I was a huge fan of the first couple of Marvel Zombies mini-series. Written by Robert Kirkman (I wonder whatever happened to that guy?), it featured an alternate Marvel Universe where everyone from Spider-Man to Hulk to Thanos ended up as a flesh eating zombie. And when you are a super powered zombie, there’s not much resistance the human race can throw at you.
But all good things must come to an end…specifically the human race, and with it the Zombies greatest food source. What’s a zombie to do? At the very least, become a domain of Battleworld.
After the break I’ll look at Marvel Zombies #1 and Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies #1.
Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com. The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.
And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three,Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven, Part Twelve
