What's hot on the shelves this Wednesday? DC and Marvel wrapping up their big undead crossovers, Zack Whedon from Dr. Horrible penning the adventures of Kyle Reese, and Spidey vs. the Juggernaut. It's Comics We Crave! Aim for the head!
Marvel Comics' Necrosha launches this week, joining DC's Blackest Night, Marvel's own Marvel Zombies and Dynamite's Super Zombies on the crowded superhero zombie comic stands. But isn't there something... wrong with the idea of superpowered zombies?
First, DC Comics unleashed a legion of undead characters in its Blackest Night event. Now, Marvel has announced Necrosha, an upcoming X-Men storyline that will bring back lots of dead mutants. When did zombie superheroes become the hot new thing?
Think that dead superheroes being resurrected as murderous zombies is limited only to DC's Blackest Night? Think again; Marvel's X-Men franchise is also preparing to be invaded by the undead in time for Hallowe'en.
