Over at the Splash Page blog, Laura Hudson has more on the Dark Horse comic book tie-in, including a three-page preview and an interview with scripter Milton Freewater.

Freewater says that when he got the call from Dark Horse to write the “My Name Is Bruce” comic, “it was tied to a Bruce Campbell movie, so I couldn’t pass it up… I love Bruce’s work. I’ve followed him since ‘Evil Dead.’ I think he’s been in every movie made since about 1987,” he jokes. “And he was the only good thing about the train-wreck that was ‘Spider-Man 3.’”


  1. So, in a number of cities, Bruce Campbell appears for the premiere of director Bruce Campbell’s film ‘My name is Bruce’, starring Bruce Campbell as Bruce Campbell. Awesome.

    I saw him a couple years back in college and he was talking about working on this or getting it made. Nice to finally see finally released.
