A surprisingly salient recap, from an unusual place:

Man, I really want to go see the Evil Dead remake. And my girlfriend, well, not so much. Still might go today...

Today's pages recap both Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness (which I saw in the theater it's last week of release...over twenty years ago!) but comes from a somewhat unexpected place: the second issue of IDW's Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness crossover. Wow, 19 covers for 6 issues. What happens the first issue? I'm not a hundred percent sure, but this month Ash is not in a good place, as everyone he sees appears to be a Deadite. Which leads to him accidentally punching his girlfriend, flashing a girl scout troop, and beating up a good number of possibly innocent bystanders. (He sees everyone as Deadites, but it isn't clear if they attack him or anything...) Ash knows someone must have messed with that stupid Necronomicon again, but ends up tased down by the cops.

Meanwhile, the girls of Danger Girl, in various sexy outfits, have the Necronomicon; then see news footage of Ash's booking. They recognize him from the Necronomicon, but wrongly assume he couldn't be the same guy; perhaps a descendant, whom they might have to break out of jail...

I got this issue for under a buck, so I'm not sure where it went from there, but the recap was all right. Danger Girl and the Army of Darkness #2, written by Andy Hartnell, art by Chris Bolson.
