Do we really need another zombie tale set in the Marvel Universe? According to Fred Van Lente, the answer is yes. In the next installment, one of the zombies escapes from zombie world and stumbles into Marvel 616 territory, thus making Marvel Zombies an in continuity title.
â€œMarvel Zombies 3â€ will focus on a different group of zombies than Kirkman and Phillipsâ€™ books. â€œThis is partly because â€˜MZ3â€™ is set in a very specific period of â€˜MZâ€™ continuity,â€ Van Lente explained. â€œFor fear of giving away too much, Iâ€™m going to tell you when, exactly. But letâ€™s just say the pursuit of sweet, sweet human flesh makes for some odd allies.â€
The four issue mini-series will debut in October. I don’t know about you, but the zombie genre has overstayed its welcome.
