Marvel Zombies = Flesh Eating Superheroes?

I just finished reading MARVEL ZOMBIES, written by Robert Kirkman this morning. I can't make my mind up about this title. I love Kirkmans's WALKING DEAD, INVINCIBLE, and MARVEL TEAM-UP, but this one didn't grab me yet. I can't get past the idea of a flesh eating Spider-man and Captain America, it just weirds me out too much, I guess. Having said that tho', the comic is pretty hilarious and at the same time quite disturbing. I'm definitely going to read the rest of this 5 issue series just to see where Kirkman is going with this. How bout the rest of you? Anyone else read this yet? What are your opinions, HELLO? Is anyone out there?

I have been reading the walking dead since it started because I have always loved zombies. Kirkman is obviously a fan of the topic and knows just what we want out of a horror comic. So far Marvel Zombies is no walking dead but I still give the man props for what he is doing on a non creator owned book. I did laugh my ass off when zombie spidey said oh, jeez! I broke my half. Very disturbing, and funny when he says he got hungry so he ate MJ and Aunt May.
I can't wait for the next issue for the obvious coming of Galactus. Heres hoping the Watcher shows up so they can eat him. That will teach you to get involved you big headed freak.

What I like about Kirman's WALKING DEAD is that it's like the original DAWN OF THE DEAD movie from 1978... it's about the PEOPLE, not about the GORE!

And, yeah dave of the dead, the rest of what you write is spot on!

Man, imagine what would happen if this concept was written by Stan Lee...
