BookBin2010: Army of Darkness/Xena, Volume 1: Why Not?

Huh? Wha? What the hell is this all about? Utter silliness, of course. This is a collection of comics that brings together the worlds of Xena, Warrior Princess and Ash Williams from The Evil Dead/Army of Darkness movies.

Why? Easy answer: Bruce Campbell. He portrayed Ash Williams and he played Autolycus, the King of Thieves in the Hercules/Xenaverse.

Yes, I wrote the word “Xenaverse.” Accept it and move on.

Does one need more reason than this to want to read these comics? If you do, then this is definitely not a book you would enjoy. However, if you’re a fan of either or both (tick!), then this is a goofy bit of fun that you can easily plow through in one sitting. I mean, honestly, how do you not love this?

Final Verdict: It’s not Shakespeare…but it is fun. Therefore, this gets to stick around. I even found it amusing enough that I might try to get my hands on a copy of its sequel at some point…
