…with a custom image sketch courtesy of Tom Brazelton of Theater Hopper. It is, of course, a rendition of yours truly as Ash from Evil Dead/Army of Darkness. As we all know, Ash is/was a truly awesome character. It’s too bad Raimi, Campbell and Co. could never get it together for another movie… Then again, they probably did everything they could with that particular concept.
Theater Hopper is a thrice-weekly web comic strip devoted to the pop culture of movies. It’s pretty damned funny and gets the official Beemsville recommendation. As an example of Tom’s humor: at his table in Artists’ Alley he was proudly displaying a t-shirt for sale, upon which read, “Rest in Peace, Sean Bean” with a headshot sketch of the beloved limey actor.
Now if you can figure out why that t-shirt made me laugh, you’ll probably be able to figure out what was on the back of said shirt. Go ahead and venture your guess in the comments. If you don’t have a clue as to why this is so funny, that’s OK too. You should still check out Theater Hopper.
