Bill Jemas Is Writing Ultimate Comics Again, Folks

He co-plotted and co-conceived Ultimate Spider-Man. He wrote Marville. And, as many Marvel creators at the time can attest, he meddled with the stories of all sorts of Marvel books at the time.

He then also wrote a children's book, Wake The F— Up, distributed by Zenescope, that he hoped would have a similar impact to Go The F— To Sleep. It did not.

But now the ex-publisher of Marvel Comics who helped save them from bankruptcy is back writing comic books for Double Take, the comic book spinoff of Take Two Interactive.

And for July, there are two titles with his name on the writing credits. Slab and Spring. Based on the Night Of The Living Dead movie, though it is in public domain, they have taken no chances and decided to to use the name in their titles… instead using the group title Ultimate Night Of The Living Dead, a reference to the Marvel line he started and that is currently facing its own death.

What an appropriate time for Jemas to start an Ultimate zombie line?
