Review: Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula

EVLDDRAC_CVR_BThe Evil Dead franchise has seen a life that has extended nearly 30 years since the first movie and continues on in a new TV series on Starz and multiple comics book series. It has spawned two sequels starring Bruce Campbell and a remake which starred a female Ash although was in the same spirit, did not quite live up to the originals. Which then gave the world the TV series, which stars the original actor and introduces some new ones, while never forgetting that horror does not need to completely serious. The comic series tends to also strike the same balance between horror and comedy.

This is where it gets interesting, as many of the publishers are huge fans of the series, as the character lives on at two publishing houses, Dynamite ad SGP. At Dynamite, the incarnation of Ash in the Army of Darkness movies, lives in his own universe, with the occasional crossover with just about every character at Dynamite from Xena to President Obama. At SGP, this incarnation of Ash is the one that lives on in the Evil Dead 2 universe and has his usual run-ins with dead-ites and other supernatural creatures. Both incarnations get Ash ‘s cynical wiseass ways in the most delightful way, while putting their own spin on it.

In SGP’s latest effort, Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula, in this particular story, the Ex- mortis has revived Dracula, which for some reason Ash finds his mission to return to hell. As the solicitation expertly describes:

Dracula, the Prince of Darkness becomes the Prince of the Evil Dead Universe when his undead path crosses with Ash. When the stolen Ex-Mortis is used to revive Dracula, Ash must be the wooden stake that sends him back to the grave. But when Drac reveals the Ex-Mortis has also revived an even greater monster, Ash and the vampire must team up to stop it with the help of the Kandarian dagger.

Throughout this first issue, the reader not only gets re-acclimated to Ash but how insane this world he lives in is, as we get the hero version of Ash in this series, versus the Indiana Jones version Dynamite tends to push.

Altogether, a fun ride of a first issue, that packs quite a punch, while revealing just how scary Dracula is, it never loses its sense of humor. The script by Scott Peterson, thrives with fast paced knock arounds between Ash and Dracula the bigger threat. The art by Horacio Domingues, is vivid and elegant, and almost seems out of place at times in this world, but is definitely a work of art. Overall, a great read with excellent sequential art, that will satisfy any Evil Dead fan.

Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2 Universe Expands!

If you missed Hitler in March, don’t worry! He’s coming back in May!

Space Goat‘s Evil Dead 2 titles have successfully struck a horror nerve, according to Space Goat CEO Shon Bury. The company’s first “Revenge Of” one-shot, Evil Dead 2: Revenge Of Hitler by Ian Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers is sold out from the publisher and going back for a second printing.

Spurred by the strong initial orders and reorder activity on their initial title, Space Goat is expanding their “Revenge Of” titles pitting Ash against other classic horrors. The company has signed critically-acclaimed writers Scott Peterson, Ian Edginton, Georgia Ball, and Ty Templeton to handle the new Evil Dead 2 one-shots.

And they’re bringing with them tales of Martians, Vampires, Jack the Ripper, and Krampus for their 2016 titles.

The titles are meant to have a little fun with a property that’s already meant to be fun.

Veteran DC writer and editor Scott Peterson will tackle Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula this July. In the announcement release, Peterson said:

Ash and Dracula have to team-up to fight an even greater evil. But should you really bring a vampire to a demon fight?”

The one-shot will be illustrated by Yvel Guichet and Horacio Domingues. A variant cover by legendary Batman artist Kelley Jones will be offered as well.

Georgia Ball, who’s currently writing two graphic novels for Scholastic, will script Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Jack The Ripper. Ball said:

Ripper is the quintessential bad guy. He’s one of the original unsolved mysteries. That makes him a natural to go up against Ash and the Deadites with the Kandarian dagger as his weapon of choice.

Ty Templeton will revive H.G. Wells’ classic Martians from The War of the Worlds. Templeton said in the release:

Deadites are reanimating the preserved bodies of the original Martians. The Earth is looking at a second War of the Worlds, unless Ash can stop them, and it won’t be with the old cold-and-flu virus this time.

Templeton has previously worked on a round of EC-style variant covers for Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2: Cradle of the Damned series earlier this year.

Rounding out the first quintet of Revenge titles is Ian Edginton’s ode to holiday joy, Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Krampus.

The second printing of Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Hitler by Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers will ship in May. Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula will ship in July. Shipping dates and artists for the other Revenge Of titles will be announced shortly.

Be on the lookout for these titles this Summer and Fall!

May – Revenge of Hitler REPRINT

July – Revenge of Dracula by Scott Person

 September – Revenge of the Martians by Ty Templeton

October – Revenge of Jack the Ripper by Georgia Ball

November – Revenge of Krampus by Ian Edginton

Review – Welcome to Tranquility: One Foot in the Grave #1


Bookmark and Share

Welcome to Tranquility One Foot in the Grave 1Hmmm, can’t say I know anything about this comic and I went into this series blind as to the characters, world, everything.  And for once I felt I was at a disadvantage.  Published by Wildstorm, written by Gail Simone with art by Horacio Domingues, Weclome to Tranquility: One Foot in the Grave follows a town filled with super heroes and the return to society of one who was accused of a crime.

The fan-favorite series from Gail Simone returns as Sheriff Thomasina Lindo and the town of Tranquility’s unique inhabitants face a new crisis: the return of Mayor Fury from prison! Following the cataclysmic events in the previous series, Mayor Fury faced a trial for murder and was acquitted when the star witness refused to testify. Now he’s free and wants to come home to the town he loves, but a powerful foe from his past has other plans for Fury – and the entire town!
Acclaimed writer Gail Simone (WONDER WOMAN, BIRDS OF PREY) and artist Horacio Domingues (WILDCATS: NEMESIS) spin a new tale from the wondrously small town populated by larger-than-life superhuman citizens!

The story is entertaining, the characters fun with some nice art, but there was something I was missing.  There clearly was history here, and even though I technically didn’t need to know it, I felt like I was clearly missing jokes but no being aware of it.

You’ll be able to pick up this issue and read it no problem.  And it’s definitely an entertaining read.  But there’s just something I feel like was going over my head.  I recommend the issue, but am definitely a bit hesitant about it.
