"Zombies" on the rampage

It takes a certain sick type of individual to appreciate “Marvel Zombies.” Sadly, I’m one of them.
I’m a little slow to jump on the bandwagon. I started with issue No. 3, which arrived in stores this week. A reprint of the sold-out issue No. 1 is also on stands.
“Marvel Zombies,” picking up from a story in “Ultimate Fantastic Four,” features an alternative Marvel universe in which an alien virus has transformed Marvel’s heroes into flesh-eating zombies. And they’re hungry. Very hungry.
It’s so over the top that you’ve got to laugh. There’s the Hulk, the hungriest of all. Captain America, with a portion of his head sliced off, and half an Iron Man. The Black Panther is still human, but with a few parts removed to feed the others. And the Wasp is reduced to a talking head - but still hungry.
