Robert Kirkman, the Zombie King of Comics (George A. Romero is still overall zombie king), has written Marvel Zombies 2, slatted for early October. To say I’m excited about this is an understatement.
It seems this sequel will deal with a zombie Civil War. First off, there’s the cover that was floating around for quite some time which is an Arthur Suydam variant of Michael Turner’s Civil War #1 cover.
And then there’s the highly intriguing story line:
Are you ready for Marvel Zombies Civil War? Forty years have passed and the zombies have come back home after eating just about everything else in the universe. Yum yum! What awaits them back on Earth, though, is beyond anything even these shambling monstrosities could have conceived!
Although I was somewhat let down by Marvel Zombies Dead Days (felt like a quick way for Marvel to keep the franchise fresh in our minds), I have faith that Kirkman will meet the same level of quality that the original Marvel Zombies had.
My only worry is that this will turn in to one big money scheme by Marvel. I could see them doing a Marvel Zombies Civil War event in which there are zombie crossovers dealing with their Civil War. At least it would be more interesting than the real Marvel Civil War. That sucker was boring.
