God, I like Robert Kirkman. He’s one of those guys I’m really happy is doing well, because he’s an awesome talent. But while the Walking Dead TV series was the project that made him blow up, he’s had tons of wonderful works to his name before and since, for a number of companies. So herein are a bunch of super great comics and series you can check out, especially if you want in on the next big thing after Walking Dead.
Kirkman is a dude who’s made awesome books covering an insanely diverse range of tones and subjects, so the odds that you’ll like at least one of them are insanely high. Especially since one of them features a dinosaur in power armor.
10. Marvel Zombies
A good number of you maybe just spit out your coffee all over your desktops. “What what WHAT?!!! The Walking Dead guy made a comic book about Marvel Superheroes fighting zombies?!!?”
And the answer to that is yes, kinda, not in the way you’re assuming, but yes.
So it isn’t “The Walking Dead with Marvel Superheroes” it’s actually a pitch-black dark comedy about zombified Marvel Superheroes. And it’s hilarious. From whiney Spider-Man moping about how he ate MJ and Aunt May, to Bruce Banner only Hulking out when he’s hungry, this thing is beautiful.
When the story picks up, the zombie plague is pretty much over and there are few to no un-zombified people left on earth. But when a mysterious silver figure on a surfboard descends from the sky, things take a turn for the crazy. The crazy AWESOME, that is.
There have been a bunch of follow-up Marvel Zombies comics, but the original mini would be the one to check out. It’s a fun read that goes for funny more than spooky, but it’s all the better for it.
