In light of the recent posts from[personal profile] history79 I figured I'd share the first 'Marvel Zombies' miniseries which branched off from 'Ultimate Fantastic Four'.

'Marvel Zombies' was a pretty fun idea at first. I think Marvel deserves some kudos for letting their characters be used in such a horrific fashion and Kirkman really went wild with the concept in ways that Millar did not. Plus they got to 'own' the term when prior Marvel Zombies was a pejorative term for Marvel fans.

Of course, Marvel is as Marvel does and they ran the franchise into the ground. They've released five versions of the same hardcover with different covers for collectors. There have been over 50 issues at this point that feature the zombies in one form or another. I think at one point there was a "Marvel Apes vs Marvel Zombies" miniseries to get an idea of how far it's gone.

Disclaimer: The following story is very gory and features tons of zombie-related violence. But you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

This was a really hard choice I was remembering how many great Else Worlds there where in the crop of annuals from '94, and I already posted my favourite What If to use for favourite male character... This one ranks a little bit lower for me but it's still a neat concept.

The Beyonder and Galactus kill each other and Reed Richards in the final battle of the Secret Wars leaving the heroes trapped on that strange world. 25 years later there is peace, and a new generation of super powered youngsters.

Remember kids: when a limo with diplomatic plates offers you a lift in New York City -- DON'T GET IN. It's a creepy super-villain who just wants to use you for your body.

scans from The Incredible Hulk 143 )

 

PS: These scans came from The Incredible Hulk DVD-Rom Collection from 2007. I mention this because: 1) Marvel deserves a shout-out for authorizing such a fantastic product (although unfortunately I think it may be out of print), and 2) If there is anything specific you'd like to see I've probably got it on here; feel free to leave a request in this post.

Marvel have a LOT of publicity going for their Guardians of the Galaxy characters, and with the likes of Chris Pratt (who kept the Star Lord costume so he could make Hospital visits to sick kids in it), some very good PR, so I can only applaud them for this

WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH #13 features a fight between Drax the Destroyer and the Professor Hulk. This is when Drax was child-like (as a result of being resurrected via the Soul Gem) and when the Hulk was smart (either merged Hulk or a brand new alternate personality, depending on who you ask).

Some speculation about the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie and its connection to the greater MCU after the cut.

How much of Arthur Douglas is there? )

'Stan and Jack created something fifty years ago that nobody in comics had ever done. They created the very first tragic superhero. Thing has a little tragedy to him as well, but he had a family and friends. Bruce Banner was the absolute tragic hero, the first of them.

'The problem there is that for the next fifty years, especially now — go to the New 52 and throw a stick and try not to hit somebody who thinks their powers are a curse. It’s become so played out and so cliché in my mind, the whole “woe is me, I have superpowers and it’s terrible..."'

Hi folks!

Time for another humor issue from Marvel--out this month, so four representative pages beneath the cutline.



Not included here...the X-Men have a team-building exercise. )

In The Incredible Hulk #143-144, Dr. Doom kidnaps and brainwashes Bruce Banner in hopes of Bruce making him a gamma bomb. But, like a lot of Incredible Hulk stories, #144 shifts the focus onto a different protagonist: Doom's love interest Valeria, who is also an unwilling guest.
...and Valeria is NHF Doom's shenanigans )

'The phrase "faith in a higher power" is like nails on a blackboard to me, partly because my life and my interests are defined by science and hard knowledge, and partly (I'm sure) because as a kid growing up in the Bible Belt, I had a lot of first-hand experience with seeing how often "faith in a higher power" becomes an excuse to not take responsibility for your own decisions. (That's a generalization, and I know that, but we're talking about the programming I received as a kid, which is hard to shake.)'

'Or, Graeme, to put it all way more succinctly than that—on a personal level, I have little if any use for faith.'
