Praise for Dynamite’s Army of Darkness:
“Illustrator John Bolton kicked off the first Army of Darkness comic book series, an adaptation of the movie written by Sam and Ivan Raimi. Since then, Ash has crossed over with several other movie and comics franchises, meeting everyone from Raimi’s Darkman to zombie Spider-Man. Ash has had so many comic book crossovers (Reanimator, Freddy and Jason, even Xena), he’s starting to make Batman look like a homebody.)” – AMC.com’s Horror Hacker Blog
“If you aren’t reading this series…then why the hell not? It’s currently the most enjoyable indy title I’m reading right now.” – Liam Bradley, ComicRelated.com
