Marvel Zombies Return #1, Will You Return To Buying It?

G-Man reviews the first issue of the "return."

Marvel Zombies Return!  Has their time passed?  Is there any room on the comic shop shelves for yet another Marvel Zombie comic?  I did buy the last couple series but they didn't quite have enough to fully suck me in.  I was extremely hesitant to pick up this series.  I decided to go for it.  Is this just more of the same?
 

  
Did you pick up this issue?  I think since I didn't fully read the last couple series, I've almost had a break from the Zombies.  I've heard that people are getting tired of them.  I was pleasantly surprised with this.  Is this the best issue ever?  No.  Of course not.  I did enjoy it.  It did make me laugh due to its sick humor.  We are seeing a bit of progress to the original Marvel Zombies' storyline.  Will that be enough to keep the series fresh?  While I did enjoy this issue, I'm still concerned if next week's issue can keep this up.

Harry's looking all John Holmes. There is something about Zombie Spidey that works.  Sort of like how Zombie Deadpool's head was perfect for the Deadpool series.
I haven't see the issue, but I'm guessing that Zombie Spidey leaves somebody's skin or bloody costume of a villain in a trash as he's walking away.

Meh, they need to cut it out. They've beaten the dead horse, and the like the subject matter itself, the thing keeps rising from the grave. I loved the original and the Army of Darkness crossover, the sequel sucked, and I've only heard mixed things on three and four. They've gotten their popular little spin-off with "Headpool", they need to now leave it alone before the entire concept implodes.

This was great. Van Lente has breathed new air into the series. Good work.

Nope, I'm more into Dark Reign.  This is kind of dumb, overused, and it was never a great idea to begin with.

Hmm sounds like it could be cool, no room on my pull list right now though. I might be all marvel zombied out anyways
Edited by crazed_h3ro

I really think the retro-throwback art style is refreshing. I'd like to see more like it.

I don't understand Marvel Zombies. Is it just guys like Wolverine and Spider-Man eating people?

I love how this issue reads like a silver age comic until the chaos ensues. Oh man and what Sandman does the non-zombie Spidey, BRUTAL.

I bought the trade of the first Zombies a few weeks back, really enjoyed it but have heard mixed things from many about the sequals but i am now tempted to pick this up.

Posted by InnerVenom123

It was soooooo awesome! Seeing Spider-man explode was so fun! I stared at that set of panels for hours.... okay, not really XD

Posted by KasadyCarnage

I like the parody of the costume in the garbage scene
Posted by DEADPOOL

I didn't even know know about this, I was in the comic shop and saw it. I didn't have the money to buy it, but I did skim through it and... this actually depressed me. I don't think I can afford the series right now, especially if it's coming out weekly. I'll have to try to grab it when they come out in a volume.
 
And Zombie Spider-Man, I'm really disappointed in you.

Posted by Hellos

I feel bad for this universe's version of Spidey, Sandman did one hell of a number on him. Quite painful indeed, didn't response quickly enough, and payed for it.

Posted by Joe Venom

Great review G-man, I also said that I would skip this arc, but once I skimmed thought it and saw Zombie Parker turn Vulture into a human wishbone (and the freaky vein thing) I had to have this issue I just hope the others are just as good if not better.

I did and wasn't impressed. The first one was ok, didn't even get through all of number 2 which I got also. It just didn't do anything for me so i doubt i'l get 3 onwards.
