A HUNGER SUPREME! They were the Squadron Supreme, heroes exiled from another dimension to our own…but the twisted science of the Project Pegasus facility infected these defenders with a virulent zombie strain. Now it’s up to Jill Harper’s desperate special ops team to keep the plague contained within the facility—whatever the cost. But Harper discovers that the Squadron wasn’t the only unconscionable experiment being kept off the Pegasus records…and her shocking find may be the key to saving the human race. Join Frank Marrafino (Haunted Tank) and Fernando Blanco (MARVEL ZOMBIES 5, THUNDERBOLTS) as the bodies and unpredictable resurrections climax in the most gore-soaked chapter of the Marvel Zombies saga yet!
So that's the spiel from Marvel so how was it really? Well to be honest I was really let down with issue #1. I have not seen bad writing like this for a while, sure there were the splatter moments we come to expect from this brand of marvel comics. But seriously as the above picture shows..... One liners like this made me think I was reading a comic from the 90's... From the get go and the underground deep leveled scientific "hive" I could see Resident Evil all over this baby... Where were the original stories that kept me hanging in the original... Although you can never really top Zombie Spiderman Eating his family. But I really expected more from this issue
Luckily with issue #2 it got somewhat better but still made me feel like I was watching the Great Lakes Avengers with the amount of unmerited slapstick... The only part that really made me pay attention and that was for pure shock value was the parody of a certain DC universe origin. But the story was flat and formulaic and I am struggling..
Issue #3 was a chore to get through.... With only 2 more issues to go I am pretty certain they can't pull it off.... But if your looking for some light reading with some nice graphic gore bits, and a strange shout out with scenes based in Kansas check it out..Well maybe don;t say I didn't warn you...
Check it out, but if your really looking for a better read and have never read them, check out the original Marvel Zombies now that's how you do a Zombie Comic.
