'One of the problems a lot of zombie stories face is the lack of agency on the part of the protagonists. That can be a really cool subversion of regular narrative dynamics (and, in one or two toxic cases it chooses to say a lot of very cynical thematic stuff about the pointlessness of individual resistance)… but quite often it’s also just laziness: the “story” consists of people screaming and flapping and running around in a really passive way. When the subtext of your zombie story is “hey, zombies are really scary – cool!” then just don’t bother, y’know?

'We’ve flipped things over a lot, here. All the agency and all the proactivity lies with our heroine. Thematically the zombies aren’t stand-in analogues for the usual societal fears of lone predators or uncontrollable mobs; rather they represent an ambient sea of obstacles. This isn’t a good world which has been invaded by a corruptive element; it’s an irredeemable, unsalvageable land of pure corruption from which Elsa must try to escape.'

"Zombies have been used as a very useful metaphor before now, most often for societal and cultural concerns: corporate greed, media mediocrity, unmoderated science, whatever. With this story I’m far more interested in turning that inside-out and making them useful as the negative ambient force in a far more individualist context. Elsa is very much the star of our show, and the undead hordes of the Deadlands become a really elegant analogue for the emotional and traumatic forces which seek to overwhelm her internal self. She is literally fighting to keep going, inside and out, pushing onwards against deadly inertia and overwhelming odds, because it’s the only way she knows how to survive." -- Si Spurrier

"No one talks about these event comics years down the road unless they are a disaster, cost jobs, and crash the market. Just finished SW 8." - Jonathan Hickman

One of them's the Rose.

The other's the Crime-Master.

Both of them're gonzo masterminds, legacies whose predecessors were gangsters that fought Spider-Man. The Rose menaced Michael Morbius in Joe Keatinge and Richard Elson's take on the Living Vampire, in the same way as the Crime-Master did Flash Thompson in Rick Remender and Tony Moore's Venom.

The threats they presented were different from those of the ones whose names they'd taken.

(Two warnings- first, there's close to forty images under this cut.

Second, there's some violence.)

Theirs were grander in scope and scale. )

"In any story, characters… plot… these things are primary and must be done well for a book to be considered successful, but I think that the stories that are really, really special have themes that resonate." - Jonathan Hickman

'I was looking at my outlines last night and it appears I've done a terrible thing. I've done a bad job, you might say, in that you actually find out some of the answers to some of the biggest mysteries that are out there hanging in "New Avengers" in "Avengers" issues. And some of the big mysteries in "Avengers" are answered in future "New Avengers" issues. Because as the stories get intertwined you find out that the solutions are actually on the other side. So people are going to miss stuff if they're not reading both books. I'm not obviously asking them to read both, but I did in fact screw them if they're not.' - Jonathan Hickman

Still no words yet.  Beware, on Tumbler/4chan someone shoped some in for one page.  Got a bunch of people fooled, but it's an MS paint edit.
