Batman and Marvel Zombies



When I first heard of the Marvel Zombies mini-series, it sounded like a silly concept and I didn't bother to pick up the issues. I then read a bunch of positive reviews as well as some of Robert Kirkman's other comics work and decided to give it a shot. I am glad I did because I really got a kick out of it, as well as the sequel. It has a nice gallows humor to it and Sean Phillips knows how to draw gore without it having too much of a gross out factor. I haven't tried the later series with different creative teams, hopefully Marvel isn't stretching the concept too thin.

Actually, the later Marvel Zombies minis by Fred Van Lente are even better than the Kirkman stuff! It's really wild Zombies trying to invade the regular Marvel U stuff, with all sorts of obscure characters. If you liked Marvel in the 70s and 80s, you'll love the Zombies stuff.

I want to see a Marvel Zombies meets (or versus) the Black Lantern Corps

I'd like to see Marvel Zombies become the enslaved pawns of Darth Andeddu!
