"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Marvel announced today that they are bringing Marvel Zombies back from the dead one more time with a fifth mini-series, by writer Fred Van Lente and artist Kano.
“What I’ve tried to do ever since they gave me the Zombies assignment was to do something different every time,” Van Lente told Marvel.com. “Folks who read [MARVEL ZOMBIES 4] know that at the end Jack Russell, Werewolf by Night, was infested with the zombie virus. Morbius the Living Vampire wants to cure his friend and in order to do that he needs to somehow figure out a way to unlock a cure for zombie-ism. He recruits his old pal Machine Man from MARVEL ZOMBIES 3, who is back and is again the star of the series, and sends him across the multiverse to take samples from different kinds of zombies.”
Van Lente says Machine Man and a mystery companion will encounter zombies in places like Camelot, the Old West and Killraven’s War of the Worlds. The five-issue series kicks off in April.
