The second issue in the Dark Horse Comics series called The Hire-inspired by the BMW Films series of the same name-is "Precious Cargo." The cargo in question being an ostensibly pregnant woman who's involved in-surprise!-an insane car chase, in a story written by none other than longtime Sam Raimi action hero Bruce Campbell. The Campbell-starring Raimi film Army of Darkness has also seen the comics light of day as a Dark Horse series, but this is Campbell's comics writing debut. "I'd always had a lot of respect for Dark Horse's taste as a comic book company," says Campbell, "so when The Hire came my way, I jumped on it, mainly because I was intrigued by how a short story is converted to such a visual medium. This was one of the trickiest ventures I'd ever wandered into, because of its exacting nature-I had to think like a director the entire time."
