Marvel Manga Series Zombies Assemble Arrives In English With New Variant Covers

by Staff

 

The undead invade the Marvel Universe in the original manga work, Zombies Assemble. Being published in an English-language edition for the first time, the new series arrives in the USA in May.

The English-language edition is adapted from the manga series Avengers: Zombies Assemble originally written by Yusaku Komiyama (Ixion Saga) and adapted by Jim Zub (Thunderbolts). It will be presented in its original black and white.  It will, however, have a new feature, which includes variant covers by a wide swath of artists.

Greg Horn, David Nakayama, Greg Land, Nic Klein, and Tony Moore of The Walking Dead have been announced so far.

Here’s the official description for the series:

Time and again, the Avengers have assembled to save the Earth from destruction. But they’ve never had to face down a threat as gruesome and terrifying as an endless horde of the undead! Now, with their backs against the wall, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes must fight to contain an outbreak of horrifying zombies, while preventing the infection from spreading any further! Is all hope lost?

Marvel teases that “not all of the Avengers will escape uninfected”.

We have a look at the interiors on the first issue:
