MACHINE MAN IS BACK! Zombies of the multiverse, watch your rotting backs! To obtain a cure for the zombie virus for Morbius the Living Vampire, Aaron Stack, Agent of ARMOR, must traverse alternate realities hunting down the plague in all its myriad forms...with a most unusual (but somehow oddly appropriate) partner! First up: in the Alterniverse known as "The Territory," the Old West never died.

    After one issue I'm already inclined to label Marvel Zombies Vol. 5 as my second favorite entry in the franchise. This book only has the wonderfully wicked Vol. 3 to compete with now, and I have a good deal of hope it will be able to surpass it. The series continues to be a great outlet for Van Lente's twisted brand of humor and a worthy read for those who like their comics to amuse and appall in equal measure. Read Full Review
