Marvel Zombies



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?

Loki: Agent of Asgard #10



In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains: The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth. Now, Loki’s brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki. This is it.

31 Days of Scans: Favourite Multiverse story- The Secret Wars 25 years later-



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.

Thor #356



Hello Scans Daily! This is my first time actually posting any pages from anything, so with luck I won't screw up and need to do a lot of editing afterwards. I should also warn you that while there are no triggers in this story, I'm gonna recap the pages that I don't post pretty thoroughly, and YMMV on whether that's a good thing or not.

Nova asks more questions

I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.



As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

Avengers: Heroes Welcome

This a one-shot that's available for free on the Marvel comics app or on Marvel Unlimited. I thought it was an interesting response to the more 'cynical' approach to superheroes and the criticism of "How come they're not stopping poverty/war/disease, etc?"

That time the Avengers fought the heroes of Vietnam

Hi folks, let's go back to 1974 and the country of Vietnam. A country that had seen far too much war, and was about to see more.



"Wait," you say, "The Slasher? Who he?" He's also known as Buzzsaw and Razorblade, and this is his debut appearance. Six pages of eighteen in Avengers #130.
