    Is it for everyone? No. But for those with a dark sense of humor and a taste for the macabre, it is a fantastically fun read that goes quickly and leaves you wanting more. Buy it if you love gallows humor and you are not afraid of seeing your heroes tarnished. Read Full Review

    Ive enjoyed the first Marvel Zombies and the Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness comics. But the humor has finally worn out. We readers have spent two years with these monsters, and its just not funny anymore. Im hoping this will be end of the zombie craze at Marvel. There comes a point where death isnt funny anymore. And we passed that point after zombie Howard the Duck ate Bruce Campbells brains. Youre just not going to top that. Read Full Review

    So, basically, what Im saying is, if you like zombies, particularly the first Marvel Zombies series, then you should probably give this a shot. Theres a chance you might be burnt out on the concept, but give it a try anyway. I think it will win you over. Its a good, solid start to what will hopefully be another horribly disgusting, over-the-top zombie extravaganza. Read Full Review

    At this point any Marvel Zombies comic is going to appeal to a specific audience, and you know who you are. Personally, I don't think I'll ever be interested in another issue unless the zombies cross dimensions and start munching on DC characters. But for the rest of you, the prospect of a new Kirkman-penned zombie book must be plenty appealing. Rest easy knowing this is no worse than the original. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a fairly entertaining comic book, even if the story isnt as engaging as it could be. This comic book seems full of potential with many story possibilities, and it will be interesting to read the next installment. Read Full Review

    After the massive popularity of Marvel Zombies, a backlash was perhaps inevitable - but Im not giving this issue such an average score for that reason. Thankfully, the Marvel Zombies craze is a phenomenon that Ive mostly managed to avoid, and as such I havent become as tired of the concept as I might have been if Id read every zombie-based storyline or bought every comic with a Sudyam variant cover. Still, the fact that Im not predisposed to dislike this series doesnt alter my general impression that this sequel is milking a concept which was always going to be a limited-lifespan novelty to begin with. This first issue is not particularly notable (although its not particularly heinous either), but the general sense that its more of the same as we saw in the original Marvel Zombies means that it will probably be welcomed by the legions of fans that bought into the original. For everyone else, though, this is a cash-in sequel which seems likely to suffer from the law of dimini Read Full Review
