settle down and get back to his groovy ways. But dammit, DEADITE-POSSESSED strangers keep attacking him at every turn. Why is evil following everywhere he turns, and what happens when an awful splinter spell causes Ash to become...TEAM ASH!?

And, because it's February, we're celebrating Valentine's Day with a special variant by artist Sebastian Piriz!

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jason Jeffords Jr Feb 17, 2020

    The creative team behind Dynamite's DEATH TO THE ARMY OF DARKNESS #1 nails the tone of the movie perfectly. Fans new and old alike will find something they love in the introductory issue of Team Ash. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kevin M. Gallagher, Jr Feb 24, 2020

    "Death to the Army of Darkness" #1 is a wonderful entry into the Evil Dead franchise and captures the essence of the movies and characters. The art doesn't exactly match up with what's expected, but the future looks bright for this series. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 19, 2020

    Ash Williams is back for more, but completely not at all ready to battle the horrible Deadites again. Luckily, probably, he has some help this time. More Ash is always welcome. Read Full Review

    Nerdly - Dean Fuller Feb 26, 2020

    Overall, a fun return to the world of Ash and his Deadite enemies. Ryan Parrott captures the perfect tone for the book, the comedic horror mix, and the cartoony style art of Jacob Edgar fits well too. Although long time fans will be more than happy, I do wonder if the book might be a little confusing to any newbies, as very little explanation is given beyond passing exposition. Overall, I guess I have to contractually say that I would rate it… Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 18, 2020

    Though I was a little hesitant to pick up Death to the Army of Darkness #1, I am glad I did. Any fan of the movies/show will greatly enjoy this issue. It has everything that made the movies a cult hit with legions of fans from all over. This issue reminded me a lot of the widely-overlooked Dynamite series Blood Brothers, with its animated art styling and silly yet dramatic story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Feb 14, 2020

    It feels like something giving readers some sort of context is missing, and unfortunately the book ends weaker than it starts. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Feb 19, 2020

    The story itself does little to offer audiences anything that new or exciting for long-time Evil Dead fans, up until the final pages, which could set the stage for a more engaging narrative in future issues. This isn't to say that the book is disappointing, as it honors the tone of the franchise, but it largely just goes through the expected motions. Read Full Review
