- IDW has obtained the rights to produce a new line of licensed comics based on the Jurassic Park franchise. You can learn more at icv2.com.
- Chris Evans has been offered the role of Captain America, which includes a deal of three Captain America movies, three Avengers movies, and various smaller appearances in other upcoming Marvel movies. As of the writing of this post, Evans has NOT yet accepted the deal.

Marvel Zombies Return #1 of 5

Wow. That was one nasty ass comic. Writer Fred Van Lente took over the Marvel Zombie title from Robert Kirkman with Volume 3. I was little let down with Kirkman’s Volume 2 and Van Lente’s Volume 3 had picked up the pace. It made the comic series a little less silly and set up what potentially could have been an awesome Volume 4. While Volume 4 wasn’t bad, it seemed to lose some momentum by the last couple of issues. But Van Lente has more than made up for it with this new issue.
