A while ago, Mark Millar spun a tale during his run on Ultimate Fantastic Four in which an alternate reality was introduced in which Marvel's first family were zombified flesh eaters. Well, just imagine if pretty much all of the Marvel universe heroes and villains were the flesh eating undead, only they still had their powers and wits about them. Robert Kirkman, best known for his incredible Walking Dead series, knows a few things about zombies, and the yarn he spins here is one of the guiltiest pleasures you'll ever read. Magneto is seemingly the inly unaffected super-human on the planet, and he's face to face with Captain America, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Giant Man, Luke Cage, Wolverine, Daredevil, Thor, and every other Marvel hero you can name who has been zombified. Soon enough, the Silver Surfer arrives to Earth foretelling of the coming of Galactus who plans to devour the planet. And oh yeah, guess who the Marvel Zombies plan on devouring too. Sometimes predictable, loaded with dark humor, and wonderfully drawn by Sean Philips; Marvel Zombies is a fleshy treat. From Spidey's self loathing ("I can't believe I ate my wife and aunt!") to Giant Man keeping Black Panther alive and sawing off a few parts to eat, Marvel Zombies may not be a Marvel MAX title, but it's definitely not for the squeamish. A big load of fun that's over too quick, Marvel Zombies is a worthy pick up for longtime Marvel readers looking to see the company's icons in a different, slightly decomposed light.

I just recieved this a few days ago, and I'm very pleased with my purchase. I never got a chance to read the actual comics...being that I live in a one horse town where there is no chance of ever having a comic book store. So that being said....please forgive me my comic brothers for only being familiar with this graphic novel?
I was very suprised at how well the writers transfered our favorite hero's into super monsters and yet still retained some or more of thier former personality. The way Spiderman still had his wit...and his guilt for things he had done. The art was outstanding too. The way the heros where destroyed versions of thier former selves, and the villians hadn't really changed all the much....notice the hobgoblin who looked no different.
Magnetos character was played out perfectly, it was amazing how he still had his elitist personality right up until his end. It's exactly how I would have expected him to go out.
I would definately recommend this title to anyone who loves comics/horror and may be looking for something a little different. Also, if you haven't already, make sure you check out the Walking Dead series, also by Robert Kirkman. I've never been a fan of the Fantastic Four, but intend to start the Ultimate Fantastic Four series just to see how all this started as well as the Exiles #85-86 concerning the Zombie Wolverine crossover.

I've been a big fan of Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" series for quite some time. When I heard he'd written a mini-series about undead Marvel super beings, I had to have a look at it. Instead of buying the individual comics, I waited until this collection came out. It was worth the delay.

The tale begins with text, explaining that a worldwide event has changed almost all super powered beings, good and bad, into flesh-eating zombies. Unfortunately for humanity, their former heroes (and villains) have retained their powers and intellect. So it doesn't take long for the super-charged living dead to depopulate the earth in their quest for food. We join the action in the midst of a mad zombie pursuit of Magneto, who is one of the last of the uninfected. Things go downhill from there, especially when the Silver Surfer and Galactus show up. Only the hungriest will win.

Mr. Kirkman does a great job with the warped characterizations of our favorite Marvels. He preserves their personalities and abilities in the midst of the horror so that we can be sympathetic and repulsed at the same time. In addition, dark humor pervades the proceedings. For example, Spider-Man retains his usual angst and guilt. However, instead of Uncle Ben's death being the catalyst for self-loathing, it's now due to eating his wife and aunt. Captain (now Colonel) America and Iron Man are still canny leaders, but here they excel at organizing scavenging runs for scarce human food vs. defeating super-villains. Can they be stopped? There is a former comrade who may be able to save what's left of humanity - if he can get free from Giant Man's lab/kitchen somewhat intact...

"Marvel Zombies" is another undead triumph from Robert Kirkman.

In the beginning there was an incident (spelled out in the 1-shot comic "dead Days" that is available now) that began spreading a contagion unlike any that the world had ever seen. Zombies began appearing, first The Avengers and then those that came in contact with The Avengers, until the heroes found themselves outnumbered, in hiding, and then non-existent. Quoting the beginning of the book, "after they ran out of food, Reed Richards devised a plan to lure his counterpart from another dimension into a deadly trap," basically allowing him to eat him. The plan was foiled by Magneto, however, and this begins the part where mutants turn on mutants as a source of food and where the Earth trembles under the weight of flesh-devourers - and a Herald of something more.

When I first read Marvel Zombies, I was shocked by what I found. I honestly was surprised that Marvel allowed the book to be printed in the first place - and then to basically turn their beloved characters into flesh-eating zombies that were bent on hunting down survivors just to satiate their hunger for a few more minutes? It was such a beautiful thing. I also found the work of Robert Kirkman to be amazing - I was accustomed to his work with his series The Walking Dead and I have to say that this totally blew it out of the water. This isn't to say that Kirkman's work isn't good, to the contrary The Walking Dead is a storyline that keeps a reader coming back BUT the addition of Sean Phillips as the artist and June Chung as the colorist seems to have added a little something more (Walking Dead was done in Black and White, By the Way).
