Volume One opens up with a wonderfully drawn adaptation of the film Army of Darkness, itself a sequel to the two "Evil Dead Films", all directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce Campbell as Ash, in the role that made him famous. The art of the John Bolton is never equaled again in the collection, and the decision to stick to the original script's ending and not the final one seen in the film made it even more a compelling read. The problems begin with the completely original material, which is based off the film's ending and not the adaptation's. Thus you see Ash in a futuristic post-apocalyptic setting on one page, and back is his own time working as S-Mart on the next, without explanation. The downgrade in art also clues you in on a change you better get used to, as the adaptation had a great sense of movement and scale while the remainder of the Omnibus struggles with flow and uses an intentional distorted scale that often is jarring and fails to evoke the humor intended.
The quality of the story is affected in the original material as well. The decision to revisit themes from the film adnausium detracts from the overall tale, how many times can we take a repeat of the "little Ashes" from the broken mirror gag? There is a definite dedication to imitating the one-liners the Ash character is known for, but the ratio is so high that repetition is required to sustain the pace. The complete change of character from supporting cast from the film, so clearly presented in the opening chapters of the Omnibius, likewise makes one think the whole target audience age was severely lowered once original material was produced. The best thing the rest of the Omnibus has going for it is a very accurate tone for Ash, you can hear Bruce Campbell's voice in your head if you are familiar with the film series, and a "thank God" decision deep into the book to elect to attach other famed horror theme characters into the narrative, in this case a Reanimator and Army Of Darkness blend. Though the final chapters of the collection still remain difficult to adore, it did take the entire concept somewhere more original and had me thinking about actually taking a look at Volume 2, when Ash finds himself in conflict with the Universal Studios rack of monsters, Dracula, Wolfman and Frankenstein.
In the end, the best way to have read this series was probably an issue at a time, weeks, if not months, apart. If you delve into the Omnibus, at least in volume one, be ready to be tired of the merry-go-round about halfway in.
Everything you've ever dreamed of spawned from a classic.
Lovely pages, but to be picky the spine is wanting.
