Marvel has marketed the upcoming Secret Wars as an end to their world, so what's an apocalypse without a few zombies?
On Thursday Marvel announced via BloodyDisgusting its newest addition to the expansive line of Secret Wars series - Marvel Zombies by Si Spurrier and Kevin Walker. Planned for a June debut, Marvel Zombies (the second Secret Wars title to 'co-star' Marvel Zombies ) features Nextwave alum Elsa Bloodstone serving on the southern barrier in Secret Wars' Battleworld known as the Shield against an encroaching zombie horde.
No, this isn't Game of Thrones.
Spurrier says the story of Marvel Zombies works on two fronts - one of Bloodstone fighting against the encroaching zombies while protecting a "vulnerable young companion," while the other is Elsa struggling with the memory of her father, Ulysses Bloodstone.
"[The outside journey is] packed with festering, corrupted, undead versions of your favorite Marvel characters, in whose rheumy eyes and Elsa and her young xharge are just a convenient moveable snack. Into this portion of the journey we're throwing putrid wads of horror, incredible action and some really creative evil. I'm actually rather proud of some of the inventive nastiness I've got planned."
