When Comic-Book-Man asked me “You like Zombies right?”, I knew he was about to spring some new comic on me. He’s tricky, but I’m on to his sneaky mind games. You see, he likes to tell me about things – and then I buy them because all I hear in my head “I WANT IT! I WANT IT! GIMME! GIMME! NOW! NOW NOOOOOW!”.
Tricky Tricky Comic-Book-Man. But when he started talking about Marvel Zombies, I was like “Whatever, I’ve already see that.” Nevermind that he was trying to explain that this was new, my mind was already turning back to my new The Walking Dead, and trying to remember which Buffy comic I’d left off on.
It wasn’t until later that night as I was randomly referencing my trip to the comic store with some friends that it hit me. A NEW Marvel Zombie Comic series.
Robert Kirkman (Marvel Zombies, Ultimate X-Men) and Sean Philips (Marvel Zombies, Criminal) bring the Marvel Zombies back in Marvel Zombies 2 #1 (of 5!). The new series takes place forty years after the original. I stole these images, so don’t tell anyone. They were like, you can’t save that. And I was like “PRINT SCREEN ACTIVATE!”
