So many new series were given their debut’s at Comic Con this year but the one I’m really excited about it Ash vs. Evil Dead. The series will debut on Starz and follows the adventures of Bruce Campbell as Ash from the Evil Dead films. It also stars Lucy Lawless and is produced by Evil Dead maestro Sam Raimi.
The booth for Ash vs. Evil Dead was decked out with original set pieces, and a fun feature where you can go into the bathroom and get a scare from The Evil Dead.
I, along with Suddenly Susan, was lucky enough to score a ticket to the signing. While in line, got to hang with Ian who also got a ticket to the signing as well.
This was a big one for me. I love The Evil Dead and I couldn’t believe my good fortune to get a ticket.
As the booth was getting ready for the stars arrivals, everyone was getting anxious. One thing about Comic Con, is that there is a line for everything and it’s hurry up and wait.
Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless and Sam Raimi all made their way to the booth and while they were checking out the booth, Bruce Campbell took it upon himself to test everyone’s pens. I have to tell you, it’s so nice that he does that! I appreciate it so so much!
Then, I noticed the posters. OMG! The best posters I think I’ve ever seen at Comic Con, not only are they 24×36 but they are flocked and look amazing! As an added bonus the posters glow in the dark. Holy special edition Fanboy!
The signing started quickly, and as typical for Comic Con signings it moved fast.
Sam Raimi was super cool and I told him how excited I was for the series.
Bruce Campbell was his typical Bruce-ness and was super nice. It’s really cool to meet someone of his stature at SDCC of all places.
Finally Lucy Lawless, was so freakin nice. I actually got to talk to her for a hot second. I told her how much I’ve been looking forward to the series, and she said, “It’s going to be so good. I wouldn’t have done it, if it wasn’t awesome. I’m so excited for you to see it.”
I have to tell you, this is one of the signings I wanted most over the weekend, and I’m so thankful everything worked out and I was able to get one!
We’ll have more recaps from SDCC coming up!
Until next time kids…
