“ARMY OF DARKNESS: ASH SAVES OBAMA” #1 (Dynamite Entertainment): Confession time: I’ve been offering “Ashley J. Williams,” the name of Bruce Campbell’s iconic, chainsaw-wielding hero from the “Evil Dead” movies, as my write-in candidate for most minor and major elections for almost a decade now. If I don’t know the nominees, who better for the office than a guy who’s saved the world from the Deadite scourge countless times?
In this new Dynamite series, my vision for a better tomorrow kinda/sorta finds a home, with U.S. President Barack Obama visiting a comic convention targeted for Deadite invasion, leaving the Commander-in-Chief of the Boomstick Brigade as Obama’s only hope. Like I’ve said before, it’s so crazy, it’s going to work. Fact. (And did I mention the amazing Todd Nauck cover?)
Honorable Mention: “Dark Entries” HC (DC/Vertigo): DC’s new line of hardcover mystery novels kicks off with this great little story in the “Hellblazer” universe that sends John Constantine into a “Big Brother”-style reality-tv show haunted by dangerous entities. Like everything with Constantine, all is not as it seems.
