When Galactus' corpse appears at the edge of Earth's solar system, the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four investigate. Too late, they discover that Galactus' body is now the vessel of an interstellar terror, which one-by-one transforms Earth's Mightiest Heroes into the universe's most terrifying predators! As our heroes try to escape the superpowered, cannibalistic aberrations that were once their friends and family, will any survive? And even if they do, can they hope to protect Earth from the infestation that has already claimed half of the known universe?

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 30, 2019

    Leonard Kirk's art is amazing. He does an amazing job of tapping into the tension of the story visually and the way the art moves the story is brilliant. The reveal of the horror in this issue is beautifully done. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 29, 2019

    I was surprised to find a bonafide scary and unnerving story here without the conventional over-the-top gore or visual horror gags. This is a story to be taken seriously and the deaths feel pertinent even though the true purpose of the story is yet to be revealed. Props to the creative team for making it feel as though the deaths matter, even if it doesn't quite hook you just yet. This isn't a scary story about zombies, but a scary story about death.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Oct 30, 2019

    This reviewer recommends picking this story up and adding it to your pull list, especially if youve loved MARVEL ZOMBIES in the past, DCEASED over at DC Comics right now, other zombie tales, or are interested in an ElseWorld-type story where the writer can let loose without any repercussions or continuity issues.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 30, 2019

    Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 proves that there's always something new under the sun, particularly when you entrust your zombie yarn to top-flight creators. It's a slow-burning, nerve-wracking story that successfully taps the cosmic horror feel of the first Alien movie before exploding into disastrous, deadly carnage. There is lots of terror still to come … and this grandiose introduction promises intellectual as well as visceral scares in the future. Read Full Review

    Paving a new approach to the lore, setting the stage for exciting developments, and delivering compelling imagery, Marvel Zombies: Resurrection could become the most effective incarnation of the series since its debut. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 30, 2019

    The issue is a solid debut perfect for the Halloween season. It has some beats that are familiar but that's part of the fun. This takes what works from horror and the zombie genres and blends it together with the superhero genre. It all comes together for a debut that I want to immediately want to read more of.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Colin Tessier Oct 29, 2019

    Between a compelling mystery and art that's ripped right from a horror movie, Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 is the total package. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Nov 4, 2019

    Even if we're all tired of zombies by now, and even if the art isn't as violent and as gory as we might like, Marvel finds ways to maintain their unique twist on the genre and gives us a meaner, nastier, hungrier zombie horde that is starving for the flesh of Marvel heroes. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 30, 2019

    While its timing and its artwork don't necessarily do the book any favors, there's lots of potential to this series, particularly thanks to its stalwart writer " and given that the rising body counts often act as a force multiplier for series like these, chances are Marvel Zombies will shake off some of its rigor mortis in its relentless shamble to your local comic book shop.
