Marvel Zombies 3

Marvel Zombies 3 #1-4


exist soft spots in our world - where reality stretches paper thin and
sometimes unknown forces from outside our universe can slip through.  One such place is a swamp in Florida where a
pair of super zombies crawls out of the muck and eat a bunch of hicks.

official Florida super team “The Command” (sponsored by the Fifty-State
Initiative after the events of Civil War) investigates and are quickly
dismantled by zombies.  Now it's up to
Michael Morbius (the Living Vampire) working for A.R.M.O.R. to discover a cure
before our world succumbs to the super plague. 
His only hope - to get a living human blood sample from the original
dimension of the plague.  Now Machine Man
and Jacosta must travel to a world overrun by the evil dead while back at home
A.R.M.O.R. is under siege!

Lente writes good dialogue and has a comprehensive story, some lame old
characters get eaten, introduces zombie Deadpool.

covers are not as good as Suydam's, a lot of third-rate characters no one cares
about, hefty price tag for only four issues of material, not a big fan of
Machine Man's post-Nextwave (Warren Ellis) attitude adjustment

story ups the stakes by having the super zombie plague show up in the real
Marvel universe.  It's short at only four
issues (and pricey), but actually written fairly well.  The art is mildly decent, but no major
characters are featured which downgrades significance.  Van Lente brings back the horror-movie
suspense by offing a few minor characters right in the beginning and setting a
creepy tone.

I found this on YouTube as a Deck Tech from user Poppmagic and thought it was an interesting build. Always enjoyed the original Elder Dragon...
