Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep #4
Following an unscheduled crash-landing in Graceland, Ash must quickly dust himself off and do what he does best-defending Necronomicons from Evil! As if plummeting into the King's mansion wasn't bad enough, Bubba enlists an undead Elvis impersonator to take on everyone's favorite deadite-slayer while the fate of the real Elvis remains unknown. Don't miss the deadly conclusion to this hunk of burning crossover grooviness that's guaranteed to raise temperatures and set your soul afire!
This was a fun an action-packed ending to a really enjoyable crossover. One that seemed to have a great respect for the source material and excell at transferring the film characters to a different medium.
This issue tied up the series nicely while still maintaining a great level of suspense. Duvall captures Bruce Campbell’s off-brand sense of human (both as Ash Williams as well as the elderly Elvis Presley) to a degree rarely seen outside of Campbell’s films. The lore of both the Evil Dead (Army of Darkness) series and Bubba Ho-Tep was also well represented in this series. Definitely a book for Campbell fans.
The art in this series seemed to improve with each issue and this finale was no exception. From a burning deadite that was once the man pretending to be Elvis, to the accuracy with which Campbell’s characters are depicted and even the mighty Bubba Ho-Tep himself the art in this issue was great and perfect for the story.
If you’re a fan of Campbell or either if these franchises, I would consider this mini a series read. A great depiction of both Ash and the elderly Elvis.
An exciting ending to a great mini that shows great respect for the films that inspired it.
