Board up Avengers Tower! Lock down the Baxter Building! The ravenous hordes of Marvel Zombies are invading ... the Marvel Universe! That's right, the next chapter of the MZ saga is a non-stop in-continuity gorefest with major implications for at least one Marvel hero! When the super-undead stumble into the MU from the Man-Thing's Nexus of All Realities, all of Florida is quarantined against the zombie plague. Time is quickly running out for a cure, so the Initiative sends a most unlikely group of heroes into the Zombieverse on a desperate mission to find the one item they need before the whole MU is consumed! The scream team of Fred Van Lente (INCREDIBLE HERCULES) and Kev Walker (ANNIHILATION: NOVA) unite for a Marvel Zombies story like you've never seen before!
in the blog you can clearly see the appearance of Zombie Dead pool.
I definitely got a chuckle out of the "Merc with half a mouth" line. But yeah, this series needs more Deadpool. And with the zombies invading the 616 MU proper, the series almost HAS to take a more serious tone, which kinda defeats its purpose. Definitely going into this one with a sense of skepticism.
The Face of Battle is one of the most riveting (and sobering) works of history I've ever read. NYT obit: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/03/books/sir-john-keegan-historian-who-put-a-face-on-war-dies-at-78.html?pagewanted=all
