Booknote: Ash and the Army of Darkness

Ash and the Army of Darkness - Steve Niles

This volume collects issues 1-8 of the comic. The volume opens with a nice cover gallery; it features some very neat images of Ash, and this is a nice way to open the volume. Overall, this is a nice sequel to the films as Ash goes back to the Dark Ages where the Wise Man, not so wisely, read the book (you know the one), and so the deadites are unleashed once more. It falls to Ash to save the day. . . again. That is what happens when you don't pay attention and fail to say an incantation correctly. This collection is filled with enough action to satisfy fans of the series. The art was pretty good too, and it brings the story to life. I really liked this one, and it was a fast paced read. Fans of the series will want to pick this one up. It makes a good continuation of the story many love. I would certainly buy it for my library, and public libraries will probably want to get it as well.

I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclosure:  This is where I tell you that I read this via NetGalley; it was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. There, The Man should be happy now.
