OMFG Of The Day: The Zombified Heroes Return In ‘Marvel Zombies Supreme’!

With the newest series of “MARVEL ZOMBIES” just days away, and an all new 5 page preview as a result, I am beginning to wonder (Et worry) about the longevity of the series being…well…dead.

“They were the Squadron Supreme, heroes exiled from another dimension to our own..but the twisted science of the Project Pegasus facility infected these defenders with a virulent zombie strain. Now it’s up to Jill Harper’s desperate special ops team to keep the plague contained within the facility — whatever the cost. But Harper discovers that the Squadron wasn’t the only unconscionable experiment being kept off the Pegasus records…and her shocking find may be the key to saving the human race.”
