Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

Review: Army Of Darkness: Omnibus, Volume 1

Army of Darkness Omnibus Volume 1 - Robert Place Napton, Nick Bradshaw, Andy Hartnell, Ivan Raimi, Sam Raimi, James Kuhoric, Kevin Sharpe, Robert Kirkman, John Bolton, Sanford Greene

This was a beast!  It's broken into five sections and each one tells the story of Ash's shenanigans with the Necronomicon, deadites, Evil Ash and time travel.



This has been a treat to read!  It is full of time travel, Ash goobering up his one task to destroy the book over and over, fighting and endless deadite army, and multiple Evil Ashes.  He saves the girl, loses the girl, ends up in the wrong time, travels backwards and forwards in time, gets sucked into a computer game and fights the evil digital version of himself and deadite soldiers.  He travels back to the cabin where it all started, picks up [and loses] new allies, destroys the book on multiple occasions and still the Necronomicon finds a way back into his life every time.


The stories are amazing and the artwork is is phenomenal.  Part of what took me so long to finish it was me staring at the art.  Each section is done by different writers and illustrators, so that makes it that much more eye-grabbing noticing the differences in writing and art styles.  It's a must read for anyone who is a fan of Ash Williams and the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness series.
