"I consider [Thanos] to be an anti-hero…because he’s been the good guy as often as he’s been the bad guy in the stories. So I don’t consider him a villain. But because he’s not in that hero category I always found him more fascinating to write. I didn’t have to get restricted on where he would go and how he would react to things. I could make him not as appealing as I would have to make him if he were a hero. He could go off on his own little dark ways and it would still make perfect sense." -- Jim Starlin

"Ryan explained to me, he wanted it to be done in our style. He likened and wrote Galactus as Garfield and Norin Radd as Jon. That determined what they were going to look like. When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip." -- Jim Davis

With fan speculation that Sigourney Weaver may be playing Mephisto in the upcoming show The Defenders, I thought it would be neat to revisit one of his first encounters with them, all the way back in Defenders #100...

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?
