We already know the Age of Ultron and Marvel Zombies are crashing into one another when Battleworld kicks off, but Marvel knows its Marvel Zombies property continues to be hot, hot, hot, which is why Marvel Zombies #1 will land in our labs in June.
The Secret Wars tie-in story will be written by Simon Spurrier with art by Kev Walker, according to the publisher.
She is Elsa Bloodstone, one of the fiercest monster-hunters Battleworld has ever seen. Burdened with the task of keeping the zombie hordes to the south from rampaging through Battleworld, she patrols the borders from high atop the Shield. Day in and day out she fights and claws to keep the world safe, knowing that setting one foot into that hellish landscape means certain death. That is, until she spots a human girl among the corpses.
Knowing what untold horrors await her on the other side, she flings herself into the shambling hordes. But once she’s in, she’ll have to fight her way out…
Marvel Zombies, played out or still fresh? I think the fact that Marvel has kept new tales of the Marvel Zombieverse to a minimum these last couple of years is a plus, so fans should scramble to get their hands on this, right?
“If you want an awesome book about an incredible woman digging deep into her own crumbling reserves to smash, blast and sneak her way through legions of your favorite Marvel personalities, corrupted into gurgling cackling brain-hungry insaniacs – then this is the book for you,” says writer Simon Spurrier in a prepared statement.
I liked the first two Marvel Zombies adventures, so I may grab this first issue just to see how quickly the zombies take over Battleworld.
