A crowd-pleasing read, Army Of Darkness Vs. Bubba Ho-Tep #2 (Dynamite Entertainment and IDW Publishing) continues its groovy crossover event with tons of “burning love.” It’s time to “Jailhouse Rock” as two cult horror icons clash for the first time ever!
Last we saw Ash, he was soaring chin-first through a time portal, hot on the bandage of Bubba Ho-Tep, and crash-landed in 70’s Las Vegas! The demonic mummy seeks an ancient Egyptian book of souls and will stop at nothing to possess it! Can Ash put his differences aside with a near-peak condition Elvis long enough to teach this undead thief a lesson? Find out in the Vegas-styled winner-takes-all showdown, where the loser gets his soul sucked out!
Here are 5 reasons to get Army Of Darkness Vs. Bubba Ho-Tep #2:
5) What Happened Before!
From Evil Dead, Ash witnessed his only friends become possessed by demons. After living at a retirement home in Bubba Ho-Tep, Elvis Presley found himself too old to fight against an ancient evil Mummy. After fighting against each other, they suddenly found themselves attacked by the Deadites.
4) The Writing!
Writer Scott Duvall deliver a younger and stronger Elvis Presley as Ash travels back into the ‘70s. Duvall does a great capturing two vibrant personalities in the witty dialogue. Letterer Taylor Esposito does a fantastic job highlighting the raunchy humor as both leads attempt to understand the Necronomicon Ho-Tep.
3) The Artwork!
The illustrations flow with a a cinematic style thanks to artist Vincenzo Federici. Federici delivers a hyper-stylish action sequence with high-flying kung-fu kicks and shotgun blasts. I totally loved seeing a younger and faster Evil Presley as a martial arts expert.
2) The Colors!
I love Michele Monte’s trippy colors throughout the backgrounds of Las Vegas. Notice how the page is full of blue and gray tones as Ash puts on one of Elvis’ flashy suits. Notice how Elvis’ anger is represented in a bright red tone when he enters backstage.
1) A Fantastic Read!
