Ash is back at school and is away to teach some Deadites a lesson.

Ash is posing as a teacher so he can ever so subtlety investigates a high school in which it looks like someone has uncovered the Book of The Dead. It doesn’t take long for Ash to confirm something is not right with this school I mean the popular kids are studying that can’t be normal!

While supervising detention so he can gauge some of the more likely perpetrators, Ash, again using his Subtle detection skills tries to oust the bad guy but is interrupted by a crash outside and upon investigation, it’s an explosion in the science lab caused by none other than the Book. You can tell it’s from the Book because of the soul eating frogs that Ash has to fight and of course beat

All the humour from the Evil Dead film series is rife throughout this comic and I love it, I find myself delivering Bruce Campbells classically Deadpan lines using his voice which can never be a bad thing and it looks like Ash finds himself wrapped up in yet another prophecy and I cant wait to see where it leads

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them.

A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
