Marvel Zombies HC

Marvel Zombies HC
Robert Kirkman-Sean Phillips-Arthur Suydam

Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Marvel Universe suddenly went zombie? I haven't. But I wish I had. That's the premise behind Marvel Zombies. Zombie-master extraordinarre Robert Kirkman's epic tale of a Marvel U that hungers for flesh and brains. The artwork, particularly the covers for each book, is amazing. Just things that you never imagine, like the Hulk biting off the Silver Surfer's Head, or Wolverine, Spiderman, and others chowing down on Magneto. It's a horrifically funny book.

The dialouge is at times funny, but on the whole one character's dialouge is pretty indistinguishable from the next. However, the story ideas and concepts are fantastic.

Supposedly they are going to expand this into a fullblown universe within Marvel, I think it would be a lot of fun. There's a lot of cool stories you could tell here.

I reccomend it just for the shock value. It's not a great great book, but it's definitely enjoyable.
