Plus, and this is the coolest part, randomly inserted into six tubes will be these original drawings by Petrie of several very recognizable images from the film.

A cool poster and a chance at a free piece of bonus original art too? Groovy.

Just finished watching the first episode of the third season of Ash vs The Evil Dead and it was a hoot!

But for whatever reason I started to think of the evolution of the character of Ash, from the seemingly “ordinary” guy in the original film to the goofball/Three Stooges wannabe in the second to the first glimpses in Army of Darkness of the character he would become, the big mouthed fool.

His character now is presented as a way past his prime drugged out and oversexed partier/fool, which is another evolution into the cartoonish... something I have no problem with!

The only problem I’ve had with the first two seasons of Ash vs. The Evil Dead were each season’s conclusions, which were not all that good even as the individual episodes leading to the conclusions were great.

Here’s hoping the third time’s the charm and the season actually gives us a great ending.

BTW, and mild SPOILERS... I was delighted to find in the previews of the season that a character who appeared in the second season and seemingly was done away with is back. I won’t give it away, but the actor’s initials are LM and he was once worth some six million dollars, man.
