It's time for another zom-Marvel-mini! I'm pretty Marvel Zombied out but this issue and plot wasn't that bad.
It's more "28 Days Laterish" this time around. Plus I think Frank really works in a "Last Man" story.
4 pages, enjoy!
So the world has been taken over by tribal, cannibalistic predators. It was a virus. Frank Castle is one of the few unaffected humans left. This virus spread quickly to humans and super-humans. Spider-Man was patient zero. The affected aren't zombies in the traditional senses, more like Hills Have Eyes/Crossed maniacs.
Oh and this is all Frank's fault.
He attacks a Russian Mafia gathering where he thinks they're dealing in WMDs.
That is how the virus begins to spread.
It consumes the world and Frank is still in NY hunting down the Super-Maniacs. Spidey has taken over a section of NY with his "harem". (Tarantula, Black Widow, Spider-Woman) He puts out the body of an uninfected person.
I like it. I'll be picking up the series.
Cover for the next issue. Oh Frank, you do get in over your head.
