I read Marvel: Zombies about a day ago....and it was a very odd experience overall. I'm gonna switch into review mode for a minute here, so sorry if I sound like my opinion is the law or something (because it most surely isn't).
I approached Marvel: Zombies with a odd with of great expectation and dread. On one hand, I had heard a large amount of praise for it, but I was wary of an opposite dimension full of Zombies (how I usually approach horror movies in this day and age). When I started, a few things hit me, very quickly.....one being, this book is seriously messed up. Not neccessarily a bad thing. But, one of the other things that hit me, this comic is probably the only that has ever made me....well, sympathize (sp?) for the so called villains. It was a very smart choice indeed, to have most of the story take place following the Zombies. It made me feel that instead of stupid monsters, they were simply people in a very, very unfortunate situation. Throughout the entire comic, I was torn between what exactly it was supposed to be. Was it a horror/action mixture with some grimness chucked in? Or moreso a horror/action shocker-comedy? I was constantly switching between these two mixed genres (it really hit me with the comical moments with Magneto fighting the Zombies. Then it switched to the former genre when he was torn apart). The writing was, for the most part, spot on (the heros-no, Zombies that survived where what I woulda chosen also. Well, mostly). However.....Surfer losing to the Zombies? Mmmm....nah. Neither with Galactus. Meh, easy to overlook. Despite how really freaking weird this book was, it was much more entertaining than most horror movies made today. It was an entertaining read......just not the kind I'd readily go back to (except, maybe, for Army Of Darkness/Marvel: Zombies). I'd give it a healthy 7/10.
Anyway....that's my opinion on M:Z. Kinda found it a little overrated from some of the talk on it, but it was still very entertaining. Please, post and give me your comments and thoughts.
