An action-packed read, Army Of Darkness Vs. Bubba Ho-Tep #3 (Dynamite Entertainment and IDW Publishing) is “all shook up” with its groovy crossover event. These two cult horror icons will “swallow your soul” for the first time ever!
Having just scored a victory against the nefarious Bubba Ho-Tep, our heroes Ash and 70’s-era Elvis take to the skies in the King’s private jet, escorting the powerfully destructive Necronomicon Ho-Tep. In order to keep it out of the wrong hands, they must provide the Egyptian artifact safe passage back to Elvis’ secure fortress in Graceland. But even at 20,000 feet, evil lurks closer than they realize…as do giant scarabs!
Here are 5 reasons to get Army Of Darkness Vs. Bubba Ho-Tep #3:
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 in Las Vegas.
4) The Writing!
Writer Scott Duvall delivers the high-flying terror of a plane ride gone horribly wrong. Duvall does a great job with the witty banter between two fast-talking personalities. Letterer Taylor Esposito is fantastic at emphasizing the hilarious one-liners during the action sequences.
3) The Artwork!
This is the installment that fully captures the kinetic energy of Vincenzo Federici’s illustrations. The drawings present a young Elvis whipping out his nunchucks, squashing the bloodsucking scarabs. There is an epic splash page of Ash swinging his chainsaw.
2) The Colors!
I love Michele Monte’s trippy green colors during the fight scenes. Notice how the blood squishing into the air is green, like in Evil Dead 2. The climatic pages are captured in a vivid palette.
1) A Fantastic Read!
