Picking up after Marvel Zombies 2, Marvel Zombies: The Return doesn't really continue the story of the "Alpha Zombies" so much as it hastily draws the Marvel Zombies series to a conclusion. It almost seems like Marvel has grown tired of the Marvel Zombies phenom and decided "Let's just end it quick". Virtually none of the loose ends left by MZ2 are addressed, as the story follows only Spider-man and his quest to atone for the horrific past actions of himself and his zombie cohorts. Transported to an alternate universe designated as "Earth-Z", Spider-man and the rest of the surviving Alpha Zombies are scattered throughout the cosmos. From this point onward, the individual chapters of the story switches focus onto other characters, namely Giant Man, and Earth Z's Iron Man and Wolverine.Read more ›
So, this series really puts a stop to the original Marvel Zombies storyline. But, it's a good ending to the series.Read more ›
The problem? The story. It jumps around. It never develops. It follows no one to any depth. It is very weak. Yet, it is worlds better than the first two books by Kirkam. Believe it or not! The dialogue is much better than Marvel Zombies 1 and 2. No more stupid jokes. No more irrelevant and distracting stupidity. This one treats the situation with a bit more gravitas, and it makes the read more fulfilling. Kirkman's flops were a big disappointment--as if written half-heartedly with an insatiable desire to be silly.
If you love Marvel and love zombies, this book is an interesting artistic display--not so much a great story as a series of scenes drawn well and fun to look at. Good zombies attack bad zombies throughout multiple dimensions. Then it all ends. Abruptly. Thanks to The Watcher. No explanation how. Frrrt.
Not fulfilling, but fun. Read it.
Issue #1 features zombie Spider-Man transported to a 1970's Marvel universe. Right off the bat you can tell this will be great! An unrelenting mix of gore, brutal deaths, dark humor, zombie parody, and 1970's style; this is my favorite Marvel Zombies tale which shows just what would happen if Spider-Man and his foes held nothing back! It will send your zombie-senses tingling!
Issue #2 has zombie Giant Man transported to Iron Man's base of operations circa 1979 during his "Demon in a Bottle" story arc.
This issue is pretty much just zombies taking over Stark International while Tony is hopelessly drunk.
Issue #3 is when zombie Wolverine makes his grand entrance in Tokyo, Japan where Kitty Pryde and Wolverine are fighting off the Hand ninjas. Ever wanted to see Wolverine vs. Wolverine? Well here you go!
Issue #4 starts with Hulk on his way back to Earth after the events of Planet Hulk. Hulk is out for blood but only finds a horde of zombies in his path!
Issue #5 is where all the Marvel Zombies finally cross paths. This issue really ties all the others together and has a great surprise which leads to the conclusion of these super powered zombies' stories. I won't spoil anymore!
The Spider-Man chapter alone makes this a great read! If you haven't read the previous Marvel Zombies books, don't worry, this title can stand on its own and won't confuse any newcomers to the Marvel Zombie universe.

Pretty good writing and artistry and I like how they mix and mash the marvel universe with others to put a unique spin on the story and the fights.Published 2 months ago by john kimble
The Marvel Zombies storyline has always seemed pretty stupid to me. Mainly because I hate talking zombies, and zombies that can use super powers just seemed utterly ridiculous to... Read morePublished 12 months ago by zombie phreak
