Ash and the Army of Darkness #7 Review

Can this series continue to gain momentum as it gets even closer to it’s conclusion? Read on to find out.

The official description from Dynamite:

A new adventure awaits Ash in the Dark Wood as he tries to find Evil Sheila and the Book of the Dead. But Sheila is too busy trying to resurrect a new undead husband to bother with Ash.

Ash and the Aarmy of Darkness #7 variantAsh and the Army of Darkness continues to build steam as it gets even closer to it’s conclusion. Given the title of the series replacing this one along with it’s solicits there’s no price for guessing how the series will end but nonetheless it’s continuing to be a very entertaining story.

Steve Niles continues Ash’s quest to save Sheila with his trip to the Dark Wood delivering some intriguing developments. Again they aren’t hugely surprising given the solicits for Ash Gets Hitched but they do build a aura of suspense leading up to this. I was also highly impressed with how Niles handled the characters as we got a much more cocky and amusing Ash than we’ve had in the last few issues with his charm shining through at times. Niles also did a tremendous job of developing Evil Sheila’s motives and given the events in this issue I can’t wait to see what she has in store next issue.

Nacho Tenorio amazed me with his art on this issue. The improvement in overall consistency and detail really impressed me as along with the dynamic flow it really gave a definitive look to the issue. He also killed it when it came to adding excitement as given the fact there was no real action in this issue it was brilliant that we still got a tone of energy through alternative parts. Tenorio also conveyed the emotions in Niles dialogue brilliantly allowing for some real character depth. Inlight Studios also once again give a fabulous finish with their colours being a matching the tone perfectly.

Ash and the Army of Darkness keeps getting better and with it nearing the end of the current series I couldn’t be happier with it’s current quality. Highly recommended.

  • + Steve Niles continues to improve as we near the end of the series.
  • + Amazing art from Nacho Tenorio.
  • + Returns the humour that makes Ash an awesome character.
  • - Future solicitations take away slightly from certain developments.
