My first and only comic book. I'd never read anything like it. I understand why some of my friends like comic books so much. They're not for geeks. They're entertaining. People see comic book movies but won't read them and I don't understand it. If you've never read a comic book, try one. I dare you.

The dialog in this comic isn't what I would call "great literature" but it was good enough for a comic combining the "excellent cinematography" of army of darkness and marvel. What can I say I have a soft spot in my heart for anything revisiting the deadites. Ash was a little off but I don't think anyone cold ever do ash like Bruce Campbell. For any true Evil Dead fan it's worth the read.

Army of Darkness I have only really heard about so this character was new to me. This marvel team up started out good but then the talking books came into play.

I like how they give the marvels you don't hear to much about more play. Cloak and Dagger made a small appearance as well as Howard The Duck. Overall I enjoy reading these but they just keep only getting 3 stars from me.
I hadn't read any of the other MARVEL ZOMBIES titles before, so the concept still struck me as totally fresh. I must admit, I took great sadistic pleasure in seeing all my favorite Marvel characters turned into zombies and then killed in all sorts of gruesome, undignified ways. Adding the Ash character from the EVIL DEAD series just makes things all the better.
I wasn't expecting much from this, seeing as how writer John Layman was responsible for penning those awful ARMY OF DARKNESS/XENA crossov...more
Surprisingly entertaining mish mash. Worth a look for fans of either.
To throw a disclaimer out there from the off, I'm not much into films so while I've not technically watched the Evil Dead movies, I know enough of them from almost osmosis that I can understand and appreciate the references etc.
Likewise with the Marvel characters, I've never been an avid comic book collector and the whole parallel dimensions, intrinsic details of various character profiles etc, alternate timelines etc can and often does go straight over my head. I do however still know enough ab...more

Что будет, если мертвецы вылезут из своих могил и начнут терроризировать простых людей? Кто сможет их остановить? Правильно. Эш. Этот сценарий видели уже не раз. Но что если мертвецы будут не совсем обычными? Что если у них будут суперсилы? Что если Эшу придется сражаться с зомби Человеком-Пауком, подкатывать к супергероиням Marvel и называть Доктора Дума “Железным дровосеком”? Мечты? Как бы не так. Все возможно в этом потрясающем кроссовере “Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness”, в котором Эш по...more
Much like real zombies, Marvel's successful zombie series wouldn't die. This entry is a crossover with Dynamite Entertainment featuring Ash and his boomstick. If I have to explain that Ash is from The Evil Dead trilogy, we both already know this is probably not your kind of reading material.

I was bound to like this just for throwing Ash and the Necronomicon into the Marvel Zombie mix but this entry isn't as good as the the ones written by Robert Kirkman, better known for his other zombie series...more

Add Army of Darkness to an already fun idea and it gets way better. Ash works as a 4th wall breaker, making us self aware of how silly it is that there's a world of "spandex wearing super-chumps" and how they're causing more trouble in this than they ever solved beforehand.

A solid mix of horror and comedy.

Seven out of ten. CBR format.

A bizarre cross-over between Ash from the Evil Dead series and Marvel Superheroes who have been turned into zombies. Ash lands in New York just as the zombie outbreak starts.

Silly and has zombies, therefore good.

Bryson McCheeseburger
Just good old fun with Zombies, Ash and the superheroes of Marvel. Loved some of the smaller cameos including Howard the Duck. A little light, could have been longer or more substance, but really, what do you expect from a Marvel Zombie book.
The Book Geek
Not a must read to complete the series, as this cross over is more of a stand alone. Would recommend this to fans of the original Evil Dead. Was an average read.
Loren Toddy
It can't be?! Really?! These two worlds were going to bump heads?! Ash was going to do what he did to the Marvel Zombies what he had already done time and time again to the Evil Dead?! I was only to eager to buy this book and enjoy every page of it. Therein lies the surprise for me. It was okay. Not great. Not that funny. Just okay. The cover of the book and the covers inside were the best thing about it. Do I still have the book? Of course I do, though it's my least favorite one of the books. T...more

My cousins and I have gotten in the habit of giving each other ninja or zombie themed gifts for birthdays and holidays. As such, I got this for my birthday last month.

This is graphic novel of a crossover between the Marvel Zombies series and the Army of Darkness series of comics. Definitely very tongue in cheek. The comic does a good job of poking fun at both Marvel as well as Army of Darkness with lots of inside jokes for the die hard fans.

This isn't the best art that I've ever seen in a graphi...more

Who doesn't want to see Ash half-assing his way through the zombie apocalypse?

"Domo arigato Mr Roboto" - priceless.
Corny, silly, entertaining at times, lame at times, good for a lark.
Regalo per un amico... prima me lo sono letto io!!!
Come perdersi quel mascellone di Bruce Campbell che si scazzotta con i Vendicatori&co.?
Ok, entusiasmo da fan del trash a parte, il volume non è nulla di che e, se non ci fosse stata la "guest star" in copertina, non l'avrei neppure preso in considerazione... l'importante è prenderlo per quello che è: niente di serio, solo l'ennesima trovata commerciale della "Casa delle Idee (per far soldi)".
Se non ci si aspetta nulla di più, ce lo si p...more

A crossover comic where Ash battles the Marvel Zombies. Where the original Marvel Zombies stories work, this one just fails. There's very little of the original stories' charisma left and Ash seems like a totally different character than in the movies. You only recognize him from the chainsaw, boomstick and dull repetitions of some movie one liners. Long story short: this is not funny, nor does it give practically any more content to the main story.

An useless crossover which some may enjoy but I...more

This was kind of an odd edition to the Marvel Zombie line up. Was it odder than MArvel Zombies 5? No, I guess not. In fact it came off as way more superhero-ee than that one (the addition of seeing what doom was up to was cool). I'm not the worlds biggest Army of Darkness fan, I don't dislike it, I'm just pretty much indifferent to it. I generally walk away from reading it enjoying it and enjoying all the superhero stuff and wishing it had ALL been superhero stuff and that Ash just hadn't been t...more
Thus far, of the Marvel Zombies series I've read have been rather grotesque and mildly interesting at times, even for a zombie comic. However, this one piqued my interest because of the AOD tie-in. I mean, Marvel and Dynamite Entertainment? Come on, that has to be pretty weird.

All in all, it was incredibly and shamelessly corny as one would expect an AOD/Marvel collaboration to be, but still a pretty funny read. I'd recommend the book to any Bruce Campbell fan.
Krystl Louwagie
I didn't expect much from this, but Ash is definitely more fun when watching on screen and not reading. It all seemed pretty cliche and predictable here instead of surprising and quirky. And half the fun of those movies is clay animation which you can'd do here. Also, it's weird that these zombies talk, and that this story never happened in any actual Marvel universe...
This graphic novel is borderline fan fiction. While it’s reasonably well written and the art is good the story definitely feels like a bunch of people said “wouldn’t that be cool” around a dinner table one evening. The story revolves around Ash, from the Evil Dead films, as he runs through the marvel universe attempting to stop the undead yet again. While this isn’t high brow art, this book is a really fun read for those familiar with the Marvel Verse and Ash.
Now this is what I'm talkign about. The explanation of the Marvel Zombies is awesome for any Evil Dead fan and the fact that this is a direct continuation of the Army of Darkness comic makes it that much better. If anyone is interested in the series you just need to read this, MZ 1-2 and Returns. They offer the best plot of them all and are coherent together. Please note I havent read dead days which bridges Army and MZ1

Recommends it for: Ash Williams fans, Marvel fans
There is a good blend of humor with zombie thrill to make this an entertaining reading. Fans of Ash Williams and Army of Darkness will likely enjoy this take. I enjoyed how he was able to use his fast thinking and previous experiences to get out of trouble, well, sort of. The zombies premise in this Marvel series is interesting, and the addition of Ash Williams adds a nice sense of light humor. Definitely enjoyable.
I just watched Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness for the first time a few days ago and enjoyed them, and this is pretty much what I expected. Great illustrations of zombified Marvel heroes, plenty of one liners from Ash, and a decent amount of flesh eating and butt kicking. It was really fun, and made me chuckle a few times, but it wasn't quite Deadpool funny, and the plot...well...I've never been a fan of zombies.
Noah Soudrette
I'm a big Evil Dead/Army of Darkness fan, and honestly, all the other original comics I've read featuring Ash have sucked. That said, this book rocks! I laughed my ass off quite a bit and was generally impressed with the whole thing. If your a fan of Ash, you'll love this. It's also a good companion piece to the first Marvel Zombie's series, as it gives some interesting background.

Ok you need to read my review on the First Marvel Zombies Book and then.... They added Ash from the Evil Dead Movies. This just makes me smile. There is no one else in the world who could handle superhero's turned Zombies like Bruce Campbell!

The mix of these two stories just make me happy and I think that is enough said about that.
4.5 Great book. I thought this was very entertaining and true to both the Marvel Universe and Ash Williams' character. I have almost no complaints. My one problem with it is that a different artist drew an issue or two and it ended up looking a little disjointed. Other than that one artist, this art was beautifully rendered.
Requested three "Marvel Zombies" graphic novels from the library and this one came first. Ash from "Army of Darkness" has to fight all the zombified Marvel heroes and villains. Had potential, but it didn't turn out to be that great of a read. The best part about it was the alternate cover paintings at the end.
