Writer: Scott Duvall
Artist: Vincenzo Federici
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Two cult classics clash for the first time in an epic crossover miniseries: ARMY OF DARKNESS VS. BUBBA HO-TEP. Ash embarks on a soul-searching road trip to Texas on a hunch that Elvis Presley may still be alive and kicking (and supposedly vanquished a mummy)! What follows is a series of universe-spanning events that involve an Elvis jumpsuit with special time-travel abilities, a trip to 70’s Vegas, plus the reveal of an evil new Book of the Dead, the Necronomicon Ho-Tep. Has Ash met his ultimate match when trading barbs with a 4,000-year-old, foul-mouthed mummy who sucks souls? Can his idol Elvis mentor him through a mid-life crisis before it becomes his final crisis? Join the adventure in a road-tripping, time-hopping groovy tale!

CRISIS ON INFINITE BRUCES! There’s a certain silly fun to be had in combining these two over-the-top properties into one story, and they certainly didn’t skimp on the action sequence. I still don’t know what the last couple of pages were about, but I enjoyed the heck out of this book.Matthew's Thoughts
What a perfect sequel that was never made to the Bubba Ho-Tep movie, and a perfect follow up to the Ash vs. The Evil Dead series , too! THe trappings, failings, and general uncomfortable moments hashed out by other writers in these series are gone, and we are left with nothing but kung-fu, mummies, and Dillinger. Hail to the King!Stephen's Thoughts
