What are Robert Kirkman and Mark Millar Doing in Marvel's April Solicitations?!

April sees the launch of a new Marvel Zombies mini-series, Marvel Zombies Resurrection, not to be confused with Marvel Zombies Resurrection, the one-shot that came out last year. Try to follow along here. But that's not the only Marvel Zombies comic hitting stores in April. Yes, the upcoming super-mega-crossover event Empyre with a Y may be getting all the attention, but Marvel Zombies can get some love too. There's a line of Marvel Zombies variant covers running throughout several unconnected books in April. And also, Marvel is also celebrating Marvel Zombies with an issue of Marvel Tales.

Marvel Tales: The Original Marvel Zombies #1 will reprint the story by Mark Millar and Greg Land from Ultimate Fantastic Four #21-23 as well as Marvel Zombies #1 (2005) by Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips. That's right, once upon a time, Scottish streaming mogul Mark Millar and Kentucky TV baron Robert Kirkman were lowly Marvel Comics writers, churning out work-for-hire like a couple of chumps. And now we can relive those glorious days for the low price of eight bucks!

Check out the solicit below, and Marvel's full April solicitations here.

Marvel to Publish a Comic by Robert Kirkman and Mark Millar in April

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
