I just don't get the whole zombies thing. Marvel Zombies
is an insult to Kirby, Ditko, and every other creator of a Marvel superhero who lumbers around looking to eat brains in those books. I mean, what's the treat in seeing Peter Parker talked about how he ate his wife and aunt? This is a Marvel comic? (That said, the intro of the zombies -- the Ultimates "Frightful Four" -- was damn effective. But it should've stopped there.)
Like Dieter, I don't read a lot of current comics, and the crossovers make me ill, but Dieter, you have
to check out the Green Lantern "Rebirth" story from last year, now collected as a graphic novel
. Geoff Johns' unenviable goal was to restore the disgraced, insane, and dead Hal Jordan back to his rightful place in the DC pantheon of heroes, and wow, did he pull it off. And in the process, he gave comics continuity buffs a huge treat, connecting a bunch of loose threads from GL history into a terrific whole.
