Super Zombies #1 Review

Writer: Marc Guggenheim & Vince Gonzales
Artist: Mel Rubi
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment


Dynamite are being very bold in bringing Super Zombies onto the comic racks: firstly, it can’t help but evoke thoughts of Marvel’s successful Marvel Zombies line, and secondly, not many companies have been successful bringing new powered individuals onto the market place.
I’m glad to say that, tonally, Marvel Zombies and Super Zombies share little in common. Super Zombies is set not too far in the future and is a tale of science gone wrong, of a corrupted mind seemingly going too far, and of powered individuals (it’s not yet clear whether they’re heroes) fighting for the future.
The books premise holds well throughout, but this premiere issue gets slightly bogged down by the size of it’s cast. It introduces so many characters that you can’t quite connect to any one.
Hopefully, as the book progresses it will gain more focus in this aspect and if it does, this will be a book to watch.
