Freddy vs Jason vs Ash

Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash TPB (2008 DC/Wildstorm) comic books

This is a hard comic to find. I only got it last year and that was after searching for it for a long time. I have no idea how long its actually been out of print, but I can only assume that its stayed that way because of the legal battles that have been going on with the Friday the 13th franchise and the rights mess that comes with having three different franchises crossing over.

Freddy vs Jason vs Ash was written by James Kuhoric and based on a screenplay by Jeff Katz. The art was done by Jason Craig. The basic story of the book is simple and fun. Some of the dialogue is awkward, and some is just plain bad. The bad is mostly because it uses some language that feels weird to see. The action is where it really shines. The way that Craig illustrates the carnage that happens when these three come into close proximity is fantastic.

The plot is pretty simple for Freddy vs Jason vs Ash. The three titans of horror all fight over the Necronomic ex-Mortis. There are some interesting call backs and references throughout. The least interesting parts are with Ash as he’s working at the new Super Mega Ultra S-Mart that has opening in Forest Green, which is the reason that he’s even there. When everything actually kicks in it gets to be fun.

Freddy vs Jason vs Ash is a fun read, if you can find it. I got it and the sequel series for a lot more than I had originally expected to pay for them. I’ll review Freddy vs Jason vs Ash: The Nightmare Warriors tomorrow. I give Freddy vs Jason vs Ash 8 machete hands out of 10.
