Marvel Comics Announces "Marvel Zombies Destroy!"


699 If anything, the Marvel Zombies series of books have been a whole heck of a lot of fun.

I've enjoyed them, and the last, Marvel Zombies Supreme, even featured the return of fan-favorite character, the Jack of Hearts!

Now Marvel, via Newsarama, has announced a new five issue mini in May, Marvel Zombies Destroy!, bringing back writer Frank Marraffino with new Zombies artist Mirco Pierfederici (Ruse, Dark Wolverine).

This time, the series will feature a world where the Nazis won WWII - zombie style! And the forces of A.R.M.O.R, consisting of Battlestar, Howard the Duck, Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the "Ducky's Dozen," will come face to face with these zombie-powered Nazis! 

Marvel Editor Jake Thomas compares Destroy! to the Robert Kirkman original as well as Fred Van Lente's run on Zombies.

"To me, the early Kirkman Marvel Zombies stories were these huge, epic apocalypse tales where the most powerful protectors of good had all turned, and what happens when those heroes are infected with an evil, all-consuming hunger," Thomas told Newsarama. "The Van Lente stories were more about prevention, with a group of plucky heroes fighting to contain, cure or destroy the zombie plagues. What I think we’re doing with Marvel Zombies Destroy! is combing those two approaches."
