This next set of covers are some that I’ve been avoiding using because I don’t think they really count as swipes. In 2006, Marvel decided to release a series where all the characters in the Marvel Universe had been zombified. I never read the whole series even though the subject is right in my wheelhouse. I am a huge fan of zombies or the undead and obviously love the Marvel superheroes. For some reason the two mixed together didn’t sit well with me.
|If you’re already dead, why would Spider-Man need to save you?|
|Zombie Spider-Man is pissed … his web hasn’t caught any brains!|
|Zombie Spider-Man no more!|
|Watching Zombie Bruce Banner change into Zombie Hulk must be especially gruesome … yuck!|
|I guess my biggest problem with the zombified covers is the lack of limbs on most of the heroes … it seems like blasphemy to draw them in that manner.|
|Just yuck … Like I said these should be right in my wheelhouse but look at Zombie Wolverine’s eye … He looks terrible!|
|How exactly is Zombie Elektra going to kill Zombie Daredevil? I gues a sai to the head would technically work.|
|The Zombie Cyclops holding his own head is funny I’ll give them that. Maybe I just don’t like Cyclops?|
|Another reason I don’t like the zombie superhero concept … Superheroes themselves are useless … Everyone is dead already! There’s nobody to save.|
|I guess Zombie Mary Jane’s only rival might be Zombie Tramp?|
Do you guys think I’m nuts? Or do these covers just seem terrible to look at? Chime in please!
This is Iñigo taking over to say that, yes, Yoni, you’re nuts. But so am I and I thought I would add the covers for the HC versions of the first series of Marvel Zombies …
Funnily enough, both Yoni and I got to do zombies within 24 hours without discussing it at all. You know how much Yoni hates these zombie covers now, so what do you say we fill the comments section with “more marvel zombies” type of requests?
