Reader's Diary #3000 - Mark Verheiden (writer), John Bolton (artist): The Evil Dead

It wasn't actually that long ago that I saw The Evil Dead for the first time. I liked it enough, as well as the remake, so a comic based on the movie seemed like a easy win. 

But it was basically the exact same story. Supposedly there are a few scenes added in here or there, but I hardly noticed. They certainly don't add anything. 

As for the art? According to Mark Verheiden he was super pleased with John Bolton's art because he wanted something that looked like the movie. I guess that's true, but it's painted like it was run through one of those apps that "make your portrait look like a work of art." And if I just wanted a rehash of the movie, I'd re-watch the movie.
