I thought I’d Candy wrap the rest of these topics off with a proper sendoff, here are the leftovers based on my recommendations. This piece o’ pieces, is what I would call the “Rough Cut”. Although each section will not be as “fleshed out” as my previous ToTs articles, you can simply click Thumbnails to find out “who’s who”! That’s what pictures are for besides looking all purdy.

|Documents of the Dead||Netflix|

Eventually, it was bound to happen.Fucking Zombified Superheroes!!
Despite the plot device coming off somewhat generic, that’s still no reason to avoid reading the trades.
The story begins as an unknown superhero from another dimension, brought by the “Hunger”, crash lands before infecting the Avengers.
The infection spreads via contact with the blood of the victim, usually through a bite by an infected individual. The zombie super heroes aren’t like your slow and mindless garden variety Zombies since they can largely retain their intellect and personality, although they are consistently driven by the “Hunger” for human flesh.
As the plot progresses, these Marvelous undead has already devoured all non-transhuman human life on Earth and are now without food and are still hungrier than ever! MZ is mostly remembered for its dark humor approach, somewhat akin to the Evil Dead films, but with more depictions of gory violence.
Biggest WTF moments: Galactus being served as the main course and Zombified Hank Pym feasting on Tchalla’s leg. Sounds familiar? Well it’s no mere coincidence since MZ was written by Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead. One of the best hooks of this series was the “Re imagined” versions of classic Marvel comic covers courtesy of Arthur Suydam.
Question: What’s the scariest program you have watched on Television lately? (With the noted exception of the 2016 Presidential Debates, Trump’s tirades and the fear-mongering Fox News!😉)
