I'm a pretty big fan of Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness --- mainly because they hit the sweet spot of ridiculous comedy and goofball action, while the original Evil Dead is exactly scary enough to give me nightmares --- but there's something that I've noticed when it comes to comic book continuations of the series. The past few years have seen a couple dozen four-color sequels to Army of Darkness, but there's not a whole lot picking up on the threads left over from Evil Dead 2. "But wait," you might be saying, "Army of Darkness is the direct sequel to Evil Dead 2." And that's true, assuming that you're following Ash. If, however, you decide to follow poor, doomed Annie Knowby as she's dragged off to another dimension by deadites, then there's a whole new story to tell. And if that's what you're looking for, Space Goat Productions has a comic you might be interested in.

Though Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn could be considered a soft reboot of the first film because so many events repeat, it's got enough going for it to make it one of the most memorable cult horror hits of the '80s. Evil Dead 2 not only led us to Army of Darkness, the quintessential slapstick horror movie every teenage boy loves to quote, but it also laid the real foundation for fan-favorite actor Bruce Campbell's career. Evil Dead 2 wouldn't have happened without Evil Dead, but without Evil Dead 2, Bruce Campbell would have just been that guy that shows up in Sam Raimi films as a friendly cameo, and we probably wouldn't have Ash vs. Evil Dead. Most importantly though, without Evil Dead 2, we wouldn't have a bunch of kick-ass toys of a dude with a chainsaw for a hand.
