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.
Well, here is the strangest 2015 event yet – Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies. So what do you think? Zombies vs. Robots has already been done at IDW Publishing, and it seems to be enough of a success that Marvel wants to cash in on the event. via Marvel

Or – “All Things Must Come To An End…” So, another wave of zombie madness has fallen upon the Marvel Universe, and several of Marvel’s 70’s monster heroes have united to stop them.Â Of course, having inoculated themselves with the zombie virus, they could easily turn sides and eat each other, which leads to some uncomfortable conversations here and there.Â Zombie Deadpool is onboard, and things are about to wrap up the hard way.Â Taking bets now as to who will be standing at the end…
Or – “We Hold These Comics To Be Self-Evident…” Today is American Independence Day, commonly referred to as July 4th, as it takes place on the 4th of July, hence the name, and that’s why the song is called Alice’s Restaurant… To all the faithful Spoilerites of the United States, Happy 4th of July. For those of you who are from elsewhere, sorry about all the hegemony and stuff. Either way, it’s time for another bout of our Rapid Fire Reviews, bite-sized chunks of comics that I either couldn’t write three paragraphs about, or ran out of time to cover.
Or – “OH, GNAAAAAAAAAAARRRRLY!!” It’s so easy to blow up your problems, it’s so easy to play up your breakdown.Â It’s so easy to fly through a window, it’s so easy to fool with the sound.Â Life’s the same, I’m moving in stereo…Â Life’s the same, except for my shoes.Â Life’s the same, you’re shakin’ like tremolo.Â Life’s the same, it’s all inside you.Â Life’s the same, I’m moving in stereo…Â Life’s the same, except for my shoes.Â Life’s the same, you’re shakin’ like tremolo.Â Life’s the same, it’s all inside you!
Or – “Not To Be Confused With Marvel Zombies 1 #4, or Marvel Zombies 3 #2…” The first Marvel Zombies miniseries was a revelation,Â Dead Days was excellent, and the Army of Darkness crossover weirdly interesting.Â The Fantastic Four issues were disappointing, andÂ Marvel Zombies 2 ended up beingÂ a huge blow to the success of the franchise, making it all seem lame and silly, an effect which I reasoned came from moving the characters to the Marvel Universe proper, and removing all chance that the monsters would win again.Â Marvel Zombies 3, however, managed to recapture some of the fun, the drama,
This week finds Marvel releasing the fourth issue of the third installment of the Marvel Zombies saga.Â This series finds the undead heroes and villains finding a gateway to the Marvel 616 universe, and if I were to guess, nothing will ever be the same…again! Take the jump for a sneak peek of the issue directly from the House of Ideas.
Or – “How Aaron Got His Groove Back…” The strip-mining of Marvel’s 2006 surprise monster hit (pun fully intended) continues apace, with the dead folks engineering several brilliant strokes, even finding a way to crack the dimensional barrier into the regular Marvel Universe (which, now that we think of it,Â may beÂ the first real proof that the 616 and Ultimate Universes actually HAVE the ability to crossover, even through an intermediary) and finding ways around the endless hunger within ’em.Â Of course, they’re still $&@%ing flesh-eating monsters, so they got that going for ’em.Â Which is nice…
