With just a touch of my burning hand

One of my favorite movies of the 1980s was Evil Dead 2, the movie which most of all made Bruce Campbell a B-movie star. As someone who also enjoys comics, I was drawn Marvel Zombies vs. the Army of Darkness. As it happens, I didn't get much out of the book, which consists of various Marvel heroes turning into zombies and Ash dodging them. He finds allies among the heroes, but they keep dying so he has to find more, which eventually lead him to Doctor Doom.

I have two theses as to why I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped, and they both relate to humor. The dialogue was decent but not quite what I remembered. So one possibility is that the humor is dependent on the verbal delivery and facial expressions of Bruce Campbell. The other is that this a kind of entertainment I really enjoyed as a teen, but not so much in my mid-30s.
