    But if not, I have plenty to keep me entertained anyway. This story is delightfully funny (thanks in no small part to Deadpool's head), sports a slick set of pencils from Kev Walker, and it spotlights some cult favorite characters who deserve more attention. There's a lot to like about Marvel Zombies Vol. 4. Is it too early to start looking ahead to Vol. 5? Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy May 5, 2009

    This is another good issue; solid on both the writing and artistic fronts, as Van Lente and Walker make it plainly clear that creative work is almost always more about the execution than the initial concept. Although when both aspects are strong it's a thing of beauty. We're halfway through Marvel Zombies 4 and the two big twists that occur at the end of this issue are, quite frankly, Game Changers. And both make logical sense without being the most obvious places for the story to go. Both Marvel's and DC's Big Event writers could learn a thing or two from Van Lente's work here.
