Originally reviewed on The Raving Asgardian
After proving that there was more to Marvel Zombies than Robert Kirkman’s first two miniseries, Fred Van Lente continued the madness with Marvel Zombies 4 .
In this installment, the zombie plague has started to spread in Marvel 616 Earth from zombie universe. But a motley crew of supernatural powered operatives, the Midnight Sons (and 1 daughter), were keeping the infection at bay thanks to a vaccine and their natural resistance to the plague. However, their timetable to eradicate the virus was advanced because one mysterious party seeks to weaponize the virus and create its own zombie enforcers.
Van Lente’s Zombie work stands out because he wasn’t able to use Marvel’s more popular characters. Instead his stories are crafted with lower tier characters that no writer was currently using. But he shows his writing chops by telling an engaging story without the use of the big guns. He was able to dust off these characters whose heydays were in the 70’s and 80’s. It shows the breadth of his knowledge of classic Marvel lore.
This story is signature Van Lente. He weaves a horror story with character moments and flavored it with humor. The humor is darker, but appropriate as the art by Kev Walker to the story.
Though this was a short series, it still got the oversized trim treatment, but Marvel did add to page count by including the original Marvel Zombie, Simon Garth in his Marvel debut all in its black and white glory. This was certainly appreciated since that issue was rarely reprinted.
Deadpool fanatics may also want to check this miniseries out. The severed head of Marvel Zombie Deadpool played a key role in the story before he moved on to star with regular Deadpool in another Deadpool spinoff.
This is my Halloween reading for 2012.
Read information about the authorVan Lente was raised by a mystery-loving mother (who preferred Dorothy Sayers to Agatha Christie, but we won't hold that against her) and a wisecracking Woody Allen-lookalike scientist father in what appears to be some kind of genetic experiment to write his first novel, TEN DEAD COMEDIANS, even though neither parent nor the son himself would know it for many years.
Van Lente spent his time between birth and authoring Ten Dead Comedians becoming the #1 New York Times best selling writer of graphic novels like Cowboys & Aliens (the basis of the feature film), Odd is on Our Side with Dean R. Koontz, and the gorily funny Marvel Zombies series.
He did some other things too, but they hardly seem worth mentioning.
