Happy Halloween, everybody! I really should have done this last year, still can’t believe I didn’t think of Marvel Zombies has being the comic series that I can spotlight on Halloween. So this is what we’re doing going forward as I have a few of these issues.
I only own this issue due to the cover, which is an homage to Uncanny X-Men 141.
There is an ad for Spider-Man 3 on the inside front cover.
Ashley J. Williams from Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, played by Bruce Campbell in the films – is teleported to the Marvel Zombie Universe.
What I really like about this comic is that it does directly tie in to the origins of the Marvel Zombies.
Ash sees a fight between Thunderball and Daredevil. He then goes to the Avengers and they don’t care for his wise cracking ways.
There is a two page Honda car ad, what a waste that must have been! Element SC, if you are curious.
Sentry comes crashing into the planet. He has already been infected with the Zombie virus. I’m not sure which Marvel Zombies miniseries later reveals it is Sentry, but I like how that universe’s origin is in a constant loop. Sentry is being constantly thrown back in time and they are just reliving these moments in a time loop.
Sentry inflects Warbird, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Luke Cage.
There is a Playstation and Game Boy Advance Ghost Rider game, I wonder how that is?
Ash tells Spider-Man that the virus that is inflecting his hero friends may be the same type of virus that he has to deal with all of the time.
Captain America, who is Colonel America here – bites Spider-Man.
Issue ends with Ash being dropped to the ground (Spider-Man was carrying him) and is all webbed up at the moment. Ash lands and looks up to see Zombie Hawkeye, Luke Cage and Warbird.
I don’t own any issues but I can only imagine Ash makes it out of this okay. I know Zombies Colonel American and Spider-Man make it out as they are actively involved in future Marvel Zombie miniseries.

For anyone who is interested, Walker Dennis will be a Sock Monkey for his first Halloween.
Be safe out there!
