Following up on October's Marvel Zombies: Resurrection one-shot, Marvel has announced (as planned) a Marvel Zombies: Resurrection four-issue mini-series by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Leonard Kirk, kicking off in April. The series will see the zombie plague reach the planet Earth as our heroes do their best to stop it, a press release from Marvel.com explains:
Last October, Galactus' corpse appeared at the edge of Earth's solar system, and the Avengers, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four were called to investigate. Too late, they discovered that Galactus' body was the vessel of an interstellar terror, which transformed Earth's Mightiest Heroes into the universe's most terrifying predators. As heroes escaped the superpowered cannibalistic aberrations that were once their friends and family, they retreated to Earth, hoping to protect it from the coming infestation…
And this April, the colossal cadaver finally arrives in MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION #1!
Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson with art by Leonard Kirk, the mag kickstarts a four-issue limited series that will pit Spider–Man and a ragtag group of heroes against the carriers of this cannibalistic virus as they attempt to save survivors and uncover the truth behind these harrowing happenings.
Here's what Johnson has to say about it:
I couldn't be more thrilled to be writing MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION, or to be working with the amazing Leonard Kirk again. The original MARVEL ZOMBIES made such an impact on fans when it came out, and now Marvel has been kind enough to let me do my own take on it. And although there's a lot there for fans of the original, it's a very different take. MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION is an all-in horror series, with tension that doesn't let up and a cast of characters who have become like family to each other, none of whom are safe.
In the MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION one-shot, we saw Earth's Mightiest Heroes travel into space to investigate a mysterious threat, leading to horrifying consequences. In the miniseries, we're showing readers what came next: for the doomed characters in the one-shot, for the ones they left behind on Earth, and for the rest of the Marvel Universe.
It looks like everyone is gonna die in April. Check out the cover by In-Hyuk Lee below:
