'My Name Is Bruce' Writer Penning 'The Evil Dead' Comic
So Mark Verheiden, who wrote the future Bruce Campbell masterpiece My Name Is Bruce, has been tapped to write comic book adaptation of The Evil Dead. This comic book version is more than just a retelling of what we already know but will go into the back story of our man Ash. Here is a description of the project from Verheiden:
"With the blessing of the Raimi/Tapert/Campbell crew, I'm writing an enhanced, 88 page (4 issue) adaptation of the first movie. Since I don't think anyone's all that interested in a beat-for-beat adaptation (if you want to see the movie, you can buy/rent it), the point here is to expand on the original film and give a little more background on Ashleigh, Scotty and the ladies, and explore the world between the narrative cracks in the movie itself. All this is told from the POV of Ash as he looks back on his experience, giving the, umm, "adventure" his own unique spin."
The 4 part series comes out sometime in 2007. You can catch the full post by Verheiden here.
