Why the hell not? Ashley J Williams began his journey against the Deadite hordes in the low budget horror film “The Evil Dead”, written and directed by Mr Sam Raimi (director of Spider-Man 1-3, Drag Me to Hell and Darkman amongst others), with the greatest B-Actor in the world playing Ash. Bruce Campbell’s charisma, charm and chin gave Ash the presence of awesomeness which made him a cult icon.
Evil Dead 2 and Evil Dead 3: The Army of Darkness followed, splicing the horror genre with some classic slapstick. If you have not seen any of these films, do so now (and to settle the argument between the Thought Balloons tenured writers, Army of Darkness is the better of the three films).
The film adventures of Ash ended here, with us all hailing to the king. However, Ash’s crusade lived on in comics. Not only sticking it to the Deadite menace, Ash has also taken on Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, werewolves, Freddy, Jason, Marvel Zombies and demonised girlfriends, while all the while being, well, just COOL!
So what do our tenured writers have in mind for Ash this week? A battle for the end of the world? A new attachment for his stubbed arm? A romantic tale? The only way to find out is visit back throughout the week.
Oh, and if you have a great one page story in you about this week’s character, feel free to post it below!
